Tea Party Cookies- for the birds!

I'm sure that you've noticed all the beautiful bird's nest products in the home magazines! In fact, they tie in nicely with my tablescape theme, "Birds of a Feather Sip Together" using our Anniversary Tea Cozy Collection.
My recipe file was going through my head when I suddenly remembered some adorable & tasty cookies that mom had made for Easter when I was just a chicklet. :)
Birds nest cookies
These are so easy and fun! Yes, they can be messy, but isn't that part of the fun with the kids!
Bird's Nest Cookies  
1 5 0z can Chow Main noodles (we used La Choy) 
2 cups semisweet chocolate morsels or light cocoa candy melts (we used Wilton)
36 small blue,yellow and green jelly beans (we picked these to go with our theme, you may do so too)
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or waxed paper. Melt  chocolate pieces using microwave or double boiler method. Mix in noodles slowly so they do not break. Scoop out cookies, drop onto parchment lined sheet. Form each into a small bird's nest. Place 2 or 3 jelly beans in center before chocolate dries. Let cookies set for 1/2 hour before serving. makes 12 -16 cookies.
Imagine a pretty Easter or Mother's Day tablescape with  lots of spring flowers and bird's nests!
