Bird Nest Cookies

This recipe was part of our home school curriculum & was used to illustrate how birds make their nests. The kids loved making these simple treats. The are very crunchy & delicious. I like keeping them sealed in a large baggie in the refrigerator.

2 c chow mein noodles
1 1/2 c crushed shredded wheat cereal
1 c peanut butter
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a large bowl mix noodles & cereal. In a small saucepan melt peanut butter & chocolate chips over low heat. Pour melted mixture over noodles & cereal. Mix until coated. Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper. Drop large spoonfuls of cookie mixture onto the waxed paper. I added fall colored sprinkles to them or you can leave them plain. Refrigerate until hardened.
