Chef Kyla shows us how to make these adorable decorative nests, using a surprise ingredient: instant ramen noodles! Use them to display the chocolate egg truffles, or any other candy of your choice.
6 packages of ramen noodles
6 cups water
12 balls of foil about 1/3 the size of your muffin tin cups.
Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add ½ cup granulated sugar and allow to dissolve. Add food colouring if using. Drop ramen noodles into boiling water and let soften (1-2 minutes max). Strain in fine mesh sieve.
Put into muffin pans without lining them and place foil balls to form nest.
Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Shut oven off and leave overnight.
Fill with candies, cookies, or use as a place card holder.
