Easter Treat – Chocolate Birds’ Nests

Here’s a fun and super easy kitchen craft/treat you can make this week for Easter! With just a few ingredients, you can make delicious little chocolate birds’ nests.

Chocolate Birds’ Nests

1 bag chocolate chips
Chow mein noodles
Easter candy

1. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second intervals.
2. Stir chow mein noodles into chocolate.
3. Spoon onto wax paper, making a little well in the center.
4. Place Easter candy (I used chewy sour Sweetarts but you can use Jordan almonds or other chocolate egg candy) in the “nest”.
5. Let sit until hardened.

This is another great find in the Holiday/Easter craft section of Better Homes & Gardens. So easy, quick, and tasty!

I forgot about these little treats! I used to make them when my older kids where small. I think that I will create some this weekend with my ten-year old…she would love it! Thanks for reminding me :)

Cant wait to try these! I have seen them before using marshmallows instead of chocolate but these look so much yummier and I like the dark color of the nests
