Chocolate Birds Nest

These sweet little chocolate birds nests are a perfect decoration and dessert for Easter! 

 1 bag chow mein noodles
3 packages mini chocolate bars
1 bag Cadbury mini eggs (or jelly beans)
Mini muffin pan
Cooking spray
Wax paper  (optional)

1. Break up chocolate and place in a microwave-safe container. Heat the chocolate in 30 second intervals until thoroughly melted. Be careful to not burn the chocolate. It took me two 30 second intervals. 

2. Carefully add the chow mein noodles, stirring until completely coated in the chocolate. 
 
3. Lightly spray mini muffin pan with cooking spray.

4. Spoon mixture into mini muffin pan. (note: if you don't have a mini pan, you can also spoon it into little nests onto the wax paper)

5. Refrigerate until firm, about one hour or so.

 6. One chilled, gently remove the nests from muffin pan. I used a paring knife to pop them out.

7. Place three Cadbury mini eggs (or jelly beans) inside each nest.
 Hope you have a fabulous Easter!

  4. What a lovely and unique creation it is. Chocolate nests with full of jelly beans would be a perfect return gift for kids on my daughter's birthday party.
