So, how cute are these chocolate bird nests? They are pretty adorable! Full disclosure, before making these, I did not think I would have enough artistic talent to make them look good, but I was very happy with the results! It has been awhile since i have made them. This Easter, I may try them with butterscotch chips in place of the peanut butter chips or just extra chocolate chips. They are easy to assemble and so fun to eat. This treat is perfect for Easter or just for celebrating spring! Enjoy.
Recipe for Chocolate Bird Nests with Cadbury Eggs for Easter
One 12-ounce bag of semisweet chocolate chips
One 12-ounce bag of peanut butter chips
One 12-ounce bag of chow mein noodles
36 – 48 Cadbury mini eggs (amount depends on how many nests you are able to make)
Line a couple to a few baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Add the chocolate and peanut butter chips to a large microwave safe bowl. Place bowl in the microwave and heat for one minute on medium power, then take out bowl and stir. Continue this process of heating and stirring until the mixture is completely melted and smooth. Stir the chow mein noodles into the melted chocolate/peanut butter and stir until the chow mein noodles are completely coated. Use a large spoon to drop about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture onto the parchment paper. Use the spoon to flatten and shape into nests. Place 3 eggs on top. Continue until you have used all of the chocolate/peanut butter/chow mein mixture. Place in the fridge to harden, or in the freezer to speed up the process. Recipe makes 12 – 15 bird nest candies.
