Pip and I want to show you an easy treat that we made today!

Chocolate Birds' Nests!

If you want to make some, here's what you'll need:

Just kidding! Here's what you'll need:

Crunchy chinese noodles + Milk chocolate morsels + Candy robin's eggs (or jelly beans)

Here's what you do:

1. Melt a bag of milk chocolate morsels in the microwave and stir.

2. Add 5 ounces of noodles and stir until covered well.

3. To make a nest, spoon out a large heaping spoonful of the mixture onto a waxed paper covered tray or pan, making sure to leave a well in the middle for the eggs. They pretty much look like nests on their own. Repeat until nests are complete.

4. Put eggs in the nests.

5. Leave on waxed paper and refrigerate to firm up. Ready in minutes!

Make sure that they're not refrigerator cold when you serve as they'll be very hard and you'll actually believe that you are eating twigs. Room temperature and not melting is perfect. I wanted to use large eggs so I made six big nests. If you make smaller ones that might hold jelly beans or smaller eggs, you can probably get eight nests out of the recipe. Super easy and no-fail. They probably took ten minutes tops. And cute! You can also put little Peeps chicks in your nests instead of eggs.

Oh Easter Eve! The wait is torture!

Until next time,
x's and o's,

Pip standing/peering over the table is adorable. I think if you offered your creative creations for sale or took custom orders that you'd make a mint!

I'll have to find a reason to make these after Easter, I don't know if I can wait till next year, they look so yummy!

That cat looks like he (or she?) is having some seriously naughty thoughts.
