Chocolate Bird’s Nest and Eggs

Hey Cuties,

I hope you had a great weekend, spring is officially here. In the DC area you couldn’t tell but it is legit nevertheless.  The kids are getting ready for Spring Break and we’ve been making pre-Easter treats.

I’ve been wanting to give this Chocolate Bird’s Nest and Eggs situation a try for a minute.  I saw a lot of variations but I decided to go with some goodies I already had in my pantry.

Chocolate, Chex & Cheerio Bird’s Nest and Eggs

Ingredients: Chocolate Candy Melts, Honey Nut Chex, Honey Nut Cheerios, & Whooper Robin Eggs

My goodies, my goodies…

Ingredients: Chocolate Candy Melts, Honey Nut Chex, Honey Nut Cheerios, & Whooper Robin Eggs

I didn’t measure out anything, I just decided to go with the flow. It all worked out though.

Chocolate Birds' Nest 2

Cereal combo

I already had these two in the pantry so I went with them. The Chex mix look a bit nest like so it worked out.

Chocolate Birds' Nest 3

Cereal mix + melted chocolate

I melted the chocolate melts in the microwave per the instructions on the back of the bag.

Mixing the melted chocolate and cereal

I didn’t measure anything I just eye balled it; I didn’t want a huge batch because you only have a short amount of time to work and mold your nest. If the chocolate hardens up before you are done you could pop it back in the microwave and heat it up. {I don’t like to reheat the chocolate multiple times.}

Shape your nest

You can shape your nest several ways; I went with bowls but you could also use muffin pans. I lined my bowl with wax paper so I didn’t have a mess to clean up.  I thought getting the shape was going to be hard, but it wasn’t at all. I spooned out my mixture and put it in the bowl. Making sure I didn’t fill the middle as much and I focused on only putting it around the edges.

Once you have it shaped the way you want put it in the fridge. It doesn’t take long to harden at all. Simply life up on the wax paper and remove your nest with ease. Add your eggs and you are all set.

All done. Chocolate Bird’s Nest and Eggs

This was really easy and the kids enjoyed eating the nest afterwards. Add in your favorite Easter/Spring/Earth Day treat.
