Chocolate Bird Nests For Easter

For more recipes and holiday ideas visit us at www.PassionForExcellence.blogspot.com


What you need:

1-24 oz bag Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

2- 12 oz bags Chow Mein Noodles

1 bag Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs

Wax Paper


Technique

Pour half of the bag of semi sweet chocolate chips into a medium sized, microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir choc and continue to microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until fully melted.


Pour 1 bag of chow mein noodles into the bowl with the chocolate.

Gently stir together until noodles are fully coated with chocolate.


Lay out a laaaarge piece of wax paper. 

Now comes the fun part.


Either with the spoon or your hand, place a scoop onto the wax paper. With your hands, form it into the shape of a nest, making a little bit of an indent in the center. Your hands will be coated with chocolate, there's no way around it!


Continue forming nests until you have used all of the chocolate mixture. Semi sweet chocolate does not harden immediately (like melting chocolate does) so you have plenty of time to form all nests before you need to place the eggs in them.


After you have used all of the mixture, and washed your hands, place three Reese peanut butter eggs in each nest.


Depending on how many nests you want, repeat the process with the other half bag of chocolate chips.


Let the eggs sit (I leave them overnight, covered with wax paper) to harden. The next morning I stack them in a deep Tupperware container with wax paper between layers.


Then let the fun begin as you serve them on Easter!
