It’s time for a little Easter cuteness!
Poor little chickie needs a nest for her chocolate Easter Eggs.
What about a chocolate Easter Egg nest made of crunchy noodles, honey and shredded coconut? Yum, even my non eater was hanging around when these were being made ;) … and he doesn’t usually have a sweet tooth :) The boy exists on air only usually!
These are so simple and make a unique Easter gift. My little Easter Egg nests are going to the neighbours, and the children’s school bus driver.
I also thought one giant Easter Egg nest would make a great centrepiece on the table over the Easter period if the weather isn’t too hot. Having chocolate out of the fridge is still a little “touch and go” here at the moment.
- 220gm dark chocolate
- 30gm salted butter
- 1½ Tbs honey
- ¼ cup shredded coconut
- ¼ cup Chang crispy noodles
- 1½ Cup Large Chang Crunch Asian noodles
- 6 chocolate Easter eggs
- 18 speckled mini Easter eggs
- Line small rice bowls with plastic wrap.
- Put the dry ingredients into a large bowl.
- Add the chocolate, butter and honey to a microwave safe bowl and heat in bursts.
- Stir the chocolate mixture until smooth.
- Carefully add the melted chocolate mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir through gently ensuring the chocolate cover all the noodle mix.
- Put enough chocolate mixture in each of the bowls to make a nest.
- Press gently with the back of a spoon.
- Continue to fill the remaining rice bowls.
- Refrigerate the nests until firm.
- Once the nests a re firm use the plastic wrap to lift the nest away from the mould.
- Add a chocolate egg and three of the mini speckled eggs to the nest.
- Place the nest into a clear cello bag and add a gift tag and a chickie.
- Keep refrigerated until needed.
So why do I like these little nests?
Mostly because they are cute and non commercial. A simple handmade gift.
I really enjoy making things for people, and I love that this is easy enough for the kids to help make and decorate. When the kids are on Easter break we will go into production.
