recipe: chocolate easter egg nests

Chocolate Easter Egg Nests:

 

I've been wanting to try out a new recipe that Russ could easily participate in making. Creating this recipe was definitely the perfect choice for us. These little goodies turned out even better than I expected them to and It's taking all of my will-power to keep my hands off of them. I hope to make Chocolate Nests every Easter with my family from now on.

 

  1. ingredients:
  2. 12oz bag chocolate chips
  3. 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
  4. 3 c. chow mein noodles
  5. 1 bag Cadbury eggs (Or egg-like candy of choice)

 

Directions:

  1. Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners and set aside.
  2. Combine chocolate chips and peanut butter in a slow cooker set to warm. Stir every few minutes until completely melted.
  3. Add chow mein noodles and mix until noodles are evenly covered in chocolate mixture.
  4. Scoop spoonfuls of mixture into cupcake liners and press down firmly with back of spoon.
  5. Top with Cadbury eggs.
  6. Let nests cool completely before eating. (throw them in the freezer for 10 min if you want to speed up the process)

Russell and I couldn't stop snacking on our extra chow mien noodles. They are addicting!

 

If you are wanting an alternative to the chow mien noodles, I'd recommend any of the following: Coconut, slivered almonds, rice crispy cereal or even shredded wheat cereal.

 

For our nests, I bought a variety of basic Cadbury Eggs but also some of the brighter Whopper Eggs. I wanted a lot of different colors for Russell to choose from. If you aren't the biggest chocolate egg fan you could just do jelly beans or marshmallows. The combinations are endless.
