Easter is Coming - No Bake Chocolate Robin Egg Nests

I have been away from my blog for the past couple of weeks trying to get over the flu.  I'm so happy to be getting better the same time spring finally arrives.   I was walking into a store this afternoon and saw a sign that announced that Easter is just 16 days away.  How in the world did that happen?  We just had a snow storm last night!  


With the announcement that spring is here....it is time to get my "hippity hoppity" on and post a few of my favorite Easter recipes and DIY projects.  The first is this super simple No Bake Chocolate Robin Egg Nest recipe that I make every year.  It is so easy to make that your little ones can get in on the action and they are perfectly showy enough to take to your Easter parties.  To make these treats you will need.....

No Bake Chocolate Robin Egg Nests

1 Package of Dry Oriental Noodles 
1 Package of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 Package of Cadbury Chocolate Eggs
Parchment Paper

To make these treats melt the chocolate chips in a water bath by filling a skillet half way with water and heating to a low boil.  Place a smaller pan with the chocolate chips in the water until melted.  Stir to remove any lumps.

Place the oriental noodles in a bowl and pour the melted chocolate over the noodles.  Mix until the noodles are well coated.  Lay out a sheet of parchment paper.   Use a large spoon to spoon a "nest" from the bowl onto the parchment paper.  You can use the edges of the spoon of your fingers to shape the nests.  

Before they dry place a few of the Cadbury Eggs into the middle of the nest and let cool.  The melted chocolate will stick the eggs in place as they dry.  Once the nest is hard, remove from the parchment paper and enjoy!
