Chocolate Nests for Easter

by | Apr 7, 2010 | Easter, Kids in the Kitchen | 4 comments

On Holy Saturday, while the boys were at the Rink for their Hockey lessons, the girls and I started making our Easter Treats.  We started with making some Chocolate Nests.  They were so easy, turned out cute, and were loved by everyone on Easter Sunday!

1 bag Chow Mein Noodles
1 Bag Light Cocoa Candy Melts
1 bag of Egg shaped Candy 
(We used Speckled Jordan Almonds)
1 package of Peeps (optional)

Melt Candy in Microwave or Double Boiler.
I’m including this picture just so I can point out my new apron, which I recently found at Pier 1 Imports… Isn’t it CUTE!?!  
Mix the melted chocolate into the chow mein noodles.
Shape into nests and top with candy eggs and peeps.
Try to decide which one you are going to have on Easter! 😉

    So cute Jessica! I like art that doubles as dessert and that calls for only a few ingredients. Perfect!

    I love that apron! I have a thing for aprons, sigh. And those look like fun to make, I bet the kids ad a blast eating them too!

    We made these a few years back and every year my kids ask to make them again… I really need to do that for them next year. I used peanut M&Ms. A friend of mine made them for a farm birthday party and got all her Peeps and pastel candies after Easter for next to nothing. Smart mom! 🙂
    Your apron is so pretty. I have a pink and brown floral one that is similar and it's like putting on a nice dress when I use it.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
