Spring Treat Recipe!

I thought that since it's Spring and we have a holiday weekend coming up, it was the perfect time to share a recipe with you! When I share a recipe on the blog, I also like to make it at home and then bring the finished treats into Bravelets HQ for everyone to enjoy. But I am no baker/chef, and it turns out I bit off more than I could chew. The treats turned out terribly. Which is embarrassing, because I promised people spring treats! When you see the actual recipe, you are going to laugh at me. It's very easy.

Okay, enough of me rambling...

Bird Nest "Cookies"

Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time:  
Total time:  
Serves: about 30 nests
 
A quick and easy recipe to create bird nest cookies for Easter or an Outdoor Garden Party
Ingredients
  • 1 package (16 oz.) Chocolate Candy (I used CandiQuick, but you could use Wilton Candy Melts or your favorite Chocolate Candy.)
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 3 cups chow mein noodles
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs
Instructions
  1. Melt chocolate and peanut butter in microwave. Heat for 1 minute and stir to see if you need any additional time. Heat for 15 second intervals if not fully melted.
  2. Combine all ingredients (except eggs) in a mixing bowl.
  3. Stir well to coat all of the noodles.
  4. Drop by spoonful onto wax paper. Wait about a minute or two and form into nests. The dip in the middle doesn't need to be too big, but make sure there isn't a hole through the nest.
  5. Let harden.
  6. Add eggs into your nests.
  7. Enjoy!

I don't know what happened, but my nests did not turn out like the photo above. And sometimes treats don't look pretty, but they still taste good...so I thought I was totally brave enough to try one! Then I almost chipped a tooth on the chow mein, it was so crunchy! I might've bought the wrong kind of chow mein...or maybe this is a sign telling me to stop eating so many sweets. Who knows.

Pictured below: my attempt.


See? Embarrassing.

But we are past it; I dipped frozen bananas in the remainder of the melted chocolate, so the night wasn't all bad. Anyway, they say this recipe is great for a kid's group activity and you can also substitute the chow mein for pretzels! I bet that would be tasty! 

Let me know if you plan on making these or any other Easter weekend goodies!

Be brave,
