Edible Birds Nests

Since spring is still toying with us in the Midwest, I decided to take matters into my own hands and bring a little bit of Spring into my day by making my own bird's nests.


 In chocolate covered delicious form.


I am self admittedly not a baker, so I appreciate any recipe that calls for only 3 ingredients {chow mein noodles, Cadbury Mini Eggs and chocolate flavored almond bark}


and requires no baking {other than melting some chocolate}.


The rest of the recipe is equally as easy.  Stir in the chow mein noodles until they are coated with the chocolate.


Scoop out a spoonful of chocolate covered chow mein noodles onto wax paper and have your helper nestle a few eggs into place.


And, then, sample a few of the eggs, to give you enough energy to finish making all your nests.


Not only are these little bird's nests adorable BUT they are also delicious.


I guess while I wait for some real birds to make a nest, I'll happily pass the time enjoying these.

  4. Yum! These are so cute. But I have two questions: did you melt chocolate bars or almond bark? And if it was almond bark, um, what is almond bark and where do you get it? :)
