Chocolate nests

Get excited about Easter with these fun chocolate and coconut nests.

Recruit handy little helpers to make these fun chocolate Easter nests. The recipe is very easy to make and is a great activity (adult supervision is needed for melting the chocolate).

The white chocolate nests are delicious treats.

Make sure you are using a good quality white chocolate. Avoid white chocolate chips unless you know for sure that it is a good quality brand. White chocolate should have a yellow tint to it and easily melt when touching.

You can easily make these as outlined below or you can add food colouring to the mixture when you mix with the noodles and coconut. These will give you brightly coloured nests, which are quite fun.
