Foodie Friday: Chocolate Nests

Here's a little last minute treat perfect for your Easter gathering this weekend. Chocolate nests will add an extra Easter flair that's sure to please the palette of your guests.  I made them for a Birds + Bees= Baby shower last year, and they were definitely a hit!  These were made in a mini muffin pan. I placed a white chocolate covered cherry in the nest. I loved the contrast of the white chocolate against milk chocolate. You can use any small oval or round candy.  This time of year you'll find all sorts of candy eggs that will work well. Jelly beans or Jordan almonds will also do the trick.

Include them on a sweets & treats table or wrap them up in cello treat bags as a party favor. Either way your event will end on a sweet note!
