What about a chocolate Easter Egg nest made of crunchy noodles, honey and shredded coconut? Yum, even my non eater was hanging around when these were being made 😉 … and he doesn’t usually have a sweet tooth 🙂  The boy exists on air only usually!

These are so simple and make a unique Easter gift.  My little Easter Egg nests are going to the neighbours, and the children’s school bus driver.

I also thought one giant Easter Egg nest would make a great centrepiece on the table over the Easter period if the weather isn’t too hot. Having chocolate out of the fridge is still a little “touch and go” here at the moment.

I really enjoy making things for people, and I love that this is easy enough for the kids to help make and decorate.  When the kids are on Easter break we will go into production.

  2. How very gorgeous! Well done, Julie, definitely cute!

  3. How cute are these!! Love that little chickie!

  4. A hand made gift is so special. You are lucky to still have summer weather. Ours disappeared last Saturday 🙂

  5. Dear Julie,

    That little chick looks so cute!!!

  6. So cute for Easter!

  7. Double adorable!!! So cute pinning these.

  8. So very cute Julie! My girls are going to make some for Easter now too- thank goodness wonderful Changs make a gfree version of those noodles for me 🙂 x

  9. these are so adorable! best treats for the kids!

  10. So cute! I love projects that the kids can help with – we often do homemade treats for teachers, bus drivers, coaches, etc. around Christmas so the kids are personally invested in the gifts they give to these special people in their lives. Fun idea to make a giant version and use it as an adorable and so-festive centerpiece (extreme heat and melty chocolate is rarely ever a problem at Ohio Easters! :D).

  11. Boy this takes me back… my mother used to make the same thing, even down to the little tiny chicks and eggs too! She also made a “Simnel Cake” which I always find revolting so let’s not talk about that :p

  12. You’ve got some serious cuteness going on, Miss Julie. Oh, so clever of you to use noodles. And very kind of you, too, to present your children’s school bus driver with such a thoughtful gift =)

  13. I have fond memories of munching on these as a child. So glad you’ve shared the recipe, I think I’ll whip up a batch to get in the Easter spirit.
