Chocolate Birds Nests

Lauren ShaferGuest blogger and chocolate lover Lauren Shafer hijacked my blog today  to share her favorite Easter treat!
Lauren says:
Chocolate bird nests are super easy to make, not a lot of ingredients, and they taste amazing. I can’t take all credit for this recipe though. Technically, it’s my moms recipe, but I think mine are just as yummy!
My mom made these every Easter when I was a kid. She made several batches–one for each side of the family.
.
The big problem: Mom had a tough time saving them until AFTER the meal, because I would sneak in the kitchen and eat them. I had to! Once mom served them- they were gone in five minutes!
Making these always brings back memories of me and sis licking the bowl afterward. Good times!
After a few failed attempts and melt downs (I became upset because they didn’t look exactly like mom’s) I finally mastered the recipe. I’ve been making them ever since.
These are perfect for Easter or whenever you have a chocolate craving. Mom adds
peanuts, but in my opinion it’s a waste of space!  The more chocolate the better!

Coconut Cream Eggs

Coconut Cream doesn’t get any better than this. Far better than ANY you’ll find in the store. This recipe is my grandmother’s–she’s 97 years old! She made them every year for Easter. When I first asked her for the recipe she wrote “no calories” at the bottom!  My grandmother would never lie!

The most challenging part of this recipe is hiding the eggs in the fridge from the kiddos or spouse until Easter!
