Chocolate Easter Nests

How cute are these???

My mom used to make chocolate clusters for the holidays every year. They were a huge hit with friends and family. So when I saw these cute Easter nests on Pinterest last year, I decided that I would make them for this Easter. This recipe is super easy and incredibly fast. I think the whole process took me about 20 minutes.

You can buy most of the ingredients at a bulk food store, which makes it very inexpensive.


  • Dark chocolate chips and/or wafers
  • Butterscotch chips
  • Chow mein noodles
  • Mini Eggs or Eggies

  1. Melt the dark chocolate chips with the butterscotch chips (either in microwave or double broiler) Use about 2:1 dark chocolate:butterscotch.
  2. Remove from heat
  3. Mix in chow mein noodles until covered
  4. Drop onto metal non stick baking sheet in small clusters
  5. Add 3 Mini Eggs to middle of each cluster
  6. Put baking sheet in fridge for 10-15 minutes
  7. Remove from fridge and they should pop off baking sheet easily
  8. Keep in fridge to maintain shape
