Easter Bird Nest~ Spoon Suckers

Bird Nest Spoon Suckers 2

I’ve been on the lookout for a clever, simple Easter treat that’s both kid AND mama friendly ever since Valentine’s day, and by dang, I believe we’ve found it. Scrumptious little birdy nests made from some of your favorite things–one being chocolate…of course. And did I already say simple? Well, I made about 9 of these in less than 10 minutes. No lie.

You could wrap a pretty little sucker bag around these before dropping them in the Easter baskets…or not. They are actually more sturdy than I expected ( isn’t it lovely when candy behaves itself properly?). I think the kids will most likely pluck the eggs off first thing, and then nibble on the spoon second, so a bag might just throw off their gobble-groove anyway.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate or butterscotch chips

1 package Cadbury Mini Eggs

Chocolate sprinkles or Jimmies–as they are called by folks in-the-know.

1 box clear plastic spoons–if you can find round soups spoons, they look the best. But as you can see, regular ones work fine too.

Directions:

Melt the chips in a small saucepan. Dip the spoons, one at a time in the melted candy making sure to cover both sides evenly.

Arrange three eggs on the spoon.

Before your chips harden, dip the spoon into the sprinkles.

This one’s a bit lopsided, but it’s still so cute!

Place on pan or board and allow to set.

Keep right on going till you run out of one of your ingredients. I could have made about 25 of these but something mysterious happened to my bag of Mini Eggs and so halfway through, I ran out. Something verrry fishy is going on around here.

You’ll need to guard yours, no doubt.

  1. Well…I’m certain it would look TERRIBLE. Baahahaha! Ok, ok…it would be just adorable, but it would still taste like…you know…coconut. Which would be dreadful. Which goes without saying. snicker…snicker. :}

  2. Ummmm…they’re all gone. Except for the ones stuck on the spoon. But I hear there are some good deals on Amazon. Those little critters are my favorite too. Crazy things.
