2-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Bird's Nests

We are escaping our LOOOOONG northern winter in search for some spring break sun.  We found the sun in southern Florida, and, fortunately, the kids are content with ignoring the fact that it was in the 40's when we set out on a shell hunt this morning.  Did you hear me?  FORTIES PEOPLE! I guess it's all relative.  Forties is still way better than sub-zero and two feet of snow.  The sun actually felt warm on the miniature golf course despite the fact that the high today was 64! 

It wasn't too cold for swimming.  And it definitely wasn't too cold to try out these 2-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Bird's Nests.  Crunchy and sweet, these adorable nests will add some WOW to your Easter Buffet! With only two ingredients (three if you count the delicious Cadbury Mini-Eggs!), you still have time to whip up a batch yourself!

Just start with a bag of semi-sweet chocolate.  Melt it in the microwave and stir until smooth.

Add in about 8 ounces of Chow Mein noodles and stir until they are coated.

Divide mixture into 12 greased muffin tins. 
Using your fingers, press the middle down and the sides up to form a nest shape.

Chill for an hour or until firm.  
Using a knife, pry them out of the muffin tin and place three mini Cadbury eggs inside.

How Cute is that?
