Easter Egg Nests

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by DebS #2

These are so pretty as an Easter treat. I've seen these topped with "Peeps" as well. They're a fun, but messy project but who doesn't mind licking chocolate off of their fingers??? Choose your favorite flavor of Jelly Bellys to decorate them with and then drop a few Jelly Bellys on the serving place as garnish. The original recipe is from my grandmother - adapted to make Easter Egg Nests.

I really like this recipe because it does not include peanut butter in the ingredients. That is always a challenge when you have little ones with peanut allergies! I did use half butterscotch chips and half semi-sweet chocolate to give it a nice flavor and color. Shaping is not as easy as it looks, but overall, very fun! Like DebS said, who doesn't love licking chocolate off their fingers!
