    DebS #2's Note:

    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!

      This recipe was just okay. First of all, it is reallly not very sweet. I should have used my common sense and used half butterscotch chips, this would sweeten them up and add a bit of brown to it. Shaping the nests was really messy. I would not recommend making more than one batch at a time, as the chocolate begins to cool as you are forming the nests.. and the ones near the end were ugly looking. I ended up drizzling them with caramel and filling the wholes with caramel to add some sweetness to cut the chocolate taste. I will make again next easter,,, but with butterscotch chips!
