Easy No Bake Easter Birds Nest Recipe

Create excitement with these easy no bake Easter Bird Nest recipe for kids.

My mom made these nests for me when I was little, so I was excited to make these no bake Easter birds nest for my kids.

My mom was a Better Homes & Gardens kind of mom.

Better known today as a Pinterest kind of mom. Those glorious pictures would catch her eye. Then she would say I can make that and off to the store she would go to get all the ingredients. She even had three or four cookbooks she ordered from those colorful magazines. These still are the best recipes ever like this rice pudding dip.

After I made these with my kids, they tasted just like the ones my mom made so many years ago.

Using a large tablespoon, drop onto a silpat baking mat. Wait about a minute or two and form into nests. Press the end of the spoon a little into the nest to create a dip for the little eggs to rest. But make sure there is no hole on the bottom.

Place three chocolate eggs on top before it hardens. You have some time here, so no need to rush.

Let the little nests harden. Pro Tip: place them in the fridge or freezer to harden quicker. Once hardened they are ready to eat.
