I made these cute treats for the guests at Jamie’s Bridal Shower.
2 bags of Candy Melts
1 bag of Chow Mein Noodles
Cocoa Riced Cereal
1 Bag Cadbury Mini Eggs
These are the ingredients I gathered. I had no idea how much I would need. What I have was way too much!
I poured in about 4 cups of the cocoa cereal, and about a half of the bag of chow mein noodles. (I didn’t use all of these dry ingredients)
I melted the candy melts in a makeshift double boiler. (a bowl over a pan of water on the stove) I then poured most of the chocolate into the smaller mixing bowl. Gradually adding the cereal mix until a nice consistency was formed.
This was my first experience with these candy melts. I was shocked how quick this chocolate hardens back up. After the nests firmed, I used a plastic spoon to loosen them from the tin.
I had left some of the chocolate in the bowl so that I could “glue” my eggs in the nests. I carefully dipped each egg into the chocolate then put them into the nest. I resisted eating any of the Cadbury eggs, and it’s a good thing I did! After putting 3 eggs in each nest, there was ONE egg left over! I got 30 nests from my 2 bags of candy melts. I chose to use cocoa cereal because I thought it would blend in better with the chocolate.
