RECIPE: Bird’s Nest Easter Cupcakes
I promised a co-worker I’d bring her some of my Super Fudge Brownies to work today for her birthday, which was on Sunday. Instead, I decided to try something new – and seasonal! – and make these Bird’s Nest Easter Cupcakes.
Aren’t they cute?!? I just LOVE how they turned out!
Let’s make some, shall we? 🙂
Bird’s Nest Easter Cupcakes ingredients: Cake Mix (any will do), frosting (you can see I don’t stick with just one brand), Chow Mein Noodles, Candy Coated Chocolate eggs (Jelly Beans work too), Cupcake Papers, Chocolate Chips and Green Food Dye.
Having already baked and cooled your cupcakes, place a generous amount of chow mein noodles into your melted Chocolate. You want just as much, if not more, chow mein noodles than Chocolate. The goal is to see the noodles in the nest, not have big blobs of Chocolate for nests. NOT that that’s a bad thing, but we’ll do that for a future recipe, OK? 🙂
Remove the noodles from the melted Chocolate with a fork so the excess Chocolate can drain, if needed.
Place on wax paper, moving the center pieces to the sides to make the nest.
Place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, or until set. If using Milk Chocolate, these will always melt at the touch of your hand.
Time for the vegetation! Add green food dye, as desired, for the grass or leaves.
Frost the cupcakes.
Add your bird nests…
and eggs! There you have it – Bird’s Nest Easter Cupcakes!
You should give these a try! Fun and very pretty!
