Edible Easter Nest recipe
My kids were super excited to try this Edible Easter Nest recipe when I was trying out dessert ideas for the holiday. I mean, it’s a little abstract, but that’s what makes it perfect for kids, right? I also love that they can get involved in creating these. My kids love to create in the kitchen, so I am always looking for something that they can be involved in that isn’t too crazy messy.
When I was walking through Walmart, I saw these angel food dessert cups and knew they would be perfect to create a nest!
Edible Easter Nest Shopping List:
- Angel Food Dessert Cups
- Cadburry Mini Eggs (or really any chocolate egg)
- Edible Grass – I picked these up in the Easter section at Walmart as well
- Whipped Cream
- Chocolate Bunnies
To create these, check out the video below:
To make the nest:
1- Start out with the angel food cake dessert cups and fill in with whipped cream
2- Wrap the edible grass around the dessert cup. This will turn out more abstract than perfect. I just went with it. Just take each strand of grass individually and add them one at a time. Hey, real bird’s nests are crazy, so we are just mimicking nature here.
3- Add your chocolate bunny and eggs!
So it is obviously crazy simple and easy enough for kids, though they may need a little help with the actual nest.
As always, feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions!
