Easter Chocolate Nests

These Easter Chocolate Nest are an adorable treat to make with your kids. They are super cute, fun to make and very delicious. I used vermicelli rice with melted chocolate and molded around a muffin tin to make the nests - such a creative DIY craft idea for children with a fun treat to eat in the end.

  • 1 Tbsp grapeseed oil
  • 4 oz dried rice vermicelli noodles
  • 2 oz semi sweet chocolate
  • Chocolate Easter eggs


  • Heat the rapeseed oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Break the vermicelli rice noodles into smaller strands that will be easier to work with and then place in the skillet for about 2-4 minutes until they become shiny.
  • Some will turn light golden brown and that is fine. Remove from the oil and place on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second increments for up to 1 minute and half, stirring in between, until completely smooth and melted.
  • Place the cooked vermicelli into the bowl of chocolate and use your hands to gently toss the vermicelli with the chocolate until they are completely coated in chocolate.
  • Line the opposite side of a muffin tin with silicone cups or plastic wrap and gently press the vermicelli mixture around the cup to create a nest-like shape
  • Refrigerate until the mixture is set and firm, about 30 minutes.
  • Place your favorite chocolate eggs inside and enjoy!
