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.
Servings 6 servings
- 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!
