Learn how to make chocolate nest for Easter. Fill them with candy eggs and chocolate birds for kids. Requires simple ingredients and just 20 minutes.

I have seen many different versions of this easy Easter chocolate nest recipe.

There are chocolate bird nests with chow mein noodles and chocolate bird nest with shredded wheat and even chocolate nests with pretzels.

All of these chocolate bird nest recipes are cute and crunchy with lots of chocolate.

However, my favorite version is this coconut chocolate nest.

These ones have a chewy texture and the combination of chocolate and coconut flavors is always heavenly.

I also like to add some almonds for a subtle crunch.

You can add whatever nuts you like or omit them altogether.

To be honest, I think every household makes these bird nests during Easter time but everyone puts their own SPIN on them. So, get into the kitchen with your kids and have fun making some wonderful memories!

So, I suggest NOT removing the wrappers…lol.

What do you guys think? Cute OR scary?!
