How about a clever recipe for Chocolate Birds Nests that the kids will love to make and to eat?
I've seen - and eaten :) - this candy before, but it was called haystacks. You can call them haystacks, too, if you are using a country or farm theme for a kid's birthday party, or just for a rainy day of play in the house.
Just leave out the jelly beans and place the mixture in a heap instead. =)
I hope you enjoy making chocolate candy recipes for kids with your own children. It's really a wonderful opportunity to build memories with them that they will remember for life.
It really doesn't even matter how good the candies turn out - although these birds nest candy are so simple you can hardly go wrong.
This recipe is extra tasty if you use Jelly Belly jelly beans candy to put in the nest as the eggs. They are full of flavor and they are smaller than the average jelly bean.
If you want to use this recipe to make your own party favor for your next children's party, why not pick up some cello favor bags at Candyland Crafts, along with twist-ties or ribbon for finishing them off.
This chocolate birds nest recipe is simple and easy to make. Give it a try!
