Using chow mein noodles, chocolate and some jelly beans, you can make really cute and yummy place settings or centerpiece for your Easter or springtime table. The crunch with the chocolate make them delicious too!


  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup chow mein noodles
  • 6 jelly beans


  1. Place milk chocolate chips in either a double boiler or a metal pan placed inside a pan of water on the stove. Start heating slowly.
  2. Add olive oil to chips and stir.
  3. When melted and liquidy, add chow mein noodles slowly. You don't need to add them all at once.
  4. After they are covered in chocolate, use a fork to remove them and place one to one and one half full tablespoons onto waxed or parchment paper as the 'tree' base of the creation.
  5. Ad
  6. With your fork, take a few noodles out and place on another part of the parchment. You can create the nest with four smaller forkfulls of noodles in the shape of a box. The center doesn't even need any noodles since you will be placing the nest on top of the trunk when they dry.
  7. I placed my noodles into the freezer while I did other things to cool and harden. Within a half hour (probably less), they should be hardened into place.
  8. Ad
  9. I carefully peeled the nest off the paper by placing my one hand on the bottom of them, underneath the paper and carefully peeled them off.
  10. Because I had left a space in the center of the nests, they fit on without any additional chocolate to hold it in place but you may use some softened chocolate to glue it in place if you need to.
  11. Then I just placed some jelly beans in the nest!
  12. I guess if you wanted, you could align the noodles to try to be straighter (up and down) for the trunk but I liked the gnarled look of a tree.
  13. Ad

I had a hard time trying to get a photo that showed the trunk with the nest on top but it really looks cute in 'person'.

These cute dino egg bites are a fun variation on a recipe that I previously posted. I used Easter Peanut Butter M&Ms instead of regular M&Ms. Here are the instructions:

They are easy enough for kids to make and would make a great treat for a child's birthday party.

  • 30 marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tsp. green food coloring
  • 3 1/2 cups corn flakes


For the nests: 3 1/2 cups use chow mein noodles for corn flakes.

Combine marshmallows, butter, and vanilla plus food coloring in top of double boiler. Heat over hot water until marshmallows are melted. Stir in corn flakes gradually. Drop from tablespoon onto waxed paper and with hands, shape into a 9 inch wreath. Decorate with candied cherries or red hots.

For Easter Nests: Form them into little nests and put jelly beans in them for eggs.

I made these with the children when they were little.

My son's class is having a bunny brunch. The teacher has asked that healthy snacks be sent ie., fruits, veggies, or pretzels. Any suggestions for anything else? I imagine that everyone will send those things and then they'll have 20 of the same thing. This is for 4 to 5 year olds.

What about making a different healthy dip to go with the veggies, pretzels, etc.: hummus (gabanzo/chickpea spread) is a favorite with lots of kids I know and it adds some protein to the snack. If you feel adventurous, eggplant dip, or squash dips can be tasty and nutritious, too.

Or what about a drink. V8 or V8 Splash or other veggie & fruit mixed juices would be something different. (Our family especially likes the ones mixed with blueberries. Walmart has a store-brand version that is really good.)

As always with kids that age, don't tell them what's in it!

Try making popcorn, mixed with smarties, nuts etc. Maybe some dried fruit.
