Recipe of the Month: 3 Quick Easter Candies

Happy Easter everyone! 

This "recipe of the month" is all about your bunny-induced spring sugar fix!

Learn to make 3 EASY, QUICK Easter candies.  You don't need the stove, don't need the oven and don't even need to measure the ingredients!

If you wish to make all 3 of these you will need: 

2-3 bags of chocolate pieces (dark, white, or colored)
chow mein noodles
jelly beans
candy/cookie sprinkles
 Special Equipment:  silicone candy mold - Easter shapes (You can find these online, at craft stores, and many grocery stores.)


Place the chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave at 30 second increments until the chocolate melts and is smooth.

Be sure to stir the chocolate between each heating in the microwave.

Add the chow mein noodles to the chocolate and stir to coat.

The noodle chocolate mixture should look like this.

Spoon the mixture into small clumps on a cookie sheet.

Decorate each nest with 3 jelly beans, then refrigerate until the candy hardens.


Melt the chocolate as with the bird nests above, but this time add peanuts.

Stir the peanuts in until they are coated with chocolate.

Spoon the mixture onto a cookie pan and decorate with jelly beans. Allow to harden in the refrigerator for 1 hour, then serve!


Fill an Easter-related-shape silicone candy mold with chocolate pieces.

Place the candy mold in the microwave and melt the chocolate at 30 second increments until smooth.

Stir the chocolate with a toothpick between each heating so that it is smooth. Tap the mold against the counter top so that the chocolate spreads evenly within the mold.

Cover the surface of the warm melted chocolate with decorative candy sprinkles.

Refrigerate the mold for 1 hour.  Once the chocolate is hard, carefully pop the candies out onto a baking sheet.

Display and serve your candies for a sweet, delicious Easter!
