Brace yourselves because here are some delicious chocolate bird nests your kids can make at home! They are so easy to make and you only need 3 ingredients. Perfect to prepare for kids birthday parties, to enjoy over Easter or to simply have as a sweet treat, this is one recipe you should keep aside and remember for when your children want to make something.
Crunchy, chocolately and delicious. Sounds amazing, right? Quite seriously, I absolutely love making these chocolate bird nests because they are super simple and it’s something that you really can get the kids involved in making. They do have peanut butter, which means they are obviously not a nut free option, however, it is possible to leave out the peanut butter because the results are basically the same.
Recommended age: 3 years +

- 200 g cooking chocolate buds
- 1 pkt Changs Crunchy Noodles
- 4 tbsp crunchy peanut butter (optional)
- Mini smarties
- Carefully melt chocolate
- Stir in peanut butter until smooth and combined
- Add crunchy noodles
- Spoon into small mounds and mould to resemble a birds nest
- Add 3 x mini smarties to each
- Refrigerate for 1 hour
These chocolate bird nests are so gorgeous and delicious. Your child will see first hand how a solid can turn into a liquid as the chocolate melts in the bowl. They will also develop their basic cooking skills of stirring, folding and mixing the ingredients together.
This is one sweet treat that won’t stay on the plate for very long as it will be enjoyed by the whole family.

Hello how are you today. I would like to know were to get the ingredients from to make the birds nest. Thank you.
Hi Suzanne. Thank you so kindly for reaching out. You can get your chocolate buds from your local grocery store. The fried noodles might be a little harder, but I get mine from the International foods section of my grocery store. If you can tell me where you’re from I might be able to look into it a little further for you.
