Easter Chocolate Nests
*1 cup Ghirardelli Dark Melting Wafers (more if you want extra thick layers on chocolate nest), melted in a double boiler
*1 cup coconut, sweetened or unsweetened
*1 tablespoon Special Dark Hershey’s Cocoa Powder
*1 Bag 9.9 ounce Easter Peanut Butter M&M’s or Cadbury Eggs, etc…
*Pastry Bag with round small tip, for piping melted chocolate
*Round Silicon Baking Cups
Melt wafers on low heat in double boiler then scoop warm chocolate into pastry bag with tip and pipe lines onto wax paper covered silicone cups, drizzling/piping the melted chocolate back and forth across until desired nest shape and thickness. (You can drizzle in one layer and allow that layer to set and then add another layer to get more of a stick nest look, always allow the chocolate to set between layers.) Also you can place in the chocolate nest in the fridge to speed setting.
When finished nests have set, carefully remove nests from the silicone wax paper covered molds and then fill with cocoa coconut.
Place the coconut and cocoa powder in a re-sealable plastic bag and shake until all the coconut is coated. Now, sprinkle cocoa coconut in the bottom of your chocolate nests and add candy peanut butter or chocolate eggs.
Serve at dinner parties as a favor to take home or for a fun children’s treat.
