Vegan Chocolate Bird’s Nests

Posted by in Chocolate, Cooking, Easter, Sweets | 0 comments













Hello & Happy Saturday!!






If you know me, you know that I love holidays as it opens the door for more creativity and you can just have more fun with concepts. When thinking of effortless Easter recipes, I recall seeing these “bird’s nest” throughout childhood. I can’t say that I ever enjoyed one, but the process is so seamless I had to share. If you love haystacks (this is basically a haystack) or don’t even know what a haystack is, you’ll love this recipe!


There are other varieties that include butter and marshmallows, but you can actually skip all that and just focus on a chocolate option!







What’s fab about this recipe, is everything! It’s quick, easy, fun to make, kid friendly, can be easily be made in bulk, has minimal ingredients, can be made sans jelly beans for an effortless year round treat, and is non vegan approved!




If you love effortless Easter recipes, you have to try my recipe for classic vegan Chocolate Bird’s Nests!
