{Cooking With Kids} Easter Egg Nutella Nests

easter nest nutella

Easter is coming up so my niece and I decided to make these cute Nutella egg nests. Being an aunt is such a blessing. I am reminded of that each weekend when we hang out together. The boys have long outgrown cooking, but still welcome being taste testers and critics! A few weeks ago they played “Chopped” judging what I had made that evening. Thankfully, I survived!

My niece seems to have fallen in love with cooking like I did. She is always game to create something new. We made these Easter egg nests in the evening and I had left my camera at home. My sister-in-law was kind enough to snap a photo for me the next day.  We made the egg nests while watching our latest obssession, Shark Tank.  Nothing like a few business lessons while making egg nests.

Food is a great way to build relationships.  When we cook together there is that opportunity to talk while stirring and mixing. Around the table we get to savor our time with those we love, catching up on the week and sharing our hearts. Next weekend we are barbecuing for Easter.  I look forward to gathering around the table with my family.

These Nutella Egg Nests were so simple to make. Start by melting white chocolate until smooth. Pour the chow mein noodles into the white chocolate and make sure they are all coated.  Place spoonfuls of the mixture on wax paper and form nests with a groove in the middle. Once the chocolate sets you put a teaspoon of Nutella in and top with Malted Milk Eggs.  How easy is that?

Who is a blessing in your life? Who are you inviting to join you at the table?
