Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter, everyone!  It's been a couple weeks since I've posted a blog, which is a little bittersweet because on one hand, I'm sad that I haven't been able to keep up as much lately but I'm thrilled about on the other hand because it means business has been going really well.
Brooklyn turns two today, and we celebrated with a small birthday party/Easter egg hunt at Grandma and Papa's house yesterday afternoon.
I wanted to share these treats from the party because they were soooo tasty and fun!

These nests were so easy and tasty, and I loved the way they looked.  Simple and easy to assemble, they went like hotcakes.

Easy bird's nests

1 bag La Choy Chinese Noodles
1 bag butterscotch chips
1 bag chocolate chips
1 bag Cadbury mini chocolate eggs with candy coating

Pour the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips into a medium to large glass bowl.  Microwave on high at thirty second intervals, stirring with a rubber spatula in between, until smooth and creamy.  This shouldn't take more than 1 1/2 - 2 minutes. Use the spatula to mix in the Chinese noodles until evenly coated.  Transfer by heaping tablespoons onto a parchment lined baking sheet, using your thumbs to press into the center the pinching up the sides to form a nest.  While the nests are still melted, lay three Cadbury mini eggs into the center of each nest. Pop the baking sheet in the freezer for about ten minutes then transfer to a serving platter.  These will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for about a week. If you have trouble with your eggs staying put, you can use a small dab of melted chocolate or Nutella to hold them in place.

The party was a fun time had by all, with an egg hunt, cookie decorating, and sherbet punch.  It doesn't get much better than this.
And this sweet baby is two years old!!! I can't even believe it! Thanks, Papa Tony, for taking such beautiful pictures for us!
