Chocolate Nests for 'Down in the Garden' party theme

Today I want to share a quick, and easy to make, table decoration for your "Meg" down in the Garden party. Since it's on sale and all!
Inspired by this party from Kate Landers Events, I thought I would Australian-ise her nest recipe. I made some nests for my boutique markets display last month, and they were so easy.  
You probably remember making these in Preschool or early Home Ec classes - I certainly don't claim to be the creator of this idea!
The only two ingredients are these. I just used cheap chocolate as I wasn't needing it to taste amazing. I used one packet of chocolate to one and a half packets of these fried noodles.
Melt choc and mix
Pour into glad wrap lined nest-sized bowls. Press up the sides till you get the depth and thickness you want (mine were way too chunky - could have knocked someone out with it!)
Set in the fridge, peel off plastic and fill with treats!
And those fried noodles really look twig-like!
A sweet addition to any down in the garden theme or fairy theme don't you think?
Don't forget to check out the Polkadot Prints Sale on till the 30th June!


  1. fantastic! I have seen them done with shredded wheat, but those really look like twigs!
