Salty Caramel and Dark Chocolate Bird's Nests

Recipe for Salty Caramel and Dark Chocolate Bird's Nests

This Easter I invited some of my mommy friends and their families over for an Easter dinner and all-out toddler insane-fest.  To really get the toddler blood pumping so they could do the best possible job of destroying my apartment, I made a decadent desert with pretzels, dark chocolate, caramel and Jordan almonds.  Once the sugar had mainlined in their little bodies we kept it going by doing an egg hunt with plastic eggs filled with Fruit Loops.  By the way, if your looking for the perfect snack that is colorful and sticky to have ground into your floors and carpets, Fruit Loops is it.  The adults enjoyed bloody mary's, and whiskey and we all enjoyed the amazing potluck dishes that my friends brought over.  Blue cheese biscuits, asparagus ragu, mac and cheese and a delicious ham were all on the menu followed by an Eastery treat of Bird's Nests.  A super fun day for my husband and I and especially memorable Easter for Ruby.

Hippity- hoppity... Easter is on it's way!!!  Ok.  So I never really thought I would be the kind of mom that makes an Easter basket, especially for a 16 month old, but I'll admit it, I got wrapped up in the Easter spirit this year.  I mean, how could you not?  Candy, bunnies, pastels, eggs, chocolate, weird fake grass paper stuff.  Did I mention candy and chocolate?  So I found myself trying to figure out what to fill her basket with when I came upon an easy (super easy) craft tutorial to share with y'all.  Here is a super duper easy stuffed Easter bunny tutorial.  Hoppy Easter!
