Chocolate / Carob Coconut Nests (special diet options)

Chocolate / Carob Coconut Birds' Nests

Easter is coming and that means that so is — chocolate!!  And a lot of it.  Well, there is also a deeper meaning to Easter, but we can cover that in another post.

I remember searching throughout the house for my Easter basket filled with more chocolate than I should have been eating.  And I especially was looking forward to the hollowed out egg with my name written on it.  Yes, my mom’s love language was giving gifts, and one of her favorite gifts to give was food.  Not a good combination, if you know what I mean.

So here I am, off of sugar (blamed partially on too many Easter goodies in the past), but I would still like to enjoy sweets now and then.  And so would my kids.  And you too, I imagine!

Here is a way to enjoy chocolate and coconut and have some fun in the kitchen this Easter.

I used to make something like this in my heavy sugar days, but they were made with peanut butter, chinese noodles and marshmallow and were filled with little Cadbury chocolate eggs.

I promise that this version will be much easier on your blood sugar levels :-).

This is a remake of a recipe from Affairs of Living, a site that is dedicated to special diets.  I had to tweak it a bit to make the nests hold together, but the resulting product was a success!
