Hummingbird Nests

Hummingbird Nests

Hummingbirds like Pocahontas' friend Flit have wings that beat an average of 50-plus times per second when they fly. And some hummingbirds are so small that, if you're lucky enough to catch sight of one, you might actually think it's a bee. Invite your child to size up this edible hummingbird nest, and she'll find a pair of tiny candy eggs that are just about the same dimensions as the real thing!


    1/2 cup white chocolate chips
    Microwavable bowl
    Wooden spoon
    1 tablespoon hot water
    1/3 cup dry chow mein noodles
    Rubber spatula
    Waxed paper
    Pretzel sticks
    Tic Tac candies


  1. Microwave the white chocolate chips for ten second intervals until they soften enough to stir into a frosting. Add the tablespoon of hot water and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Immediately add the chow mein noodles to the bowl and use a rubber spatula to gently fold them into the melted white chocolate.
  3. Scrape the mixture from the bowl onto a sheet of waxed paper and separate the mound into five equal-size piles.
  4. Working with clean hands, loosely shape each pile into a nest by using your thumbs to create a shallow depression in the center.
  5. Before the white chocolate sets up, place each nest atop a pair of pretzel sticks arranged to resemble a small forked branch.
  6. Finally, fill each nest with two Tic Tac eggs.
