These Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bird’s Nest Cookies are irresistibly delicious and such a simple no-bake Easter treat!
You may be thinking “not ANOTHER indulgent treat this week?!” Sorry folks, I’ve had the Dirt Delight and these Bird’s Nest Cookies sitting since last year because I ran out of time to post them and I didn’t want to wait an entire year again to show you these desserts. Don’t forget, everything in moderation! If you’re still looking for nutritious side dishes for Easter check out some of my favorites I’ve listed in my Dirt Delight post.
Of course coming up with this recipe was a no-brainer since I love chocolate and peanut butter and I wanted to make a spring dessert that’s similar to my all-time favorite Christmas dessert, these Chinese New Year Cookies. But this time PEANUT BUTTER is added to the chocolate…yum!!
If you’re short on time but looking to make a quick Easter dessert, these are the perfect option. They take an entire 15 minutes to prep and only about 1 hour in the fridge.
I know I talk about moderation quite a bit, but it truly is the way I eat. I used to restrict certain foods (pizza being one) but would crave it so much that when I did cave in, I would overeat it (which is quite normal). Now I don’t deny myself any specific food but rather I remind myself that a little bit of anything is just fine, as long as I’m regularly consuming nutritious foods and getting plenty of physical activity. This is MUCH more enjoyable than having several “off limit” foods and it allows me to show my kids how to eating a normal, balanced diet without restrictions. Much more on this topic to come soon!
