Cooking today ― Day 27 of NaPoWriMo 2015

Chocolate Bird's Nest

Ingredients are:

Molten chocolate, half to a whole package

Six or so candy chocolate candy coated bird eggs
Ample amount of corn flakes cereal, one to two cups depending on how much chocolate you have melted
Lots of love, make it for a friend

You will need a nine inch square or round cake pan or plastic container

Directions follow:

Melt molten chocolate in double boiler

or in microwave. Be careful not to over cook.

Pour into pan

Stir in corn flakes until flakes to chocolate

ratio is about even.  In other words about
the same amounts of chocolate as corn flakes

Before mixture cools and hardens

place your six eggs where you want them
Like maybe a hen had laid them there 

You may study birds nests
to make this realistic. I find placing
them equidistant around over the nest
but random looking looks best.

Artistic touch will rule here

The more love you put into this
the sweeter your little nest will be

I am linked with at the Real Toads, It is not just about food

and with  NaPoWriMo 2015both for Day 27 of National Poem Writing Month

Bjorn's instructions are "write a poem in the form of a recipe. It can either be something we can actually using for our favorite dinners, but why not a recipe for something more abstract such as love, spring or death." 

Mine is real food, but made with lots of love by lots of kids.

Oh good, I was hoping someone would do a real recipe for real food! Sounds delicious — and you haven't left out that most important non-food ingredient: love.

Ouch.. I have to go out running a 10 K or so before even smelling at this richness.
