The Easter table at 1840 Farm will have a touch of whimsy this year: at least for a few moments. I know that my son’s white chocolate nest place card with candy coated eggs won’t stand a chance. The eggs will be history in a matter of seconds. Then the nest will fall prey to a six-year-old who loves both white chocolate and coconut.
I can almost picture his plate with only the small flag remaining where the nest used to be. I won’t mind a bit. I’ll be happy to have made something that brings beauty and deliciousness to our table in the same bite.
I shared the instructions for making these chocolate nests on CommunityChickens.com for the publishers of Mother Earth News and Grit Magazine. For a family that holds its flock of heritage breed hens in high regard, they seemed like the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of spring to our farm. To learn how you can make these adorable and delicious place cards for your Easter table, read “Welcome to the Easter table at 1840 Farm.”
In a matter of weeks, the newest batch of day old baby chicks will make 1840 Farm their home. For the first time ever, we’ll be adding a few fancy bantam hens to the mix. After they arrive, there will be an unending supply of adorable baby chick photos and videos to share along with product giveaways and money-saving offers. To make sure that you don’t miss out on any of the fun, follow 1840 Farm on Facebook to get the daily news from the coop.
