6 FAQs About Cadbury Coconut Chocolate Nests

1. How To Store Chocolate Nests?

You may store chocolate coconut nests in an air-tight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator. I prefer the refrigerator because I enjoy eating chocolate coconut nests when they are chilled.

2. How Long Will Chocolate Coconut Nests Last?

If stored as above, chocolate coconut nests easily stay fresh for three weeks.

3. When To Serve Chocolate Coconut Nests?

My favorite time to serve these nests is on my Easter desserts board. However, if they are also a great addition to Easter baskets or your Easter desserts table.

4. How Do I Ensure That I Don’t Burn The Chocolate Melts?

Overheating chocolate melts is a very common mistake that used to happen to me all of the time. The easiest way to avoid your chocolate from burning:

  1. Use the 50% power setting on your microwave.
  2. Heat the chocolate in 30-second intervals.
  3. Stir very thoroughly between heating.

In other words, be patient and take your time. Once you’ve overheated your chocolate – which will be obvious by the large, solid, clump that forms – it can’t be brought back to a liquid consistency.

5. What Should I Do With Leftover Chocolate?

Chocolate bark is a perfect way to use your leftover chocolate because it doesn’t require exact measurements or ingredients. I love this Chocolate Easter Bark from Tip Buzz.
