You won’t find a whole lot of brownie ideas on the blog. There’s a good reason for it. I have maybe 2, no make that 3 sweet tooth weaknesses. Usually, I have no problem saying no to ice cream, cake, cookies, etc. Put a slice of pie,  a sliver of cheesecake or a brownie in front of me…I totally cave. These brownie nests are so cute, though. I couldn’t resist making them.

Here’s a quick little video to show you how I made these Brownie Bird Nests…

Brownie Bird Nests

  • Yield: 12 1x



You’ll Need

  • 1/3 cup of unsalted butter – melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1 box of milk chocolate brownie mix
  • Egg-shaped chocolate covered candy – I found egg M&Ms to use on these brownie nests *Cadbury also makes beautiful Mini Chocolate Eggs
  • Cupcake liners -( I like to use silicone liners and I even go an extra step to grease mine with cooking spray. )


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
  2. Mix the brownie mix with the melted butter, egg and milk
  3. Line your muffin tins with liners
  4. Scoop the batter into cupcake liners until they are each about 1/2 way full
  5. Bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean
  6. Allow the brownies to cool
  7. Remove the liners
  8. Press the center down with your thumbs and fill with egg-shaped candies


  • This time of year, egg-shaped candies are super easy to find and they come with just about any filling you can imagine. I used Milk chocolate M&Ms, but wouldn’t caramel filled eggs be divine on a brownie?! Yum!
  • *If all you have is a box of fudge brownies…You can substitute. Just use the recipe on the back of the box. It always works for me and still tastes really yummy!
