Chocolate Pineapple Easter Nests are very simple to make!
Easter will be here this Sunday and I prepared easy pineapple chocolate nests. If you like pineapple covered with chocolate, this is dessert for You! Smothered pineapple with chocolate and sprinkled with coconut. I also added some Easter candy eggs. Definitely great treat for Easter. My children loved these little chocolate pineapple nests.
I like Easter, it is about Family and Friends and spending time with them. On Friday I will prepare 3 baskets for blessing, one for my older son Jason, one for younger son Alex and one for the Family. I usually put some sweets , bread, eggs and sausage in my children’s baskets. In family basket we have bread, sausage, salt, horseradish, and eggs. Every food has its own meaning. That’s our tradition from Europe and I would like to keep it that way. Even if I don’t live in Europe currently.
Ok, I just moved to Canada in December (2013) and someone told me; they do not Bless Baskets in Canada:( So I am a little upset, but I have to find out if it is true. Maybe.. my Polish Church will Bless Baskets. There is very small polish community where I live but maybe our polish traditions are followed here. In USA, where I lived (in Chicago) there is huge polish community. We did not have a problem to Bless our Baskets there. Every country has own Easter traditions.
