Easter chick tarts

EASTER TREATS FOR EVERYONE   I know you think these Easter chick tarts are adorable and they are, even better to eat after a lovely Easter dinner or for a treat.

So thinking ahead (as one of the kids has an egg allergy) I thought if I made some Easter nests or as I call them Easter chick tarts.
