Chocolate Easter nests

Difficulty: Really easy

Time: 15 minutes + 1 hours chilling

Serves: 10

Easter nests are by far the easiest and quickest thing I’ve ever made with my kids. They’re a no bake treat which makes them a great place to start for anyone looking for something quick and easy to make with kids this Easter. I remember having them when I was little and not a lot has changed since then – I mean, who can resist the bright, colourful eggs sitting among all the chocolate!

We normally use corn flakes to make the nest but if you’ve got shredded wheat or shreddies or any other cereal lying around the house, they’ll work just as well.

 

Ingredients
200g milk chocolate
2 tbsp golden syrup
50g butter
175g corn flakes
Mini eggs

 



 

Method

Add some cupcake cases to a muffin tray


Melt the chocolate, syrup and butter together
Get your kids to break the chocolate (200g) into pieces and put into a heatproof bowl. Add the golden syrup (2 tbsp) – if you have 2 little chefs, one might be able to hold the spoon while the other pours. Measure the butter and chop into a few pieces before adding to your bowl.

 

Melt on a double boiler (place your bowl over a pan of simmering water). Leave it to melt, stirring occasionally.

 

Mix in the cornflakes
While the chocolate is melting, get your kids to weigh the cornflakes out. Don’t worry about being too accurate.

Add the cornflakes to your melted chocolate. (Make sure the bowl isn’t too hot first).

Give everything a good mix so all the cornflakes are coated.

  

Make the nests
Give your little chefs spoons and get them to fill the cupcake cases with the chocolate cornflakes. Press down a little dent in the top for the mini eggs.

Add 3 mini eggs to the top of each nest.

 

Chill in the fridge for a few hours.
