Rosy Mama Recipes

Now everyone makes these slightly differently but my Easy Easter Chocolate Nests are made with shredded wheat; other options are of course cornflakes or rice crispies, but for the authentic ‘nest’ like appearance I think shredded wheat is best. I also like to top them with the traditional Easter pastel shades of mini eggs; they tend to taste fabulous too (any other mini egg addicts out there? Just me?) This is also a great recipe to get your kids involved with as, honestly, is so easy! 

Easy Easter Chocolate Nest Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 75g Shredded Wheat
  • 250g Chocolate
  • 50g Butter (Please use real butter as I did initially try with margarine and my goodness it did not work!)
  • 2tbs Golden Syrup
  • 1 pack of Mini Eggs (Or any small eggs to be honest!)

Method:

Firstly line a 12 muffin tin with cake cases and set to one side… then grab a large bowl and break up the shredded wheat and put to one side too.

I can’t reiterate enough how time sensitive the next part is (yes… It did go entirely wrong the first two times and I had to adjust my method… who knew melting chocolate would be so difficult!)

Pop the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a microwavable bowl and pop in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time… keep stirring and repeating this process until you have a smooth mixture.

Keep a little of this mixture aside for fixing the eggs into the nests later.

I find the easiest way of combining with the shredded wheat is to mix it with your hands.

Pop equal sized lumps into the pre prepared cake cases and make a small well, or nest, into the centre.

That mixture you saved… now would be a good time to grab it and spot a little into the middle of the nests.

Now just add the eggs! I popped three in each one… two just is not enough in my eyes!

The last step is to refrigerate these beauties for about an hour to set the chocolate.

Voila!
