With Easter only a few days away, I’ve been doing lot’s of Spring making and baking with the girls. One of my favourite Easter makes are these cute little egg nests, and they are super easy too. I love that there’s no actual baking involved and they look so cute and taste really yummy.
You will need –
Mini eggs. We actually used slightly smaller eggs than the usual mini eggs which we picked up in Tesco.
Cooking Chocolate. We used two bars to make 10 nests.
Shredded Wheat. This needs to be crumbled.
Easter Chicks. These can be picked up in most craft shops and supermarkets at Easter time.
How to Make:
Crumble up your shredded wheat, then melt your chocolate. This can be done in the microwave, do it in short bursts and stir until it is completely melted. Or melt in a Pirex jug or bowl over hot water.
Then mix the melted chocolate with the shredded wheat until it is all covered.
You can then start spooning the mixture into silicone cake cases.
Make a small hollow in the centre of the mix so it looks like a little nest.
You can then add a few eggs to the middle of the nest.
Place your nests into the fridge for an hour or so, until completely set.
Once the nests have set, remove them from the silicone cake case and add a little chick.
This is such an easy make and is perfect for doing with toddlers and small children.

One of my all time favorite cakes to make and I still make them now (aged 33) for the office at Easter!

They are so good, they shouldn’t just be limited to Easter!

How wonderfully yummy looking! I hope that you and your family all had an Easter that was every bit as sweet and pretty as these lovely chocolate nests.
