Who doesn’t like eating chocolate nests?  BB has been asking to make some since November! We have this Usborne children’s recipe book full of delicious cakes and biscuits.  Every now and then he finds it and go through it pointing out all the things he would like to make.  One of them happened to be chocolate nests.  He was addiment that we were going to make them before Christmas.  It took some persuading, but I managed to convince him that gingerbread was better for Christmas and chocolate nests were more suited to Easter.  Well finally his wish has come true!

Make sure you follow my Easter board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own chocolate nests you will need:

  • Corn flakes
  • Chocolate
  • Chocolate eggs*
  • Muffin tin
  • Cake cases
  • Saucepan
  • Heat proof bowl

*We actually used marzipan to make some mini eggs as they didn’t have any dairy free eggs. We then used edible glitter spray to decorate them.  We did that mainly because we had run out of food colouring to dye them.

Start by breaking your chocolate into a heat proof.  If you have a microwave, you can melt it using that.  If not, you can put the heat proof bowl over a boil pan of water.  Just make sure that the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl.

When the chocolate has melted then mix in your corn flakes.

Spoon them into you cake cases and put them either in the fridge or a cool pace to dry.

Finally add your eggs.

I did make BB help clear up afterwards, he wasn’t happy, but it is an important part of cooking.

Happy eating.
