Easter Egg Nests

Firstly apologies for the lack of blog posts of late.. I’ve had a rather stressful and tiring few weeks but I’m trying to get back on track. I was actually convinced I’d posted this recipe as I uploaded pics to Instagram a few days ago and then promptly forgot. Pah.

Anyway this is an ideal, very simple recipe to make with our children this Easter. I used to make these using Shredded Wheat but it was very expensive in my local supermarket last week so I went with own brand cornflakes instead and they tasted just as good.

It was Izzys first attempt at cooking/baking and we had a lot of fun. I think she was a bit amazed at all the chocolate and stickiness ( we don’t let her eat much chocolate) and would sneakily lick the spoon at every opportunity.

Easter Egg Nests

You will need:

225g milk chocolate ( Cadburys dairy milk is best )
80g cornflakes
50g butter
2.5 tbsp golden syrup
24 mini eggs

Put 12 paper cases in a bun tray or like me use silicon cases instead.
Melt the chocolate, golden syrup & butter in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water ( careful not to overheat your mix or it will be grainy) Stir until smooth.
Remove the bowl from your pan and stir in the cornflakes until it is all coated in the chocolate.
Divide the mixture between the cases and press a few chocolate eggs into the centre of each nest. Chill in the fridge until completely set.

Totally delicious and a little addictive. Izzy only had around half of one so I’m unsure as to why the other 11 disappeared so quickly….Hmmmm,.

Enjoy, hope you are all having fun with our families.

  1. Love making these with the kiddies! We’ve used Rice Pops and also Shredded Wheat. Trying to find a non Nestlé equivalent of the latter is a pain though. It looks like Izzy enjoyed herself! Happy Easter x
