Chocolate Easter Egg Nests to make with Kids!

IMG_4738

All you need for this simple cooking craft is in the picture above. Shredded wheat cereal (not the bite sized shreddies) , milk chocolate, mini chocolate eggs and cake cases. If you can get greaseproof cake cases do.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave – 15 seconds at a time stirring in between melts. An adult needs to supervise this because the bowl will become hot.

Crumble in the shredded wheat one at a time. Stir until coated with chocolate each time. Only add more if you need to.

Spoon some of the mixture into the cake cases and make a slight hollow with a spoon,

Place the mini eggs in the hollow before the chocolate ‘nest’ sets.

Note: Shredded wheat is not a sweet cereal so you may want to substitute with Rice Krispies. Shredded wheat will look more like a nest!

Warning: The mini eggs are very moorish. If you eat one you’ll want to eat them all!
