Chocolate Easter Nests

As I have mentioned in previous posts, we have made two batches of chocolate Easter nests.  As the second batch was much more successful, mainly because it was done in less of a hurry and with appropriate quantities of ingredients, I thought I would blog it properly here.  It is already Easter Sunday, so I don’t suppose there are a lot of people frantically searching for a blog post on how to make them, but you never know… Also, if I put it here I will be able to refer to it next year and get it right first time.  Possibly.

You will need:

  • 150g milk chocolate
  • 150g plain chocolate
  • 30g butter
  • 120g shredded wheat
  • mini chocolate eggs
  • small paper cases

This recipe is enough for about 22 small nests.

Break the chocolate into squares, and put them in a bowl.  Add the butter, and place the bowl over a pan of water that has just come to the boil.  Stir until everything has melted.  Break up the shredded wheat into strands and add to the chocolate mixture.  Stir until the shredded wheat is completely coated with chocolate.  Place a teaspoonful of the mixture into each paper case and press it down slightly in the middle.  Add a mini chocolate egg, and put the nests in the fridge for at least half an hour.

    Ooh yum, they would get eaten VERY quickly in our house! I do these with rice crispies and raisins, but without the butter. Thanks for linking up to my Easter Linky. xx
