Easter Nests

Leave a comment Standard

 Crafty CooScan 5k loves these really simple Easter Nests.    They’re so  much fun to make!








We used 18 Shredded Wheat (full size), 750g chocolate and decorated with 3 Cadbury’s Mini Eggs per nest. This made 26 nests -yum!

Melt the chocolate either in a bowl over a pan of water or in the microwave.

Meanwhile place the Shredded Wheat in a large bowl (the bigger the better) and crush with a rolling pin. This is the part the children love most but they can get carried away with the result that nothing stays in the bowl!

Add the melted chocolate to the crushed Shredded Wheat and mix together until it is all coated with chocolate. Spoon into pretty cake cases, top with the Mini Eggs and then leave to set. That’s it
