Chocolate Nests

Easy Chocolate Nests to cook with kids

We love easy cooking and these Chocolate Nests are so simple to make with kids and I know that J and T loved making them. With only 2 ingredients they are simple and toddlers can join in with the fun. They are perfect for Spring and/or Easter as the birds appear and start to collect their twigs to make nests or to remind us of the new life of Easter.

Ingredients for Chocolate Easter Nests

100g Milk Chocolate for cooking
2 shredded wheats
small chocolate eggs

How to make the Chocolate Easter Nests

Put the shredded wheat into a ziplock bag and crush it – putting in a ziplock bag will stop it going everywhere.

Place your chocolate broken up into a microwavable bowl and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds, take out stir and then put back in for an extra 30 seconds – repeat until all your chocolate has melted (will vary depending on the microwave). If you don’t have a microwave you can put the chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a small pan and stir the chocolate over the heat until it melts.

Pour the crushed shredded wheat in with the chocolate and mix together.

Put a small nest of the chocolate shredded wheats into a cupcake cake and then add a few chocolate eggs on the top and allow to cool.
