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.
