An Easter Treat!

Chocolate Easter Nests

Happy Easter!…Just in case you need an excuse to eat more chocolate over the holidays, I’ve recreated one of my family’s all-time favourites, Chocolate Crispy Cakes, into a special treat for Easter! How can anyone resist, and they literally take 15 minutes to make – although admittedly you will have to wait for them to set in the fridge before eating…

50g unsalted butter

4 tablespoons golden syrup

100g dark chocolate (I use Lindt Excellence 70% Cocoa Dark Chocolate)

75g cornflakes

About 20-30 Mini Eggs

  1. Gently melt the butter, syrup and chocolate in a bowl suspended over a pan of barely simmering water (a bain marie).
  2. In another bowl, gently crush the cornflakes into smaller pieces – this makes them easier to mold into a nest shape.
  3. Add the cornflakes to the chocolate mixture, stirring gently so that they are evenly coated.
  4. Spoon the mixture into muffin cases, using the back of the spoon to create a nest shape. Place three or four Mini Eggs into the ‘nest’, and place in the fridge until set.
