The best bit about Easter is that it’s socially acceptable to eat chocolate all day long for an entire extra long weekend. Chocolate for breakfast? Sure! Chocolate for dinner? Why not?
As a child I always used to love making chocolate Krispie cakes with my grandma using either Rice Krispies or cornflakes and these little nests are the perfect Easter treats. Here I’m using shredded wheat which gives a great texture for the nests and you can use any chocolate you’ve got in the cupboard. You can even use leftover Easter eggs if you have any left!
The actual recipe is really easy, anyone can manage it and it’s great for children under supervision of course – they can help with all the stirring and most importantly licking the spoons. For the finishing touch, I drop in a few mini eggs into each nest but you can use any easter treats you’ve got to hand.
