Chocolate Easter Nests

Easter is almost here so it's time to start with some Easter baking. First up are my quick and easy Chocolate Easter Nests. Perfect for making with the kids but guaranteed to be enjoyed by everyone!

50g butter
225g/ 8oz milk or dark chocolate (whatever is your family favourite)
3 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp milk
125g cornflakes

54 mini eggs
18 cupcake cases (I used medium sized ones)


In a large pan melt the butter and chocolate with the syrup. Add the milk and stir well until smooth and glossy. Add the cornflakes to the melted chocolate mixture and mix well so they are all evenly covered. Put the cupcakes cases into two muffin tins then spoon into the cupcake cases until you have used all of the cornflake mix up. Top with 3 mini eggs onto the middle of each 'nest' then chill until ready to eat and enjoy!

  3. Are those cadbury mini eggs I see in those nests? Those are totally my vice, I could eat the whole bag! I would have egg-less nests :)

  7. Thank you all so much! I love that they are so quick and easy to make but taste SOOOOO good!

    They are Cadbury's mini eggs...I had to buy the largest bag just to make sure I had enough for this recipe and hopefully a few other things...but we'll just need to see - it's rapidly disappearing!

  13. I loved these as a kid, I should definitely make these again but it might have to wait till next Easter now, so much to bakes, so little time.

    Your nests are just prefect. x

  14. These are adorable. And I absolutely love the combination of chocolate and cornflakes! (Ritter's Sport makes a chocolate bar with cornflakes inside - it is addictive!)
