Cooking with Children :: Easter Nests Recipe

easter egg nests recipe

Easter egg nests such as these cornflake easter nests are such a simple easter recipe that I just couldn't resist making them with Lara. I found this recipe on the BBC website and I liked it because it was something more than just chocolate! I would say that the butter and syrup mix definitely added flavour and richness but that it pooled in the bottom of the cake cases which was a bit offputting!

225g plain chocolate
50g butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
75g cornflakes
mini eggs to decorate

    chocolate for easter nests
  • Break the chocolate into a heat-proof bowl and chop up the butter into cubes. Add the butter and the golden syrup to the bowl.
  • melting chocolate for easter nests
  • Put the bowl over a pan of simmering water and stir constantly until it is melted and smooth. Don't let the water boil or else the chocolate will separate.
  • Once melted, add in the cornflakes and stir to coat them all.
  • Spoon the cornflake mixture into cake cases and decorate with 3 or 4 mini chocolate eggs.
  • decorating chocolate easter nests
  • Put the nests into the fridge to chill and harden for an hour before eating.
