With Easter approaching, plenty of Mini Eggs in the shops and a box of Cornflakes in the cupboard what else was I to do other than make the classic Easter Chocolate Egg Nests?! Plus is there anything better than melting chocolate...it looks sooo good! And I had these super cute pastel coloured cupcake cases left over from another bake, perfect for an Easter treat...Now I'm sure you guys all know how to make these but just incase here is a quick how-to...
- Melt a bar of good Chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, make sure the bowl doesn't touch the water.
- Once the Chocolate has melted turn off the heat and gradually add in your Cornflakes* a little at a time until all the chocolate is coating the flakes and not the bowl.
- Spoon into cases and press in the Chocolate Eggs whilst warm. Leave to cool or pop in the fridge for 30mins or so...too long and they will be too hard to bite into!
- Store in a tin in a cool place but not the fridge...Enjoy!
*You can also use large Shredded Wheat crumbled up for a real 'nest' like look.
...Hope you give them a go they really are the best thing about Easter in my book! Have a good day!x
