These pretty little easter nests are great fun to make with the kids and decorated with mini chocolate eggs. Why not try replacing shredded wheat with rice krispies or corn flakes. Add a handful of mini marshmallow to the melted chocolate mix for added extra chewiness.

The Method Enter Bake mode

  1. Classic mode Step 1

    Lay a large sheet of cling film over a muffin tin. Ease the cling film into each muffin hole. Crumble the shredded wheat into a bowl to break it into small pieces.

    Ingredients for this step

    • 100g 3½ oz Shredded wheat
  2. Classic mode Step 2

    Break the chocolate into small pieces and put into a bowl standing over a pan of simmering water. Add the butter and syrup.

    Ingredients for this step

    • 200g 7⅛ oz Milk chocolate
    • 50g 1⅞ oz Butter (unsalted)
    • 2tbsp 2tbsp Golden syrup (we like Silver Spoon)
  3. Classic mode Step 3

    Heat gently, so all the ingredients melt and mix together. Make sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl or the chocolate will go grainy. When all the ingredients are melted remove the bowl from the heat and add the shredded wheat to the chocolate mixture and stir to coat the shredded wheat in the chocolate mixture.

  4. Classic mode Step 4

    Spoon the mixture into the cling film lined holes. Using the back of a teaspoon push the middle of each nest down to make a little ‘hollow’ or ‘nest’. When cooled remove the nests from the muffin holes and sit in turned out paper cakes. Top each nest with a few mini chocolate eggs.
