The Easter Nest

Easter is a great excuse to get creative, whether it be decorating eggs, making simnel cake or handmade chocolates.

We've been getting messy with our toddler making delicious chocolatey treats, Easter nests. What a treat! And they couldn't be easier.

  • 225g plain chocolate

  • 2 tbsp golden syrup

  • 50g butter

  • 75g cornflakes

  • 36 mini chocolate eggs

  1. Line a 12-hole cupcake tin with paper cases.

  2. Melt the chocolate, golden syrup and butter in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir the mixture until smooth.

  3. Remove the bowl from the heat and gently stir in the cornflakes.

  4. Divide the mixture between the paper cases and press 2 chocolate eggs into the centre of each nest. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour, or until completely set.

Seminal cake! That's what I call it as well! Although, apparently, it's 'simnel' cake...

Looks delicious. Bummer I missed Easter but I'm not going to let that stop me. Eliza
