Time to make some Easter Nests!

Time to make some Easter Nests!

It's that time of year when all our thoughts turn to chocolate treats and baking with the little ones......I prefer the quick easy solutions with the maximum chocolatey squidginess myself so here is a good recipe for edible ( I hate the shredded wheat option ) rice krispie nests....mmmmmmm

Ingredients

Nests

  • 200 g Milk Chocolate (finely chopped)
  • 200 g Dark Chocolate (finely chopped)
  • 100 g Unsalted Butter
  • 100 g Golden Syrup
  • Half a box of rice krispies

Topping

  • Cadbury's mini eggs

Melt the butter and golden syrup in a pan over low heat. When melted pop in the chopped up chocolate and stir till all melted. Tip the gooey loveliness into the bowl of rice krispies and stir the whole thing until all covered.

I used the muffin cases as they look more attractive and then topped each nest with some little eggs of your choice!

Oh, and by the way, pictured in the photo is our new dinosaur wipe clean apron which we are sure will be a real winner in the kitchen!

Available May.
