Ingredients

*1 cup breakfast cereal  

100g dark chocolate  

30g butter

1 tbsp golden syrup

Oil for brushing

18 mini chocolate eggs

*You could use rice bubbles, puffed wheat, cornflakes, granola – or a mix of whatever you have in your pantry!

Method

  1. Melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave.
  1. Put the melted chocolate and butter into a large bowl and add your chosen breakfast cereal and the golden syrup. Mix so that the cereal is coated.
  1. Put a paper muffin case into each section of a 6-hole muffin tray (or lightly oil) and add the nest mixture.  
  1. Press down with your (clean!) fingers or the back of a spoon to make a hole so it looks a bit like a bird’s nest.  
  1. Chill in the fridge for about 2 hours.
  1. When they have set, add three mini chocolate eggs to each nest. You could also add jellybeans, berries or whatever you fancy.
