Chocolate crispy Easter nests


It's always great to have a recipe that can be made from start to finish by young children with only minimal help from a grown up. These chocolate crispies can be easily turned into nests for a fun Easter treat.

If you have several children involved, they can take it in turn to do the mixing and then all make up their own nests.

Time: 15 minutes plus time to chill
Age: Under 5's
Level: Easy

Materials
150g cooking chocolate
125g rice crispy cereal (cornflakes would also work well or shredded wheat would give a more nesty look)
Chocolate eggs
Paper cases

Method
Break the chocolate into small pieces

Melt the chocolate in a microwave

Stirring the warm chocolate to make sure it has all melted


Pour in the rice cripies and mix well until they are fully coated in chocolate.

Make sure everything is covered in chocolate, you could even add some raisins too


If your mixture is still very chocolatey you can add some more crispies.
Spoon the chocolate mixture into paper cases. When you're doing this with little ones, you will end up having just as much outside the case as inside but you can scoop this up and pop in another case and it's great for improving their fine motor skills.

Ready to fill

Just a few eggs needed now


Add a few chocolate eggs to the top of the nests while the chocolate is still melted so that they stick.

These are so simple to make and look great especially at Easter.
