This easy to prepare treat is one of our family favourites. It takes very little time to prepare and it always taste good. Who wouldn’t like the taste of crunchy chocolate bites as a treat?
The ingredients list isn’t very complicated. Basically all you need is some cornflakes and a chocolate bar or two 🙂
Place a large bowl over a pot of simmering water. Make sure that water doesn’t boil to rapidly so yours chocolate can melt slowly.
Once your chocolate has melted pop some cornflakes into the bowl and mix gently.
Ideally you want to cover every little bit of the cornflakes with chocolate but stir it gently so you don’t break the cornflakes pieces too much.
I was planning to “sit” my eggs on a grass-like green cornflakes. I used a green liquid food dye and the white chocolate but it didn’t work as well as I hoped. The food dye made my chocolate curdle, hence quite poor coverage of my cornflakes. I think powder food colouring would be a better option – lesson learnt and I will put this new found knowledge into a good use next time.
Once your cornflakes are nicely covered it is time to start filling those silicone muffin cases. Remember to leave a small dip in the middle so you have some space for the mini eggs.
Pop a few eggs into each nest and place the entire lot in the fridge so it can set.
Allow them to set for at least 45 minutes.
Serve straight from the fridge.
