Easter Inspired Chocolate Cornflake Nests

Easter Inspired Chocolate Cornflake NestsHow could we celebrate Easter without some chocolate cornflake nests? I bet most of you already made them in one form or another.

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 🙂

Easter Inspired Chocolate Cornflakes Nests - Eggs Easter Inspired Chocolate Cornflakes Nests - Mini EggsTo make them more Easter like, a bag of some tiny chocolate eggs could come in handy too.

Easter Inspired Chocolate Cornflakes Nests - Silicone CasesOnce you have all your ingredients ready, prepare 12 silicone muffin cases and let’s get melting.

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.

Chocolate for Easter Inspired Chocolate Cornflakes NestsWe had three bowls going as we used white, milk and dark chocolate.

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.

Easter Inspired Chocolate Cornflakes NestsI 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.

Enjoy!
