Today the boys enjoyed making some Easter Nests, it was a fun and easy activity suggested by nanny. It was a perfect filler for a quieter day of our holidays and great to get us in the mood for Easter.
For this you need:
400g bar of Cadburys
6 Shredded Wheat Biscuits
A Packet of Cadburys Mini Eggs
(Made 10 nests)
Such a simple recipe but I assure you the end result was very tasty, the hardest part was trying to stop Grandad from eating the chocolate and mini eggs...
First using brute force bash the shredded wheat biscuits to oblivion (ideally inside a sandwich bag to minimise mess!)
Melt chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water
Add the bashed up Shredded Wheat
Stir until covered in chocolate
Then fill a cake case with a nest shape of the chocolaty mix
Add some chocolate eggs (the more the merrier!)
Then leave to chill in the fridge for an hour
Hey presto you have an almost life like nest! Your very lucky I managed to get a photograph as they were chomped up pretty quickly, the boys did great! We normally only ever make Rice Krispies variants of this, but Shredded Wheat is our new definite favourite!
