In the run up to Easter how about having a go at these super easy, classic chocolate egg nests.
All the ingredients you need are:
some milk and dark chocolate depending on your preference (I like a mix of the two)
some shredded wheat cereal
a packet of mini eggs
(afraid I'm not at all precise with quantities - I tend to just make it up as I go along)
Simply melt the chocolate in bowl in the microwave and in another bowl crush up the shredded wheat, add together until you have a sticky gooey mess. Then transfer spoonfuls to paper cupcake cases and add a few mini eggs for decoration.
Perfect for a quick and easy cooking activity to do with little ones and you could always line a basket with tissue paper and give some of these as an Easter gift (if you can manage not to eat them before they leave the kitchen!)
