Shredded Wheat Nests

Shredded Wheat Nests

 
These Shredded Wheat Nests are the cutest and easiet things to make - ideal for Easter "baking"  (no baking!)
 
Ingredients
  • 200g milk chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 85g shredded wheat, crushed up
  • 2 x 100g bags mini chocolate eggs
You'll also need some cupcake cases
 
Method
These are so easy to make with the kids!
 
Melt the chocolate in a small bowl placed over a pan of simmering water (you could also use the microwave, just stop the oven every 20 seconds and stir and check)
 
Pour the chocolate over the shredded wheat and stir well to combine.
 
Spoon the chocolate wheat into 10 cupcake cases and press the back of a teaspoon into the middle to create a nest shape. Place 3 mini chocolate eggs on top of each nest.
 
Chill the nests in the fridge until they set. Remove from the cupcake cases for nest effect.
 
Enjoy!
