A great alternative to the traditional chocolate nests. Far lower in saturated fat and a good source of fibre. What’s not to enjoy! So simple kids will love to help make (and eat!).  

Ingredients

4 shredded wheat, crushed

2 tbsp coco powder

4 tbsp brown sugar

8 tbsp semi skimmed milk

16 chocolate mini eggs

Method

  • Place 16 fairy cake cases on to a tray
  • Add cocoa powder, brown sugar and milk to a small saucepan
  • Heat on a medium heat, constantly whisking, until thickens and is silky in appearance, like a chocolate caramel sauce
  • Remove from heat
  • Add the crushed wheat and mix with a wooden spoon until all the wheat strands are coated
  • Spoon the mixture evenly into the fairy cake cases
  • Using a square of greaseproof paper, gently push down so the grains are packed together
  • Top each nest with 1 mini egg
  • Place the tray in the freezer for 1 hour to set
