Easter Egg Nests
They are quick to make too and not too fiddly, which is great for baking activities with children with limited concentration.
I do put the chocolate, syrup and butter in a pan and weigh out the cornflakes before calling PJ into the kitchen, which helps!
PJ loves to select the colours of the cake cases - and to mix it in - and she loves to lick the spoon!
She did very well at adding the mini eggs to the nests.
We used 300g chocolate
150 g butter
6 tblspns syrup
Melt these ingredients in a saucepan on a slow and gentle heat.
Add 300g cornflakes.
All join in stirring!
Put 2 spoons of nest egg cornflake chocolate mix into each paper case.
Gently press down and add chocolate mini eggs into each egg nest.
We made about 25-30
and there aren't many left!
