What a fun way of using up chocolate Easter eggs, and keeping everyone entertained. Only 5 ingredients needed, just try not to eat too many chocolate eggs at once, as the Easter menu can be rather generous.

The countdown for Easter has started! How exciting! If you are not quite sure what to do for Easter, no need to panic yet, there is still plenty of time left to gather ideas for your big day meal and activities for little ones.

It is such a special time of the year, when we get to have the whole family celebrating with us. And then you have the lovely Spring weather, the joy, the laughter. Happy times!!!

How do you make Easter chocolate nests?

First, add the butter and chocolate to a bowl, and set over a pan of simmering water to melt. Add the rice krispies and golden syrup (or honey) and mix well to combine.

Oil a 6-hole muffin tin, divide the mixture evenly, then use for fingers to give the shape of a bird’s nest.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours so that the nests can firm up. To remove from the tin, use a sharp knife to ease up the edges, then fill the nests with chocolate easter eggs.

What else can you use instead of rice krispies to make Easter nests?

If you haven’t got rice krispies, not a problem you can still make some spectacular Easter nests. Cornflakes are a great substitute, or shredded wheat crushed lightly. Plain rice noodles used in bombay mix snacks are also pretty good, if you can find.

The amount of these cereal needed might vary depending on their size and texture, so add less at first, and see if the mixture is the right consistency.
