When thinking of Easter treats these were one of the first things that came to mind. Quick and simple they’re also the perfect treat to make with a child.
Chocolate and cereal are mixed and placed in cupcake papers to form the nest, and they’re finished with some candy eggs. I tend to prefer Cadbury’s mini eggs, but in this case used robin’s eggs.
I like to take them out the cupcake papers to serve, I think it looks nicer. You can leave them in there, or not even use them at all, just put the scoops of mixture onto a lined baking tray.
I’m thinking of experimenting and using a marshmallow mix for the nest, akin to a rice krispie treat so it’s a little softer and chewier.. I’ll let you know how that goes!
We’ll be selling our Easter nests for $12 per dozen.
