Easter Egg Nests

Easter Egg Nests Recipe

Told not to bring anything to Easter lunch or dinner, butttttt… you still want to impress? Say no more. These Easter Egg Nests make a really impressive (but super low fuss) sweet option and make even cuter little Easter gifts for friends and family.
Using only 4 ingredients, they are really simple to make and an egg-cellent way to get kids involved.
You can use any cooking chocolate you like; dark, milk or white (or even play around with 2 different types). You could even experiment with cornflakes or breaking up some pretzels to replace the puffed rice.
Easter Egg Nests Recipe
You will need:
  • 1 small packet of mini Easter eggs
  • 1 cup puffed rice
  • 1 block of cooking chocolate (white, dark or milk)
  • a pinch of salt
How to make:
  1. Melt the chocolate on the stove top: bring a small saucepan with 1/2 cup of water to the boil, and once boiling, place a heat proof bowl over the top. Add in the chocolate and a pinch of salt, turn the heat down to a simmer, and melt the chocolate. Stir occasionally.
  2. In the meantime, add the puffed rice into a separate mixing bowl. Pour over the melted chocolate. Mix to combine.
  3. Using a spoon as a measure, spoon out your nests onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Push down gently in the centre of each nest.
  4. Once all the mixture has been used up, place your nests into the fridge to set for at least 3-4 hours.
  5. Place your mini eggs into and around the nest.
