Children love helping out with this quick and easy Easter recipe.
They also love eating the ingredients as you go.
My tip is to ensure you have plenty of extra ingredients to hand for your little helpers to feast on as they ‘help’!
This recipe makes approximately 30 nests.
15 Shredded Wheat
600g cooking chocolate
8tbsp Golden Syrup
Mini eggs to decorate
Crush Shredded Wheat into a large bowl.
You may want to include one or two extra to replace any that the children eat as they ‘help’.
Break up chocolate and place into a separate, heatproof bowl. Again, you may want to include one or two extra to replace any that the children eat as they ‘help’.
Melt chocolate and butter in a bain-marie over a medium-low heat.
As you are waiting for the chocolate to melt, the children can set out the cake cases.
Once melted stir in the golden syrup. Immediately pour the melted mixture over the Shredded Wheat and mix thoroughly.
Spoon mixture into cases quickly before the chocolate begins to set.
Finally, add three mini eggs to each ‘nest’.
Oh yes, and you may want to add a few extra – just in case the kids eat them as they help! (See Bel in the background here!)
