Easter Chocolate Birds Nests

Easter is quickly approaching and this is a perfect opportunity to take time out to bake with your children, nieces or nephews. Or even make these quick treats for a children’s Easter party!

The Ingredients:
200g Milk Chocolate
4 x Large Shredded Wheat Blocks

Measure out the chocolate (Excellent opportunity to get children use to the concept of measuring and using scales)
In a bowl above a saucepan of simmering hot water (Best done by the adult) melt the chocolate until it is smooth with no lumps.
Remove from the heat.
In a separate bowl crush the 4 shredded wheat blocks until there are few large lumps.
Pour the melted chocolate into the crushed shredded wheat.
All the next steps are excellent for kids to do.
Stir until everything is combined 
Place tablespoons of the mixture into muffin cases.
Decorate with chocolate eggs and other Easter themed decorations.
Refrigerate to harden chocolate.

You’re Done!
