Easter Nests


These are a little Easter treat, that have been made for generations, in not only my family but probably many others too.  The recipe I use has not been written down and the ingredient quantities judged by eye and taste.

Makes about 15

You Will Need:

  • 150g Dark Chocolate
  • 120g Butter
  • 2tbsp or 60g Golden Syrup
  • 8 Shredded Wheat Biscuits – crushed

Also needed is a selection of mini eggs for example:

  • Micro Eggs
  • Mini Golden
  • Mini Eggs


  • Place your cupcake cases into your bun tray. Using a bun tray just helps to support the cases while the nests are setting.
  • Melt together the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a heat proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (a Bain-Marie).
  • Stir together until well blended.
  • Remove from the heat and add the crushed shredded wheat biscuits. It is best to do this a couple at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  • Divide the chocolate shredded wheat mixture between the cup cake cases making a slight divot in the middle of each one ready for the eggs.
  • Allow the chocolate time to set.
  • Place your selected eggs into the middle of each nest case.
