Easy Easter Egg Nests

If you are planning a craft gathering to make your bunnies and chicks for Easter, then you’ll need some nibbles to go with it.

You will need just 3 ingredients:

  • 60g Rice Krispies – or Cornflakes!
  • 150g milk, white or dark chocolate
  • 36 Mini Eggs or 12 decorative toppers!

How to make:

  • Break the chocolate up into squares and place into a heat proof bowl.
  • Microwave or place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water for 10 seconds, stirring until it gently melts.
  • Take the bowl of chocolate off the heat and tip in your Rice Krispies and stir gently until they are all coated in chocolate.
  • Spoon into cupcake wrappers or on a flat, cool surface and place 3 Mini Eggs in the centre before the mixture cools. Wait until completely cool before eating (we know this is the hardest part!).

Vegan Easter Egg Nests

This recipe uses vegan chocolate and marzipan for the eggs!  

You will need:

  • 60g Rice Krispies – or Cornflakes!
  • 200g dark vegan chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon of golden syrup (optional)
  • Marzipan
  • Vegan food colouring (optional)

How to make:

  • Break the chocolate up into squares and place into a heat proof bowl.
  • Microwave or place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water for 10 seconds, stirring until it gently melts.
  • For extra sweetness, stir in one tablespoon of golden syrup
  • Take the bowl of chocolate off the heat and tip in your Rice Krispies and stir gently until they are all coated in chocolate.
  • Spoon into cupcake wrappers or on a flat, cool surface – if you want to add some eggs in the middle, leave a little dent in the centre of each nest.
  • Roll small pieces of marzipan into egg shaped pieces – you can use food colouring if you would like to make different coloured eggs. Place 3 eggs in the centre dent. Wait until completely cool before eating (we know this is the hardest part!).
