Easter nests April 8, 2007

Easter nestsJust in case you have a lot of chocolate lurking around your place now, it’s not too late to make easter nests out of it.

You need (and these are rough quantities, just chuck in whatever you have):

  • 3-4 Mars bars (which I understand are called Milky Ways in the US, which is misleading since we have Milky Way bars in the UK but they are more like what Americans think of as a Three Musketeers bar. It’s a confusing planet.) Snickers would also work, as would a lot of other things.
  • About 70-90 grams of butter.
  • Mini eggs – at least one bag (you will eat the leftovers).
  • And then about 120-150 grams of cereal – Rice Crispies, Corn Flakes, or what have you.

In a pan, melt the butter with the chocolate bars (chop the bars up a bit to speed things up). When they are gooey, mix in the cereal – add as much cereal as you can while still making sure that every little bit gets covered in chocolate. Arrange the resulting mess in cup cake cases, top with some mini eggs and refrigerate for an hour or so before serving.

Once Easter’s over and done with, you can make these in a brownie pan and cover them with melted chocolate and sprinkles.
