Easter nest cakes

Easter nest cakes are a classic at this time of the year and are just brilliant for making with children. Apart from melting the chocolate, they can make them pretty much by themselves. Here you go ……………

8 shredded wheats (full size)

4 digestive biscuits

2 handfuls mini marshmallows

2 handfuls sultanas

200g chocolate

Jelly beans to decorate

Break up the shredded wheat into a large mixing bowl (using fingers !!)

Break up the digestives into little pieces then stir into the shredded wheat, along with the marshmallows and sultanas.

Break the chocolate into small pieces and melt

Pour the melted chocolate into the bowl of shredded wheat and then mix until everything is evenly coated.

Share the mixture between approx 16 paper cases and press down in the centre to create the nest effect.

Nestle three jelly beans or mini eggs in the centre of each nest and then pop in the fridge to harden for an hour.
