Easter holidays are tough for me this year as I love chocolate and cake and I just can’t have any! But baking is also one of the best activities for the school holidays. So with my daughter eager to make something for her friends and family, I helped her out with her idea of making chocolate nests.
This has got to be the easiest ‘baking’ ever! I let her be in charge and tell me what I needed to do. So she broke up shredded wheat into a bowl. I was tasked with melting the chocolate over a pan of hot water and once melted I poured it into the shredded wheat bowl. She then mixed it all together. I had bought some Easter themed cake cases and little sticks from a local pound shop and they set the cakes off a treat. The little nests were then made in each case and some chocolate eggs added to complete the nest effect.
They looked great once they had set and I believe they tasted pretty good too. We were certainly popular amongst the neighbours on Easter Sunday!
Now just another 2 weeks of holidays to fill!
