Chocolate Bird Nests

The beginning of March was our first official week of home education using the nature curriculum Exploring Nature With Children. Our seasonal study unit this week was nesting birds. We ended our week by making these no bake chocolate birds nests. They were just too delicious not to share with you.

This particular recipe makes 8-10 birds nests.

You will need:

200g Milk Chocolate

85g crushed Shredded Wheat

A packet of Mini Eggs

Simply melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over gently simmering water. Carefully remove and stir in the crushed Shredded Wheat. Spoon into cupcake cases and make a well in the centre. Add 2-3 mini eggs to the well. Let set (about an hour).



Below is a handy print out of the above recipe.
