The Obligatory Egg Nests!

I don’t know what comes over me when it comes to holidays.  I turn into someone kind of deranged domesticated super mum, crafting and cooking, which is so unlike me.  Thank goodness for google.

Yesterday we dyed some Easter eggs and made some Cornflake Chocolate Egg Nests.  We had to improvise as the corner shop didn’t have any mini eggs!

Hopefully, Easter is over soon as I peaked too early!

Makes 10-12


  • 230g of milk chocolate
  • Cornflakes
  • M and M’s


  1. Break the chocolate up and melt in a metal bowl above a pan of boiling/ simmering water.
  2. Remove the bowl from heat and mix in cornflakes.  This involves a bit of guess work.  Keep adding until you feel that it will still form into a nest.
  3. Spoon the mixture into muffin cases.  Press down and top with the M and M’s (eggs).
  4. Put in the fridge for an hour or so until they harden.

My work here is done!
