Easter Mini Egg Nests

Easter is here. Which means mini eggs, everywhere. All the time. On top of everything. Inside everything (why not in brownies instead of the chocolate chips?). It also means the obligatory mini egg nests. Which is possibly one of the easiest “bakes” around and requires absolutely zero baking. Just some melting. And who doesn’t like melting stuff? (I tried to find a video of Phoebe first meeting her brother and him spending the whole time melting things, but the internet, for once, failed me).



I’m going to keep this one short and sweet just because there isn’t all that much you can say about Easter (especially as a non-religious person) and even less you can say about nests. The one thing I would say is that I prefer shredded wheat to cornflakes. It goes less soggy and gives a much better crispiness/nest look. Let me know what you’re baking for Easter in the comments below!


Easter Mini Egg Nests
Serves: 18
  • 300g Milk Chocolate
  • Tablespoon Peanut Butter (Optional)
  • 3-4 Large Shredded Wheat
  • 1 Packet of Cadbury’s Mini Eggs or equivalent non-brand.
  1. Either in a microwave or in a heatproof bowl over simmering water (make sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water), melt the chocolate with the peanut butter until it’s smooth.
  2. Break in the shredded wheat and mix together, coating the shredded wheat well.
  3. Transfer spoonfuls of the mixture to cupcake cases, allowing to cool slightly before adding the eggs.
  4. Chill in the fridge to set.
  5. Eat. All of them.
  6. Have a good Easter.



First Birthday Giveaway

Well, I’m not quite sure how it’s happened, but the blog has officially turned one. That’s a whole lot of cake (or biscuits, or brownies) and even more peanut butter. The beard has varied in length over the last year or so. But it’s here to stay (despite my ahem, witty, April fools).

Shoot preview

Anyway, to celebrate my first Birthday as a blogger I am running a special birthday giveaway to my UK based readers. You can be in with a chance of winning some of my bakes (the ones that’ll travel best by post). The prizes will be a whole batch of my Brownies (possibly in a fancy flavour if you wanted) as well as a portion of cookies (again, these could be some of my stuffed ones, maybe).

To be in with a chance of winning just enter via the Rafflecopter below. The competition is running between April 8th 2014 and Midnight on Tuesday April 15th 2014.
