Because our oven’s on the blink (again!), my Easter treat options were a little limited this year. I was so eager to featured these chicks though I thought I’d make a batch of easy chocolate nests – y’know, the kind you remember making as a kid? Yep, not exactly Cordon Bleu cooking but tasty none-the-less… I just can’t stop nibbling away at them. To give them a more adult-appealing edge, I’ve added some Cornish sea salt – I am officially obsessed with salt and dark chocolate, so couldn’t resist including a pinch or two here. Happy Easter everyone!
what you’ll need
2 x 100g good quality dark chocolate
1 250g box of cornflakes
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp golden syrup
fluffy chicks (optional but cute)
what you’ll do
bring a small pan of water to the boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. place a shallow plate on top and slowly melt the chocolate, syrup and salt together.
empty the cornflakes into a large bowl and pour over the melted chocolate. mix thoroughly until all the flakes are completely covered, and spoon into the muffin cases.
refrigerate until hard. makes 16.
