Easter Nests

A toddler friendly Easter treat with minimal mess.

With Easter fast approaching, Emily and I have been getting our bake on. I have seen some really yummy recipes and ideas floating around, such as this tasty creme egg cheesecake from taming twins. Which I really want to attempt to recreate, while I'm a food blogger, I do love to cook and bake. So I thought I would share our really simple, toddler friendly Easter Nests with you. 

200g Cadbury chocolate
Corn Flakes
Mini eggs (to decorate)

How to make them?
- Break up the Corn Flakes, you can use Shredded wheat or rice krispies if you prefer. I personally think shredded wheat makes the nests look more like a birds nest.
- Melt your chocolate and then add it into a bowl with your shredded wheat.
Spoon the mixture into the cake cases, and then add your mini eggs for decoration.

Emily absolutely loves making these, she often asks to make chocolate cakes. It is also super simple. I had Emily do the majority of the work by herself, as she is getting older she is getting more independant and wants to do absolutely everything by herself. She had lots of fun breaking up the chocolate into a bowl, and then mixing in the cornflakes. I normally would use shredded wheat, as I feel like it looks more like a birds nest - but I share a household with the most fussy toddler who won't eat it. So I crushed up cornflakes instead in a attempt to recreate the same kind of look.

Emily loved adding the eggs to the nests, she was very particular about how she placed them into the nests too. They had to be sitting upright. I think they turned out beautifully. What is your favourite Easter recipe or activity? I would love to know.


  1. We also love making cornflake nests for Easter around here. It's so much fun to go for a simple recipe when 'baking' with toddlers, isn't it?

  2. These are great to make with toddlers! Must get ourselves easter ready and make some with the toddler. x

  3. These look delicious. I was planning to make a cake with my oldest but weekends have been so busy and we only have this Saturday left as we are off away for Easter.
