These Easter nests are great to make when you have time for some family baking. Milk chocolate is melted and mixed with melted butter and golden syrup and carefully mixed into cornflakes, then decorated with shredded wheat and chocolate Mini Eggs to make up the perfect Easter nest. An ideal accompaniment for the weekend, these little bakes use only a handful of ingredients and make as little mess as possible. if mini eggs aren't available, feel free to use any chocolate, like smarties or maltesers.
Share recipe


  • 250g milk chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 75g salted butter
  • 100g cornflakes
  • 50g Shredded Wheat Cereal
  • 24 Mini Eggs


Step 1

Add the milk chocolate to a microwavable jug and microwave on full power for 30 secs. Remove and stir with a spatula and repeat the process until the chocolate has fully melted. If you don’t have a microwave, melt in a glass bowl gently over a saucepan of simmering water for 3 minutes until completely melted.

Step 2

Add 2 tbsp of the golden syrup and the butter to the melted chocolate and mix, then add the cornflakes and mix again, making sure that all of the cornflakes are evenly coated in the chocolate mixture.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, crumble the shredded wheat and mix together with 1 tbsp of golden syrup.

Step 4

Spoon into paper cupcake cases with 2 tbsp of the mixture per case. Then using your hands place the shredded wheat mixture on top of the chocolate cornflakes and mould into a nest for the mini eggs to sit in. Add 3 Mini Eggs on top of each nest then chill for 1 hour. Store in an airtight container and keep for 5-7 days.
