Materials

  • 1 (large) shredded wheat biscuit
  • 4 Mini Easter Eggs (Cadbury Mini Eggs are perfect for this project)
  • Chocolate (1/2 cup)
  • Parchment Paper

Instructions

  • Step 1

  • Step 4

  1. Crumble up the shredded wheat biscuit so that it forms loose "sticks" of cereal with no lumps.
  2. Melt the chocolate. You can do this by using a double boiler (or a pot placed over a saucepan of boiling water). Alternatively you can place in the microwave for 10 second increments, stirring between each until it is melted.
  3. Mix the shredded wheat with the chocolate until it is completely coated
  4. Tip the chocolate mix onto parchment paper. Using your hands shape into a nest shape. In particular you want to create a "bowl" shape in the center with raised sides so that you can place your eggs in the nest without them rolling out
  5. Put the nest in the fridge so that the chocolate can harden.
  6. Remove from the fridge and place the eggs in the nest - display: or just eat! :)

Tips

  1. Make sure you mix thoroughly before trying to shape the nests, as the chocolate is needed to "glue" the sticks together.
