No-bake Easter Egg Nests

10:41 PM


Easter is around the corner and I am glad to share a cheeky little no-bake recipe with you! I actually bumped into this on Pinterest and I'm pretty sure Zoella included this in one of her vlogs recently. But  before we head on, I just wanna say that this recipe is ridiculously easy as it requires 5 simple steps. Not gonna lie though, these aren't the healthiest treats out there (considering a heap of chocolate buttons), but definitely less fatty and starchy as other goods.


Ingredients (8 servings)

  • 1 package of shredded wheat
  • 1 pack (180 grams) milk chocolate buttons
  • 24 pastel mini eggs 
Making the nests
Begin by finely crushing your shredded wheat into a bowl until they're the size of candied sprinkles. Next, melt your chocolate buttons (I used Goya) either on the microwave, or in a bowl on top of boiling water like what I did. From previous experiences, I've learned to never melt chocolate straight into a pan. Finally, mix it all together until you've got the best of both worlds evenly coated all sides with chocolate.

Building
Line your mufin/cupcake tray with 8 cupcake liners. If you're a fancy pants like me, opt for gold. Then, scoop about a table spoon and a half into your cupcake liner and gently create a nest-shape through patting the mixture into the sides, forming a small bowl to rest three mini eggs (I used Cadbury) on top. 

And viola! You're finished and 5 pounds heavier. I highly suggest you don't chill them in the fridge because the wheat will harden and make it difficult to eat. If you're planning to have an easter get-together, this recipe is perfect and a little bit more light compared to your creme egg cannoli (but I definitely want one now). 


All the love,
Regina

    1. I've seen others build chocolate nests out of pretzel pieces and I'm pretty sure you could find gluten-free pretzels :) It'd be just as good!

  5. I used to love these as a kid, though we always made them out of rice crispies or cornflakes. I might have to make them again sometime!
