Making Birds Nests

It may be a while until Easter is here but we are feeling spring like and decided to make a spring treat, birds nests. Yum!

You need:

  • Shredded wheat (this is the only reason we buy it)
  • Chocolate mini eggs
  • Bun cases
  • Chocolate

Break up the shredded wheat, as much as you want birds nests.

Melt the chocolate. I use the microwave or you can use a bain-marie. Add the chocolate to the shredded wheat and mix well ensuring chocolate coats everything.

Scoop the mix into bun cases.

The two spoon scoop is a great fine motor skills exercise.

Licking the spoons and scraping bowls is always a favourite bakers job!

Squish two eggs into the shredded wheat to complete the nest.

Now the difficult bit ... wait until the chocolate cools and hardens! Enjoy.
