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