I like easy stuff. Stuff that doesn't involve complicated recipes and hundreds of ingredients. So with Easter just around the corner, I thought I'd try making some Easter Nests with the Wee One. My mum makes these with her a lot, and my gran used to make them when we were little (and not so little!!).
So all we need is:
a packet of cornflakes (Aldi's own brand are great)
a 500g bar of chocolate (again, Aldi's own brand stuff is lovely - I am not sponsored by them, honestly!!)
An handful of raisins (optional)
Mini eggs to decorate
Simple right? Melt the chocolate, crush the cornflakes into the chocolate, add in your raisins, mix.
So simple even the Wee One can do it.
Then we just spooned the mixture into our paper cases. The Wee One had the important job of putting the eggs in the nest...
... and the even more important job of licking the spoon!
And there we have it. Simple Easter Nests that even I, the most bakery-challenged person in the world, can make.
They look quite tasty I must say:
