What to do:

  • Line the muffin tin with paper cup cake holders
  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave (stir every 30s, it should take about 2 minutes on 100% power), or in the top of a double boiler.
  • Stir in the Rice Krispies and place a heaped dessert spoonful into each paper case.
  • Using your finger, or the back of the spoon, make a hollow in the middle for the eggs.
  • Place a few mini-Easter eggs or egg-shaped chocolates or sweets in the middle of each nest and allow to cool and harden in the fridge.
  • Remove the nests from the muffin pan and place on some packing straw for an attractive Easter display.
  • Eat and enjoy. Makes 9 nests.
