Can you believe Easter is almost here? Time flies when you’re having fun I guess.
This time I thought it would be nice to get a themed treat post up a little before the holiday in question, that way if anyone wanted to try it they might actually have time.
I have just recently become aware of Easter Nests, and instantly knew I wanted to make them. They are quite simple and absolutely adorable.
WARNING: If you don’t have a massive sweet tooth these aren’t for you.
You Will Need
11/2 Cups Milk Chocolate Chips
11/2 Cups White Chocolate Chips
2 Tablespoons Butter
4 Packages Shredded Wheat Biscuits
Mini Eggs Of Your Choice( I used Whoppers)
12 Eastery Cupcake Cups
What To Do
Line a muffin tin with the cupcake liners.
In a double-boiler( Bain Marie) melt your milk chocolate, stirring occasionally until smooth, add a tablespoon of butter and stir in till melted.
Stir in about half of the shredded wheat and gently fold together until the wheat is completely coated in chocolate.
Gently press the chocolate wheat mixture into the cupcake cups, filling them up about half way.
Melt the white chocolate in the same way you melted the other, but please use a clean bowl.
And the remaining butter and shredded wheat to the white chocolate and fold in until completely coated.
Carefully put the white chocolate mixture on top of the milk chocolate mixture. You want to make sure that the top layer is neat and shaped like a birds nest.
Using your thumb, gently make a slight indentation in the center of each nest so the eggs have a place to sit.
Place three eggs in the center of each nest.
Let set for two or more hours before serving.
And there you go, twelve adorable Easter themed treats!
These were so much fun to make, I think I need to get into doing more themed baking, it really gets my creative juices flowing.
