Chocolate Cornflake Easter Nests Ingredients
To make approximately 12 good-sized delicious no-bake Easter treats, you’ll need:
- 200g bar of chocolate – milk or plain both work well, but kids tend to prefer milk chocolate in my experience
- 50g butter
- 3 tablespoons of golden syrup
- pinch of salt (optional)
- around 100g of cornflakes
- Cadbury mini eggs to decorate
Chocolate Cornflake Nests Method
Set out 12 paper cake cases, or grease a muffin tin if you don’t have any.
Gently melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup together. You can do this very slowly in a saucepan over the hob, in a bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, or even in a microwave.
Add some salt if you like.
Stir in 100g of cornflakes and you get this gooey, crunchy load of deliciousness. This mix makes enough for around 12 good sizes nests.
You may find you need to add more cornflakes, if there is a lot left in the bowl.
ALTERNATIVE: you could use Rice Krispies or Shredded Wheat if you don't have Cornflakes.
Next just scoop the mixture into the cake cases. I put them into a muffin tin to help them keep their shape, and to a make it easier for the girls to fill them.

Decorate Your Chocolate Cornflake Easter Nests
Finally, add a couple of Mini Eggs, and a chick if you have them. You could also add on a sprinkle of desiccated coconut if you like. Allow to set in the fridge.
The girls were very proud of their chocolate cornflake Easter nests.
