These are great fun to make with kids – no baking required!
Melt 150g / 6oz dark chocolate, 125g / 5oz butter and 1/4 cup golden syrup (corn syrup should do fine as an alternative). Mix in 3 1/2 cups Rice Krispies (Rice Bubbles), 3/4 cup shredded coconut and 1/2 cup icing sugar. I put them into cup cake cases placed in patty pans/small muffin pans (the cases aren’t essential but they’re going to kindy and it sort of helps to contain things!) filled almost to the top. Then make small indentations into the top to make a nest shape. Cool in the fridge for at least 2 hours (I did overnight).
You could just put the mini eggs in now but since they have to travel to kindy, I thought it better to set the eggs in place. I made a fudgey icing by melting 50g / 2oz chocolate and 2 tablespoons butter then mixing in 1/4 to a 1/3 cup icing sugar to make a soft paste. Put about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon in each nest and squidge the eggs onto it to keep them in place. Cool. Decorate with cute chicks.
And of course, the important final step – decide who gets to scrape the bowl..
