Birds Nest Recipe

If you are putting on a little bird shower or woodland party these little birds nests are a must - and they are delicious too! I used one of my wood circles to display these treats. Another idea is to use custom made flags on toothpicks that stick into the nests.

Makes 12 | Takes 15 minutes to make, plus chilling
100g butter, cubed
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
50g milk chocolate buttons in your choice of color
75g Syrup
4 Large shredded wheat (I used Post brand)
36 mini chocolate eggs (I used M&M's)

1. Put the butter into a medium bowl, then add the cocoa powder, chocolate buttons and golden syrup. Microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds, or until melted, then stir to mix everything together.
2.Hold 1 Shredded Wheat over the bowl and squeeze in your hand to crumble it in. Repeat with the other 3 Shredded Wheat. Stir to mix evenly.
3.Line the patty tin with 12 paper cake cases and put a generous tablespoonful of mixture into each of the paper cases. Press the centre of each nest with your fingers to make a slight dip, then arrange 3 mini chocolate eggs in each of the dips. Chill for 30 minutes before eating.

Chef's tip
For this recipe you’ll need a 4.5cm wide, 2.5cm deep 12-bun patty tin (a small fairy cake tin) and 12 paper cake cases.
