Chocolaty easter Treats!

In true Easter spirit this weekend, I wanted to make some chocolaty Easter treats to share with the family. These crunchy cornflake nests are so easy to make that I thought I would share with you all the steps so that you can make them too, as who can resist a bit of chocolate?! For these yummy little nests you will need:
8 ounces of milk chocolate
3 ounces of cornflakes
2 tablespoons of golden syrup
36 mini eggs (or double that if you're like me and eat them along the way, oops)
12 cupcake cases & cupcake tin
Firstly melt the chocolate and syrup in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bowl isn't touching the water to prevent the chocolate from burning! Stir the chocolate and syrup gently until smooth, once melted mix in the cornflakes until covered with chocolate. Then portion the cornflakes into 12 cupcake cases and decorate with 3 eggs. To finish, simply leave them to set in the fridge for an hour, wait patiently and enjoy! It's that easy.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and happy Easter!



Try not to eat them all at once like me!
