Not only are these cute little nests the perfect little sweet temptation, they are also a wonderful way to bring Easter and the feeling of Spring to your table. They are easy to make and oh so cute!
To make 10 chocolate nests you will need :
* 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
* 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter
* 2T corn syrup
* 4 c. corn flakes
* 30 chocolate mini eggs
*paper baking cups
* a muffin tray with 12 holes
Put the 10 baking cups in the muffin tray. Put the chocolate chips in a saucepan. Cut up the butter and add it to the pan. Then dip a tablespoon into hot water and use it to add the corn syrup. The syrup will slide off the hot spoon.
Gently heat the pan on low heat until the chocolate and butter have melted. Stir the mixture the whole time. Turn off the heat and add the corn flakes. Gently stir them into the chocolate until they are coated all over, trying not to completely crush the corn flakes!
Using a teaspoon, fill the baking cups with the chocolate mixture. Make a hollow in the middle of each nest with the spoon. Push the flakes up the sides of the baking cups with your spoon to form your nest. Put 3 mini eggs into each nest. Put the nests in the fridge and let them harden for about an hr.
Once they have hardened, you can remove them from the baking cups - carefully. They are kind of fragile! After you have placed them on your serving plate, etc., put back in the fridge until about 30 minutes before you want to serve them! They would look adorable in your table setting as place card markers!
Wishing you peace, love and a little pixie dust,
