Easter-themed chocolate nest cake recipe

Easter chocolate nests

A great twist on the classic chocolate rice crispie cake using Shredded Wheat and marshmallows 


Makes roughly 14 nests

  • 300g milk chocolate
  • 100g shredded wheat, crushed
  • 80g mini marshmallows
  • 200g mini chocolate eggs, for decoration
  • Cupcake cases


  1. Melt the chocolate in a small heatproof bowl placed over a pan of gently simmering water.
  2. Pour the melted chocolate over the crushed Shredded Wheat and mix well, also incorporating the mini marshmallows.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases, pressing the back of a teaspoon into the centre of the mix to create a nest shape.
  4. Finally, arrange three mini chocolate eggs in the centre of the nest, then put the completed nests in the fridge for one hour to set.
