Cooking With Buddy : Chocolate Nests

Wednesday, 26 February 2014

Yummy, yummy and easy and quick to make, so why not! Yup, Button is fast asleep and I'm just trying to keep Buddy busy till bedtime. So we are making some chocolate cornflake nests. 


50g butter
100g chocolate, broken into small pieces
2.5 tbsp golden syrup
80g cornflakes


1. Grown ups can do this and can have a bit of help stirring from the kiddies, just remember aprons on and hair tied back. Place the butter and the chocolate pieces in a saucepan with the golden syrup. Slowly melt over low heat, stirring. When the mixture is well blended, stir in the cornflakes.  

2. The messy or clean bit depending on what you do. Hands in and make a few nest shapes, place onto a plate covered in baking paper.  Or place some small paper cake cases on a tray. Fill each one with a heaped tablespoon of the mixture. Put in the fridge to set.

Have fun with them, we added mini chocolate eggs to our nests but you could add sprinkles, dried fruit, marshmallows. You could try rice crispies or shredded wheat instead of cornflakes, use dark chocolate or try something adventurous!

Happy Face!
