Chocolate Treats for Easter

Getting ready for Easter? Here is another recipe that takes me back to my childhood.  Every year at infant school we had an Easter Bonnet parade. My favourite Easter bonnet creation was one we made with chocolate nests on top.  I have no idea how we fixed them to the hat, in fact I’m not even sure now whether this is a genuine memory or whether I have merged it with other Easter memories over the years to create a false memory. But definitely at some point in my childhood I made Easter bonnets and Easter nests.

This is a really quick and tasty recipe for the Easter long weekend. Enjoy!

Chocolate Nests (makes 12)

200g dark chocolate
45g Golden Syrup
50g butter
150g All Bran Original

Break the chocolate into pieces and place in a heatproof bowl with the golden syrup and butter.  Place over simmering water in a small pan and melt.  Make sure the base of the bowl does not touch the simmering water otherwise the chocolate might burn.  Once melted, stir until smooth.

While the chocolate is melting, line a 12 hole muffin tray with paper cases.

Carefully stir the All Bran into the melted chocolate mixture. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases. Make a small well in the centre of the mixture to make them look like a nest, then place 2-3 chocolate eggs in the centre of each nest.

Put in the fridge to set, then eat.
