Little Easter Chocolate Nests

Happy Easter everybody! I've just knocked up these little chocolate nests for my niece and nephew and I'm really happy with how they've turned out. These Easter treats are quick, easy to make and if you have kids it's a great one for them to help out with too. I've used milk chocolate this time, but it works just as well with dark of even white chocolate.

Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Baking Time: No baking required!
100g Chocolate (Broken up)
50g Unsalted Butter (Cubed)
50g Golden Syrup
4 Shredded Wheat
A few mini chocolate eggs (Or anything else you want to try)

First you need to line a muffin tray with six paper cases, then melt the chocolate together with the butter and syrup. You can do this over a bain-marie, but I just did it in the microwave, on medium for 90 seconds. Once its melted stir it all together until it's smooth and glossy. Crumble in your shredded wheat one at a time, making sure they are as well broken up as you can. Stir it all together until nicely combined, then spoon the mix equally into the cases. Press each down towards the edges leaving a well in the middle, then fill with a few mini eggs. Leave for an hour to cool and set. Finished!
