Recipe: Easter Chocolate Nests

Chocolate Nests

A super treat, especially at Easter, that’s easy enough for the children to make. It’s also a handy recipe to use up any extra chocolate if you can’t quite manage to eat all your Easter Eggs!

 

Ingredients:
Makes 12
3.5oz Milk Chocolate
1.7oz Puffed Rice Cereal
24 Mini Chocolate Eggs

 

Method:
1) Melt the chocolate over a bowl of hot water (do supervise well if children are helping).
2) Stir in the puffed rice.
3) Distribute the chocolate rice mixture between 12 paper cake cases, press into nest shapes with the back of a spoon.
4) Pop a couple of mini eggs into the nest, allow to cool as the chocolate sets.
5) Share and enjoy!

Top Tips for an Epic Easter Egg Hunt

Keep it fair and fun

Avoid arguments between children by color coding the hunt, give each child one color that they need to search for. Alternatively if you have a broad range of ages playing, why not color code the hunt based on ages, younger children can look for the large gold eggs whereas the older children need to look for the pink eggs which you will have made harder to find.

 

Provide alternatives to chocolate

Think ahead about who will be participating in your Easter Egg Hunt? Are any of the children diabetic? Are they allergic to dairy, gluten, cocoa or nuts? You could always use plastic decorative eggs for them to find then have prizes such as coloring books or toys instead of the sugary treats.

Remember the baskets!

The children will need something to carry their eggs in, lots of craft stores have cute baskets you can use or alternatively you make them as an activity before the hunt. See here for a guide on how to weave your own basket.

 

Think of fun clues

If you want to add another fun element to your hunt, you could think about providing the kids with clues as to where the eggs are hidden, such as “Somewhere that’s cold (fridge)” “What shall we have for breakfast? (cereal box)”, “It’s raining outside, what shall we take with us? (umbrella stand).

Keep track of your hiding places

It’s worth making a note of the hiding places and the number of eggs hidden for your own reference.

 

Check the weather forecast

Firstly so you’re not planning to commence the hunt when it’s due to rain, also if you are hiding chocolate, double check the temperature forecasted as you might need to make sure they’re all hidden in shaded areas, or you don’t put them out too early before it kicks off. Noone wants a melted Easter egg!  If the weather is going to be stormy, plan a backup hunt for inside the house.

 

Set boundaries

Let the kids know where the searching area is, it’s important to make sure everyone has fun but in a safe environment. Show the children where the start and end of the hunting zone is.
