Not wanting to eat a whole Easter Egg this year, I decided to go back to basics and make some little easter egg nests.  Chocolate without too much guilt.

 

You will need:-

Two Shredded wheat (the big uns)

One packet of mini eggs

two packets of chocolate buttons (or other chocolate you like)

 Add crushed shredded wheat to the chocolate.

Mix together until fully coated.

Place a couple of tea spoon fulls in each cupcake case.

Spread around to kind of resemble a nest.

Add choc eggs!
