Easter Nests

So as planned I made some Easter nests for Easter weekend. This is something I made when I was growing up and it looks as though I'm not the only one...check out Chris Skinner's little treats on The Redundancy Cookbook blog too!

I find Easter nests a little dry, so it's sometimes good to put some fruit into the mix. I've gone for dried cranberries as they give a little more juice than other dried fruit.
Here's how to make 8 nests...

Dairy Milk chocolate (230g)
Mini Eggs
Shredded Wheat (2 1/2 pillows)
dried cranberries (a handful)

How to make:
Half-fill a medium sized pan with water and bring to the boil. Turn down to a medium heat and place a glass bowl over it. Break up the chocolate and put into the bowl. Stir regularly until the chocolate has all melted then remove the bowl and put onto the sideboard. Crush the shredded wheat into the bowl and stir into the chocolate with the cranberries. Spoon into the cake cases, pop some mini eggs on top and put them in the fridge to set for about 30mins.

And if you're in a crafty kinda mood, why not make/decorate a box to put them in if you're giving them as a gift?
