Makes 12

Ingredients

  • 225g (8oz) plain chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 50g (2oz) butter, cut into little cubes
  • 75g (2¾oz) cornflakes

To decorate

  • 36 mini chocolate eggs

 

Method

  1. Line a 12-hole fairy cake tin with paper cases. (If you don’t have cases, grease the tin with butter and dust with a little flour.)

  2. Melt the chocolate, golden syrup and butter in a bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water (make sure the bowl is big enough so that the base doesn’t touch the water). Stir the mixture until smooth.

  3. Remove the bowl from the heat and gently stir in the cornflakes until all of the cereal is coated in the chocolate.

  4. Divide the mixture between the paper cases and press 3 chocolate eggs into the centre of each nest. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour, or until completely set.
