“These are quick and easy to make and the children love them. The recipe is from a Junior School Parents Group Cookbook, UK., and has travelled all over the place. Alternative fillings can be used, i.e. ,cream with raspberries, cream with pineapple.”
10 nests

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 ounces light corn syrup
  • 6 ounces good dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 6 ounces butter
  • 5 ounces corn flakes
  • 3 ounces grated chocolate, milk or dark (optional)
  • 12 pint cream
  • 30 miniature chocolate eggs or 30 candy sprinkles


  1. Melt the syrup, chocolate and butter together in double-saucepan or microwave.
  2. Add the cornflakes and mix well, so that they are all well-covered.
  3. Press into lightly-greased ramekins, or large muffin cups, and hollow up the sides into nest shapes.
  4. There should be enough for 10 nests.
  5. Leave to cool and set.
  6. When set, turn them out by running a sharp knife round the edge of each nest.
  7. For the filling, simply whip the cream and add the grated chocolate- you may need to add sugar to the cream if you are using fruit.
  8. Decorate with mini-eggs.
