Easter nest crispy cakes

 These are really quick and easy Easter treats to make! Everyone has probably eaten or made a chocolate crispy cake before but I thought I would post a recipe that I used today so you can all whip these up tonight or tomorrow to finish off the Easter weekend nicely. They are not just for Easter however, these are yummy treats all year round, with or without the mini eggs. I used cornflakes but you can use any cereal really, such as rice crispies, special k etc. I used some summery cupcake cases to brighten these up and get in the Easter/spring spirit!
Makes about 8
- 30g butter
- 50g milk chocolate
- 25g dark chocolate
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp runny honey
- few handfuls of cornflakes (or other cereal)
- Cadbury's mini eggs, to decorate

1. Melt the butter and chocolate over a low heat.
2. Once melted, turn off the heat and stir in the sieved cocoa powder and honey.
3. Stir in handfuls of cornflakes at a time until completely coated in the chocolate mixture.
4. Spoon into cupcake cases, placing a mini egg in the middle of each.
5. Refrigerate for half an hour or until solid!

Enjoy :)
