Chocolate Easter Nests

With Easter just around the corner it is time to start thinking about baking all the delicious Easter treats that come with it! Although I am more of a savoury person to sweet I do love indulging in chocolate every now and again and there is no better opportunity than Easter.

These little Easter nests are so simple to make and are a great activity for the whole family including little hands. They are not healthy by any stretch of the imagination but they sure are tasty and you definitely won’t be able to stop munching on them!
