It only takes four ingredients to make these mini Mars bar nests for Easter.
Mini Mars bar nests are so easy to make with the kids and can be decorated with your favourite Easter treats like chocolate eggs. The Mars bars in the recipe add a sticky sweet flavour and texture to your chocolate nests. These nests are made with Shredded Wheat but you could use Rice Krispies instead. These delicious treats would make the perfect Easter gift wrapped in a cellophane bag and tied with a ribbon. You can whip up these nests in 10 mins, all you have to do is wait patiently for them to set. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days – you can keep them on the kitchen side or in the fridge if you want your cakes to have a good crunch to them. This recipe makes 10-12 Easter cakes.
- For this Easter recipe you will need:
- 150g Shredded Wheat, crumbled
- 4 Mars bars, chopped
- 75g butter
- 150g bag chocolate eggs
Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Melt the Mars bars and butter in a large pan over a gentle heat, stir until smooth. Mix in the shredded wheat until completely covered in the chocolate mixture.
Put spoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking tray and make a slight dip in the centre to create a nest. Fill with the chocolate eggs. Leave to set until ready to eat.
