Posted by Nathan Lloyd | 14/04/2014 | Category: Recipes

With Easter less than a week away, we continue the theme with another fun recipe with Lola’s tasty Easter Nests.

The recipe is detailed below and, as always, we would love to hear your feedback at the foot of this article.

  • Preparation Time:  20 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 1 hour in the fridge
  • Serves:  20

Ingredients for the nests

  • 12 paper fairy cake cases
  • 100g (4) The Co-operative wholegrain wheats
  • 200g The Co-operative Fairtrade milk chocolate
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 50g unsalted butter

Ingredients for the decoration

  • 2 packets of mini chocolate eggs and you can add little chicks, too!


First, put 12 paper cases into a fairy cake tin. Then crush the wholegrain wheats into small pieces in a bowl.

Break the chocolate into small pieces and put in a medium pan with the syrup and butter.

Put a pan onto a low setting on the hob and watch the chocolate melt. Take it off the heat and stir.

Add the crushed wheats to the chocolate and quickly mix with a spoon until everything is covered in chocolate.

Use a spoon to drop the mixture into the cases and then poke a hole into the middle of each one to make nests. Leave them in the fridge until they’re hard.
