Servings 15 nests


  • 250 g (1 ½ cups) milk chocolate baking chocolate or chocolate coating; broken into pieces
  • 30 ml (2 tablespoon) heavy cream e.g. double cream. Room temp.
  • 100 g (3 ½ cups) cornflakes
  • 135 g (4.8 oz) mini eggs or other small chocolate eggs to decorate


  • In a large heatproof bowl, slowly melt the chocolate in the microwave (20sec bouts, stirring between) until smooth.
  • Stir in the room temperature (or warmed) cream until combined.
  • Pour in the cornflakes and gently stir through until fully coated.
  • Scoop the coated cornflakes into cupcake cases (either in a muffin tin or on a tray), using a spoon to push them aside in the middle to leave a small indent like a nest.
  • Decorate your nests with a few chocolate eggs inside the indents you’ve made. Refrigerate until set (roughly 10mins) then enjoy!


  • If you prefer a chewy chocolate cornflake nest, you can stir in 1 tablespoon (10g) of marshmallow fluff to your melted chocolate before you add in the cornflakes.
  • Instead of cornflakes, you can use another cereal like frosted flakes (which will make it sweeter) or rice krispies.
