225g plain chocolate, broken into pieces
2 tbsp golden syrup
60g unsalted butter
mini chocolate eggs (to decorate)
Melt the chocolate, golden syrup and butter in a bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water, (do not let the base of the bowl touch the water).
Keep stirring continuously until the mixture until smooth and melted
Remove the bowl from the heat and stir in the cornflakes until all of the flakes are coated
Spoon the mixture into paper cases (set in a cupcake lined tin) and add mini eggs to the top of each cake
Chill in the fridge until the chocolate has set.
We also have an alternative recipe using shreddies
as many mini eggs as you want
Break up the chocolate and melt either in the microwave or in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water – making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water
Break the shreddies into bits – you can do this by rolling them in kitchen roll and banging them with a rolling pin
Add the shreddies into the chocolate and mix until all coated
On a baking sheet – spoon the mixture into mini nest shapes or place in the plastic cases in the cupcake baking tray
Add the mini eggs to the top and set in the fridge (for approx 20-30 mins)
