Sweet treats: No-bake Easter nests are fun food for all the family

The Easter nests.
The Easter nests.

We love these Easter nests with Cacao Boost which gives them a delicious chocolate-caramel flavour.

These no-bake goodies are also a lot of fun for all of the family to make together.

Little ones will have a blast decorating them with creme eggs, mini eggs, or any Easter treats they like. However, there is an element to this recipe method that uses a pan on heat, so be sure to either oversee this element, or do it for them.

The peanut butter is an amazing addition, good luck stopping at just one!

The Easter nests.

Ingredients

  • 125g peanut butter
  • 75ml maple or agave syrup
  • 60g coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp Cacao Boost
  • 88g shredded wheat (4 biscuits)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 packet of mini chocolate eggs or creme eggs

Method

  1. Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
  2. In a small pan combine the peanut butter, syrup, salt and coconut oil
    and place over a low heat until combined. Once melted together, stir in the Cacao Boost and shredded wheat.
  3. Scoop out a tablespoon of the mixture and place on to a baking tray, then use the back of a spoon to mould into a nest shape.
  4. Place in the fridge to set for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Once set, top with the chocolate eggs and enjoy. We topped a batch with mini eggs and another batch with creme eggs.
