These were great. Very easy to make and tasted lovely. We used 5 shredded wheat (Aldi ones so might be different size?!) and made 13 nice sized nests with two mini eggs in each. Best eaten the day they're made as they do go soft quickly..

Had great fun making these, so easy the kids can do the lot!
The mixture above only made enough to fill 6 cases for us though.
