You’ll also need

  • paper cupcake cases
  • decorative robins, optional – find these in stores with the Christmas decorations


  • STEP 1

    Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases. Melt all the chocolate in a small heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Or, do this in 20-second bursts in the microwave.

  • STEP 2

    Tip the cornflakes into a large heatproof bowl and pour over the melted chocolate. Stir well to coat. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases, making a gap in the middle of each using the back of the spoon to create a nest. Chill for 2 hrs to set.

  • STEP 3

    Dust the nests with icing sugar and sit a robin decoration in the centre of each, if you like (remove before eating). Will keep in an airtight container for three days.
