Made these for my family and we all loved them! I only used 100g chocolate and 50g Rice Krispies (as I had no shredded wheat) and made 10 cupcake sized treats. Would 100% recommend

Made these for family over Easter - good, easy recipe. The above amount made 10 fairy cake size nests. They kept well and were still hard after 3 days in an air-tight container.

These taste so much better using mars bars instead of just plain chocolate

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.
