These are a perfect little gift for Easter! I make these up, wrap in cellophane and a little ribbon as a little gift to people. They are super easy but look effective! They have always been a hit especially with children. When making  these for children I use a mini muffin case and only two little eggs.

You can vary the chocolate used. I use pre toasted coconut that I toasted in the oven prior. I find this easier and quicker than my tmx. You don’t have to toast it. I just find its nicer. You may need a little extra coconut if you want them less chocolatey.

This was enough for 8 muffin size baskets.  Silicone moulds release the nest easier. If using a metal muffin tray you may just need the help of a knife to remove the mould.

    I am a teacher and I get kids to crush up shredded wheat cereal and add this to the melted chocolate. Not so unhealthy. Tastes crunchy and chocolatey.
