Chocolate nests

Makes 12 - 16 nests

300 g chocolate, broken into pieces 
4 x 250 ml rice crispies cereal
mini candy coated chocolate eggs 


  1. Place 250 ml water in an AMC 20 cm Gourmet Low or 20 cm Synergy High and heat over a medium temperature until Visiotherm reaches first red area. Place chocolate in a 20 cm Dome and place over the warm water. Reduce heat to the lowest setting and stir every now and then to melt chocolate to a smooth mixture.
  2. Meanwhile place cereal in an AMC 24 cm Dome. Pour melted chocolate over the cereal and stir until combined.
  3. Scoop some of the mixture into a well greased muffin pan or silicone muffin cups. Use a spoon to create a hollow in the centre. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set.
  4. Carefully remove from muffin pan and fill with chocolate eggs before serving. 

Tips & variations:

  • Substitute rice crispies with corn flakes.
  • Add desiccated coconut with the rice crispies in a ratio you prefer. 
  • You can secure the eggs to the basket with additional melted chocolate. 
  • Use either dark or milk chocolate, or combine the two.
