Chocolate robins‘ nests
Prep these festive chocolate robins’ nests in less than 30 minutes. Made with cornflakes, they‘re ideal for getting younger children involved in the kitchen.
- Serves: 12 persons
- 100g milk chocolate, broken into pieces
- 100g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
- 100g cornflakes
- icing sugar, for dusting
- paper cupcake cases
- decorative robins, optional – find these in stores with the Christmas decorations
Step 1Line 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 2Tip 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 3Dust 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.
