A couple of tasty ideas for Easter weekend cooking!
We do love an occasion in our house! So, this Easter I have let Annabelle loose in the kitchen and the finished product are pretty cute <3
- 3 cups coco pops (or other chocolate puffed rice cereal)
- 3 + 2 Moro bars (3 for the recipe and 2 extra for... you know, life!)
- 60 g butter
- Mini chocolate eggs
- PATIENCE ;)
- Use cooking spray or butter to coat the inside of a muffin tin, make sure you grease each cup really well so your nests don't stick.
- Chop the butter and Mars bars into small pieces and place them in a large microwave safe bowl.
- Eat one of the spare m=Moro bars (that's why you always buy extra!)
- Microwave for 30 seconds then mix the melted butter and Moro bars together.
- Microwave for another 10 seconds if the Moro need a bit more melting nb. the nougat part might not melt completely.
- Add the coco pops to the melted Moro and butter mixture, and stir in until the coco pops are well coated. (constant 'taste tests' start about now!)
- Put spoonfuls of mixture into the muffin tin, pressing down firmly to create a nest shape with a thumb or spoon indent in the middle (for your eggs).
- Shake sprinkles onto each nest (and all over the table and carpet) and put them in the fridge for half an hour.
- Once set, remove from tins with a hot knife and pop a few eggs in each nest! Add extra green sprinkles too, if needed.
Verdict: It was messy but she loved it! They taste nice with a coffee too!
Another cute idea that we might try over easter is below!
- 150g white chocolate melts
- 100g white marshmallows
- 10 yellow M&M’s
- 1-2 red licorice twists
- black icing pen
- 20 pop sticks or skewers
- Melt white chocolate in a microwave proof bowl and melt in short bursts in the microwave.
- Push marshmallows onto the pop sticks. One by one, dip into the melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off.
- Cut M&M’s in half with a sharp knife.
- Cut 4mm slices of licorice and then cut those across into half moons.
- Working quickly before the chocolate has completely set, press a half M&M into the front of the marshmallow and a licorice piece onto the top. Refrigerate to set completely.
- Once set, using icing pen, squeeze a small amount onto each marshmallow to form the eyes.
