Several parents have asked me for the recipe for the Eatser nest cakes that we made on Thursday, so I thought I would put it on here for anyone who would like to make some more.
1 heaped tbsp Cocoa powder
a good squirt of Golden Syrup
2 packets of Cadbury's Mini Eggs (other brands are available :-))
You will also need some paper cake cases.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan on a low heat. Add a good squirt of golden syrup (about 6 tablespoons), or enough to ensure it binds the cornflakes together. Then add the cocoa powder. Stir together until it is a lovely dark chocolately brown colour.
Turn off the heat and gradually add the cornflakes. Keep stirring until every cornflake is coated in the chocolate mixture.
Add about a tablespoon of the mixture to each paper case and top with 2-3 mini eggs before the mixture starts to set. Put in the fridge to harden.
Makes about 30 cakes
