Toddler baking: Easter Nests

Easter nests

Easter nests are brilliant to cook with young children and toddlers. There is no oven so nothing hot and the raw ingredients are all edible so it doesn’t matter when some of the mixture, inevitably ends up in their mouths. It’s also a good way to use up some of the piles of Easter chocolate. There are a million different recipes out there for Easter nests but this is our favourite.

Method: Making The Easter Nests

The first step needs to be done by an adult. Melt the chocolate, I prefer to do this over a bowl of water but you can use the microwave, when it’s melted add the marshmallows, butter and nutella, one ingredient at a time to form a paste.While I was doing this I gave the girls the cake cases to lay out.
