Chocolate Cornflake Nests

If you're looking for a fast, easy Easter recipe or something you can get the children involved with, these chocolate cornflake nests are 'eggcelent'!

Chocolate Cornflake Nests

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 6


Be prepared for sticky hands and faces...our cornflake nests ooze with chocolate, chocolate and a little more chocolate! Filled with mini marshmallows and mini chocolate cream eggs, these Easter nests are a firm favourite.


  1. In a large saucepan over a low heat add the butter and syrup and gently stir until loose and the butter has melted.
  2. Add the cocoa powder and stir, then remove from the heat.
  3. Add the cornflakes and carefully mix together until fully coated with the syrup mix.
  4. Set aside for 5 minutes, no longer otherwise the mixture may harden.
  5. Spoon the mixture into your muffin cases. For ease, have a bowl of water to dip a metal spoon into to help shape the nests without sticking.
  6. Place in the fridge to cool and set.
  7. One the nests have set, melt the white chocolate and place a spoonful into each nest. Add a few mini marshmallows into the melted chocolate.
  8. Top the nests with the mini eggs and crumble the flake over each nest.
  9. Place back in the fridge to allow the white chocolate to harden.
  10. Once set, these sweet treats are ready to enjoy straight away!


Top Tips...

  • Use plant butter for a dairy free option.
  • The chocolate syrup mix can also be made in the microwave: melt the butter into the syrup, add cocoa and leave to sit for a few minutes before adding cornflakes. Then follow from step 3.
  • Use a kitchen blow torch to lightly toast the marshmallows. Adults only and use safely.
  • Cornflake Nests make great Easter gifts in place of the usual easter eggs and can be designed specifically for the lucky recipient, i.e. vegan, dairy free, extra toppings!
  • Mix it up! Replace some of the cornflakes with rice crispies, jumbo oats or hazelnuts. You could even try a butterscotch syrup.
