You might not want to go anywhere with your children this Easter – and that’s fine! Here’s a recipe for making some lovely healthy Easter Cakes that you and your children can make together without any baking:
Chocolate Crispy Nest Cakes (makes 12)
225g of plain chocolate (plain chocolate contains less refined sugar)
2 tbsp of honey (consider locally sourced such as Thursaston Honey)
50g of butter (can be bought locally at Claremont Farm)
75g of Cornflakes
12 chocolate Mini Eggs (for a little treat!)
- Line a 12-hole cake tin with paper cases – perhaps you could use some spring-time patterned cases to really get in the mood.
- Melt the honey, chocolate and butter into a bowl over a pan of simmering water and stir the mixture until it’s smooth and sticky.
- Remove the heat and add in the Cornflakes. Stir until everything’s combined.
- Place an even amount of the mixture into each of the paper cases, and then place a Mini Egg into the middle of each one.
- Leave the tin in the fridge to chill for about 1 hour, or until the mixture looks like it’s set.
- Dig in!
