  • 100g Essential Malted Wheats
  • 180g Cooks' Ingredients Belgian Milk Chocolate
  • 25g Essential Salted Dairy Butter
  • 80g pack Cadbury Mini Eggs (about 18 eggs)


  1. Crush the malted wheats into a large bowl. Finely chop the chocolate, then melt gently in a bowl with the butter over a pan of just-simmering water (or in short bursts in the microwave, stirring in between).

  2. Pour over the malted wheats and mix well until evenly coated. Line 6 holes of a fairy cake tin with paper cases.

  3. Using spoons or an ice-cream scop, spoon into the cases in the prepared tray. Make an indentation in the middle of each one. Add about 3 mini eggs per nest, then chill in the fridge until set.
