Chocolate nest recipe and other sweet ideas for Easter

As Easter approaches, here’s a recipe that’s as charming as it is delicious: chocolate Easter nests decorated with mini Cadbury eggs.

Easter is a great time to get creative with chocolate desserts and decorations.

This easy-to-make recipe is the perfect example, and a great opportunity to bring the family together around a fun activity.

Easter chocolate nests: simple and fun to make

Easter chocolate nest recipe

To make this recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Rice Kirspie-type cereal,
  • baking chocolate
  • Cadbury mini eggs

Muffin tins are ideal for shaping the nests, but if you don’t have any, just use small bowls.

White or milk chocolate? You’re free to use whichever variety of chocolate you prefer.

In my case, I made these Easter nests with white chocolate, because they’re for a little boy who only likes white chocolate, but they could also be made with milk chocolate.

However, I have to say that I was pleased with the color.

Chocolate Easter nest

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Additional Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 20 minutes


  • ½ cup of white (or milk) chocolate
  • 1 ½ cup of Rice Krispies (enough to make a good texture)
  • Mini chocolate eggs (like Cadbury's)


  1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
  2. Toss the Rice Krispies into the chocolate mixture.
  3. Pour some of the mixture into a muffin tin, along with the paper tins (see note 1).
  4. Give the mixture a nest shape, leaving a small space in the middle of the "nests" to place the chocolate eggs.
  5. Place 4-5 chocolate eggs per nest, in the center.
  6. Leave to refrigerate for about 2 hours.


Note 1: Since I didn't have a muffin pan, I used small bowls.
