Easter Chocolate Nests Recipe

Easter chocolate nest recipe

These little nests are really easy to make and a lot of fun. And it’s quite easy to get a good looking result.

In order to make them, you’ll need Rice Krispies-type cereals, chocolate and chocolate eggs. The best way to shape the nests is to use muffin tins, but if you don’t have them, just use small bowls.

I made these Easter nests with white chocolate, because they were for a little boy who only likes white chocolate, but you could also be use milk or dark 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.
