Ingredients:

  • 4 Weet-Bix, crushed
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, lightly toasted
  • 180 g dark chocolate, melted
  • Fresh blueberries, mini chocolate eggs, or toasted almonds

Method:

  1. Line 24 holes of a mini-muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Combine Weet-Bix and coconut in a large bowl, and mix well. Add melted chocolate and stir to evenly coat.
  3. Scoop tablespoons of the chocolate mixture into the prepared tin. Use a small spoon to create a nest-shape – pressing mixture up the edges, and making an indent in the centre.
  4. Refrigerate until set. To serve, remove chocolate nests from tin and fill with blueberry, chocolate, or almond ‘eggs’.

Tips:

  • Nests can also be formed on a baking paper lined tray, if preferred. Divide mixture into mounds and use a small spoon to form shallow nests.
  • When melting chocolate, cease heating when a few pieces of un-melted chocolate remain – then stir until fully melted and smooth. This step will help the chocolate to temper and set at room temperature. However, if nests don’t firm-up on their own after 5 - 10 minutes, transfer to refrigerator.
