Vegan chocolate nests recipe for Easter - these homemade chocolate nests are dairy free and free from refined sugar for a healthy Easter treat for kids!
Start by laying out 10 silicone cups onto a small oven tray. Check that the oven tray will fit into your fridge or freezer, as the nests will need to be chilled once assembled.
Crumble up the shredded wheat into a bowl, breaking up any large chunks with a spoon if necessary.
Measure out the coconut oil and drop into a separate large heat-proof bowl. Pop into the microwave and heat at short 10-15 second intervals, stirring in between, until the oil has completely melted and is clear.
Add the cocoa powder, maple syrup and vanilla essence. Quickly stir until fully combined and smooth.
Tip the shredded wheat into the bowl of melted chocolate and stir until completely coated.
Note: Store your chocolate nests in the fridge until ready to eat as after a while in a warm room the chocolate will melt and get quite soft.
