My little boys LOVE Easter. And thinking back it is definitely something that I have strong memories of as a child. In this post I am sharing an Easter activity that you can do with your kids. Creating these Easter Nests is super easy and really quite fun. I loved it and I know it is something they will remember creating. Oh, and it didn’t take very long!


Create some of these best Easter Nests and you can turn basic cupcakes into a great Easter treat, that your kids will love to help create and eat.

What is great about this recipe is that if you use gluten free products it will be a gluten free product. Make some gluten free cupcakes or gluten free muffins and bung these nests on top.

When I made these nests, I used Whittakers Dark Chocolate, with 5o % cocoa solids. I also used a mixture of muesli and All Bran, in mine. Almost healthy?

You don’t want eggs for the nest to be wrapped in tinfoil. I am a fan of the little speckled Easter eggs generally as I think they are very cute. I couldn’t find the brand I wanted so I ended up with speckled eggs from MnM‘s, and they were totally great.

You may like to make small ones in our Munch Food Trays below.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 20
  • 200 gm chocolate (I used Whittakers Dark Chocolate)
  • 1-2 cups of mixed cereals (eg All Bran, Cornflakes or muesli)
  • 30 g pretzel sticks rougly broken
  • 1 x bag of small eggs (not wrapped in foil)
  1. Slowly melt chocolate over a double boiler.
  2. Line a tray or even your bench with baking paper
  3. When it is all melted stir in the pretzels and most of the cereal.
  4. Stir gently till it is all combined. If you think the mixture could take a bit more cereal, then add it in.
  5. Drop small spoonfuls onto your baking tray, shaping roughly into a nest shape.
  6. Add an egg or two on top and then let it set. You can put it in the fridge to speed things up.
