Easter bunnies

April 5, 2012

Before Arlo went off on his travels to Southampton he made some Easter nests. We do this every year and send them to relatives – whether they want them or not!. It’s very easy and the result looks very nest like, especially if you add a little yellow chick.

Just bash some shredded wheat up, melt some chocolate and then mix the two together.  Form into nest shapes and let it set. When they’re set add Easter eggs. Or eggs and rabbits in our case. (Not to scale which can look a bit odd)

A few years ago I bought some chocolate rabbits from Lidl.  I don’t remember what the chocolate was like, but the rabbits came in a rabbbit shaped  packet perfect for using as a chocolate mould.  We have used it each year since to make our own rabbits. Sometimes we add interesting things to the chocolate like chilli flakes or coffee grounds (one year we powdered freeze dried strawberries, but they didn’t set too well). Each time we pour the chocolate in I’m a bit worried that the delicate plastic will break, but so far so good.

By the time Arlo comes home I’ll have made a whole warren. I might have eaten them all too.
