  1. 100g butter, cubed
  2. 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  3. 50g milk chocolate buttons
  4. 75g golden syrup
  5. 4 Shredded Wheat
  6. 36 mini chocolate eggs


  1. 1. Put the butter into a medium bowl, then add the cocoa powder, chocolate buttons and golden syrup. Microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds, or until melted, then stir to mix everything together.
  2. 2. Hold 1 Shredded Wheat over the bowl and squeeze in your hand to crumble it in. Repeat with the other 3 Shredded Wheat. Stir to mix evenly.
  3. 3. Line the patty tin with 12 paper cake cases and put a generous tablespoonful of mixture into each of the paper cases. Press the centre of each nest with your fingers to make a slight dip, then arrange 3 mini chocolate eggs in each of the dips. Chill for 30 minutes before eating.
