Easter Nests (Cornflake Cakes)

When I was a kid and saw my mum get the chocolate and cornflakes out the cupboard, I knew it could only mean one thing…Cornflake cakes. I love these so much…chocolate on cereal is a good cake in my opinion. I love that the crunchiness of the cornflakes is still there.

This is a super simple recipe and a good recipe for children to do as you can melt the ingredient in the microwave to make it safe for children.

You could add different ‘mini’ eggs on these. I think this is also a good recipe for after Easter because it can help use up any leftover chocolate (well maybe!)

Everyone enjoyed these and I’ll admit I had three of these which is unusual because normally when I bake, I always seem to not end up having a bit of whatever I made.
