Easter Chocolate Nests

With Easter approaching, here is an easy way to add a little extra goodness to chocolate with a fun twist. Perfect for entertaining the kids over the holidays whilst getting a little added fibre into the diet.

Makes 12


  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 80g dried fruits (I’ve used dried cherries)
  • 225g bran cereal sticks
  • 12 mini eggs


  • Melt the dark chocolate over a bain-marie. Add the olive oil, dried fruits and bran cereal and mix till evenly distributed.
  • Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions in cupcake cases. Add a mini egg on the top of each nest.
  • Allow to set completely (option to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes if you can’t wait) before enjoying.
