These are really simple, easy and quick to do. With a little supervision, these are great to do with toddlers too.

Last year I wedged a name card between the two eggs in the nest for Easter Sunday lunch place settings and they served as lovely table decoration tooas well as  an after desert snack.

Makes 10 – 20, takes about 10 minutes


  • 1 milk/dark chocolate slab
  • 1 plain chocolate slab
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 cups crushed corn flakes
  • 1 bag mini eggs


  • Melt chocolate bar a over low heat.
  • Add coconut and cornflakes.
  • Stir until coconut and cornflakes are covered with chocolate.
  • Drop mixture by tablespoons onto wax paper.
  • Shape each tablespoon of mixture into a nest.
  • Make an indentation in the middle of the nest.
  • Place 2 or 3 mini eggs in each nest.
  • Place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

Thank you Andrea for sending me this picture of Neil making Easter Egg Nests! Here’s what Andrea had to say:

Thank you for reminding me about this fun craft! I used to do it all the time with my class but kind of forgot about it! Neil had a blast and they were a big hit at dinner! We added 1 organic bunny cookie to each nest! Andrea
