Chocolate Nests 03.04.2012

This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". I originally posted this content on my old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". I thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so I'm recycling the content from my old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.


Chocolate Nests

Dennis left this morning on his next cruise ship contract, so I'm home alone once again.
All is fine and dandy though, as we will be able to speak most days and I'll get see him in a months time.
He has promised to keep in touch with all of you, by writing blog post and updates when possible. Until then, I'm afraid your stuck with me! :-)
What with it being Easter week, I couldn't help but get caught up in the happy Spring time feel and make something a little Easter flare!
In the parcel mum sent me a couple of weeks ago, was a scrummy packet of chocolate mini eggs.
I thought I would put the chocolate eggs to use by recreating the corn flake cakes, that would so often make an appearance at school bake sales.
They are so easy to make, it literally took 2 minutes! I just needed some cornflakes:

And the 'oh so' bright and festive chocolate mini eggs!

I think these eggs are so cute, all speckly and perfect.

All that was required was to melt the chocolate and mix in the cornflakes. SIMPLE!
I then spooned the chocolate cornflake mixture into some cupcake cases, then added the mini eggs for decoration.
I popped the cakes in the refrigerator. Ten minutes later the were all set and ready to devour!

I can so see why these little treats were so popular at school. Not only are they inexpensive and extremely quick to make, the are also completely and utterly adorable!
Perfect Easter nests! YUMYUMYUM!!!


I have a night off from work and these chocolate nests are just the start of the many mighty plans I have for my free evening.
First I'm going to enjoy a hot cup of coffee with one of these yummy chocolate nests.

My ipad is at the ready, so I can reread some of your fabulous entries for our Y.A.R.N giveaway.
I can already tell you that Dennis and I are going to have a pretty hard time choosing winners! Your entries are so INSANELY GOOD!!!!
I'm then going to work on my German school work. I'm making the most of the quiet apartment, plus the fact that I'm not feeling so tired today.
I'm hoping to end the evening by finishing off the pegs I started last month. I really cant wait to share what I've done with them!! I'll leave you with a little sneak peak of my mini pegs! I'm awfully proud of them!!!

I hope you are all having a lovely evening and a great start to the week!
