Chocolate hazelnut bird nests recipe
what you'll need
- 8 cups cereal
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1 cup chocolate hazelnut spread
- 36 mini chocolate eggs
let's do it
- Place the cereal in a large mixing bowl and set aside.
- Add the sugar and corn syrup to a medium saucepan and place over medium heat.
- Stir constantly until the mixture comes to a full rolling boil. Remove from heat
- Add chocolate hazelnut spread and carefully stir to combine.
- Pour the hot mixture over the cereal and mix until each piece of cereal is evenly coated.
- Allow a few minutes for the mixture to cool enough to handle, then use lightly greased hands to mold about ¼ cup of the mixture into a nest shape.
- Place the nests on a sheet of waxed paper to harden. (Re-form the nests if they become misshapen as they cool.)
- Place a few mini chocolate eggs into the cooled nests and enjoy!
