Chocolate Crispie Cakes are an absolute Must Do at Easter – if you don’t do anything else, make these! I know they’re simple and I’m probably telling you something you already know, but these are here for my children and for all those young people out there stepping out into the world who DON’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE A CRISPIE CAKE! Boy Two will shortly be heading off to Uni and he will need an armoury of useful recipes to hand, if you are about to fly the nest you need to know how to actually make nests don’t you?!

Chocolate Crispie Cakes, Easy Easter Nests to make with kids or just for you!

When I was at Uni my Mum’s friend used to send me food parcels which always contained a great big block of chocolate crispie cake – it made me VERY popular in Halls – imagine how much more popular I would have been if I had been able to whip up a batch at the drop of a hat!

These chocolate crispie cakes are for Easter so they need some mini eggs nestling on the nest and some little chicks making encouraging cheeps to encourage their fellows out of their eggs – or singing little Easter songs with their tiny beaks.
