All children love making these ever so easy chocolate cornflake nests, which are made by just melting chocolate, butter and syrup together, but watch out as the grown ups love eating them too, so it’s a good idea to make plenty! These little nests make great gifts for the children’s teachers and are perfect for kid’s parties at any time of the year- just decorated with sugar sprinkles. You can even press the mixture into one large round tin and then top with marshmallows and a few candles for a bigger birthday cake. This is one recipe that you can happily let the children make by themselves- but be prepared for lots of messy hands and faces!


  • 100g milk chocolate
  • 50g butter
  • 2tbsp golden syrup
  • 100g cornflakes
  • Mini sugar coated Easter eggs

That’s goodtoknow

You can use any cereal you like to make these rice Krispies and chopped shredded wheat biscuits are both good.


  1. Break up the chocolate into squares and place in a plastic or glass microwave proof mixing bowl with the butter and syrup and heat in the microwave on 30 second bursts until melted, then stir until smooth (or place in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water until everything is melted and smooth).
  2. Add the cornflakes and stir with a spoon until they are well coated in chocolate.
  3. Place 12 paper cupcake cases in a bun tin and spoon the mixture into the cases. Place in the fridge to set for 30 mins. Decorate with sugar eggs
