Happy Easter everyone!
Today I thought I’d share a well loved family recipe with you all. I grew up with my Mum making these year round, however every Easter she would add Mini Eggs to transform them into little nests. So cute!
There is no baking required so they are very easy to make.
Here is what you need…
6 tbsp Cocoa Powder
½ Cup Butter
½ Cup Milk
1½ Cups Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence
3 Cups Rolled Oats
1 Cup Desiccated Coconut
Boil the first 4 ingredients in a pot for around 2 minutes until well combined.
Remove from the heat and add in the vanilla.
Add in the oatmeal and coconut and mix well.
Lay out a sheet of wax proof paper, and then drop tsp of the mixture onto the sheet.
Press two or three Mini Eggs into the nests.
Leave to cool over night, or transfer them to the fridge if you want them to set more quickly.
Hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend! X
