Chocolate Coconut Nests (muffin/cupcake toppers)


These are seriously easy and look great. Use your fave chocolate muffin or cupcake recipe, ice them and top with a chocolate nest for a sweet Easter treat.

INGREDIENTS
200g chocolate melts
50g shredded coconut
coloured candy-coated Easter eggs

METHOD
Melt the chocolate melt in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Set aside to cool slightly.

Add the coconut and stir to combine.

On a large sheet of baking paper, create chocolate nests about 4cm in diameter.

Use the back of a metal spoon to make a dent in the center of each nest where the eggs will sit.

Fill nests with 3 eggs. Cool completely and refrigerate until firm.

Place nests on top of iced muffins or cupcakes.

What a great idea to use them as cupcake toppers.

I have never thought to use coconut for them. When I make Chocolate nests I have always used crunchy noodles.

Thanks for linking up to the ASWC Together Linky party again Fay x
