Recipe | Chocolate Fudge Easter Nests


I can't believe it's nearly Easter! I've always loved Easter, anything with chocolate and I'm there! I love how many treats there are these days, so many eggs! It's my birthday around Easter too so that's another bonus! So I've decided to do 3 Easter themed recipes this year, don't forget to check out my Easter Bark recipe! As you can probably tell this recipe is for Chocolate Fudge Easter Nests! I wanted an excuse to use my new cake stand! I'm obsessed with the new Galaxy Golden Eggs but Mini Eggs would be just as cute! I think the Flake around the outside really makes it look like a nest!


Makes 12 Cupcakes -

Ingredients - 

For the sponge - 

140g soft butter
140g golden caster sugar
3 medium eggs
100g self-raising flour
25g cocoa powder, sifted

For the frosting - 

100g milk chocolate, broken
85g soft butter
140g icing sugar, sifted
1 Pack of Galaxy Golden Eggs (or Mini Eggs!)
2 Flakes, broken  

Method -

1. Pre-heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5 and put 16 cases into a fairy-cake tin. 

2. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy, add in the eggs mixing after each addition. Stir in the flour and cocoa powder and mix until combined. 

3. Divide between the cases so they are two-thirds filled, then bake for 12-15 mins until risen. Cool on a wire rack.

4. For the frosting, microwave the chocolate for 1 minute. Cream the butter and icing sugar together, then beat in the melted chocolate. Spread on the cakes and decorate with the broken Flake around the outside and eggs in the middle.
