Easter Nests

Easter Nests

These 4-ingredient chocolate nests are super cute and the perfect Easter treat. They are based on quinoa puffs, which are sold as a protein rich alternative to puffed rice and made by gently heating quinoa seeds, to create a slightly chewy texture with subtle nutty flavour which pairs well with the homemade chocolate sauce. What's more, these adorable nests are so simple to make which means that they're a good rainy day activity to make with children.

Three great health benefits: good source of plant-based protein, boosts mood, anti-inflammatory

Makes 16
Keep refrigerated in an airtight container

3 cups quinoa puffs
1/3 cup cacao powder
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup maple syrup

1) Line a cupcake tin with paper cases.
2) Melt together the cacao powder, coconut oil and maple syrup over a medium low heat in a large saucepan, stirring regularly. Set aside to cool slightly & thicken but not set.
3) Stir in the quinoa puffs, ensuring they are evenly covered with the chocolate sauce.
4) Spoon the mixture into the lined cupcake tins, dividing it equally between the cases. Use the spoon to create a "well" in the middle of each nest. Refrigerate for at least one hour to set then fill the nests with decorations of your choice.
