At Easter time, most people start thinking about chocolate, us included. In the past we have made the traditional Easter chocolate nests but that involves buying a big box of Shredded Wheats and we don't really buy boxed cereal so we end up using a few of the biscuits from the box and the rest of the cereal is wasted so this year I was determined to try something different and a little bit healthier.
