Shredded Wheat Easter Chocolate Nests

Easter Nests are classic treat for Spring and the best thing about them is how easy they are to make, perfect recipe to involve your kids in the kitchen. I am using Shredded Wheat instead of Rice Krispies or Corn Flakes.

It is such a great fun to make with kids and decorated with mini chocolate eggs. The kids are going to love making these tasty and healthy treats for Easter every year.
