Easter baskets with chocolate eggs

The recipe for Easter nests with chocolate eggs is really easy to prepare. Watch the VIDEO RECIPE on my YouTube channel with the whole process.

First of all, you have to toast the almonds over low heat for a few minutes. When the almonds become slightly shiny, will be ready. Let them cool completely and cut them into slices with a knife.

Melt the chocolate in the cuff in a double boiler.

Place the cereals in two bowls (You can also mix them and use just one bowl), I used puffed spelt and whole grain flakes. Add the sliced almonds. Add the melted chocolate and mix thoroughly. The cereals should be evenly covered with melted chocolate.

Place the paper cups in the muffin tin and divide the cereal and chocolate mixture inside the cups. Using a spoon or spatula, spread the mixture inside the cups so that the sides are also covered, as you see in VIDEO RECIPE. Do not worry, You don't have to make an even edge: The Nests, however, they're not. Indeed, The protrusions and small imperfections make everything more beautiful and lifelike.

Place the mold in the refrigerator and allow to cool for at least 3 hours or until completely firm. Chocolate will act as a glue between the cereals. Once cold, Remove the cups from the mould and then, gently, Detach the chocolate and cereal nests from the paper cups.

Whip the cream with the powdered sugar and Bourbon vanilla. You don't have to overmount it, because otherwise it will be too greasy: You have to get a soft cream and not when stiff. With the help of a pastry bag, Fill each Easter nest with a little cream and sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon or bitter cocoa. Place 2 or 3 chocolate eggs on top of each nest. You can serve Easter nests with chocolate eggs immediately or store them in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Bon appétit!
