Vegan Chocolate Easter Nests w/ Peanut Butter Fudge Eggs

Friday, 14 April 2017

Ah Easter, a time of frustration and dissapointment for most vegans, being surrounded by things we can't eat can be quite deflating. But hopefully this recipe will add a little something more to your Easter Sunday! Whilst going through a particularly bad bought of productive procrastination when I was avoiding writing, I decided to spontaneaously make some Easter treats that are both vegan friendly and incredibly delicious if I do say so myself. This recipe is honestly so easy and is just another take on the classic chocolate nest recipe with just a little bit more flavour and much more peanut butter:

You will need:_____________________________________________________________________

1 Bar of Dark Chocolate (I used Bourneville but any will do)
4 cups of  crushed shredded wheat (It's better to buy the whole ones but my supermarket didn't stock them on that day so I had to buy mini ones, typical)
½ cup of Peanut Butter
½ cup of  icing sugar 
Mixed dried fruit (If you please)
1 tbsp of Golden Syrup (If you please)
Cupcake Cases (Important)


This recipe is so easy a child could do it (if you like that kind of thing).

1- Break up all the chocolate and pop it into a glass bowl, heat said glass bowl over a pan of boiling water until the chocolate is fully melted. 
2- This is where, if you wish to be a little bit more unhealthy you could add your tbps of golden syrup, this would work especially well if you've gone for 70% dark chocolate or something much more bitter than Bourneville. 
3- Pop the shredded wheat into a bag and mash the shit out of it until it's just litlle crumbly bits.
4- Add the crumbly bits to your melted chocolate and mix tenderly. 
5- Put mixture into cupcake cases and pop in the fridge to cool.
6- Lick bowl clean (this is pivotal for the recipe, you must do this) 
7- Add the peanut butter and icing sugar into a bowl and mix gently until the mixture is stiff(ey up). 
8- Take bits of the mixture and roll it into an egg-like shape.
9- After you have done this with all the mixture, add the eggs to the now cooled nests. I would say about 3 eggs to one nest, but it's up to you. 
10- Add your dried fruit and a sprinkling of icing sugar and pop in the fridge until the eggs are more solid and enjoy!

I think this recipe is well tasty and adds a little something to a classicly quite bland Easter treat, especially for vegans. The peanut butter 'fudge' is honestly so delicious and I've started making it just on its own and keeping it in the fridge for a snack. I hope you enjoy this recipe and please let me know if you try it!

What's your favourite vegan Easter treat?
