Did you ever have chocolate crackles as a kid? Well these Chocolate Coconut Nests are a a fantastic cane sugar and dairy free (minus the mini eggs) alternative. Perfect for easter and a great one to make with the kids as it’s super simple and fun.

1 1/2 cup corn flakes / bran flakes / rice puffs
1 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup Pureharvest Rice Malt Syrup 1/4 cup organic cacao

Place the gluten free flakes or puffed rice and desiccated coconut into a large bowl and combine.

In a saucepan, combine the coconut oil and Rice Malt Syrup. On a low heat, stir until the oil melts and it's completely mixed with the Rice Malt Syrup. Remove from heat and stir in the cacao powder.

Pour the cacao mix over the dry ingredients and stir well to coat. Spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases, gently press down the centre to create an indent. Top with some little easter eggs of your choice and place in the fridge to set.

Will keep in the fridge for up to a week. This is such a great recipe to make with the kids - they’ll love making AND eating it.
