All children love making these ever so easy chocolate cornflake nests, which are made by just melting chocolate, butter and syrup together, but watch out as the grown ups love eating them too, so itís a good idea to make plenty! These little nests make great gifts for the childrenís teachers and are perfect for kidís parties at any time of the year- just decorated with sugar sprinkles. You can even press the mixture into one large round tin and then top with marshmallows and a few candles for a bigger birthday cake. This is one recipe that you can happily let the children make by themselves- but be prepared for lots of messy hands and faces!
