  • 4 Mars bars, chopped

  1. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Melt the Mars bars and butter in a large pan over a gentle heat, stir until smooth. Mix in the shredded wheat until completely covered in the chocolate mixture.
  2. Put spoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking tray and make a slight dip in the centre to create a nest. Fill with the chocolate eggs. Leave to set until ready to eat.
