Just in case you haven’t heard Comic Relief are back this year on March 13th and there are SO many ways to get involved! I have already joined in with TeamHonk and will be taking part in the Danceathon at Wembley on March 8th, but in the meantime I am practicing my dance moves whilst getting messy in the kitchen!
HomeSense are a proud partner of Comic Relief and have some awesome merchandise for us to buy to a) not only look stylish whilst cooking but b) to raise some dough for the great causes that Comic Relief support.
I am loving my Henry Holland apron, so much so that I decided to get messy in the kitchen making one of Team Lloyd’s favourite recipes. Chocolate Nests or in today’s case (Red Nose) Faces. To join in with supporting Comic Relief and purchase your own kitchen accessories get yourself down to your nearest HomeSense or they are available online too!
B Lloyd loves making (and eating!) these chocolate nests. The shredded wheat gives them a munch (see what I did there?!) nicer texture than cornflakes and makes them easier to eat. Plus they are easy to make, I have even known B Lloyd manage to help make these with her arm in cast!
Prep Time: 10m Cook Time: 10m
Ingredients: 200g Chocolate (I insist on using Galaxy)
85g Shredded Wheat (about 4 large bars)
200g Smarties / Red Noses
Crush the shredded wheat into fine pieces in a large mixing bowl.
Break the chocolate into small chunks and place in a small bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir until melted.
Pour the melted chocolate over the crushed shredded wheat and stir well. Make sure all the shredded wheat is covered in delicious chocolate.
Spoon the chocolate wheat into circles and use a glass to make the edges smooth. Place 2 same colour smarties on their edge for eyes and 1 red nose (smartie) in the middle of each nest. Make sure you push them in a bit so they stick to the chocolate, but not too much as to jeopardise the structural integrity of your nests. You don’t want a crumbly nest!
Chill the nests in the fridge for about 2 hours until set. Whilst they’re chilling, lick the spoon. Wearing your red nose is optional.
NB: I have been provided with a Henry Holland apron for this post. I am using the fee for this post to kickstart my fundraising for Wembley.
