Prepared with healthy shredded wheat, so there's no need to feel guilty about eating the chocolate! Chocolate Easter Egg Nests are a no-bake confection that takes less than 10 minutes of your time, and are totally fun to make and even more fun to eat.
Start by crumbling the shredded wheat so that it looks like pieces of dried grass. Do this in a large, deep bowl to avoid getting cereal everywhere! Set aside. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside as well.
Next, add the chocolate to a microwave-safe bowl. Add in the coconut oil. Microwave on high for 10 second increments. Stir between each increment.
Once the chocolate is completely melted and smooth, pour it over the prepared shredded wheat. Use a rubber spatula to stir the chocolate through the wheat until fully coated.
Using a spring-loaded ice cream scoop to portion the mixture, scoop mounds onto the prepared baking sheet. Use your hands to gently form the mixture into the shape of a birds next, complete with a bowl-shape in the center.
Immediately push three M&M Easter candy into each nest.
