Easter Ice Cream Nests

Easter Ice Cream Nests

This is the perfect child-friendly dessert.  It’s guaranteed to be a hit!

Ingredients

20 milk chocolate mini-eggs unwrapped
½ cup miniature marshmallows
1 tablespoon
Light corn syrup
1 tablespoon butter
1 ½ cups corn flakes (crushed)
Vanilla ice cream
Chocolate syrup for topping

Method

Lightly grease 6 muffin cups and set aside.  Microwave 12 of the 18 chocolate eggs (make sure they’re uncovered) in a microwave-safe bowl for about 1 minute (or a little less) and stir.  If they are not fully melted microwave for another 10 seconds.

Combine the butter, corn syrup and marshmallows in another bowl and microwave for about 15 seconds, stir until melted and add the melted chocolate and cereal to it.  Mix the mixture well. 

Press the mixture into the bottom and sides of the muffin cups to form a “nest” shape.  Refrigerate for approximately 1 hour.  Remove the nests from the muffin cups very carefully and let stand at room temperate for approximately 15 minutes.

Place a small scoop of vanilla ice cream inside each nest, top with another unwrapped chocolate egg and drizzle with chocolate syrup.
