Easter Mars Bar Cakes - The Project Lifestyle

A long weekend to celebrate Easter and the first sights of spring; what better way to celebrate than by making these quick, easy and tasty Easter treats!

Many chocolate easter nests just use melted chocolate and cereal but I decided to make these that extra bit special by using mars bars, giving extra caramel and nougat flavours!

Ingredients (Makes approx. 24 chocolate nests):

250g Shredded Wheat
8 Mars bars
200g Milk chocolate
2 Tbs Golden Syrup
150g Butter
2 Packets of Mini Eggs / chocolate eggs


  1. Chop up the Mars bars into small chunks and place in a glass bowl with the butter, syrup and milk chocolate.
  2. Place the bowl of ingredients over a pan of boiling water, stirring the ingredients as they melt.
  3. Keep the pan over the heat until the ingredients are fully melted into a smooth liquid – it might take a while for the nougat from the Mars bars to melt down but stirring will speed up the process.
  4. Once all of the ingredients are melted, take the bowl off the heat and add the Shredded Wheat by crumbling it into the bowl.
  5. Stir until all of the cereal is coated in the chocolate mixture then spoon into paper cases (trying to make it look like a bird’s nest).
  6. Add mini eggs to the centre of your cake and put them in the fridge to set for a couple of hours before eating!

Super quick, super easy and super tasty! Hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend!
