Raw Cacao Nest March 29 2015 by Simone Denny

This is a great recipe for Easter or can made at any time of the year. It is a great activity to do with kids. 

The recipe is one I have adapted from a kids art and craft book....and have made it a bit healthier. 


healthier alternative to chocolate



2/3 Cup of Raw Cacao

75g of shredded wheat (one sachet/packet)

3 Tablespoons of coconut oil (melted) 

1/2 Cup of Maple Syrup or Rice Syrup

Optional extra:  2 Tablespoons of shredded coconut

Tinfoil or baking paper



Scrunch up the shredded wheat into a bowl (add coconut if using). Combine melted coconut oil, maple syrup and raw cacao and pour it over the shredded wheat.

Line a medium sized bowl (like a dessert bowl) with tinfoil or baking paper (you should have enough mixture to make a small bowl as well).

Press the cacao mixture around the side of the bowl until it forms a nest (make a second nest with the remaining mixture)

Refrigerate for an hour or until next is completely set.

Remove from the fridge and remove the nest from the bowl and foil/paper.

Serve with Coconut Goji and Lime Bliss Balls (eggs)

Store in the fridge
