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.
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
