How to Make Rice Krispies Nest Cakes

Rice Krispies Nest Cakes are fun and easy to make, and great for Easter! Children and adults all over the world will love these deliciously wonderful cakes!


  • Sweets and hundreds and thousands for decorations.
  • Cadbury's Dairy Milk Chocolate
  • Rice Krispies or Cornflakes


  1. 1
    Prepare your supplies. Get out a jug, a mixing bowl, bun cases, bun-case trays and put the cooker on. Put the jug on the cooker to warm.
  2. 2
    Get your chocolate ready. Scrape together as many bars of Cadbury's Dairy Milk Chocolate as possible and break them all into little squares. Drop all the little squares into the bowl, and get out a metal spoon. Start mixing. Wait until all the chocolate has melted before proceeding to the next step.
  3. 3
    Get a cereal box out of your cupboard - Rice Krispies (though cornflakes work too). Pour as many as you need into your big mixing bowl.
  4. 4
    Switch off the cooker and pour all the melted chocolate into the same mixing bowl as the Rice Krispies/cornflakes. Get a wooden spoon and stir all the chocolate into the Rice Krispies (or cornflakes). Stir until every last little piece of cereal is coated in a thick layer of rich, creamy chocolate.
  5. 5
    Scoop your mixture. For this, get two clean metal teaspoons. Fill the bun-case trays with bun-cases, and use one metal teaspoon to scoop the chocolatey Rice Krispies or Cornflakes onto the spoon. Use the other metal teaspoon to scrape them into the bun-cases.
  6. 6
    Decorate. When each bun-case is full, you can get creative! You can use chocolate buttons, mini eggs, nuts, gummy mix - anything! - to decorate your Rice Krispie or Cornflake cakes! If you want an Easter look, use three mini eggs to make it look like eggs waiting to hatch, or you could perch an Easter chocolate bunny on top! Just be creative, artistic and let your imagination flow!
  7. 7
    Eat these deliciously creamy, rich, sweet cakes and savour them! Enjoy eating your cakes!


  • Eat the cakes when they are warm for extra goodness.
  • Only use one type of sweeties on top of the cakes.


  • These cakes are especially great for little children to make, but you've got to be careful that they don't touch the hot cooker! Ask or fetch an adult to do melt the chocolate for you.
