Chocolate Rice Krispie Easter Egg Nests that the whole family can enjoy. Lower in syns but still delicious.
My kids love to make Chocolate Rice Krispie Easter Egg Nests at Easter time, but when you add up all the chocolate and little mini eggs on top, it can be quite a lot of syns, so I came up with a lower synned version that I can make alongside the kids to enjoy too.
Best part of all is that these are only 3 syns each, meaning you could enjoy 1 or 2 or more of these Chocolate Rice Krispie Easter Egg Nests and still be within your daily syn allowance.
If you want to reduce the syns even further, then you can just add one nest to the egg, but one little egg in a nest, would look very lonely don't you think?
The key to keeping these Chocolate Rice Krispie Easter Egg Nests low synned is the chocolate coating. I first tried these with melted chocolate, but you just are not going to get enough chocolate to coat them, while still keeping the syns low. So not being one to be defeated, I had another idea for creating the chocolate coating and oh my it totally worked. These are so chocolatey and delicious.
When I put the plate in front of the family to try (they have to give their seal of approval for my recipes), they were demolished in seconds and I was requested to make a second batch.
When forming the nests, I recommend using a little square of parchment to place over the Chocolate Rice Krispie Easter Egg Nests to push down in the muffin tray, as it can be quite sticky otherwise. Once I make them all up. I just pop the tray into the freezer for at least 1 hour, and then they are all set to enjoy!!
Perfect to make for Easter or if you have a group taster coming up, your group is going to love these.

Syn value of cocoa powder can vary from brand to brand. The three brands I use are 100% cocoa powder (not Dutch Processed) and are 1 tbs for 20 calories (1 syn).
You should always double check the syn values of items which are synned, as brands can differ.
