Method

  1. 1. Bring butter, sugar and honey to the boil in a saucepan over a moderate heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Pour mixture over the combined popcorn and nuts and mix gently but thoroughly. Spoon the mixture into paper case-lined muffin trays and make a small well in the centre, to resemble a nest.
  2. 2. Bake at 150⁰C for 10 minutes or until golden. Cool before placing chocolate eggs in the centre of each and storing in an airtight container until required.

Tips / Handy Hints

A little salt may be added to the honey mixture for a sweet and salty flavour! 1/4 cup popcorn kernels yields 4 cups popped corn. Simply follow instructions on the back of the pack to cook. Nests can also be filled with speckled candy coated Easter eggs, which are available in supermarkets.
