White chocolate and coconut Easter nests

(Makes 12) 


  • 200g White chocolate, broken into small pieces

  • 40g Coconut oil

  • 45g Shredded wheat breakfast cereal

  • 50g Desiccated coconut

  • 50g Coconut flakes

  • Pinch of salt

  • Mini chocolate Easter eggs 



  1. Line a fairy cake tin with 12 fairy cake cases (cupcake or muffin cases work here too!)

  2. Place the white chocolate, coconut oil and salt in a saucepan over a very low heat. Stir the chocolate regularly until it’s all melted together (to avoid it burning). Alternatively put them into a heatproof bowl and microwave, 30 seconds at a time and stirring regularly, until they’ve all melted together.

  3. In a separate bowl crush the shredded wheat into a hay-like rubble. Stir the coconut flakes and desiccated coconut into the shredded wheat. Tip this rubble into the pan of melted chocolate and stir thoroughly together, make sure it’s all coated in chocolate!

  4. Using two dessert spoons, fill each of the cake cases with a mound of the chocolate mixture. Use a teaspoon to press each one down and make a well in the middle of each mound. Fill the well with chocolate eggs and leave to set in the fridge for 30 minutes-1 hour.

A Note on Gift Vouchers

Our cafes and bakeries provide vital income to support our charitable training programmes, and provide employment opportunities for our graduates. Given the need to close, our business currently has no income.  We have been overwhelmed by the generosity we have received, this, together with the Government support schemes, will help to ensure we come through to the other side to continue the important work Luminary does.

A key way that you can support our business during these challenging times is to buy a cake or afternoon tea for you to enjoy when this is all over!
