Supersize a classic Easter treat with this giant chocolate Easter nest. Coat cereal in an indulgent combination of milk and dark chocolate, then decorate with mini eggs, fruit and a whole Easter egg showstopper. We've used shredded wheat for the base, but you can use any cereal you have - cornflakes would be great. See method
