Easter baskets

In addition to colorful Easter eggs, Easter lambs and yeast plaits, these delicious Easter nests should not be missing. They are super quick and easy to make and are a real eye-catcher. A hearty snack or even as a dessert. And as always: many opportunities to create your own creation.


  • 6-8 muffin cups
  • 1 tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon agave syrup or melted white chocolate
  • 2 tbsp nut butter (here peanut butter)
  • 5 tbsp puffed amaranth *
  • 5 tbsp spelled pops *
  • 1 tbsp (white) chocolate
  • colorful chocolate peanuts or similar
  • optional: a few drops of vanilla extract

*Other foods can also be used, such as puffed rice, quinoa or millet


  • Heat the butter, agave syrup and nut butter (+ optional vanilla extract) in a saucepan over low heat.
  • Now add the amaranth and the spelled pops and mix everything together well.
  • Pour the mixture into muffin cups, pressing them tightly around the edges and bottom to create a kind of nest.
  • Place the muffin cups in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Melt the white chocolate and add half a teaspoon to the nest. Now put the chocolate peanuts in there.
  • It's best to serve the nests cold so that they keep their shape and don't stick. Stored in a container, they keep well in the fridge.
