Step 1
Break up the chocolate into squares and place in a bowl with the coconut oil over a pan of gently simmering water. Stir until melted and smooth.

Step 2
Carefully remove the bowl from the pan – take care if children are doing this as it will be hot.

Step 3
Add the shredded wheat and mix well so all of the cereal is coated with the chocolate mixture.

Step 4
Spoon 8 mounds onto a baking sheet lined with parchment.

Step 5
Using a teaspoon, shape each mound into a nest.

Step 6
Allow to cool, chill for 30 minutes to harden, then fill each nest with equal amounts of jelly beans or topping of your choice.
