Sure, little Easter egg nest cakes with chicks are super cute and all… BUT we kinda think Dinosaurs are better. So our chocolate egg nest cakes are the dinosaur kind, chocolate-y and delicious, just like cakes should be.

To whip up a batch of dinosaur chocolate egg cakes with the kids you’ll just need chocolate, chocolate eggs and cereal, we use cornflakes or rice-crispies usually. They super easy to make and a recipe kids always love to get involved and help out with.
