How To Make Chocolate Nests

We asked two Section Leaders to swap positions for a meeting. Here is an activity taken from their Programme you can do too!

In the last issue of Scouting Magazine, Beaver Scout Leader Paula became the leader of Whitmore Scout Troop in Orsett, Thurrock of an evening.

1. Welcome

The night began with an energetic game of dodge ball, but before long the Scouts had rolled up their sleeves for the main activity- making chocolate nests! Take a look behind the scenes of the swap and learn how to make your own delicious chocolate treat. 

To make the nests you will need:

  • At least two packs of each type of chocolate (dark, milk and white)
  • A pack of balloons
  • A tub of butter
  • Maltesers or mini chocolate eggs
  • Piping bags
  • Paper plates
