Salted Caramel Raw Chocolate Easter Nests
April 11, 2017
With Easter just around the corner these are the best little treats to make. Chocolate nests are a favourite this time of year, and fun to make whatever your age. These chocolate Easter nests are a healthy twist on the traditional kind, switching milk chocolate and syrup for raw chocolate and sugar-free salted caramel. While the ingredients are a little healthier, they taste just as good if not better and are dairy-free, refined sugar-free and vegan.
