Kataifi pastry, consisting of thin strands of dough, is a staple in Greek cuisine and lends itself to creating unique and extraordinary dishes.

Keep it covered with a damp towel to maintain its moisture.

how to cook Easy Chocolate Easter Nests?


Let’s get started on creating these mouthwatering Chocolate Easter Nests! First, we’ll preheat our oven to 200⁰C (400⁰F). Then we’ll make the filling. In a medium bowl, combine the chopped chocolate, milk, and butter.

TIPS: If you’re not a fan of dark chocolate, here’s a little tip for you. Instead of using dark chocolate, go for the milk one. It will give your dessert a softer and sweeter touch.


Melt the ingredients together over a pan of simmering water, stirring constantly until smooth.

TIPS: To properly create a water bath (a pan of simmering water), place the bowl on a saucepan with gently simmering water. Make sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water.

TIPS: Wondering how to melt chocolate, milk and butter together? You have two options: either use a water bath (a pan of simmering water) or pop it in the microwave. Both methods work like a charm, so go with whichever one suits your fancy.


Let it cool slightly, then pour the chocolate mixture over the chopped walnuts.

TIPS: Don’t limit yourself to just chocolate and walnuts for the filling. Get creative and experiment with your favorite jam, raisins, or nuts. They can add a delightful twist to this recipe.


Next, it’s time to work on the dough. Thaw the Kataifi pastry according to the package instructions. Separate the strands of dough on your working surface.

TIPS: When working with the Kataifi pastry, keep in mind that it is incredibly thin and tends to dry out quickly. This can make it more challenging to handle and may cause it to break. To avoid this, simply cover the Kataifi pastry strands with a damp towel to keep them moist and pliable.

TIPS: If you don’t have the Kataifi pastry on hand, don’t worry! You can easily substitute it with puff pastry. Just cut it into strands using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter.


Carefully transfer these separated strands of the Kataifi pastry to a large bowl.


Drizzle these dough strands with melted butter. Mix carefully but well.

TIPS: Melt your butter either on the stove or in the microwave – whichever is more convenient for you.


Grease two 6-piece muffin tins with butter.


Place some Kataifi strands in each muffin cup.


Now press the dough strands into the cups with a glass to form nests.
