Baking Easter Treats

Today’s post is all about these cute Easter treats you can make over the Easter holidays. If you’re anything like me and don’t actually like eating plain Easter eggs then these simple bakes are great for melting down and using up your eggs! In this post I will explain how I made chocolate nests, creme egg chicks and marshmallow lamb cupcakes.

Chocolate nest Easter tREAT

You will need:

  • Shredded wheat cereal
  • Milk or dark chocolate
  • Mini eggs
  • Cupcake cases
  • Cupcake tin
  • Mixing bowl
  • Spoons

Method:

  1. Melt your chocolate over a mild heat making sure to stir. I used 1 bar of dark cooking chocolate and 1 bar of milk chocolate. However, if you have easter eggs this will work too.
  2. Tear up your shredded wheat into a big mixing bowl, I used 3 bars.
  3. Pour your melted chocolate into the large mixing bowl with the shredded wheat and mix well.
  4. Line your tins with the cupcake cases.
  5. Spoon your mixture into the cases making sure to leave a little dip in the middle.
  6. Put 2 or how many mini eggs you would like in the middle.
  7. Leave it to set in the fridge.

Creme egg chicks easter tREAT

(Although mine do look a bit like melted penguins, haha.)

You will need:

  • Creme eggs
  • Milk chocolate buttons
  • White chocolate buttons
  • Chocolate writing pens
  • Patience

Method:

  1. Unwrap your creme eggs.
  2. Using your white chocolate writing pens create 2 big white dots (you could use icing sugar but, I think that would be even more fiddly)
  3. Then create 2 smaller dots inside the 2 larger white dots with the chocolate pen to create eyes.
  4. Taking your white chocolate buttons snap them into quarters to create a beak shape and stick this on with a chocolate pen.
  5. Take 2 chocolate buttons and use a bit of chocolate icing on 1 half and stick them onto the sides of your creme egg.
  6. Take another 2 chocolate buttons and again cover half of the button and stick your creme egg on top. You may want to rest your egg against something while it sets or put it in the fridge. Beware when I did this my icing eyes started to droop!
