Easter is a time of eating lots of sugary goodness and although it is fairly easy these days to just nip out to the shop and buy some treats off the shelves, its still nice to make something at home and get the whole family involved with the fun. You will likely need to keep an eye on the kids though, to make sure they don’t eat all your ingredients. So… If you enjoy cooking and baking then we have some fantastic recipes to share with you this Easter.
We cant miss out a recipe for some lovely Hot Cross Buns. Traditionally you eat hot cross buns on Good Friday. Its a tough bake but well worth the effort. Once ready to eat, serve warm with lashings of melted butter, perfect for a snack on Good Friday.
This recipe isn’t for the faint hearted, its fairly technical and might end up with a rather messy kitchen. However, should you be successful the results are brilliant and very tasty. This just goes to show how much of a bargain you are getting when you buy a pre-made Creme Egg for under a pound.
This recipe is easy enough to make in your sleep. Its also one of the tastiest milkshakes I have ever drank meaning I will be stocking up on plenty of Creme Eggs and having these in the summer to cool off.
Simply grab some ice cream, creme eggs and milk. Now blend, DONE!
These little snacks remind me slightly of chocolate covered rice crispy treats. These are made in a similar way by coating the main ingredient with melted chocolate and leaving to set. You can even go all the way and really impress with this recipe as it goes as far to show you how to make all the little floral extras surrounding the snack itself.
These are perfect tasty little treats for the kids. You could serve up these delightful marshmallow birds with the Candy Bird Nests or as a little something extra to the hot cross buns on Good Friday.
If your looking for a quick bake, this one isn’t for you, this one takes time and dedication of a good few days. If you do decide to take this challenge on then you can be sure that the results will be impressive and will hopefully wow any guests you are having over for dinner.
