Whatever way you celebrate Easter, whether it’s with a sumptuous brunch or a classic dinner, one thing is sure to be present – those sweet indulgences! In many households, Easter Sunday morning will be filled with the gentle rustle of tinfoil being removed from chocolate eggs and bunnies by greedy little fingers. But if you’re a bit cash-strapped after the disaster that was 2020, you can still treat your family but save some money. Here’s how to make your own delicious Easter holiday chocolate treats the whole family will love.
Giant Polly Waffle
Can’t wait for Polly Waffle’s big return? Then, don’t! Make your own instead - and there’s never been a better time to do it then this coming Easter. Amaze your family with this massive Polly Waffle full of chocolatey goodness, fluffy marshmallows, and crispy wafers. What’s even more incredible about this recipe is that you don’t need an oven to make it because it’s no-bake. But you’ll need an electric beater to achieve the desired consistency.
Easter Cadbury egg cookies
Did we say, Cadbury? Yes, we did - and we’re talking about using some cute Cadbury mini eggs to adorn these delicious Easter cookies. After all, Easter isn’t Easter without some chocolate easter eggs! Heaps of them on top of these cookies for the kids (young and old) to enjoy. These cookies are sweet, cute, and easy to make too. This time around though, you’ll definitely need your oven to make them.
Chocolate bar nests
If you’re not in the mood for baking cookies, you’re too busy, or your oven is a bit past its’ use-by date, you can still create beautiful nests for those lovely Easter eggs. This recipe is the perfect alternative that’s also quick and easy to make with only four ingredients; chocolate bars (best to use Mars or Snickers), shredded wheat (or Rice Krispies), butter, and chocolate eggs. All it takes to make them is ten minutes, and there you have it.
Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Egg
Here’s to more eggs and chocolate. This time, it’s a delicious chocolate peanut butter egg recipe - just like Reese’s but homemade. There are only five ingredients in this recipe; peanut butter (of course), butter, powdered sugar, brown sugar, and chocolate chips. And as an added bonus, these eggs are incredibly easy to make. To get the best egg shape result, you will need a silicon egg-shaped mold.
Sweet shop bark
Create a chock-full chocolate bark with only three ingredients - dark (or milk) chocolate, white chocolate, and whatever Easter treats you want to throw in. The beauty of this recipe is that it’s so versatile, and all it takes is a little bit of creativity. Pro-tip - it’s best to use a double boiler to melt the chocolates. Any leftovers (like that’s going to happen!) will even last for two weeks if you keep them in an airtight container.
Easter basket chocolate cake
If you want to go all the way with chocolate this Easter break, and if you have the natural flair for baking, this gigantic chocolate cake is for you. Unlike the other recipes in this blog, this one has quite a few steps, but it’s so beautiful we just had to add it here. It’s a delight for both the stomach and the eyes. Imagine an actual Easter basket made from chocolate cake? It’s simply adorable!
Belgian chocolate truffles
There’s nothing like a delicious chocolate truffle to enjoy with that Easter morning coffee and this recipe is so quick and simple that the kids can help make them! Just make sure you use some really good quality chocolate (like Lindt) and don’t forget - for an adult version you can add a little rum or brandy to take them to a whole new level.
