With Easter, just a hop, skip and a jump away it’s now time to make those last-minute chocolate gifts. If your anything like me and can’t be trusted around chocolate you have probably eaten an Easter egg or two by now, oops. I am literally incapable of storing chocolate in the house and not eating it. If you’re like me this recipe is the one for you.
Easter Eggs and Easter themed treats can be a bit of a swindle money wise can’t they (yep, essentially a solid bar of dairy milk contains way more chocolate for your money than that novelty Easter egg) But then again where’s the fun. This recipe is guaranteed to put a smile on your kid’s faces. I’m also a sucker for an Easter egg or any form of chocolate cuteness, so it makes me smile too.
Did you catch our Bunny Bark recipe? Well, Ii you caught that post you will know I am a sucker for all things cute and pretty. If you haven’t seen that post yet then pop on over.
If you don’t have the cash to splash on a swish chocolate egg or novelty chocolate ‘slab’ (like they sell in John Lewis and Hotel Chocolat) fear not, I have a simple recipe here guaranteed to make family and friends hoppy with EGGcitement. The best part is that this bark is so easy peasy to put together, it can hardly be called a recipe, yet it yields impressive results.
So let’s stop all the chocolate chit chat and get to the recipe
- 200g Dark Chocolate
- 100g White Chocolate
- 10-15 yellow round sweets. I used M&M's
- Line a baking tray with Parchment paper
- Melt the dark chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water or in the microwave.
- Once melted poor the dark chocolate on to the prepared baking tray and spread out with a spatula. Spread this in to a rough rectangle sheet.
- Next melt the white chocolate. With a teaspoon spoon on the white chocolate into fried eggs shapes.
- Now pop an M&M on to each fried egg and place in the fridge to set for 30 min.
- Once set, cut of smash into pieces.
- Enjoy 🙂
