Last Minute Easter Treats

There's only a few days until Easter but there's still plenty of time to bake some Easter treats. I have already shared recipes for two lovely and simple recipes :

Caramel Chocolate Easter Cupcakes

Chocolate Pretzel Easter Nests

I have been meaning to make some Mini Egg Cookies for ages and had a bag of Mini Eggs in my pantry ready and waiting. I finally got around to making some - I'm not sure why I didn't make them sooner as they are really quick and easy, but here's the recipe if you want to rustle some up ready for the Easter weekend.

Mini Egg Cookies - Makes approx 16 large cookies

115g Butter, softened
230g Caster sugar
35g Golden syrup
1 Egg
230g Self Raising Flour
1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
100g Chocolate Mini eggs
  • Beat the butter and sugar together
  • Mix in the golden syrup & egg
  • Stir the flour and bicarbonate of soda together and add to the butter/sugar mixture
  • Mix well, adding the mini eggs just as the mixture starts to come together
  • Roll mixture into balls (heaped tbsp) and place on a greased baking sheet, spaced well apart
  • Bake in a preheated 170 C oven for approx 10 minutes, until golden brown
  • Cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack
  • Store in an airtight container

If you don't have the time or the inclination for baking this Easter, you could always pop along to your local M&S where they have a great selection of Easter treats for all the family, including an Assorted Chocolate Egg Nest (£10), Belgian Chocolate Mini Egg selection (£4), Percy Pig Egg (£6), Colin the Caterpillar Egg (£6) and many many more.

If like hot cross buns then my kids say that you really should try the Toffee Fudge & Belgian Chocolate Hot Cross Buns (£1.49)

I was sent the Easter eggs & hot cross buns for the purpose of this review
