Easter rocky road

There’s no better time to whip up some decadent sweet treats than at Easter and there’s no shortage of inspiration with so many chocolate eggs lining shop shelves.

The trick is finding a recipe that ticks all the boxes. It needs to be quick enough to whip up in a hurry, easy enough to be fail-proof and (of course) super delicious. Luckily this decadent Easter rocky road is all those things and more – you’re going to love it.

Imagine smooth white chocolate laden with chopped marshmallow eggs and mini chocolate eggs mixed together with a generous helping of crushed pretzels, freeze-dried strawberries and raspberries. Oh, and topped with extra Easter eggs, pretzels and berries for good measure. Pretty special, huh?

Homemade Easter bundles

Easter-bundles-1

Every year Kevin and I try to do something a little different when we gift out Easter eggs. After all, Easter only comes around once a year so you might as well make the most of it, right?

While cellophane, ribbon and baskets are usually my best friends come Easter time, this year I decided to try something a little different and use preserving jars and mason jar mugs to create cute little Easter bundles for friends and family – and they turned out pretty darn cute!

Creme Egg fudge

Easter is without a doubt one of my favourite times of year – what’s not to love about four days off work and mountains of delicious chocolate eggs packing the shelves (and let’s be honest, filling my tummy).

One of my favourite things to do at this time of year is come up with deliciously decadent treats that are perfect for enjoying as part of your annual Easter-chocolate-coma, or giving to loved ones as gifts instead of the standard store-bought bits of pieces. And luckily, this delicious Creme Egg fudge ticks both boxes.

You might remember that I shared a recipe for pretty delish Pineapple Lump Fudge late last year (if not, click here to check it out). Well, this Creme Egg fudge is based on the same recipe and is equally as delicious.

I hope you have all had a wonderful couple of weeks – here are five things to get your week off to a great start…

Burrowing Bunny Truffles

Bunnies are as much a part of Easter as eggs, chocolate and hot cross buns, so it only seemed right that they would feature in some of this year’s Easter baking. The trick? Deciding how!

Last year I made these adorable mint chocolate Easter bunnies, featuring puffy little mini-marshmallow tails. And I loved them – there’s just something about rabbit’s tails that gets me every time.

Those bunny-themed treats were super simple, so I wanted to make something a little more interesting this year – you know, jazz it up a bit. With this in mind I decided to make another ‘bunny bum’ treat – Burrowing bunny Oreo truffles!
