How to Make Easy Easter Treats

Posted on 11 Mar 2016 by Anna Scott
Easter is basically one big treat-fest but with our Sainsburys promo codes, Ocado promo codes and Chocolate Trading Company promo codes you can create even more, and we all know it’s impossible to have too many Easter treats. We think it’s fair to argue that adding chocolate to anything at this time of year transforms it into an Easter treat, but these 2 recipes do have a definite egg theme, along with being incredibly easy to make…


Mini Egg Nests

Just melt 200g of milk chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water (making sure to not let the bottom of the bowl touch the water). Once melted, carefully stir through 80g of crushed shredded wheat. Shape into small nests and place on some greaseproof paper before finishing off by popping 3 mini eggs in the centre of each nest. Leave to chill until set.

Chocolate Brittle

Melt 600g of milk chocolate using the method mentioned above. Roughly smash up 2 bags of mini eggs, then stir in the pieces along with a handful of mini marshmallows. Pour the chocolate mix into a lined baking tray, making sure the bottom is covered, then leave to set in the fridge. Once hardened, break up into pieces, large or small, and enjoy!
