13 Easter Chocolate Recipes

Beetroot Brownies

Adding vegetables to cakes and other sweet treats is by no means a new concept says Shaheen from A2K – A Seasonal Veg Table. New or not, I’m a big fan of beetroot and chocolate and would be very happy tucking into one of these beetroot chocolate brownies.

 

Unicorn Easter Slice

There’s been a lot of talk about unicorns in the baking world recently. I still haven’t quite grasped what it’s all about, but Lucy the Baking Queen has. Here’s her no-bake unicorn mini egg white chocolate slice.

 

Salted Caramel Chocolate Squares

Salted caramel and chocolate fudge squares sound just too good to miss. The credit for this clever invention goes to Suelle at Mainly Baking. I can’t resist salted caramel.

 

Milk Chocolate Tart

There’s no pretence at sophistication with this milk chocolate unashamed Easter tart from Apply to Face Blog. Just top with mini eggs and let everyone tuck in and enjoy.

 

Chocolate Berry Cake

This glamorous and very decadent fudgy chocolate-berry birthday cake was made for Kate at the Gluten Free Alchemist by her talented 11 year old. Wow!

 

Chocolate Caramel Easter Cupcakes

Pretty chocolate cupcakes are a boon to any tea party, but fill them with caramel, then you’ll have me hooked. Kat’s chocolate & caramel golden egg cupcakes over at The Baking Explorer look superb.

 

Sweet Potato Brownies

Corina from Searching for Spice has also opted for vegetable brownies this month. In support of Bowel Cancer UK she baked up some healthier sweet potato brownies. Now I’ve seen the recipe, I’m itching to try them.

 

Chocolate Marble Cheesecake

This chocolate marble cheesecake from Jo’s Kitchen Larder is made with Twaróg, a Polish curd cheese I’ve not come across before. The cheesecake sits on a brownie base and sounds way too good to resist.

 

Easter Chocolate Cake

Well you can’t have too many Easter eggs at Easter I say and what a lovely collection of mini eggs this Easter chocolate cake sports. I’m rather taken with Good Egg Foodie’s square bundt tin too.

 

Homemade Easter Eggs

I had a go at making my own Easter eggs this year. Inspired by a Divine popcorn Easter egg, I made chocolate salted caramel popcorn and stuffed it into my Easter eggs – it truly was divine.

 

Chocolate Scotch Eggs

More homemade Easter eggs, but chocolate Scotch eggs this time. Johanna from Green Gourmet Giraffe reckoned these might be her only chance of trying a Scotch egg and when it comes down to it I know which type I’d rather tuck into.

 

Chocolate R2D2 Cake

If you know any Star War fans, why not try baking them a chocolate Star Wars R2D2 cake? You can find out how to do it over at Caroline Makes, who baked one for her husband’s birthday.

 

Vegan Chocolate Raspberry Cake

And to finish off, we have a glorious vegan chocolate raspberry cake from Katie Cakes. Like Katie, I was amazed at how good a vegan cake could be when I first made one several years ago, Now vegan baking has become so normal, I barely think about it.

    You know, just when I am beginning to despair about blogging I am reminded that some people still do these old school blogging challenges and I feel better!

    What a great round up! Your chocolate salted caramel popcorn Easter eggs sound delicious and I know my husband (who’s a star wars fan) would also love Caroline’s cake! Thanks for joining in, your brownies are rather good too.

      Thanks Corina. The popcorn eggs were a real hit. Caroline is an absolute star for making that cake – no pun intended!

      The Star Wars cake is very clever and I wouldn’t mind being given one of those myself 🙂
