Easter Millionaire’s Shortbread

Easter Millionaire's Shortbread. One of 40+ Easter chocolate recipes.

Chonnie from Baked to Imperfection brings us the very first Easter recipe of the season. She baked these mini egg millionaire’s shortbread as part of her first blog birthday celebrations.

Golden Egg Millionaire's Shortbread. One of 40+ chocolate Easter recipes.

Who doesn’t adore millionaire’s shortbread? This Galaxy golden egg millionaire’s shortbread from The Baking Explorer is a particularly luxurious version and looks even more special topped with golden eggs.

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.

Easter Chocolate Cakes

Hedgehog Cake. One of 40+ Easter chocolate recipes.

Johanna’s daughter Sylvia is a very lucky girl. I would have loved to have a birthday hedgehog cake when I was a child. I’ve always had a fondness for hedgehogs AND chocolate cake. Doesn’t he look cute?

Easter Chocolate Cake. One of 40+ Easter chocolate recipes.

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.

Upside down blood orange cake.

Shaheen over at A2K – A Seasonal Veg Table made this glorious upside down Sicilain blood orange chocolate cake to please her husband, but as it turned out she rather liked it too.

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.

Malteser Loaf

Lucy over at Baking Queen has made a chocolate Malteser loaf cake. Perfect for a red nose cake sale or Easter, who could resist?

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!

Easter Brownies

Caramel Egg Brownies. One of 40+ chocolate Easter recipes.

Cadbury caramel egg brownies. Two of my favourite things wrapped up in this wonderful fudgy bake from Something Sweet Something Savoury. Chocolate and caramel are a match made in heaven.

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.

Black Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

With a nod to St Patrick’s Day my contribution to March’s #WeShouldCocoa were these luscious black velvet cheesecake swirl brownies with stout caramel sauce.

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.

Baileys Cheesecake Chocolate Brownies

Great minds think alike. Kat over at The Baking Explorer had a similar idea, but used Baileys rather than stout – Baileys cheesecake chocolate brownies.

Snow Capped Meringue Brownie Bites

Crunchy meringues on top of gooey brownies sounds rather a good combination. Snow capped meringue brownie bites from A2K – A Seasonal Veg Table.

White Chocolate & Mini Egg Blondies. One of 40+ Easter chocolate recipes.

You can’t have Easter without some mini eggs and here is the first recipe in which they appear. Irresistible white chocolate & mini eggs blondies from Jo’s Kitchen Larder.

Easter Chocolate Dessert

Easter White Chocolate Cheesecake. One of 40+ Easter chocolate recipes.

We have another Easter contribution from Jenny at Mummy Mishaps. Who could resist a slices of this Malteser bunny & mini egg white chocolate cheesecake?

Vegan Chocolate Banana Mousse

Chocolate mousse is a firm favourite with pretty much everyone I know. This chocolate banana mousse from Everyday Healthy Recipes not only looks scrumptious, but it’s vegan too, so everyone can enjoy it.

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.

Red Velvet Cheesecake

A cake come dessert is the best type of cake I reckon. Caroline made a red velvet cheesecake to fulfil this function for a late Valentine’s dinner.

M&M's Cheesecake

And to finish off our chocolate Easter recipes we have this rather splendid no-bake M&M’s cheesecake from Jess Eats & Travels.

Chocolate Custard

If you’ve never made your own chocolate custard, you can find out how at Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen.

Easter Cookies

Creme Egg Cookies. One of 40+ chocolate Easter recipes.

There’s more Easter fun from Camilla at Fab Food 4 All with her easy creme egg cookies. They are crispy on the outside, gooey in the middle and made with pecan nuts.

Red Velvet Cookies

Red velvet is popular this month and now I realise why. Stuart at Cakeyboi made these red velvet cookies to mark Red Nose Day.

Date & Ginger Chocolate Chip Biscuits

Suelle over at Mainly baking brings us an unusual but delightful combination of flavours in these date and ginger chocolate chip biscuits.

Easter Tiffin

Gluten Free Easter Tiffin.One of 40+ Easter chocolate recipes.

Tiffin is one of my favourite things so I’m really glad to see this no bake creme egg biscuit cake amongst these marvellous Easter chocolate recipes. I’m hoping Kate at The Gluten Free Alchemist has made this just for me.

The Best Tiffin Ever - Sour Cherry & Almond

This sour cherry and almond chocolate tiffin is not just for Easter. My contribution to this month’s chocolate Easter recipes is a true force to be reckoned with and makes the perfect easy no-bake for any celebratory occasion.

Mini Egg Rice Crispy Squares. One of 40+ Easter chocolate recipes.

I am super impressed by our second mini eggs recipe from Curly’s Cooking. Cat gave up chocolate for Lent, but still resisted temptation when making mini egg rice crispy squares. I know I would not have been so virtuous.

Chocolate Muesli Slice

If you have some delicious homemade muesli in your cupboard, which for some unfathomable reason has been there for longer than it should, then take a leaf out of Johanna’s book and make this chocolate muesli slice with quandong and strawberries. It sounds heavenly.

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.

Easter Chocolates

Homemade Easter Eggs with salted caramel popcorn.

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.

Hazelnut & Caramel Chocolates

Happy 2nd blog anniversary to Angela at Only Crumbs Remain. She chose to celebrate by crafting these gorgeous hazelnut and caramel chocolates.

Mozartkugein. One of 40+ chocolate Easter recipes.

If you’re a marzipan fan like me, you’ll adore these Mozartkugein from Yumsome. Pistachio marzipan, almond marzipan and chocolate nougat encased in smooth chocolate. I can feel myself salivating as I type. And of course, they are vegan and refined sugar free.

Chocolate Scotch Eggs. One of 40+ chocolate Easter recipes.

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.

Vegan Chocolate Matcha Truffles

I’m a massive matcha fan and I’m now dying to try these vegan chocolate matcha truffles from Nico at Yumsome.

Easter Bunny Bums. One of 40+ chocolate Easter recipes.

Foodie Quine has a thing for Tunnock’s Teacakes. She transforms them into all sorts of fun creations. This Easter she gives us Tunnock’s Teacake Easter Bunny Bums. Aren’t they cute?

Vegan Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Bites

And more luscious chocolates from the Gluten Free Alchemist, only these are frozen ones. The mint chocolate ice cream bites are not only vegan, but they sound delightful.

Easter Cupcakes

Chocolate Caramel Easter Cupcakes. One of 40+ chocolate Easter recipes.

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.

Double Chocolate Orange Cupcakes. One of 40+ chocolate Easter recipes.

Dried orange slices look so stylish and they are put to good effect over at Only Crumbs Remain, decorating these elegant double chocolate orange cupcakes.

Extra Chocolate Easter Recipes

Cinnamon and Chocolate Hazelnut Buns. One of 40+ chocolate Easter recipes.

Much as I love cake, I find it almost impossible to resist a good bun. These cinnamon and chocolate hazelnut buns from Dom at Belleau Kitchen are completely irresistible.

Black Bean Hemp Brownie Protein Shake

Now if you’re feeling you need a break from all these sweet treats, Elizabeth gives us this super healthy black bean & hemp brownie protein shake.
