Easter Millionaire’s Shortbread
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.
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 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
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
Lucy over at Baking Queen has made a chocolate Malteser loaf cake. Perfect for a red nose cake sale or Easter, who could resist?
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great minds think alike. Kat over at The Baking Explorer had a similar idea, but used Baileys rather than stout – Baileys cheesecake chocolate brownies.
Crunchy meringues on top of gooey brownies sounds rather a good combination. Snow capped meringue brownie bites from A2K – A Seasonal Veg Table.
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
We have another Easter contribution from Jenny at Mummy Mishaps. Who could resist a slices of this Malteser bunny & mini egg white chocolate cheesecake?
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.
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.
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.
And to finish off our chocolate Easter recipes we have this rather splendid no-bake M&M’s cheesecake from Jess Eats & Travels.
If you’ve never made your own chocolate custard, you can find out how at Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen.
It seems we can’t quite get enough of Easter this year. The recipes have been coming thick and fast well after the chocolate festivities were supposedly over. Jo’s Kitchen Larder brings us these cute Easter chocolate shortbread biscuits with mini eggs and there a few bunnies thrown in for good measure I noticed.
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.
And another Easter bake from Green Gourmet Giraffe. These Easter macaroons with Nutella nests are a good way to get the kids involved with baking. They look really good too.
Red velvet is popular this month and now I realise why. Stuart at Cakeyboi made these red velvet cookies to mark Red Nose Day.
Suelle over at Mainly baking brings us an unusual but delightful combination of flavours in these date and ginger chocolate chip biscuits.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Happy 2nd blog anniversary to Angela at Only Crumbs Remain. She chose to celebrate by crafting these gorgeous hazelnut and caramel chocolates.
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.
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.
I’m a massive matcha fan and I’m now dying to try these vegan chocolate matcha truffles from Nico at Yumsome.
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?
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.
Ros from The More Than Occasional Baker kicks us off in fine style with these impressive passionfruit and cream cheese filled chocolate Easter eggs. She assures us they are really quite simple to make, but I’m not sure I’d make as good a job AND she made chocolate spoons to go with them.
We have more Easter delights from Johanna over at Green Gourmet Giraffe who had fun with her daughter Sylvia making these very cute Easter egg chicks. If you pop over to her site, you will also see some rather delightful chocolate carrots.
Not content with just any old Easter eggs, Caroline over at Caroline Makes decided to make her own. These fondant-filled chocolate eggs and bunnies were the result.
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.
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
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.
