13 Easter Chocolate Recipes
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.
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 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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
