Chocolate Easter Eggs

Its Easter time again, and I am already on chocolate overload! My belly is full of the sweet delicious goodness that comes only from chocolate, and I would not have it any other way. As my mother says it is the one weekend of the year where you don't have to feel bad about having chocolate for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert!

I have been wary about baking too much over the Easter weekend, as I am fearful that I might just go a little overboard and suffer death by chocolate (if that is even possible) I did get into the Easter spirit and whip up some of these incredibly delicious and easy chocolate eggs. They are very very simple and taste amazing; what’s best is they are great for kids to make and even the adults love them!

I hope you are all having a relaxing weekend, celebrating Easter with good food, family and of course the odd spot of chocolat here and there!

Happy Easter!!


200g good quality dark chocolate

100 ml thickened cream

A pinch of salt

10 Arnott's Chocolate Ripple biscuits

Chocolate sprinkles

Hundreds and Thousands


Using a bread knife cut up chocolate into shards.

In a saucepan bring the cream almost to the boil and then pour over the chocolate and let sit for 5 minutes.


After sitting carefully stir the chocolate and cream together so that it becomes a smooth, glossy, luscious chocolate sauce. Add a pinch of salt and stir.

Cover the chocolate with cling film and place in the fridge for 1 hour.
Whilst chocolate is in the fridge, put the chocolate ripple biscuits in a food processor and process until finely chopped.

Add this to the chocolate mixture and then place in the fridge for a further 3 hours. Just a little side not here, you can add some alcohol to the mix if you are feeling a little naughty.

Take the chocolate out of the fridge and roll into egg shapes. Then roll the eggs into the chocolate sprinkles, or the hundreds and thousands. Place into small patty cake cups and put back in the fridge until hard.

Now if you still have room for some chocolate, go ahead and devour these! You might need a glass of milk to wash down all of that chocolate goodness! Enjoy!
