Yes, the Easter Bank Holiday weekend is almost upon us. That means some much deserved chill-out time, catch-ups with family and friends and, of course, chocolate! There’s no better time to treat yourself and indulge in the sweet stuff in our opinion. So, to celebrate, we’ve rounded up 5 of the most chocolatey recipes that we could find. Give them a go with your leftover Easter eggs this weekend. (If you haven’t gobbled them up already like us!)
Chocolate Marbled Italian Easter Bread
If you’re not fan on a full-on chocolate fest then these brioche-style twists from Joy the Baker are a great alternative! Speckled with chocolate chips, they’ll make an indulgent brekkie on Easter Sunday.
Mexican Hot Chocolate
We can always rely on Nigella for a foolproof calorie-filled treat, and these spiced chocolate drinks don’t disappoint. You can even add a dash of Kahlua if you want to add a little extra kick!
Creme Egg Brownies
We know, we know. The classic Cadbury Creme Egg isn’t everyone’s favourite Easter treat. But, if you’re a fan, then you’ll go crazy for this scrumptious brownie recipe from Cook Bake Eat. It contains half a dozen of these infamous chocolate treats – and it’s not for the fainthearted!
Okay, okay, you probably don’t need a recipe for these – but what round-up would be complete without this childhood classic?! Plus, these Easter Nests from The Happy Foodie shake things up a little by combining milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and Mars bars! (Yes. Seriously.)
Smoky Veggie Chilli
Had enough of the sweet stuff yet? We feel you! Everyone’s favourite cheeky chappy Jamie Oliver shows us how we can add chocolate into our savoury dishes too with this hearty chilli recipe. Cocoa powder, to be precise, adds a depth of flavour to this family favourite (and apparently it helps to keep skin and hair strong and healthy, too!).
