Surrounded by a mountain of Easter eggs? We can help you do something different with your chocolate collection this year! Whether you love to bake, or simply want to do something fun with the family on Easter Monday, we think you’ll love these amazing child-friendly Easter recipes.
Gigantic chocolate buttons
Thought you couldn’t top the humble chocolate button? Think again! Children will love this recipe as it’s super messy (sorry, adults!) and really easy. Simply melt some Easter chocolate into a bowl, and spoon a few dollops onto a lined baking sheet. Decorate with sprinkles, popping candy, chocolate chips and any other treats you can find!
This gigantic ‘Jazzies’ recipe is one of our favourites.
Chocolate orange muffins
This gorgeous recipe uses melted Easter chocolate for both the muffin and the ganache; it’s a double whammy! Children only need to add in a teeny-weeny bit of orange essence, as a little goes a long way. Our advice? Try not to eat all of the smooth ganache before adding to your bake!

Hot chocolate milkshake
Who doesn’t love a creamy, dreamy hot chocolate? Little ones will love smashing up Easter egg pieces and adding in their own toppings; mini marshmallows, ice-cream, squirty cream and sprinkles are all great additions.

Mini Easter cheesecakes
Rice Krispies? Check. Mini Eggs? Double check. This mini cheesecake recipe uses yummy Rice Krispies for the base, chocolate spread and smashed Mini Eggs for the middle. As if that wasn’t enough chocolatey goodness, the cheesecakes are topped off with even more Mini Eggs! Get children involved with the smashing, mixing and, ahem, taste-testing.

Chocolate cornflake cakes
Chocolate cornflake cakes (or ‘nest cakes’) are a classic sweet treat during Easter. Best of all, there’s absolutely no cooking involved: all you have to do is melt butter, golden syrup and leftover Easter egg chocolate in a pan, stir in the cornflakes and refrigerate. Decorate with Mini Eggs as an extra treat.

Soft-centred Easter egg pudding
Those with a sweet tooth know the best dessert on any menu is a gooey chocolate pudding, so why not make your own this Easter? They’re much easier to make than you might imagine; the key is to make them soft in the centre, but firm around the edges. Wait for the tantalising moment when you slice your first spoon through the middle, and a pool of molten chocolate spills out. Yum!

Fill the balloons with lots of treats, and let the little darlings chomp on their creation once they’re finished. The best bit? No washing up!

Chocolate fridge cake
Perfect for biscuit fans, this recipe mixes digestive biscuits with melted chocolate, butter, golden syrup and dried fruit. Hand the rolling pin over and let the children smash the biscuits to a pulp! Add the biscuits to melted chocolate and spoon everything into a shallow baking tin. Drizzle even more melted chocolate on top and get children to make their own swirly designs. All you need to do now is wait whilst it chills in the fridge!
