This year I've avoided jumping onto the calorific creme egg brownies, cookies and cupcakes by staying traditional. Each Easter for as long as I could stand on a stool to the kitchen counter I've made the super easy Cornflake Cakes topped with a generous helping on mini eggs. There's never just one on a cake in this house. Popping out to my Grandma's last night I was shocked to hear my littlest cousin (age 7) has never made cornflake cakes!? If it weren't for being 7pm and out in the countryside I'd had made them there and then with her. In case you haven't made them OR wondering which recipe to go for here's how I make mine which this year I decided to spread the mixture out into a tray rather than fiddly cases. A couple weeks ago I came across an adorable pastel range in ASDA, as well as it being super cute, they had them on offer. The wavy edged blue ceramic tray just HAD to come home and I still need to head back for the lilac. You couldn't ask for a better tray for an Easter theme treat. What Easter treats are you making this Easter? Lucy xx
Recipe for Easter Cornflake Tray Bake:
300g Dark Chocolate (the cheaper the better if you ask me)
9 Tablespoons of Golden Syrup
2 Packets of Mini Eggs (my favourites being Aldi's) Sorry Cadbury's!
Step One: Melt the Butter, Chocolate & Golden Syrup in a large bowl over a saucepan with little water & gentle heat.
Step Two: Take bowl off heat and gently stir in the cornflakes in small amounts.
Step Three: Spread the mixture into a tray prepared with cling film.
Step Four: Decorate with Mini Eggs and leave to set in the fridge.
Step Five: Once set slice into desired portions - I made 18.
