We can only assume that you, our reader, are over certain age in which you probably don’t receive any Easter eggs like you used to when you were younger, fear no longer (unless you buy yourself some) but what’s more better now than making your own!?
No more disappointment, you can add whatever you like and make as many as you like!
This year, we have done exactly that, we have created our own half Easter eggs with Lizi’s Belgian Chocolate Granola* and almond flakes, of course you don’t have to do this, you could add smarties instead of almonds, but anyway, check out how we made these babies below!
Makes: 6 half eggsPrep: 5 minutes | Cooling Time: 1 hr
– 100g good quality plain/milk chocolate
– Handful of Lizi’s
Belgian Chocolate Granola
– Handful of nuts, raisins
or any other dried fruit
Alternatively, try sprinkles
or honeycomb chunks (for the sweeter tooth!)
1. Break the chocolate
(plain or milk work better) into chunks and melt in the microwave in short
bursts on a medium heat. Stir between each blast. Or, if you’re like us, boil some water in a pan or serving bowl and place smaller bowl above the water to melt the chocolate.
2. When molten, crumble
half the Lizi’s Belgian Chocolate Granola* into the melted chocolate and pour or
spoon the chocolate carefully in to your mould.
3. Whilst the chocolate
is still molten, sprinkle over the remaining Lizi’s Belgian Chocolate Granola
and add your chosen topping.
4. Carefully put the
mould in the fridge and allow to set for at least 1 hour.
5. The shapes should pop
out easily once hardened, although they may need a little encouragement by
sliding a knife around the side.
Disclaimer: we were given Lizi’s granola in order to create this recipe, but as always all photos and opinions are ours
