Feaster: Top 10 sensational Easter sweets and desserts
You’ve just come home from the new Coastal Activity Park in Boscombe, drenched after snorkelling your way around the reef. You’ve had your world flipped upside down after an afternoon of intergalactic expeditions at the 6D Cinema in Town. You’ve stumbled in through your font door at 3am Monday morning after rubbing shoulders with MIC’s finest in Cameo. A cup of tea and a sweet treat is definitely on the cards.
Here are 10 of the most wonderful sweet treats to gorge yourself with Easter weekend 2014:

Taking the traditional and adding chocolate.

2) Cornflake Mini Egg Nests
We’ve all made these before, they are an Easter staple! Melt your favourite chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water (make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water). Add cornflakes (or rice crispies) to the melted choc and spoon into cases. Dot the eggs on top and leave to set in the fridge until the chocolate sets.
3) Simnel Cake
An Easter classic and a perfect alternative to all of the chocolate eating madness!
