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!
