Chewy Chocolate Mini Egg Blondie Bars

Chewy Chocolate Mini Egg Blondie Bars
Following on from the success of last years Mini Egg Crunch Bars (aka Easter Rocky Road), I wanted to develop a new mini egg creation in time for Easter (we much prefer mini eggs to creme eggs in this house!).

These Chewy Chocolate Mini Egg Blondie Bars are squidgy, chocolatey and absolutely yummy and would make an ideal bake for the Easter weekend.  We are away in the Lake District the week before Easter (our first trip to the Lakes!), so I've made a batch of these and stashed them away in the freezer ready to pull out as soon as we get home from our hols.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING MINI EGG BLONDIE BARS

  1. The mixture is very sticky so I found it easier to press it into the tin with my hand. Make sure you spread it out to all the corners.
  2. I added 100g milk chocolate chips to the mixture but you could add white or dark choc chips if you prefer.
  3. Reserve some of the mini eggs for scattering on top, but make sure you press them into the mixture slightly to stop them burning.
  4. These bars freeze really well so make a batch now and pull them out over the Easter weekend for your family and friends to enjoy.

  2. Just as well these aren't anywhere near me, or I might just demolish the lot. Love blondies and mini eggs are rather irresistible too. Have pinned.

    BTW - if you make anything chocolatey this month, don't forget We Should Cocoa.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
