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.

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.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Chocolate Honeycomb Salted Caramel Cheesecake

It's no secret that I'm a sucker for a cheesecake. If I'm eating out and there is a cheesecake on the menu, I WILL make room for it and any ensuing indigestion is well worth it in my opinion. Similarly, if you turn up at my house on a high day or holiday you'll find a homemade cheesecake being served. I just never get bored of them and have been known to polish off a slice for breakfast on occasion. One of my all time favourite cheesecake recipes is a baked raspberry one that gets an outing several times a year at the request of friends and family. Despite my tried and tested recipe, I thought it was about time that I developed something new to add to my cheesecake repertoire.

This no bake Chocolate Honeycomb Salted Caramel Cheesecake was by all accounts a bit of a revelation.... in taste and looks! It's definitely got the WOW factor and I'm very glad I decided to 'branch out'.

The base of the cheesecake is made from crushed milk chocolate digestive bis…
