Chocolate Easter Eggs & Bunnies from M&S

Easter Eggs from Marks and Spencers

M&S recently asked us if we'd like to try some of their Easter Eggs from the 2017 range. Err...yes please, it's a hard job but somebody has to do it! 😋😋😋

As you can imagine the kids were delighted when the delivery man arrived on our doorstop with this lot and they wasted no time in ripping open the packaging and tucking in.

Here's what we thought....

Bennet Bunny (£16)


Easter Eggs from Marks and Spencers


A HUGE life size Swiss Chocolate Bunny weighing in at a whopping 900g. This would easily be enough chocolate for 2 or 3 kids! The chocolate is lovely and creamy and I'm afraid to say Mr Bennet Bunny lasted less than 24 hours in this house, thanks to the kids and their friends from around the village (they seemed to descend on my house once word had got around we had a giant chocolate bunny in residence).

It really is very big so it's perfect to give as a family present, or alternatively you could just sit in a corner eating it's body parts one by one. I thought the ears tasted the best.

Fruit and Nut Milk Chocolate Lattice Egg (£12)


Easter Eggs from Marks and Spencers

This beautiful lattice egg was my particular favourite and at £12 seemed quite reasonable for it's size and contents. There were pistachio's, hazelnuts and almonds, as well as golden raisins and sour cherries  - it felt like I wasn't being too naughty eating it. This one got a big thumbs up from me!

Dark Chocolate Quirky Bunny (£10)

Dark Chocolate Quirky Bunny


This Dark Chocolate Quirky Bunny is one for the adults! I LOVE dark chocolate and I particularly love the gold lustre this bunny is covered in. We devoured this after a meal with friends whilst the kids were safely tucked up in bed...it would have been wasted on them!

Thank you to Marks and Spencer's for sending these over!

Disclosure: I received 3 chocolate eggs/bunnies in return for a review. All thoughts are my own.

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.
