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.

Microwave Jambalaya

Microwave meals are back and this is a fab bung it in the microwave recipe that's a real lifesaver when time is short...or when you don't have the use of an oven! People don't tend to use their microwaves for actually making meals but I've found I can do quite a lot in mine...veggie chilli, risotto's, as well as this really flavourful jambalaya with chorizo and red pepper.

I'll be posting more easy microwave meals in the coming weeks so keep an eye out on the blog.

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…
