What you will need –

  • 1 hour of your time
  • 20cm brownie tin
  • Baking paper

Ingredients:

  • 150g dark chocolate
  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 275g caster sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 85g plain flour
  • 40g cocoa powder
  • 5 Cadbury creme eggs

Decoration:

  • Smartie mini eggs
  • Cadbury mini eggs
  • Cute little chicks

Method:

  1. Firstly, pre-heat your oven to 180C/gas 4. Grease the 20cm square tin with butter and line with baking paper.
  2. Put the butter and the chocolate into a bowl and set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until melted. Put the mixture into the fridge so that it cools down quickly.
  3. Break the eggs into a large bowl and tip in the caster sugar. Whisk the eggs and caster sugar for around 5-6 minutes with an electric mixer on maximum speed.
  4. Then pour the cooled chocolate mixture over the egg and sugar mixture and gently fold together.
  5. Sieve the flour and cocoa into the wet mixture and continue to fold the mixture gently until everything is combined.
  6. Pour the mixture into the brownie tin and place in the middle of the oven for 20 minutes.
  7. Whilst the cake is baking, cut the creme eggs in half (TIP: pour boiling hot water over the knife so that it cuts through the eggs easily). Crush a few of the mini eggs with a rolling pin but leave some whole.
  8. After the brownie has been in the oven for 20 minutes, take it out and place the creme eggs into the brownie. Then put it back into the oven for a further 5 minutes.
  9. Once baked and cooled down, scatter all the mini eggs over the brownie. Then place into the fridge for 1 hour to make sure that the brownie is firm.
  10. When the brownie is firm, decorate with the little chicks to get those Eastery vibes!
  11. ENJOY THAT BROWNIE

HEALTHY Easter Hamper

IMG_3447

HELLOOOOO IT IS SPRING and Spring means EASTER

If you’re anything like me then you will love any occasion to decorate… I am obsessed with decorating so of course there are bunnies, chicks and sheep in my room to celebrate the new season

Easter is pretty soon so I thought I would make an Easter hamper. I figured that there are people out there (which is v sad) who cannot eat chocolate for health reasons. AND also people who just wanna be fit and healthy (not me).

This hamper idea is perfect for people who want a healthy alternative to chocolate eggs!

FIRSTLY, you have to make the box look Eastery. To do this, I just ordered a plain box, some yellow ribbon, Easter tissue paper and ofc some colourful feathers from Paperchase, it was fairly cheap and you can get most of this stuff from supermarkets anyway. I mean just throw everything onto the box in whatever style you want so it looks like you’ve nicely vommitted Easter up onto a plain old box :))))

SO the food I picked was from Holland & Barretts, I do love a good shop on Holland & Barretts’ website as I am a sucker for offers and deals which they always have. Mostly everything I got was buy one get one free or 3 for 2……. I just love love love it and I got 10% off and a £5 voucher, dying in deal making heaven

Here is a quick list of what I got:

Flapjacks x3 (strawberry, chocolate & coconut), protein bars x4, vegan Easter milk and dark chocolate, Bounce energy bites, energy gels x2, ginger bites x2, yoghurt coated raisins x2, dried fruit and chocolate shots x4 and vegan sour snakes.

I also added some LUSH items as what is Easter without LUSH’s seasonal stuff? I got the chocolate lip scrub which tastes identical to Terry’s Chocolate Orange, it tastes so good. I also got a bunny mask shower jelly which was in the shape of a bunny, I just don’t know how anything can get better than that?? And of course an Easter egg bath bomb!

I HOOOOPE you are as OTT as me with every occasion and go all out this Easter 🙂
