Easter... chocolate, long weekends & family = bliss!

Posted by Kiri Hider on

We love Easter - the super long weekend, chocolatey goodness and spending time together as a family. We decided many Easters ago to limit the number of chocolate and Easter eggs and instead let the kids choose one Easter egg each. This was a result of one year the kids getting so many Easter gifts from so many people it was ridiculous. We ended up letting them choose a few and took bag loads to the City Mission to share. 

So in keeping with this idea of enjoying gifting at Easter we have designed an Easter Gift Box that is ideal for sharing. Filled with Easter chocolate bars, chocolate spoons for a luxurious hot chocolate treat, melt in your mouth fudge and the cutest Easter biscuits - this Easter gift box offers a great selection to ensure that any chocolate craving is adequately provided for! 

As always you can create you your own Easter gift box with our build your own box service. We appreciate that not everyone shares our sweet tooth. Search our collection of online gifts and let us know what you like - we will put something together and email you a photo. It's a popular option to really personalise your own unique gift.

We will be doing a bit of baking over Easter - could not resist this simple Easter fridge slice, it reminds me of my favourite slice growing up. Let me know what you think if you make it! 

Easter Fridge Slice 

  • 395 gm can sweetened condensed milk
  • 100 gm chopped butter
  • 150 gm chopped dark chocolate
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa
  • 200 gm pack Tiny Teddy biscuits (or similiar)
  • 100 gm mini chocolate chip cookies
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped marshmallows
  • 50 gm small Cadbury oreo easter eggs 
  • 1/4 cup speckled eggs
  • 100's & 1000's to decorate

Grease and line the base and sides of a 16cm x 26cm slice pan, allowing the sides to overhang.

Combine the condensed milk, butter, chocolate and cocoa powder in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir for 2-3 mins or until chocolate and butter melt and mixture is smooth. Set aside for 5 mins to cool slightly.

Meanwhile, reserve 12 Tiny Teddy biscuits and 5 chocolate chip biscuits. Chop remaining combined biscuits and place in a bowl with the marshmallow. (Hint to cut marshmallows easily use scissors and dip in a bowl of warm water prior to cutting each marshmallow or very lightly coat the scissors in oil)

Pour the chocolate mixture over the biscuit mixture and gently stir with a metal spoon until just combined. Spoon into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Sprinkle with the reserved biscuits, Easter eggs and 100’s & 1000’s. Cover with plastic wrap. Place in fridge for 2 hours or until firm. Cut into pieces.
