This year we have gone away with friends and what better way to celebrate this joyful Easter season than to recreate the fabulous Cadbury’s Great British Egg Hunt, at home? We usually do the National Trust Cadbury’s egg hunt, Anglesey Abbey is our favourite as you get to explore the wonderful grounds. At home, it’s not so vast but we still had a lot of fun exploring and finding.
This is one of the yummiest recipes I have ever used for making those chewy cookies, you know the ones, like you get at good coffee shops or in the freshly baked section at supermarkets. This recipe also uses up all that chocolate you get from Easter eggs and a packet of Mini Eggs too. Obviously.
What better way to start off the Easter holidays than by getting together with friends and doing the National Trust, Cadburys Easter Egg hunt. Destination of choice Anglesey Abbey. It’s the second time we have done it there and both have been brilliant fun, Good Friday just happened to be extremely sunny and quite warm too – which was fabulous.
I was thinking of ways to use Creme eggs in my baking, I love Creme eggs and what with Easter just around the corner I thought I would experiment. Now, it is not the most perfect looking cake, I know that, but the thought was there and next time I will perfect my icing skills.

The outside is covered in chocolate icing and then Renshaw Melts to colour the outside to look like a Creme Egg wrapper. I made a video of me making the cake:
