HEALTHY CHOCOLATE EASTER TREATS

I absolutely adore Easter and I wanted to make some healthy chocolate Easter treats. Just love it. It is a sign of Spring, a fresh start and new life. The sun comes out, flowers are in bloom, little lambs are being born and of course it is my Birthday! I have two super fond Easter memories..

  1. My nana’s sister and her husband came to our house when I was around 8, with HUGE baskets full of eggs. We were never ones to really indulge as children. Chocolate and sweet things were treats and part of a balanced diet not everyday things. So to get a basket brimming we were all super excited. They were of course put on the top shelf out of reach. However we found a way, as kids do.
  2.  My 2nd best Easter memory was when I took my little cousin to France. Here we had all the amazing French chocolatiers chocolate eggs and it was to die for. I am in love wit kinder eggs and over there they have one the size of your face. We then had lunch at my aunties who had a huge garden and set up a big hunt. I was a great day.

Easter is just a day in a series of sweet treats and indulgence. It really is another Christmas in my eyes but with better weather and no presents, but waaaaay more chocolate. As kids I used to love making Easter treats, especially egg nests. I mean what child doesnt?! Yet I thought this year there has to be a bit more of a healthier way to enjoy these celebrations. I have recently been sent more of my fave chocolate from Love Cocoa – I also had loads of other bits I wanted to experiment with. Like the new box of NutriBrex I just bought along with some delicious berries and my big box of Cocofina oil. All egg nests need an egg right, however I wanted to find an alternative to mini eggs, so popped into H&B and got some yogurt almonds which totally did they trick. They looks yummy right… well here is the recipe.

HEALTHY CHOCOLATE EASTER TREATS

1 bar of Love Cocoa sea salt dark chocolate
2 broken down Nutri-Brex
1 sachet of Cocofina coconut oil
A handful of Goji berries
Yogurt covered almonds
A handful of dried cherries

HEALTHY CHOCOLATE EASTER TREATS

Break up the bar of chocolate and set in a glass bowl. Place into a pan of boiling water.
Allow the chocolate to slowly melt and add in the coconut oil.
Once all melted add the nutribrex, goji berries and cherries.
Mix together, spoon into muffin cases.
Place your almond egg on top.
Pop in the fridge to harden up.
Enjoy your Easter

    My ultimate easter treat is surprisingly something very simple. I love to sit down on Easter Sunday after dinner with a cup of tea and a mini eggs cake – have you ever tried one? They’re honestly the most delicious thing I’ve ever tasted. Love this post!

    • Lolamia says:

      Oh dont get me started on those cake I used to eat like a box! That like buttercream in the middle is just to die for! x

    I love the look of these Easter treats, also loved reading about your Easter memories! I’d love to make these, as when I usually eat Easter nests, I feel so guilty every time!
