We love chocolate day! Or Easter, as it’s sometimes called. Keep reading for creative chocolate ideas for little kids and big kids alike, plus fun ways to spend time with family and friends over the holidays.
We love a good egg hunt as much as the next person, but there’s no reason to limit yourself to one kind of chocolate when the Thermomix offers you limitless chocolatey possibilities. Making the goodies from scratch instead of buying them (for often exorbitant prices) can add a whole new dimension of fun to the celebration. Involve the kids on the Saturday afternoon — getting them to work for their treasure hunt will make it all the more exciting and satisfying.
We love replacing the premade chocolate eggs with homemade chocolate treats, individually packaged and hidden around the house and garden. Try our chocolate brownies, white chocolate and cranberry cookies or baked doughnuts with chocolate glaze from Quick Fix: Every Occasion. Wrap them in clear cellophane bags or up the anticipation by hiding them in cutely coloured boxes.
Even if you’ve outgrown the treasure hunt phase, there’s nothing stopping you from indulging on April 5th! Why not try these tasty chocolate treats for the table:
