Easter Egg Hunt 🐰
It's not easter without an Easter Egg Hunt and we have some fun easter egg hunt ideas for you! If the weather is nice venture out in to the garden and make the most of the start of spring with some tricky hiding spaces - in a tree, between the grass or in the plant pots. Just remember not to out the chocolate in the sun or someone will be finding a very melted easter egg.
If the weather is not so cheerful bring your egg hunt inside with endless possibilities. You might think you know all the places in your home but you would be surprise. With endless cupboards, under the sofa, in the window sills, you can make the fun last for hours.
Don't forget to add some clues or even some riddles to make it tricky. Whether you are making an easter egg hunt for your children, partner or friends it is sure to be great fun.
Supplies you'll need is lots of chocolate and sweets! Or you can create an alternative egg hunt and hide other things, it's completely up to you. But if you are looking for personalised chocolate for easter, we have lots of bars of personalised chocolate perfect for hiding in your egg hunt! Above is our yummy Pick a Mix White Chocolate Easter Card.
You will also need some paper to write clues (maybe write where things are hidden in case you forget where they are!) and most importantly, especially for children, a egg hunt bag. You can shop our range of Easter Tote Bags here, super roomy and perfect for an easter egg hunt.
Easter Baking 🍰
Take your baking to the next level with Easter Themed recipes. Get crafty in the kitchen this easter and make some yummy treats to enjoy with a cup of tea. If you love chocolate and want to keep it simple you can make Chocolate Nest Cakes with our easy Nest Cake recipe:
- Shredded Wheat
- Chocolate (it can be baking chocolate or normal its up to you!)
- Mini Eggs/Decorations to put in your nest
It couldn't be easier to make these yummy chocolate nests simply melt your chocolate and crush up your shredded wheat throughly and combine untill the cereal is fully coated in chocolate. You don't have to use shredded wheat, you can use cornflakes or other cereal but shredded wheat gives the best nest like look! Once mixture is combined spoon into cupcake cases making a small well in the middle to pop your eggs or decorations. Add the mini eggs and then pop in the fridge to set for an hour or so!
