Finish off the weekend by spending the bank holiday relaxing at home. Here are some tips from Jersey’s Bohemia restaurant’s Head Pastry Chef Ellen de Jager on how to use all those leftover Easter eggs. NB: Not suitable for the calorie shy!
1. Chocolate Croissants
Make or buy readymade croissant dough and stuff with leftover Creme or Caramel eggs. Once baked you’ll have warm croissants oozing with chocolate.
2. Chocolate Mug Cake
To fix that chocolate craving, melt butter and chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds. Beat the mixture until soft then whisk in with egg, sugar, flour and baking powder then microwave for one minute and 20 seconds.
3. Crème Egg Brownies or Cupcakes
Add left over crème eggs to cupcake or brownie mix for a gooey chocolate centre. Perfect for the ultimate chocolate lover and a great alternative to traditional Simnel cake.
