If your household is anything like mine, the kids will get more chocolate than they can possibly eat at Easter.
If you are anything like me, you will need the chocolate removing from the house, before you end up eating it all yourself when the kids have gone to bed.
So why not get them cooking and bake some yummy cookies. You can use any chocolate you want, crush up some Easter egg shells, crunchies, mini eggs - just get experimenting. Middle man helped me make these, using some left over chocolate from baking cakes for big man's school cake sale.
100g light brown soft sugar
125g caster sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
225g self raising flour
pinch of salt (leave this out if you have used salted butter)
Around 200g of chocolate of your choosing, we used some mini eggs and crushed bar of choclate.
If you are making flowers - some creme egg minis cut in half.
Oven set at 180°C
Cream the butter and sugar together, then add the sugar, egg, vanilla extract and salt.
Sieve the flour and mix
Crush the chocolate. We put ours in a freezer bag and middle man attacked it with a rolling pin
Mix the chocolate into your cookie dough
Make into cookies - we had some flower and rabbit cookie cutters but you can just make round balls and squash them.
We used chocolate beans to make the rabbits eyes and tail and half a mini Cadburys creme egg to make the centers of the flower cookies. Bake for around 10-12 mins.
Take out of the oven, let them cool and then eat!
The boys gobbled these up before I had chance to take a photo of them eating them! The only thing better than eating them was middle man saying "I like helping Mummy"
