Sunday is Easter and so today is my last recipe to prepare you for it 😉 I almost can’t believe I’ve made more Easter recipes than Christmas ones… Oh boy, I’m not having my priorities straight. But I actually don’t think the amount of posts about a certain holiday should be important. It’s the fun you have doing it that counts 😀
I know I said Easter was coming in the size of Cupcakes but this last recipe is something different though. I didn’t plan it, I just came across this super awesome Easter idea on Little Sweet Baker where Lily shared her Easter Macaroons and I instantly knew I had to make them! They are cute, festive, super delicious, almost lactose free AND perfect for Easter of course!
I hope today’s blogpost can somehow make you forget about the horror in Brussels yesterday. Even if it’s just for one second. I really hope you can still find love and happiness in the little things in life.
And I do hope you’ll find my Easter Chick Cupcakes slightly amusing because they didn’t quite turn out the way I had hoped they would be…
The boyfriend always says my frosting looks like a pile of poo. It would have been great if that had been the case this time but alas. Meet my Easter Chicks:
I told you I’m in my Cupcake period, right 🙂 These Oreo Cupcakes are so good, you’ll want it before, during and after Easter 😉 The best part of this Cupcake probably is the Oreo/Milka chocolate egg on top. It’s soooo good!
Easter is coming close. I love Easter. The colours, the beginning of Spring and – of course – the chocolate 🙂 When I was a kid, I used to go to my grandparents and look for eggs in their gardens. And at home as well of course. I LOVED it! I believed in it for a very – very – long time because of my parents. I guess they loved me believing in the stories because one year, they painted bunny paws on the floor to make me believe Easter Bunny had been inside our house to deliver the eggs to us. What great parents I have!
You may have noticed it before but I’m really into Cupcakes these days… So Easter is coming in the size of Cupcakes this year! I’m not planning on making any other Easter recipes besides Cupcakes :p They are just so cute and fit the holiday perfectly 🙂
So, on the outside it looks like a normal Salted Caramel Cupcake:
Brussels Food Friends asked me to write a guest post for them and of course my answer was “YES!” 😀
It is all about Easter (although that, unfortunately, is already long behind us)
I hope you all had a very nice Easter! Hopefully with lots of chocolate Easter eggs! Although that habit seems to be typical for Belgium and The Netherlands. Other countries apparently hide cooked eggs, painted in all sorts of colours.
No matter what kind of eggs you’ve had, I hope you’ve enjoyed them!
No chocolate or cooked eggs for this top 5 though!
These bloggers have prepared some great dishes for Easter! Let’s see what they ate.
Alexia from Must Be Yummie made a whole Easter Brunch! I love her decorations! And I love her bunny too!
Sandra from Leeks and High Heels made lunch. And not just any kind of lunch! This Easter Lunch of hers is so perfect! Wish I had sat at her table…
Lieziepeasy decided to make something delicious as a count-down to Easter! Make sure not to miss her incredible Pull-apart bread with lemon. It looks so good!
“Easter weekend has been a weekend of over-eating”. Well, Lisa, I would have over-eaten myself too if I had been exposed to your delicious table! The meat, the pie, the donuts, … Oh my.
Last but not least: Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes ‘de luxe’ with Nutella frosting from our beloved Hap & Tap is so Easter! Why? Because she used Nutella’s Easter jar for this recipe! They look so so good! YUMM!
I hope you liked these posts as much as I do and may they inspire you for next year’s Easter! 😀
Have a delicious day ❤
Find me on
I hope you all had a great Easter!
I always thought every country, or at least the European ones, had the same Easter traditions but that turns out not to be the case!
We collect chocolate eggs the Easter Bunny and the Easter Clocks have thrown in our gardens whereas others collect painted boiled eggs…
Am I happy to live in the land of chocolate 😉
Seriously, if there is one thing I can’t live without, it’s got to be chocolate!
It’s almost Easter, so I had to do something with it.
I made some chocolate mousse and turned it into a perfect Easter surprise!
Believe me, it’s very easy 😉
I have a lot of books and a lot of recipes for chocolate mousse. Today I chose the recipe by Sofie Dumont.
She is a famous cook in Belgium and I really admire her. Yes, she is one of my inspirations.
(If you would ever read this, Sofie, I hope you like it :p)
So, let’s get started!
This recipe is for 4 people.
What do we need:
– Easter eggs (I chose two white ones and two milk chocolate ones)
– Little Easter eggs for the finishing touch
– 125 g dark chocolate
– 4 eggs
– 1 butter cube
– a pinch of salt
– piping bag
The first thing I did, was to take care of our Easter eggs. I carefully chopped off the heads with a knife. The eggs are suposed to stand straight so you might have to grate the eggs a little bit.
Now, we can make our chocolate mousse.
We need to melt the dark chocolate with the butter. You can use the microwave or au bain-marie to do so.
Split the eggs. We add the egg yolk to the melted chocolate and stir it with a wooden spoon to avoid the eggs to set.
Whip the egg white with a pinch of salt.
If your egg whites are stiff, carefully mix one or two spoons of them together with the melted chocolate.
Add the rest of the egg whites and mix it carefully together.
Now you can put it in the fridge for a couple of hours.
When the chocolate mousse is ready, fill the piping bag with it.
Now you can fill the Easter eggs and decorate them with a little Easter egg 🙂
Enjoy your Easter surprise!
Have a delicious day ❤
