Easter is my favourite time of year, pastels and all-things-chocolate are definitely up my street. Whilst having a Pinterest browse, I kept seeing Easter recipes that I simply had to give a go. I definitely put my own spin on a few things though! Here are 4 Pinterest vs reality treats perfect for this weekend. Check out our Pinterest Nom Central board for more tasty treat inspiration!
1. Mini Egg cookies
Cookies aren’t the first thing that spring to my mind when I think ‘Easter’, but when I spotted these, I had to give them a go! Mini Eggs have pretty much become an Easter staple so they had to go into something! Okay, so as you’ll notice, my cookies are a little bit flatter than the others (my oven was on a little too high!) but I was assured they still tasted okay.

Olivia’s top tip: Add chocolate chunks in different sizes to give your cookies more texture
2. Easter Meringues
Meringue is a family favourite, and these easter themed ones are a great Easter Sunday pudding. (also meringues are low-fat, so are a little less guilty than the other options)
- Difficulty: Quite easy

Olivia’s top tip: Add strawberries or raspberries for a fruity touch.
3. Easter Cupcakes
Cupcakes are a core part of my baking repertoire, so I had to make some Easter specific ones! These are worth the effort, and make a great Easter gift for loved ones instead of an Easter egg.

Olivia’s top tip: You can get a specific multiple-opening buttercream nozzle from Hobbycraft.
4. Easter Bark
If you don’t see yourself as the next Mary Berry, then this is the recipe for you. It is so quick to make and looks really effective. I mean, you can’t go wrong with chocolate on chocolate, can you?!
- Difficulty: So easy
- Taste: 10

Olivia’s top tip: Use this recipe when trying to use up any leftover Easter chocolate, go wild with decorations!
