Mini Egg Tiffin

Last year a few fellow bloggers made this Mini Egg Tiffin and my plan was to make it too. Unfortunately for some reason I never got round to making it. I had forgotten about the recipe and this week while browsing for Easter ideas I stumbled upon it once again and couldn't wait to make it. This is very similar to the Malteser Traybake, only difference is it doesn't have melted chocolate which is exchanged for cocoa powder in this version. This is super easy and quick to assemble, an ideal Easter recipe for kids to make. I have a feeling this won't last until the weekend, not with hubby working from home all this week! I'm already planing on making another one for when my son and his family come over to celebrate Easter Sunday with us.


Mini Egg Tiffin

Fills 1 x 1lb tin

Ingredients
85g butter
2 tbsp golden syrup
2 tbsp cocoa
170g digestives, crushed (I blitz them in a food processor)
170g mini eggs, lightly crushed
30g mini eggs, left whole

Gently melt butter and golden syrup in large pan. Stir in cocoa, digestives and crushed mini eggs.

Line a 1lb loaf tin with cling film. Press mixture into tin then press the whole mini eggs into the top. Refrigerate until set.

Ooooh, I have all the ingredients, I just need to find the time to make these now! I love Cadbury's mini eggs, there's something so addictive about them and this looks like a fab way to use them.

Mmm this looks yummy! Definitely bookmarking for next year, I have been wondering about an alternative to the usual chocolate cornflake nest cakes. My mini eggs don't always survive long enough to make it in though.. :) Happy Easter!
