These must-try Easter dishes will have you drooling in no time!

The beautiful festival of Easter is around the corner, and if you love to celebrate festivals, you sure as hell love festival food. Unfortunately, this time nearby restaurants and shops won’t be hosting an Easter feast due to the lockdown. But let’s turn that frown upside down and prepare Easter dishes at our own homes!

Although, Easter preparations are different in different cultures, the desserts and food decorations pretty much remain the same. Here are some of our selective recipes to prepare Easter food at your place –

1. Chocolate Easter Eggs
Plain ol’ chocolate Easter eggs can go a long way. If you’re a mighty crafty, you can even decorate them by yourself!

Are you doing the last minute choccie making too today? ? I feel like I’ve known Easter has been coming for weeks but only today kinda went “oh” ?? Am I buying family choccie this year? Or making it? Or neither coz we’re all chocoholics and buy our favs every week anyway ? Well.. if ur wondering it’s a combo of all plus I’m baking a double decker rich chocolate cake that’s healthy for us health-nuts in the fam, yet tastes naughty enough for my brother in-law who would be happy as a pig in mud if I gave him nutella and timtams ?❌ However… these DIY choccies are so damn good so go make em this arvo! ✨1 cup cacao butter ✨1 cup cacao powder ✨1/4 cup rice malt syrup ✨1 heaped Tbsp crunchy peanut butter • Melt • Stir • Pour • Chill • Eat . Tip: Rice malt is heavy and sinks in a choccie recipe unless you have something equally as heavy to cling too, like nut butter. I was out of my usual sweetener of choice, maple ? syrup, otherwise I would have used that, and no nut butter ?? But who doesn’t love a good choc + PB combo anyway ☺️???? . . . #eastereggrecipe #recipe #darkchoc #organic #raw #health #nourish #jerf #sugarfree
