Are you fed up of chocolate yet? I’m not but I’m getting there. Even my girls couldn’t finish their stash yesterday. There is a bowl of odd bits of shell and Lindt Bunny bottoms. I know it will all get eaten but it’s nice to have the excess to do a bit of baking with.
This recipe looks complicated but it honestly isn’t. It’s a pastry tart filled with chocolate mousse topped with chocolate krispie mixture and mini easter eggs.
Pastry making fits in with my marathon training and running schedule so I tend to make it as I need it. If it’s not your thing then just buy it. Seriously there are some great products in the supermarkets now that work really well so let’s not get all purist. I found this fabulous supplier on Amazon who does all sorts of shapes.
The chocolate mousse
The pastry case is filled with chocolate mousse and this is the simplest recipe I’ve found. No fuss with Italian meringues etc. Another super easy option is to make it with mascarpone. About 100g chocolate melted and mixed with 3 tablespoons of mascarpone.
Chocolate Krispie mix
Finally you’ve got the good old chocolate krispie cake mix on top except I have used Shredded Wheat to make it look more nest like but Rice Krispies and Cornflakes or an amalgamation of them all work well. whatever the children fancy using really.
Chocolate Easter Tarts
How do you use up your chocolate Easter Eggs? Or do you diligently eat your way through them?
