Our favourite chocolate recipes to make with kids this Easter
There’s nothing like being a kid at Easter: from waking up and finding a lot of chocolate at the end of your bed to egg hunts and the ever-elusive Easter bunny.
If you’re spending quality time with the kids (or grandkids) this Easter, what better way to bond than by making some tasty treats!
Below we’ve hand-picked some of our favourite chocolate recipes from the NEFF kitchen.
The only thing better than one type of chocolate is three! And when it comes to an Easter treat, these triple chocolate Easter muffins tick all the boxes. Get your kids involved in the process by asking them to measure and combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl or carefully mix wet ingredients. Older kids could also help melt the chocolate on your induction cooktop, with your supervision. When perfectly baked using NEFF’s CircoTherm® function, have fun decorating with chocolate-coated strawberries (that look like carrots). And don’t forget to lick the spoon at the end!
It’s gooey choc caramel goodness in one blissfully sweet square. And with lots of mixing and layers, it’s fun to make with kids! Ask your helpers to lend a hand with beating the mixture, or take turns layering the brownie batter and dulce de leche (also known as caramelised milk). The best bit? It can be whipped up in under 35 minutes using your NEFF induction cooktop and oven with CircoTherm® function – meaning your kids won’t have to wait too long to try their creation either.
This is one the whole family can enjoy making and eating – together! If you’re catering for the extended family this Easter, why not get them involved in the deliciousness too? Get all the cousins together and delegate cracking the eggs, mixing and whisking. Get your little chefs to set a timer then put the finishing touches (icing sugar, ice-cream or cream) on when ready to serve!
Looking for something special to pop in your Easter egg hunt basket this year? These bunny (and other) shaped cookies taste as good as they look – and they’re lots of fun to make too. Get the kids to help cream the butter, sugar and vanilla – or let their imaginations run wild with different shaped cookie cutters. Once baked and ready, get creative with melted chocolate and sprinkles. If you’re feeding many little (or big!) mouths, bake a big batch using the multiple levels of your NEFF oven and the CircoTherm® function, which ensures even cooking results.
Cakes are the go-to desert for any situation – and this chocolate-packed recipe is the perfect addition to your Easter menu! Invite little helpers to shift all the dry ingredients together, or let your bigger kids measure, pour and whisk the wet ingredients themselves. And with your NEFF Slide&Hide® oven, which has a disappearing door, there’s more room for all the kids to move about and safely keep an eye on their creation! All that’s left to do is enjoy!
