Everyone knows that over Easter, we’re meant to consume our body-weight in chocolate. Those are the rules…it’s just as simple as that.
So, why not maximise your choccy intake by drinking the stuff as well?
Over on TikTok, a new trend is afoot, and we’re very into this one, folks. People are making their very own mini Easter eggs – but the nifty part is they melt into hot chocolate when warm milk is added.
Our personal fave recipe was shared by user, @thisisplanetfood, and uses Lotus Biscoff and white chocolate to make the Easter egg shell.
All you need to make the hot chocolate bombs is an egg-shaped mould (which you can bag online), a bar of white chocolate (they use Milky Way) and some Biscoff spread.
Then, for the filling, you’ll need mini marshmallows.
Check out their recipe below:
Biscoff Hot Chocolate Easter Eggs
- First, add together 250g of finely chopped white chocolate and 100g of Biscoff spread and heat for 15 second intervals in the microwave, stirring between each one
- Pour into a silicone egg mould and fully coat with no gap
- Refrigerate for 10 minutes, then carefully remove the hardened chocolate from the mould and fill some halves with a tsp of Biscoff spread per egg and mini marshmallows
- Warm the edges of the remaining halves by placing them on a plate sat over a bowl of boiling water
- Then, immediately put these halves on top of the filled halves and carefully stick them together
- Decorate however you like, and when you’re ready pop into a cup and top with hot milk!
Speaking to Twisted, Rebecca, who runs the TikTok and Instagram accounts, explained: “We love a bit of Biscoff [so] we had to make an Easter treat with it in!
“The recipe is adapted from the ‘hot chocolate bombs’ from our cookbook, which we created last year, as we noticed everyone loves a sweet treat”.
On social media, it’s clear people were very into the idea, as the recipe soon amassed over 4,000 ‘likes’ on the video sharing platform.
“This should sort your sweet tooth out,” said one follower to a friend over on their Instagram.
Whilst another simply wrote: “Omg”. We hard relate.
For real, though, how cute would these be to serve to guests over the Bank Holiday weekend?
