Mini Eggs are possibly the best part of Easter baking and eating. The gorgeous milk chocolate eggs with sugar shells, decorated in their iconic pastel colours are so tempting and delicious. No wonder the UK eats hundreds of millions of packets each year. Mini Eggs are versatile for creating delicious Easter recipes so I’ve rounded up the best Recipes Using Mini Eggs from the best food bloggers for you this Easter.
First of all, I love mini eggs. I am definitely finding that I am a tad addicted. The smell of them, as you open a packet, is mouthwatering. The chocolate inside is smooth and silky they are a joy to eat on their own before you add them into recipes.
I’m always thinking about different ways I can use them in my sweet treats. This year I have created so many new recipes using them which you can find in my Easter recipe section.
The UK spends over £299 million on Easter egg chocolate each year. It is my belief that a lot of that spending is on Mini Eggs. If given the choice I would definitely pick mini eggs recipes over creme egg recipes.

Where can I buy mini eggs?
Everywhere. Mini eggs are never out of stock in my local supermarkets. They’ve been a great way to stay busy in the kitchen while on lockdown. They appear between Christmas and new year and normally run out a few days before Easter.
If you want to buy extra they store really well if they are kept in the packet in a cool dry place. You can even keep them in the freezer but as long as they somewhere cool they will last long past their use by date.
