18 brilliant Mini Egg recipes you’ll want to eat right now
As far as I’m concerned the time around Easter, when Mini Eggs are on sale, is the best time of the year. I know other people feel the same, there was even an official petition calling for Mini Eggs to be on sale all year round. I signed it but apparently it was deemed an issue that is “outside the responsibility of the government”. Pah.
Just one crunch of a Mini Egg sugary, pastel-coloured shell and milky Cadbury’s chocolate and you know it’s impossible to stop at one… bag.
You don’t have to enjoy these little beauties on their own, make the most of the short-lived Mini Egg season and use them in everything from cheesecake to fudge, brownies to ice cream.
