Easter Mess

I love desserts that are easy to put together and Eton Mess is a good example of this. Traditionally consisting of broken-up meringue, whipped cream and fresh strawberries; it’s deliciously light and simple.

Today I decided to put a fun twist on a classic and create an “Easter Mess”. I kept the meringue and fresh cream but replaced the fruit with an assortment of Easter chocolates. This is so rich, creamy and indulgent — perfect for this weekend!

The following guidelines will make 4 generous portions. I used a few mini Malteaster bunnies, a couple of handfuls of Mini Eggs and one Cadbury’s Caramel Egg. Roughly chop the egg and bunnies. Pop the Mini Eggs in to a plastic food bag and bash them with a rolling pin until they break up but don’t lose their pastel colour.

Whip 250ml of cream until it holds its shape. Gently fold in the crushed chocolate bits. Break up 4 meringue nests and add them to the mix. Stir well and then divide the mixture out. Use pretty dishes, ramekins, jam jars…whatever you have handy. To finish them off nicely, top each portion with any leftover Easter sweets you may have — so irresistible!
