A foodie shares a cheesecake Easter egg recipe online, and the chocolate dessert is going down a treat on Facebook

Easter is one of my favorite holidays, right alongside Christmas. Not only do I love the reason for the holiday and celebrating Christ’s resurrection, but I also love that it’s usually spent with family.

Not to mention the fun celebration around it. Who doesn’t love a furry Easter bunny and egg hunts?

And every year, we’re left with lots of Easter eggs leftovers.

Luckily, one woman has come up with a brilliant (and delicious) idea to use them up: Easter egg cheesecakes!

Sharing her recipe on Facebook, this woman explains that her recipe isn’t your average cheesecake—it’s much easier.

All you need to create this little piece of chocolatey heaven is two hollow chocolate eggs, digestive biscuits, butter, double cream, condensed milk and plain chocolate.

You can also add some mini chocolate eggs as a topping if you wish. This recipe really couldn’t be any simple, even for novices like me.

Speaking about her recipe, the woman shared on the Extreme Couponing & Bargains UK Facebook page:

“Cheesecake Easter Eggs with no Cheese.”

“Great for baking with kids. No cooking involved, except for melting chocolate, which I did in a microwave. Enjoyyy.”

Here’s what you need to make this perfect little Easter dessert.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Easter eggs
  • 200g digestive biscuits
  • 80g butter
  • 275ml double cream
  • 1 tin of condensed milk
  • 2 bars of plain milk chocolate

Instructions

  • Crush up your biscuits, before adding melted butter to create a sand-like texture
  • In a separate bowl, whip up your cream and fold in melted chocolate
  • Add condensed milk into your creamy chocolate mix and stir in well
  • Arrange the cheesecake in half a hollow Easter egg
  • Lay your biscuit base on the bottom and pour in your cream mixture
  • Decorate however you wish, such as with mini eggs
  • Set in the fridge for 2-4 hours – then you’re ready to eat the Easter puddings!

As you can see, this recipe is super easy to make, and the end result looks delicious.

And since the woman shared the recipe on Facebook, fellow home cooks are eager to give the recipe a go.

Her post is now racking up more than 4,900 likes on Facebook—as well as thousands of comments.

Many raved about the idea, with one responder gushing:

“These look nice.”

Another said:

“Oooo another one to give a go.”
