It’s Easter this weekend - hip hip hooray to that! Who doesn’t love receiving a mountain of chocolate and consuming it all in one sitting?
Not only that, Easter is a time to celebrate and spend time with loved ones (even if it might have to be in the garden this year). There’s no better feeling than surprising friends and family with thoughtful gifts so what better time to get baking than now! We’ve got a super easy and utterly delicious mini eggs cookie recipe that is sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.
