Easter egg biscuits recipe

You can either use chocolate to coat these biscuits, icing sugar - or both! Chocolate coating:

Category:

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet Arnotts Milk Arrowroot Biscuits
  • Lollies, sprinkles or hundreds and thousands for decorating

Chocolate icing:

  • 100g milk chocolate
  • 100g white chocolate

Normal icing:

  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • Food colouring of choice

Method:

You can either use chocolate to coat these biscuits, icing sugar - or both!

Chocolate coating:
Snap milk and white chocolate into squares and place in separate microwave safe bowls so you don't mix the two chocolates together.

Microwave each bowl on low heat for 1 minute until the chocolate has almost melted. Stir, and repeat on the same setting for 10 seconds at a time if the chocolate needs more melting. When it's runny, carefully spoon it onto the biscuits and spread using a knife.

Decorate with either lollies, sprinkles or hundreds and thousands

Icing:
Separate the egg white from the yolk and pour the egg white into a bowl. Using an electric beater, whisk until it forms stiff, meringue-like peaks. Sift in icing sugar until you reach a spreadable, yet not runny consistency. Add a few drops of food colouring if you wish.

Spread on biscuits and decorate with lollies, sprinkles or hundreds and thousands.

 

Notes:

  • This is a super fun Easter treat as the biscuits are shaped like Easter eggs!
  • This is a great recipe to make with kids as it's incredibly easy and they love decorating the biscuits with all sorts of lollies.
  • Don't get carried away with food colouring - unless you want really dark-coloured icing.
  • These biscuits make a fun Easter gift when wrapped in cellophane and tied with a ribbon.
