Being low carb doesn’t mean you have to miss out on treats like hot cross buns or chocolate eggs. There are brands like Green and Blacks that do delicious dark chocolate eggs. But do be careful when choosing chocolate, some brands might be dark, but they still have a lot of sugar in them! Always check the labels.
I have put together a hot cross bun / tea cake alternative. If you really want to make them extra indulgent you can add a couple of spoonfuls of dark chocolate pieces. Then toast them and cover with butter, heaven!
Unfortunately I don’t have an Easter egg mould to make my own eggs, and buying a mould doesn’t really count as essential shopping!
But I do have a big bag of 80% dark chocolate buttons which taste amazing, so I’ll make do with them!
Once the lockdown has ended I am going to look at getting some chocolate moulds and have a go at making my own chocolates. Maybe Liqueurs, with whisky or cherry brandy…
