A big hello from our Easter chick Graham!
This week, the Glutafin team have been making some simple Easter inspired bakes to help keep your children busy during the school holidays.
We think that Graham needs some friends! Follow the recipe below and email your creations to firstname.lastname@example.org!
60g Glutafin Gluten Free Cornflakes (This will depend on how large you would like your chick to me/ how large your mould is)
180g Gluten Free Milk Chocolate* (This will depend on how large you would like your chick to me/ how large your mould is)
1 x 50g packet of Cadbury's Mini Eggs
2 x Large White Chocolate Buttons
2 x small milk chocolate buttons
50g Marzipan (we used yellow)
1 x white chocolate icing pen for decoration
2 x Easter Egg Moulds
1. Melt the chocolate in a large bowl over a saucepan of boiling water.
2. Next pour the cornflakes into a medium sized freezer bag and crush until all flakes are much smaller - this will help create a much more rounded egg shape.
3. Fold the crushed cornflakes into the melted chocolate and combine.
4. Spoon the cornflake mixture into your Easter egg moulds.
5. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
6. Take out of the fridge and leave to set for a further hour. Don't leave the cornflake mixture in the fridge for too long otherwise condensation occurs which will turn your chocolate a lighter colour!
7. In the meantime roll out the marzipan with a rolling pin. With a sharp knife free hand the shape of two feet.
8. When the cornflake mixture is completely hard you can begin to decorate! Place the egg shape onto your marzipan feet.
9. Using your chocolate icing pens stick the white chocolate buttons where you would like the eyes to be. Then, place the smaller milk chocolate buttons directly on top. You may then wish to place a small white dot with your icing pen on the milk chocolate button like we have shown in the image above.
10. Finally add the nose and wing details - you may also want to add some detail to the feet!
This recipe makes a great Easter gift for a loved one!
As always, we love to hear from you.
