MINI EASTER EGG CHEESECAKES

Well is everybody well and truly had their fill of Easter Eggs?  I say yes absolutely but my kids say no lol.

It seems that Easter began very early this year, in this country anyway.  I remember seeing Easter Eggs in the shops two days after Christmas, before the New Year had even begun.

I will admit to buying a sneaky easter egg at the weekends over the past couple of weeks. The Easter Bunny would not be pleased.

Now it’s true to say that this recipe is a great way to use up “left over chocolate” ha ha,  I can all ready her the screams of laughter from here.  In my house “there ain’t no such thing” as left over chocolate.

My Mini Easter Egg Cheesecakes are  so easy & fun to make. I promise it’s worth buying a couple of packets of mini eggs while their still available to make these little bites.

The filling could also be adapted to use other yummy ingredients – like Crushed Oreos, Smarties , M&M’s . I’ll leave it to your imaginations.

These Mini Easter Egg Cheesecakes  have been a firm favorite in our house over the years.  I used toasted coconut for a nest effect and lemon curd as a topping.

I have used Nutella as an alternative to the lemon curd and this worked just as well.

Here’s a fun fact – my son actually asked me this today

WHY DOES EASTER SUNDAY FALL ON A DIFFERENT DATE EVERY YEAR? – ITS TO DO WITH THE MOON

The death of Jesus occurred around the Jewish Passover, which is traditionally held on first full moon following the vernal equinox.

Easter changes dates every year as it falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon in the northern hemisphere’s Spring time. This is also known as the vernal equinox.

Once the date of the moon is known, Easter Day and the Easter holidays can be determined.

Next year Easter 2019 will fall on APRIL 21ST.
