What would Easter be without Cadbury's Mini Eggs?! For years out here in Singapore, it was very hard to find any Easter eggs at all. So I used to have to go to a speciality German supermarket where they sold chocolate bunnies. But now most supermarkets have a reasonable selection...I even spotted Marmite eggs the other day...! But Cadbury's Mini Eggs have probably been here the longest...now, year round...so they have always played a major roll in our Easter celebrations. Easter baskets filled with them, little cornflake nests with them popped inside, cakes smothered with them.
Yellow Cadbury's Mini Eggs popped in an old jam jar with a scrap of material and ribbon for the lid. So easy, but a cute little gift.
It's currently school holidays, so we are using some of the time to think ahead to Easter. Therefore, I thought I would use the idea, (set out in my blog about environmentally friendly present wrapping ideas: http://www.hoppingharesparties.com/wrapping-up-2016-in-eco-style/ ), of using old jam jars to hold mini eggs. I think they make lovely little gifts! I made them with my 7 year old, Amber. Needless to say, she really enjoyed sorting all the colours....and eating all the purple ones that I chose not to use...!
Pink Cadbury's Mini Eggs..... and Easter nests made with cornflakes, Mars bars and a selection of Cadbury's, Mark & Spencer's and Lindt eggs..anything we could get our hands on...!
I'm not sure what it is about Cadbury's Mini Eggs! For sure there are far more sophisticated things on the market, with vastly superior chocolate. Maybe its a nostalgia thing. Or maybe they are actually really good...! I am green juicing at the moment and all I know, is that I WANT THEM! I see them sitting comfortably in their little jars, begging me to eat them! But, I guess by the time Easter actually arrives, I might have earned the right to have one or two...or 100!
