The Busy Baker also worked Mini Eggs into her dessert, this time a chocolate brownie parfait. Chewy brownie pieces, chocolate whipped cream, and Mini Eggs – it’s as easy as that! You could also substitute in some chocolate mousse, crushed meringue or anything else that takes your fancy. And the idea to serve in glasses is genius, as you can really see the layers.
Look at this layered cheesecake from So Fab Food – packed full of M&Ms and delicious goodness! Elegant and decadent enough for grown-ups, but with a serious fun factor for the kids too. So Fab Food used graham crackers for the crust, but crushed digestives or Oreos would work too.
