Death by Muddy Bunnies

chocolate fridge traybake with cadbury's dairy milk and some Easter treats

The title is strange I know, but there is good reason.

This is a non-baked treat which Gill at the work makes for charity bake sales. It is heavenly but lethal (hence the death part of the name). It is chocolate with more chocolate and is so divine. I wanted to make it for my friend Claire who was visiting us at our new house for lunch one day, so Gill kindly passed me the recipe.

Claire is a Cadbury’s Dairy Milk fiend, she loves the stuff. Her brother literally sends her boxes of Cadbury’s chocolate at Christmas time. I knew Claire would love this particular treat as it is best when made with Dairy Milk. You could use other chocolate, but it really wouldn’t be the same.

Usually you make it with added Maltesers, but I wanted to ‘Easter’ it up a bit so used the Malteaster mini bunnies (hence the muddy bunnies bit) that are out at the moment and some micro eggs. These sadly weren’t Cadbury’s but you could use their Mini Eggs too for the full on effect.

I plonked the bunnies upright in the bath of chocolatey ‘goodness’ where they settled quite nicely. When Claire and her son Matthew came to visit us the following day, I made some sandwiches and other bits, but the ‘piece de resistance’ finale was the ‘Death by Muddy Bunnies’. Claire loved the wee bunny ears sticking up and thought they made a perfect handle with which to grab the pieces by.

Give this a try with or without the bunnies and mini eggs. If you are making this outwith Easter time, simply substitute 300 grams of regular maltesers, which you can halve or just pop in whole.

Either way this is a decadent ‘traybake’ which would be sure to go down well at your Easter bash or guaranteed to make a few bucks at your next bake sale!

    1. They go very fast anytime they make it to the office Emma, but are usually gobbled up at home first.

  6. That's a serious chocolate hit..... I laughed when I saw the title and then the photo..... It looks like the bunnies have been buried! I think I may have interpreted it a little wrong...... Oops!
