Easter Eton Mess recipe, Easter dessert recipeWant to wow the kids / your family and friends with an Easter dessert, but got neither the time nor the brain bandwidth to do something fancy? You need Easter Eton Mess.

Eton Mess has long been a favourite dessert of mine, both to eat and to make. Well especially to make because, in short, any fool can make it. Legend has it that it was first served up in the tuck shop of posh-o British boys’ school Eton, a mess of fruit and cream.

So how do you turn Eton Mess into Easter Eton Mess? With chocolate eggs of course! Want to try the recipe out for yourself? Here’s what you’ll need:

Easter Eton Mess Ingredients

Easter Eton Mess Ingredients

  • 1 x full size chocolate Easter egg
  • 1 x packet of mini eggs – Cadbury’s are the original, but Marks & Spencer do a very lovely alternative
  • 250ml whipping cream
  • 300g strawberries
  • 1 packet of meringues (use mini meringues and you can say they’re bunny tails, go on, knock yourself out)
  • 1 bottle of chocolate sauce (optional)

How to make Easter Eton Mess

Ideally you should make this dessert shortly before serving it, but if that idea fries your brain, get all the ingredients ready ahead of time, store the whipped cream in the fridge, then splodge it all together just before you serve it.
