These Chocolate Easter Egg Biscuits are so versatile and the perfect little snack for the small and the grown up kids at Easter.

 You can prepare them ahead so easily in your Thermomix and store them in a biscuit tin for up to two weeks. If you are looking for something super quick and easy to prepare for Easter, these Chocolate Easter Egg Biscuits are just perfect. 

They are good fun for the kids and grown ups too. Did you know you can use the TM5 measuring cup to cut out Easter egg shapes without having to go out and buy your own Easter egg cookie cutter.

 This recipe can even be adapted to be gluten free and vegan. All you need to do is swap the butter for vegetable spread and use gluten free plain flour instead. So easy and so adaptable.
