Easy No Bake Easter Chocolate Slice with a crunchy shortbread biscuit base and a creamy milk chocolate later, topped with chocolate Easter eggs.
Every year for Easter, I am choosing a special dessert recipe to make together with my daughter. For years, when she was smaller, I was looking for really easy, basic recipes so she can also be involved in all the steps till the end.
This year I am super happy as she is older, 10 now that we can finally try something else, a little bit more advanced.
