Easy Easter puff pastry treat with chocolate eggs



With an adorable newborn now in our lives, finding time to do things beyond taking care of our baby or keeping up with chores can be a daunting task! So, with Easter around the corner, I wanted to find something easy to bake that was not only delicious but also would take less than 30-minutes to make.


Puff pastry is such a versatile ingredient for any sweet or even savory recipe and I even use it when making chicken pot pie. It's also fun to mold the pastry into different shapes, which inspired this easy Easter recipe!

 

INGREDIENTS


Puff Pastry

Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Dough Sheet (comes in a 2x pack)

1 cup brown sugar

1 Tbl cinnamon sugar

2 Tbl butter, melted

Cadbury Mini Eggs

Frosting (store bought or make your own buttercream frosting)


DIRECTIONS

  1. If previously frozen, thaw your puff pastry dough for at least 40 minutes until malleable. Once thawed, fold out one sheet onto a cutting board.

  2. In a bowl, stir brown sugar and cinnamon together with a spoon, set aside.

  3. Taking a pastry brush, paint the melted butter onto the pastry dough until the surface is covered.

  4. Next, sprinkle your brown sugar filling across the pastry sheet surface.

  5. Once covered, place the second pastry sheet over the first with the filling. Press down to secure and use a fork to crimp the edges.

  6. Using a pizza cutter or knife, slice long thing strips. One at a time, take a strip, twist each end opposite directions then roll into itself like a circle to create the nest. For the bunny, fold the twisted strand in half and twist again to form the bunny body and ears.

  7. Brush the assembled nests and bunnies with butter, then bake for 12 - 15 minutes.

  8. Once baked, take your store bought or homemade frosting and pipe little bunny tails or using a circular motion, cover the top of your nests.

  9. For a finishing touch, place Cadbury Mini Eggs on top of the frosting for a whimsical finish.
