On Easter Sunday and Monday it’s traditional to have a lovely big meal with the family – and we know the perfect way to finish it off. If you’ve overdone it on the chocolate, a light creamy mousse, cheesecake or trifle is a nice end to a meal. If you just can’t get enough of the dark stuff (it’s only once a year), you can melt down some of the leftover Easter eggs to make a soft chocolate fondant, tart or some gooey brownies.

Light spring flavours like lemon and elderflower give your standard desserts a fresh twist and a scattering of fresh flowers, chicks or mini eggs on the plate will make it feel nice and seasonal.

So if you’re throwing a lunch for the family or visiting someone else, a freshly-prepared dessert is always a welcome treat. If you spot any recipes you like the look, pop them in your online recipe book so you can find them easily when it comes to cooking.
