Easter chick meets Colin the Caterpillar

The world’s most famous caterpillar is celebrating Easter with his good friend, the Easter chick.

Tuck into not one, but two creamy, chocolatey cakes – Colin is topped with a cracked chocolate egg decoration (thanks, Easter chick!), while his sidekick is covered with crunchy sprinkles. There may be one or two arguments about who gets which face and feet, though – are you #TeamColinTheCaterpillar or #TeamEasterChick?

Orange speckled egg blondies

Having friends round for an Easter gathering? Whip up this easy yet impressive bake using our orange choccy speckled eggs


  • 225g unsalted butter, cut into small cubes  
  • 100g white chocolate, chopped  
  • 250g light soft brown sugar 
  • 150g caster sugar   
  • 3 large eggs  
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract 
  • 325g plain flour 
  • 200g M&S orange choccy speckled eggs
  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/170°C fan. Grease and line a 20cm square loose-based cake tin with baking paper.
  2. Melt the butter and white chocolate in a saucepan over a medium-low heat. Stir in both sugars and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the butter is absorbed and the mixture turns a creamy toffee colour and looks smooth and glossy. Take off the heat and set aside.
  3. Whisk the eggs, the vanilla and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Whisk in the melted butter and sugar mixture until thoroughly combined, then whisk in the flour until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 20 minutes.
  4. While the blondie is cooking, cut half of the orange choccy speckled eggs into half.
  5. When the 20 minutes is up, take the blondie out of the oven and scatter the halved and whole chocolate eggs on top. Carefully press the eggs into the blondie mixture, and don’t worry if the surface cracks a little. Take care as the sides of the tin will be hot. Return to the oven for a further 10 minutes, or until the blondie is a pale golden-brown.
  6. Cool the blondie in the tin for at least 10 minutes before cutting into squares.

Banoffee bread and butter pudding

Our banoffee hot cross buns and sticky toffee sauce are a dreamy combination in this comforting pud


  • 250ml milk 
  • 250ml single cream  
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 80g M&S sticky toffee sauce, plus extra for serving 
  • 3 eggs, plus 2 extra egg yolks 
  • 60g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra to grease 
  • 8 M&S banoffee hot cross buns, halved  
  • 1 large ripe banana, sliced  
  • Ice cream or cream, to serve 


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C/140°C fan. Grease a dish with butter and set aside.
  2. Put the milk, cream, vanilla and sticky toffee sauce into a small saucepan over a medium heat and bring to just below a simmer.
  3. Place the eggs and egg yolks into a large bowl and whisk gently to combine (try not to incorporate too much air as you whisk). Pour over the hot milk mixture, whisking constantly until combined.
  4. Butter the hot cross bun halves and arrange them in the prepared pan with the crusts facing up, laying pieces of banana in between each half. Pour over the custard mixture and set aside for 15 minutes to soak.
  5. Cover the dish with foil and cook for 30 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 200°C/180°C fan, remove the foil from the dish and cook for a further 15 minutes, or until the pudding is golden brown and the custard has just set. Leave to cool for 15 minutes, then drizzle with sticky toffee sauce and serve warm with ice cream or cream.

Loaded Easter egg cheesecakes

Got Easter eggs to use up? With this clever recipe, you can fill them with an indulgent cheesecake mix


  • 2 hollow chocolate Easter eggs 
  • 150g digestive biscuits 
  • 50g butter, melted 
  • 150g mascarpone 
  • 100g M&S creamy soft cheese 
  • 4 tbsp icing sugar, sieved 
  • 200g double cream  
  • M&S chicky choccy speckled eggs, sweets and chocolate, to decorate  
  • M&S Belgian chocolate sauce, to decorate 
  1. Carefully separate the Easter eggs in half along the seam (use a knife dipped into a bowl of hot water to cut through the seam rather than slicing, as it may break the chocolate).
  2. Tip the digestive biscuits into a bowl or food bag and bash to crumbs with the end of a rolling pin. Stir in the melted butter until the mixture resembles damp sand. Spoon this into the Easter egg halves and pack down gently using the back of the spoon. Chill until needed.
  3. Mix the mascarpone, creamy soft cheese and icing sugar together in a medium bowl with a wooden spoon until smooth. In a separate bowl, beat the double cream to soft peaks using an electric whisk. Gently fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture, then carefully spoon the cheesecake filling over the chilled biscuit bases in the Easter eggs. Gently level the surfaces with a palette knife or spatula, then chill for at least 2 hours or overnight, until firm and set.
  4. Scatter the set cheesecake-filled eggs with chicky choccy speckled eggs and other Easter treats, then drizzle with the chocolate sauce.
