Enjoy a cracking Easter break

The Easter holidays are fast approaching and we are all looking forward to a long weekend following the cold and dreary start to the year. Celebrating Easter is a perfect time to gather your family and friends and spend some quality time together at home, accompanied with great food and drink.

Depending on their ages, make it a little harder by using cryptic clues to direct them to the next hiding place, this will also make the hunt last longer!
Another classic is egg decorating. Let the kids turn your left over eggs into works of Easter art. You will need to help by blowing the eggs – and, if you crack some in the process, you can always whip up your favourite pancake or omelette! Make sure the eggs are at room temperature then poke a hole in each end with a needle, making one hole slightly bigger. Finally, blow through the small hole with the larger hole facing down into a bowl. Once the eggs are blown rinse them with water and place in an eggcup with the largest hole at the bottom. Now you’re ready to get the paints, pipe cleaners and sequins out and start decorating!

While the kids are happily playing, treat your guests to a sumptuous Vanilla Chill coffee that’s sure to get them talking. For each serving you’ll need:
Vanilla Chill
l 60ml Douwe Egberts Cafetiere Blend or for a quick but equally delicious result use Douwe Egberts Pure Gold instant coffee
l 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream
l 3 ice cubes
l 1 chocolate flake
l Put the coffee, ice cream and ice cubes into a blender
l Blend on full power for 15 seconds
l Pour into a glass and serve with a straw and a generous sprinkling of crushed flake!
