This Easter I’m so excited to be partnering with Egg Farmers of Canada for their annual #Eastertaining campaign. After all, eggs are an essential ingredient in our kitchen. Whether I’m baking cookies, making shakshuka for breakfast, or whipping up pancakes on the weekend, eggs are an essential part of our everyday lives.
Because eggs are such a staple in our fridge, it’s important for us to know and learn where they come from. In Canada, there are over 1,000 egg farmers and farming families across every province (and even the Northwest Territories!) that produce fresh, local, high-quality eggs every single day.
The best part? I don’t have to go out of my way to get them. Thanks to the Canadian system of supply management, when I purchase eggs at my local grocery store I know I’m supporting local farmers which is something I’m passionate about – I just look for the Canada Grade A symbol!
To get prepped for Easter, this weekend I baked a few spring desserts that I can’t wait to share including Egg Farmers of Canada’s delicious Sunny Side Up Pavlova recipe that’s so cute and SO perfect for Easter!
To be honest, I’ve only ever baked meringue twice, maybe three times in my life. Meringue rarely ever works out for me, it either deﬂates, dries out or get way too golden. I just want them to be crisp on the outside and nice and chewy on the inside and, GUESS WHAT, this recipe does just that! So If you’re looking for a dessert that will impress your family this Easter, you NEED to try this pavlova recipe!
If you’re intimidated by the thought of meringues, don’t be! This pavlova recipe is easy and foolproof! Always start with room temperature eggs and make sure to clean your mixing bowl and whisk with white vinegar. These take a few hours to bake and cool but overall, they’re pretty low maintenance. Plus, you can bake them a couple days in advance of any #Eastertaining.
Because I have two young nieces who both love baking, I thought it would be a fun idea to add these cute little coconut bunnies as a garnish! It’s a great way to get kids excited in Easter activities and they’re delicious! Also, if you guys know me, you know how obsessed I am with anything coconut!
These coconut bunnies are super easy to make, all you need are:
• white chocolate balls
• white chocolate melts
• shredded coconut
• sugar cookie candies for tails
• bunny paws
Start by melting the chocolate melts (these are good because after they set, they won’t melt at room temperature) in the microwave at 30 second intervals. With the toothpick, poke it into the centre of the white chocolate ball. Roll it in the melted chocolate and then roll it in the shredded coconut. Let it set for 15 minutes at room temperature or pop it in the fridge for 5 minutes. Use the melted chocolate as glue to stick on the bunny tails. That’s it 🙂
I cannot wait to re-make these for Easter dinner! It’s a whimsical twist on a classic dessert and I think my nieces will love helping me make these little coconut bunnies as much as they’ll enjoy eating them!
To make yourself, head over to the Egg Farmers of Canada website for the complete Sunny Side Up Pavlova recipe. I promise your family will love it! 🙂 If you do make this Easter treat, make sure to share on social and tag #Eastertaining so we can see your beautiful creations!
