Easter is a time for bunnies, eggs, and chocolates — lots of chocolates.
Easter is an absolutely fun time for the kids, but after an entire day of egg hunts, games, and Pinterest-worthy Easter crafts, it’s so nice to just kick back, relax, and enjoy something fit for an adult.
Yep, Easter is for adults also! We have here a list of Easter recipes — appetisers, main courses, and desserts — that are perfect for adult consumption. Don’t worry; we didn’t forget the Easter cocktails!
I’ll warn you now – they are not a frugal dessert to make – they are strictly for special occasions only – but they do taste a-maz-ing. It will seriously be the best thing you have ever put in your mouth.
They taste just like a hot cross bun, all the spices and the hint of orange, but you feel a little less guilty for eating 4 of them!
Who would have thought something this divine takes literally less than 20 minutes to make?
Because who said beer couldn’t be pretty?
What better way to enjoy the night after a day of chasing children on Easter Egg highs? Don’t forget to add a nip of rum or brandy!
Carrot juice is fresh and delicious, so why not take it to the next level?
This drink is not only pretty but also delicious! Plus, it’s perfect for when you have a tonne of speckled eggs at home!
Because it has two of my favourite things ever, Baileys and hot cross buns, I declare this as the best cocktail ever created by man.
Don’t be afraid to mix it up with milk or even white chocolate, or some food colouring. We’ve seen some great variety from our readers, and we love it!
This is certainly the most adorable martini I’ve seen in my lifetime!
This is the perfect Easter brunch recipe, but no one’s stopping you from serving it during dinnertime.
These are a slightly adapted version of Julia Child’s French Glazed Carrots. They are lovely with casseroles or lamb shanks!
14. Glazed Ham
Glazed ham is not just for Christmas. It’s also perfect for your Easter dinners.
They’re a modern twist on the classic carrot cake, topped with a stunningly smooth cream cheese frosting. People will beg for these cupcakes once they’ve tried them, trust us on that.
If you’re looking for a new way to cook your leg of lamb, then you must check this recipe out!
Oh my goodness, these look so delicious you wouldn’t want to share!
18. Cheesecake Eggs
You’re probably already tired of Easter eggs by nighttime, but these yummy Easter eggs are begging to differ.
Another use for your Easter candy — something you wouldn’t want the kids to know about.
These chops are simply divine. They’re full of wonderful flavours, and go perfect with some roasted vegetables, some mash, or a nice salad.
