Servings 12


  • 150 gm pure icing sugar 1 cup
  • 200 gm unsalted butter chopped
  • 100 gm dutch cocoa 1 cup
  • 100 gm plain flour 1 cup
  • 2 teaspoons Silver sprinkles
  • 2 reaspoons coloured sprinkles
  • 1 packet easter eggs mini


  • Put all of the ingredients into a food processor and blitz till they gather into a ball. No longer as the dough will get warm and possibly tough. Just combine
  • Push into a paper lined brownie tray. Push the dough evenly to the edges. I used the base of a glass to smooth the rough bits.
  • Mark out the size that you would like to cut the dough. This will be cut when the shortbread is baked. 12 fingers or smaller pieces.
  • Sprinkle the dough with a selection of sprinkles or coloured sugar. Push gently into the dough to ensure they stick. This also creates a nice crunch
  • I chilled mine for a couple of minutes before baking, just to rest them
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes, Cool completely before turning out and cutting
