Most of the time Easter desserts are based around chocolate, so these cute Easter desserts throw something a little different into the mix yet still satisfy the sweet tooth.

Make the honey joys into small baskets, then nestle some chocolate eggs or jelly beans into the centre.  They will look gorgeous on any Easter dessert table…..if they stay there long enough!
