I had got quite an Easter collection already, so thought the best place for them would be in a big old slab of more chocolate. This is a no bake, rocky road type of treat with a lot of Easter goodness on top.

I love coconut ice, it reminds me of my childhood and I’m not proud to say I can eat a whole block of it in one go. In fact that is exactly what I was doing when I pondered the idea of making it myself. After a bit of googling I found a recipe on BBC Good Food (click here to view) and realised that it was in fact astonishingly easy and only requires 4 ingredients. Hooray!
