I try to squeeze gingerbread into every major holiday. It is just the tastiest biscuit to make and decorate and enjoy all yer round. We were blessed with the most amazing blue skies and warm weather today which meant we could enjoy our annual Easter Egg Hunt outdoors. This years’ Easter Egg Hunt was special as I made the sweetest gingerbread biscuits for the children to find! Gingerbread biscuits make a great alternative in an egg hunt to plastic eggs or sweets. Find out how we made them!
Our Gingerbread Easter Biscuit Hunt
I love to bake gingerbread biscuits, they are so quick and easy to make. I used my Miffy cookie cutter because she is one of the worlds most famous bunnies!
I cut a lot of bunny heads and placed them on a baking tray. With the leftover dough I cut out some small gingerbread eggs to go with the bunnies.
Gingerbread always makes the house smell delicious. I’ve baked a lot this Easter but this was one of the quickest and easiest things I made.
Then it was time to decorate the gingerbread Easter biscuits. As I wanted to use them for our Easter Egg Hunt I used white chocolate to number some of the gingerbread biscuits. I added simple eyes and a mouth to the remainder. With the gingerbread eggs I added a little more colour.
Then it was time to hide the gingerbread biscuits for our special Gingerbread Easter Egg Hunt! I hid them around the garden, making sure they were placed out of the reach of the pup! Then the kids were let loose to find them.
Any they found were replaced with a gingerbread bunny biscuit for them to keep! It kept them occupied for ages and we grown ups were able to munch on the little gingerbread egg biscuits whilst we watched them.
They made a fun alternative to previous Easter egg hunts and felt a little more eco friendly than anything else.
