While most of us are munching on Easter eggs one Leeds bakery has whipped up its very own eggs-tra special treat.

The team at The Sunshine Bakery, in Chapel Allerton, have taken our love of eggs to a whole new level by sprinkling their edible glitter to create a cracking chocolate treat.

The team have rustled up their very own Scotch eggs this Easter and they are already proving to be something of a hit.

Complete with chocolate brownies, digestive biscuits and Cadbury’s Creme Eggs the sweet treats are becoming something of a hit for customers.

And hundreds of the creations have already flown out the door.

Sunshine Bakery owner Becky Tobias, 45, told the Yorkshire Evening Post: “The creme egg is a bit of a phenomenon and we are very well known for our brownies, where we put creme egg on top of the brownie.

“I was trying to think of a way to incorporate that into something slightly different and that is where the idea for these chocolate Scotch eggs came from.

“They are very naughty.

“The eggs have proven extremely popular among our customers.

“I’ve already made more than 600 so far.”

And Becky has already had questions from customers about whether they will continue to stock them once Easter has finished.

She added:“People have asked us if we are going to keep making them after Easter.

“We might stock up on lots of creme eggs and or we may get some egg mould and make our own assorted caramel egg and then do them in a variety of different flavours.”

Becky, who used to be a customer at the store before taking it over, has nurtured her passion for bakery over the last few years.

She added: “I have only been baking for five years and it has always been a passion of mine.

“Before I took over the ownership of the cafe, I used to come in as a customer and I still can’t believe that it’s mine.”
