Mint Aero Traybake Recipe | Easter Bakes 2024!

Hello lovelies,

I know that typically mint aero isn’t classed as ‘Easter Chocolate’ but let’s be honest, chocolate is chocolate, no matter the occasion and this traybake would be the perfect sweet treat to share with loved ones this Easter. That’s a fact!

There is something so beautiful about the combination of mint and chocolate. It pairs beautifully with one another and I’ve got to say, mint areos are definitely up there for a favourite chocolate of mine. Anyone else the same?

Therefore, it was a no brainer that I had to use mint aero when deciding on what bakes to create this Easter. Aero had to have its time to shine and shine is exactly what it does in this bake!

This is such a simplistic bake which is what I love about it. It’s quick and easy to make, it requires 0 (yes 0!) baking, it has a real kick of minty goodness and melts in your mouth like butter. Honestly, what more could you ask for?

So, if this traybake has caught your eye and got you salivating profusely, you know the drill. Keep on scrolling below and you’ll find everything you need to know on how to make this recipe.

How To Make The Areo Traybake:

  • Firstly, gather together the equipment and ingredients and line a 8inch square baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Secondly, place the 200g of digestive biscuits into a ziplock bag and using a rolling pin, break the biscuits into crumbs by bashing them.
  • Next, in a large saucepan, over a medium heat, add the 100g of unsalted butter and 100g of golden syrup , stirring frequently until the butter has fully melted.
  • Next, add 150g of milk chocolate and 150g of dark chocolate into a microwavable bowl, place into the microwave and in 20 second blasts, blast the chocolate until it has fully melted.
  • Pour the melted chocolate into the saucepan with the butter and golden syrup, and stir well to combine.
  • Now, add the crushed digestive biscuits and stir well again.
  • Transfer the mixture into your prepared baking tin, smoothing the mixture down into a compact, even layer, then set aside for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes is up and the traybake has cooled, press 125g of aero bubbles all the way down into the biscuit layer before smoothing over the top again with the back of a spoon.
  • Set to one side to allow the traybake to cool completely.

How To Decorate The Areo Traybake:

  • In the melted white chocolate, add a couple of drops of green food colouring and mix together until the chocolate is coloured green.
  • Place alternating spoonfuls of the milk and green coloured white chocolate all over the top of the traybake.
  • Now, using a skewer, swirl the chocolates together to create a marbled effect.
  • Once marbled, place the traybake into the fridge and chill for 5 minutes, before removing and placing the remaining 125g of aero bubbles all over the top of the chocolate.
  • Then, place the traybake back into fridge and allow to chill for 2-3 hours.
  • Finally, once chilled, using a sharp knife, cut the traybake into small squares.
