“We all love a good mud cake hack, right? I’ve put together this chocolate packed Easter mud cake for less than $40, making it a great budget Easter celebration dessert,” she says.

“Without meaning to brag, I think this cake looks fabulous without requiring much effort at all to put together - which is an added bonus over Easter when you are wanting to spend time with your loved ones.”

As an experienced cake hacker, Lauren says this time-saving trick will quickly become your go to cake hack for any occasion.

All you need is one classic Woolworths chocolate mud cake, frosting, KitKats and, in this case, your favourite Easter eggs.

“Once you’ve picked up everything you need, you can then put this cake together in less than half an hour - yep seriously!” Lauren says.

Check out the step-by-step instructions, here.

Here are her top tips to keep in mind when assembling your cake.

1. Break your KitKat chocolate block into pieces and remove the wrappers from your Easter eggs before you start putting your cake together as it makes decorating your cake easier.
2. Feel free to use your favourite chocolate eggs and bunny for this recipe.
3. The trickiest part is sticking the KitKat pieces to the side of the cake. Please don’t worry about them moving too much, as you also use the ribbon to secure them.
4. While you may be tempted to buy more, you should only need one tub of pre-made chocolate frosting for this recipe.
