Chocolate Easter Egg Leftovers

We all over indulge at Easter, eating all the chocolate in site, but what can you do with your leftover Easter Eggs when you’ve simply had enough! We look at some quick and easy recipes and creative ideas to get rid of your leftovers and spread a little joy to your family and friends....

Chocolate Cakes
Simple melt chocolate and mix with cereal such as Rice Krispies or Corn Flakes! This is a favourite leftover recipe for many, and also a great simple recipe to get young children baking in the kitchen for the first time.

Personalised Chocolates
Chocolate moulds are a great way to create something new out of your leftover chocolate Easter Eggs. a great selection of chocolate moulds, perfect for creating personalised chocolates for family and freinds, simply gift wrap and you have the perfect birthday present (or treat for yourself).

Banana Split
Simply melt your chocolate Easter eggs and pour over sliced bananas, whipped cream and ice cream for a scrumptious dessert - Don’t forget to add sprinkles and a cherry on top!

Add small, roughly chopped chocolate to two scoops of your favourite ice cream, along with a splash of milk, ice and simply blend. We suggest finishing with whipped cream and chocolate shavings for a “wow” shake.

Chocolate Fondet
Simply warm double cream on the hob and when small bubbles start to appear, stir in your chocolate chunks. Continue to stir until both the cream and chocolate are fully mixed, then transfer to a serving bowl with a range of tasty treats to dip into the chocolate fondant - Strawberries and marshmallows are always a hit!

Chocolate Strawberries
Melt dark or milk chocolate Easter eggs and dip large fresh strawberries into the mix. Place the chocolate strawberries on a plate, and leave to set in the fridge for around 30 mins. Once set, melt white chocolate and re-dip the strawberries and place again in the fridge for a great double chocolate effect!

Chocolate Lollypops
Lollypop moulds are a quick and easy way to make something new and exciting from your chocolate eggs. Simply melt the chocolate, pour the chocolate into the mould and leave to set in the fridge for around 30 mins. Once set, remove the lollypops and dip them into melted chocolate, followed by sprinkles or edible glitter for a great effect.
