So, Easter has been and gone… and so, perhaps has the Easter bunny. Did she leave a giant stash of eggs that you just can’t seem to get to the bottom of – despite best attempts at eating chocolate for breakfast, lunch and tea? Worry not, because we’ve got some brilliant ideas for you to use up your Easter chocolate, to share the joy!
- Easter Egg Rocky Road – a great no-bake recipe that the kids can get involved with. Simply mix melted leftover chocolate, broken up digestive biscuits, melted butter, a couple of spoons of syrup, some mini marshmallows and some leftover mini eggs (and save some to scatter over the top). Press into a tin and chill until all set. YUM!
- Chocolate Cookies – break up easter egg chocolate into chunks to use in cookies or biscuits.
- Mini chocolate cheesecakes – use cupcake wrappers to hold mini chocolate cheesecakes, using melted chocolate and biscuits for the base then more melted egg chocolate to create the topping. Top with leftover mini eggs to make it pretty as a picture!
- Crispy cornflake cakes – use melted easter egg chocolate mixed with cornflakes or rice crispies to create a childhood favourite crispy cakes. Who doesn’t love them?!
Did you know…..
The chocolate egg has become an international symbol of Easter. Decorated eggs were once used to symbolise Easter for Christians across the world but the very first chocolate egg was made in Europe in the early 19th century.
