What to Do With Leftover Easter Chocolate?
When it comes to deciding on how to use your Easter eggs, you have a huge number of options based on what you’ve got. If you think about it, Easter eggs are a great substitute for any recipe that uses blocks of chocolate, chocolate chips or chocolate melts. So what can you do with those?
- Melting them down to make a sauce or ganache.
- Using them as decoration.
- Chopping and dicing them up to put in desserts.
- Strawberry & Chocolate Fudge Brownies
These super easy brownies will get you licking your lips and make your home smell amazing! They take very little time to prepare and can be embellished with little chocolate eggs on top for extra indulgence. Pop some in the freezer if you don’t want them all eaten at once.
- Chocolate Hot Cross Bun Pudding
This recipe is a fresh take on the classic bread and butter pudding using up both your leftover chocolate and hot cross buns. Winner! Enjoy for breakfast, lunch or tea and there is plenty to go around.
- Single Serve Choc Peanut Butter Baked Oats
…. all the Single Ladies… put your hands up! This recipe may suggest too just add some choc chips on top, however, I think when in Rome go all the way. I love the idea of sticking a Ferrero in the middle or crushing up a mini Kit Kat and mixing it through at the end.
- Easter Chocolate Bark
No recipe required for this one. Just melt your plain chocolate and place onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Then scatter your mini eggs. Once the chocolate resets break it up into pieces. Don’t have any mini eggs left? I don’t blame you. Then try this with your dark chocolate, some dried cranberries, and pistachios. Voila, you’re a chocolatier!
- Nutella and Strawberry Dessert Pizza
Who said you can’t have dessert for dinner? This recipe can be used for an endless possibility of flavours. However, the flavour combo of this recipe is pretty hard to beat. For a chocolate boost, top with broken up Ferrero Rocher or for a bit of freshness sprinkle some chopped mint.
- Slow Cooker Spicy Hot Chocolate
Gather your family and friends together and enjoy this one all year round. This recipe makes 8 serves and can be kept warm in the slow cooker. For extra indulgence, enjoy with a Tim Tam or dunk your Easter Egg Bark.
Simply put, it just wouldn’t be Easter without an abundance of chocolate. Not that anyone is complaining because it’s a problem we all love to have. We may have suggested using up your Easter chocolate, however, these recipes are suitable for all seasons. Most importantly, enjoyed with family and friends. We hope we have inspired you to transform your left-over chocolate into one (or 3) of these delicious, sweet treats.Back to blog
