If you and your family find yourself left with a mountain of chocolate to get through this Christmas then why not transform it into something a bit different? We’ve put together a list of our favourite recipes that help use up any leftover Christmas chocolate, making room in the cupboards for a fresh, decluttered start to the New Year.
M&M granola bars
These yummy, multi-coloured granola bars are a great way to use up any leftover M&Ms in the house. They’re unbaked and super easy to make so they’re also fantastic for keeping the kids busy over the Christmas holidays!
Reese’s peanut butter cheesecake
The American peanut butter cups have proven themselves to be a huge hit in the UK over the past couple of years with more and more appearing in supermarkets across the country. If you find yourself with a few too many this Christmas then why not put them to good use and turn them into a delicious peanut butter cheesecake?
After Eight iced sherbert
Combine frozen fruit, icing sugar and greek yoghurt with any leftover After Eight mints and you have yourself a beautiful, sophisticated festive dessert. Not only does it look amazing, but the sharp and fruity flavour mix gives it a deliciously unique taste.
Terry’s Chocolate Orange cupcakes
Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without at least one chocolate orange under the tree but many of us find ourselves ending up with a few too many of the festive classic. These amazing cupcakes by Jane’s Patisserie are a brilliant way to enjoy them in a whole other form.
Malteser Christmas pudding cake
Maltesers are another staple Christmas treat that can really stack up over the holidays. If you’ve ran out of room in the chocolate cupboard, this delicious malteser ‘Christmas pudding’ recipe is perfect for serving to kids and adults alike. Plus it looks pretty cool too!
Snickers bar blondies
Snickers aren’t always the most popular choice in the Celebrations tub but using them to make these gooey blondies is guaranteed to get everybody involved!
The chocolatey twist on this classic dessert makes this recipe one of our personal favourites on the list. Tiramisu is a traditionally Venetian dessert made up of coffee, cream and light sponge but the introduction of leftover Lindt bars takes it to an even more scrumptious level!
Rolo stuffed cookies
If your family love Rolos then these cookies are the perfect way to really treat them this Christmas. Follow this simple recipe to make your own irresistible crunchy caramel bakes!
Toblerone ice cream cake
Wash down all that wonderful Christmas food with this creamy Toblerone ice cream cake recipe. As delicious as they are, Toblerones can stack up over the holidays so this tasty recipe is perfect for putting any leftovers to good use! Plus it makes a bit of change from chocolate bars.
Flake Yule log
And finally, a Flake Yule log! There’s many ways you can incorporate Flakes into cake mixes but with its festive twist and unique use of the popular chocolate bar we just had to round off the list with this brilliant recipe.
