Is your house is overflowing with Easter eggs after the weekend?
We’re giving the Easter bunny a run for his money by rounding up some yummy ideas that we've found from brilliant bakers online on how to use up any leftover Easter chocolate. What’s more, they’re easy enough for the kids to help out with over the Easter holidays – talk about win-win 🙂
1. CHOCOLATE RICE KRISPIE CAKES
Ah, the old classic. You just can’t go wrong with chocolate Rice Krispie cakes! They’re super easy to make and kids love to help out with these cute little treats. Just break up and melt your Easter egg chocolate, mix it with Rice Krispies and share it out into little cupcake cases. Easy as that!
We took it one step further and decided to top them off with all the leftover mini eggs we had too. Two birds with one stone and all that!
2. CHOCOLATE BROWNIES
Because WHO doesn’t like brownies?! Just use your favourite chocolate brownie recipe, substituting the plain chocolate for your own Easter choc, for another brilliant way to use up those delicious yet pesky Easter eggs. For even scrummier brownies, fill them with caramel and nuts before baking them in a brownie tin.

3. CHOCOLATE DIPPED MARSHMALLOWS
Chocolate dipped marshmallows are probably the easiest yet most fun way to treat the kids over the holidays while using up Easter eggs. Just pop some plain white marshmallows on colourful cake pop sticks then fill some bowl with sprinkles and your melted Easter chocolate to let the whole family create their own colourful treats.
