Leftover Easter Chocolate? Here’s What You Need to Do

We know some of you might find this hard to believe, but there is such a thing as having too many chocolate eggs at Easter. While there’s no doubting that you’ll get through them eventually, there is only so long you can keep up the habit of eating a full choccie egg for each meal of the day, before being fed up of the sight of those hollow ovoids. Sometimes consuming that chocolate hoard you’ve amassed requires a change in strategy – eggs need to put to good use in other ways, especially if use-by dates are approaching.  

With that in mind, here are 19 ways to re-purpose chocolate, without it losing any of the allure that wooed you into buying so much of it in the first place.

Cadbury Creme Egg Cookie Bars

Easter just wouldn’t be the same without Cadbury Creme eggs lying around the house. Unfortunately, when that sickly feeling of eating too much chocolate kicks in, Crème Eggs are typically first fall by the wayside. Luckily, though, House of Yumm has come up with a way to give those little foil-wrapped bites a new lease of life: Crème Egg Cookie Bars!

Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie

How do you eat yours? Remember when Cadbury asked us all that question about Creme Eggs?

We’ve pondered that question long and hard, testing all of the popular methods: bite and lick, straight bite through and the finger scoop. None of those options done it for us like the Creme Egg brownie, though. Yes, it's another Creme Egg recipe, but we couldn't possibly leave it out. 

Choc-Egg Lollies

The general idea behind a lollipop is that you suck it until it’s really small and then crush what little of it is remaining with your teeth. Typically they’re robust enough to last you a good 5 to 10 minutes. Try making these lollies last any longer than 10 seconds, we bet you can’t – the chocolate sponge simply won’t allow it!

Milky Bar Cheesecake

We’ve neglected white chocolate for too long. It’s not acceptable that those Milky Bar eggs are left to be consumed as they were intended – not when milk chocolate and dark chocolate are enjoying a new lease of life as a milkshake or brownie. White chocolate has to be allowed to go out in style too, and it shall, with this no-bake cheesecake.
