I have so many easter eggs left over from Easter that we just can’t get through. I have tried baking and making brownies with the left over eggs but they just don’t turn out very well. Does anyone have any tips on successful baking with left over easter eggs?

  • I find they’re really only good for decoration so on top of cupcakes with icing or on top of a cake.

  • Left over supplies are well loved by co workers when used in baked treats for morning tea.

  • Not baking but my son puts them out at Halloween, they’re gobbled up quick sticks

  • Mm, I’m one of those people that doesn’t know what a leftover egg is… have you tried things like hot chocolate? That might use a few. Failing that, they’ve probably got a use by date of a year or more, so you don’t really have to panic on using them.

  • What are leftover easter eggs? Haha No, seriously I find making rocky road uses a lot of chocolate up!

  • We also use them in baking and another good idea is to take them to the movies for treats and it saves on buying sweet treats.

  • We just put ours away in the cupboard and nibble them when we feel like chocolate. If you are wanting to use them up maybe make chocolate sauce to go on ice-cream, hot chocolates, chocolate cheesecake, truffle balls, etc. Easter egg chocolate doesn’t have the same qualities as cooking and couverture chocolate.

  • I like using them to melt down for a hot chocolate.

  • Is that even a thing. Leftover Easter eggs? lol. I would google some recipes and try the one with the best reviews.

  • Oh I wish I had enough restraint for this to ever be an issue!
    I love the recipes on Kitchen Sanctuary, and if you search her site and ’10 ways to use Easter eggs’ you’ll find some delish options.

  • At Easter time, I also make white chocolate ganache Easter tarts:


    1 pk butternut snap biscuits
    Melted butter
    1 375g pk white chocolate (or you can use milk or dark if you prefer)
    1/3 cup cream
    Mini Easter eggs of choice
    Mini pattie pans (you can buy from Coles)


    1. Add cream to chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, then heat in 30sec intervals at 800w until melted, stirring after each interval, until melted. Stand for 10min
    2. While melting the chocolate crush biscuits in food processor and add melted butter until they are at a consistency that will hold together.
    3. Press biscuit mixture into pattie pans to form bases for the tarts.
    4. Spoon white chocolate ganache into prepared tart bases and press an Easter egg into each one. Refrigerate to set.

  • One recipe I love is for chocolate surprise muffins – you basically take a nice sweet muffin recipe – cinnamon based works quite well, and push a mini egg into the centre of each one before baking. This works really well with caramel filled Easter eggs as they melt better. But others work too if you don’t mind a solid egg in the middle.
    You can also make a nice bread and butter pudding too, adding in the eggs instead of chocolate drops or fruit.

  • One recipe my kids love is using it in icecream:

    I get a large loaf pan, 2 L vanilla ice cream, 100g mini marshmallows, 350g coarsely chopped leftover chocolate eggs.

    Place ice-cream in a large bowl. Add marshmallows and chocolate. Mix to combine. Freeze for 6 hours or overnight until firm. Serve.

  • How does that even happen? lol
    As a family of addicts I can’t even imagine leftovers.
    Melt them in the microwave (short burst – stirring inbetween) and have them on ice cream for dessert.Put them out in chunks on a plate when visitors come.
