I’m sure most of you are like me and don’t want the kiddies to eat too much chocolate. But what to do with all these eggs? It seams a waste to throw them away. I certainly don’t want or need to eat them. I would love some suggestions on how you use up these chocolate goodies.

  • This year I bought my kids 1 bigger organic Easter egg each. It was 4x$12.50=$60 so that’s enough and no leftovers.

  • Eat them yourself hahahaha or make cheesecakes, chocolate mousse, hot chocolates as treats

  • mmm, this is an odd one. We only give our children the amount we’d like them to eat. so they get 1 bunny and 1 egg each usually. There aren’t any leftovers.

  • Choc chip bics, stir thru warm milk for a hot chocolate, melt for a ice cream topping. Or share with anyone and everyone that comes for a visit

  • I use them in the baking, or as some suggested here – as fruit dip

  • You could use them in cooking instead of chocolate chips. or grate them for grated chocolate. or make a hot chocolate with them just add them to warm milk and stir.

  • I made choc chip cookies and gave them away

  • My suggestion would be to get a mirowable bowl and break a good amount up into it say 200 grams and tip into it a quater of a jar of cream and melt and stir. It makes areally good friut dip when you have guest over, or even to give the kids a treat. It stays ok in the fridge for a few days after making. You just need to give a quick stir before serving and yes it can be served cold.

  • dont have to be eaten all at once. put some away!

  • They can be broken into pieces the size you want and frozen in airtight containers/freezer bags and thawed at a later date. Great for use in cooking. You could thaw and melt some as chocolate topping on icecream or a sundae. You could crush it up to use as decoration on cake or biscuits or grate it and mix it in the cake icing. Make custard and flavour it with the chocolate.

  • Make some brownies that can be frozen and defrosted when you want them or chocolate ice cream.

  • I generally use them in cooking if there’s any left!

  • I try to tell people before they give my kids easter eggs that my kids don’t eat junk food. Saves me from trying to get it off them and the tantrum that follows

  • Another thought! If the expiry date is past October 15 they will come in handy for Halloween treats too!

  • Getting kids to eat fruit is a constant challenge, so leftover Easter egg chocolate is the perfect way to entice children to try new fruits. Let’s face it…when foods are dipped in chocolate they are suddenly more appealing to children, and their parents (hey, I’m human). To melt chocolate, place in a microwave-proof bowl. Heat for 60 seconds, stir, and then heat for a further 30 seconds. Stir once again. If the chocolate isn’t yet melted, place in for a remaining 30 seconds. Then, get dipping. You can dip strawberries, bananas, kiwi fruit that has been peeled and quartered, raspberries, apple slices and pineapple.
    Any Easter eggs that haven’t been removed from their original packaging can be stored for next year. Yes, they usually do last that long. All you need to do is keep them in a cool, dry place that is protected from children, animals, insects and the elements.
    And, this is my favourite thing to do with left over Easter egg chocolate. Melt down some chocolate and stir it into your favourite, healthy muffin recipe or even chocolate cake recipe. If you bake them into muffins or cupcakes you can eat some now and freeze the rest. Then, when you want to eat them, just put them on the bench to thaw in time for afternoon tea.
