The mum was shocked to discover that her sons had found her Easter stash in the booze cupboard and managed to eat all of it!

When Aussie mum of two Afroditi Darwin hid nearly $200 worth of Easter eggs in her booze fridge, she never imagined her boys would find and eat the lot! Afroditi told news.com.au that the boys got out of bed around 4 am and hatched a plan to get access to the hidden Easter chocolate, all while she was asleep and completely oblivious.

Chocolate For Breakfast

Afroditi says that she couldn’t believe that the boys had managed to eat all the chocolate.

“This morning my two lovely boys, aged 3.5 and 2, somehow managed to open the locked alcohol fridge where I had stashed their Easter chocolates,” she wrote.

“They ate about $150-$200 worth of chocolate for breakfast this morning.”

Afroditi admitted that it didn’t take her long to work out how the boys had managed to find her haul.

“They got the step from the toilet, put it on a chair and climbed up to unlock the child lock. They had two solid hours before I woke up.”

The mum of two believes she should not do Easter as the boys have already had more than their fair share of chocolate.

“They’re young,” she said. “Are they really going to know anyway?”

Blame The Bunny

Comments from other mums on the post offered some helpful suggestions.

“Tell them today was Easter and they just won the Easter egg hunt,” one clever mum suggested.

“The start of this post sounded so promising,” joked another. “I was looking forward to a drunken toddler story!”

We definitely think that Afroditi’s story is a timely reminder to find a toddler-proof hiding spot for your Easter hauls this year!

Where do you hide your Easter eggs? Have your kids ever found them? Let us know in the comments!

  • Oh my gosh, my bub won’t sleep for days if that was her!!!


  • That is a huge amount of chocolate !


  • I hide inside and out and keep an egg map for those that might get missed


  • High up in the cupboards where they can reach


  • high up i the cupboards. getting harder to find out of the way spots though. suitcases have worked well


  • I hid mine (successfully) in the storage cupboard.


  • Oh Wow thats a lot of chocolate to eat haha


  • I feel like $200 is a bit over the top but each to their own. We hid ours in the second fridge but I think next year will need another spot.


  • Too funny, though one concern i had was why you bought $200 worth of easter eggs for your little ones?


  • Be thankful It wasn’t the medicine cupboard and up high where a kid can push table across the kitchen, put a chair on top and reach the locked cupboard. A call to RFDS for verbal advice was really handy that day. It was flavoured cough medicine. The Mum was sorting and putting washing in the machine and suddenly realised Missy was quiet and searched for her. It was just before child proof lids were introduced


  • I’d tell them that the Easter Bunny has hidden their Easter Eggs and they need to find them. Don’t let them know you had hidden them, at their age I’d let them believe it was the Easter Bunny who hid them in your booze fridge. As soon as the shops open I’d get a new locking system for your fridge too.


  • Very funny


  • Woooohhh I’m gonna hide them in the top top top shelf of the wir


  • Yes of cause. My kids always know how to find them.


  • Wow, I’d kill them!
