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 said 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!

  • $200 what kind of Easter eggs where they? What made the boys look in the booze fridge to begin with.. Clever boys, I can’t even unlock a child lock.


  • I’d never buy that much chocolate in the first place and I hate to think of the children’s headache after they come off that chocolate high. So hard to hide from littlies but I wouldn’t be using that hiding place again.


  • oh my – imagine the sugar rush afterwards!


  • Was all of that chocolate bought for them? Or did they eat everyone’s share? If all for them I certainly would not be replacing it


  • Wow..thats ALOT of chocolate for young children. My 17 month old son recieved one chocolate egg this year – and he was pinging off the sugar in that! So I can only imagine those young children would have been off their heads after all of that chocolate and lots of toilet issues.


  • That is an excessive amount of chocolate! I keep my chocolate in my bedroom and the kids don’t know where it is.


  • That’s a lot of chocolate for 2 very young kids! I usually only spend about $20-$30 each on my kids and they are 7, 16, 19.

    I would also be changing the lock on that fridge


  • $200 worth of chocolate for two boys seems excessive. I bet they had a belly ache afterwards.


  • Those poor tummies ! You know such huge amount of food for the little ones can actually be dangerous ?


  • $200 really……oh my golly sugar rush for days by the looks. Little rascals.


  • Also.. $200?? That’s so much in chocolate!


  • Behind the giant sacks of rice and flour. Heavy and boring hahaha


  • Oh no! I mean I had to have a little giggle! So innocent and sneaky haha


  • They are so little that I think it would be mean to totally for go Easter. I would be reducing their egg stash a bit though.


  • Choco overload oh dear!
