10 ways to use up your Easter chocolate

It happens every year. No matter how hard you try, the week after Easter there’s always a mountain of chocolate left sitting on your kitchen tabletop just waiting to be eaten.

After all, chocolate would be a terrible thing to waste!

It's all fun and games at first, but after a few days of egg-streme eating, it can become slightly boring. 

So to help you make your way through what seems like the never ending amount of Easter eggs you and your little ones have accumulated, we've rounded up some chocolate-based recipes that you can use your eggs in.

After all, chocolate would be a terrible thing to waste! 

Strawberry kebabs

The good thing about chocolate is that it's so versatile. It tastes great by itself, even better in a dessert and oh-so-heavenly when it's melted. If you've been given any dark chocolate this Easter, make sure you use it for this recipe. Simply melt it down with some cream and Grand Marnier or orange juice, and dip your fruit. Yum!

Chocolate fondue

This chocolate fondue recipe would work with white, dark or milk chocolate. Or why not melt all three? Fun and quick to make, this is a party favourite for dipping. Gather the kids and get them involved with making a fresh fruit platter. 

Homemade hot chocolate

You can't beat hot chocolate, can you? Especially if it's homemade! This homemade recipe takes 10 minutes to make, but is delicious and comforting any time of the day.
