If your house is anything like mine, I know it gets to a point at Easter where you have so much leftover chocolate due to all the chocolatey Easter egg treats. Now, some people tuck in and enjoy the Easter eggs, but some people look for fun, exciting recipes to put them to good use with.
So today, I will tell you my top 3 recipes that you can use to put all the leftover eggs to good use, and they will be even more delicious than first thought!
Chocolate tiffin recipe- leftover chocolate easter recipes!
Ingredients you need-
150g butter, cubed, plus extra for the tin
3 tbsp caster sugar
3 tbsp golden syrup
6 tsp cocoa powder
225g biscuits, crushed
handful of raisins
110g milk chocolate
110g dark chocolate
Start by using butter to grease a tin and line it using baking paper. Then grab a large saucepan and melt the butter, sugar, cocoa powder and syrup. Stir through your crushed biscuits and raisins.
Pour the melted mix into the ready-prepared and lined tin, press down, and smooth the top with a metal spoon.
Microwave both types of chocolate- leftover Easter eggs or leftover Easter treats- in 20-second blocks, stirring it well until it is all melted with no lumps. Pour this over the mixture in the tin. Use a palette knife or spoon to smooth it so it’s completely coated in chocolate.
Run a kitchen knife under the hot tap, and cut your treat into squares! See, a delicious tray back made due to all that leftover chocolate from Easter you thought you would never get rid of! Finally, please leave it in the fridge overnight or for over 2 hours.
Easy Chocolate Bark- leftover chocolate recipes!
Here are the minimal ingredients needed to make this delicious bark; you could also change the toppings that are in use if you would like, maybe berries or marshmallows. It is up to you!
200g dark chocolate or milk- could be leftovers, chopped
2 tbsp chocolate chips
a small handful of pretzel pieces
2 tbsp honeycomb pieces
First, melt your chocolate in 20-second bursts, stirring regularly to ensure it does not burn, and you will get all lumps gone. Spoon onto a parchment-lined baking tray and smooth over with a spatula to make a thinnish layer, around 35 x 20cm.
For neat slices, remove the bark from the fridge and leave for a minute to come to room temperature. Then, cut the bark into shard shapes- if it is still fridge temperature, it will break and snap easier than cutting it! Sprinkle over the chocolate chips and the pieces of pretzel and honeycomb, then chill until solid.
There we go, another delicious recipe made from leftover chocolate, probably from Easter!
Chocolate strawberry- leftover chocolate recipes!
This last one is the easiest, but I would also say it is my favourite leftover chocolate recipe!
All you want to do is melt your leftover chocolate in a saucepan or the microwave, stirring with 20 secs bursts to make sure it is all melted. Once you have melted your chocolate, stick a stick through the top end of a strawberry and dip it right into the chocolate!
Let these chill on parchment paper, and then that’s you! Let them cool for a few hours until all the chocolate has hardened, and then get stuck into them!
