Annoyed with the pile of Easter Egg boxes and fighting with the kids over how many they can eat in a day? Take out the stress with these easy recipes and turn those chocolate treats into milkshakes, fudge, dips and more!
Who doesn’t love fruit dipped in yummy chocolate? There are all kinds of different things you can use to dip: strawberries, chopped bananas, marshmallows, skewers (try a mix of fruit and marshmallows). Once dipped, you can add toppings too, such as sprinkles or chopped nuts. Melt down the Easter Eggs and stir in some cream (although just plain melted chocolate is delicious).
This is a great one for using up Easter sweets too. Simply melt down the chocolate and spread in a thin layer onto a cookie sheet spread with parchment paper. Sprinkle with sweets (Mini Eggs, Smarties or just sprinkles from the baking cupboard) and chill. Once set, break up into pieces and enjoy! If you have different kinds of chocolate eggs, you could make it two layer, or drizzle the second type over the top.
An oldie but goodie. Melt the Easter Eggs, mix with Rice Krispies or Cornflakes, spoon into bun cases and chill. Add your favourite toppings and enjoy!
Fudge is easy to bake with children and super delicious to eat. You can also add topping such as chopped nuts, sweets, edible glitter, sprinkles – anything that takes your fancy.
