When I was a child I used to get given so much chocolate at Easter, it was a little ridiculous. I did have quite a few relatives who would always buy me and my brother one. We ended up eating chocolate eggs for months afterwards, I kid you not. Now my kids tend to get less but they do get a lot of mini chocolate eggs from the Easter egg hunts we set up every year. Now don’t get me wrong, my kids love to eat chocolate, like most other kids but when we have a lot of leftover chocolate Easter eggs, there are other things you can do with it.
I don’t know what it is about chocolate egg either, it just tastes so much better than anything other chocolate, even from a bar. This is totally psychological but it is so true!
I have to admit I’m not the best baker ever. My eldest daughter is pretty much aware of this but despite this we do try now and then together to make desserts and cakes. They usually don’t turn out too badly! Leftover chocolate from Easter is a great way to come up with some ideas for baking.
I asked some of my talented blogging friends for some of their ideas of how to use top leftover chocolate Easter egg.
Leftover Chocolate Easter eggs – Recipes Ideas
Chocolate Bark is one of my favourite things to make with any form of chocolate so I know any leftover chocolate after Easter egg would be perfect for this. I love bark, as a perfect combination
I’ve two chocolate bark recipes on the blog, both almost identical apart from the topping but they are so easy to make!
Check out my Halloween Chocolate Bark Recipe.

Leftover Easter Egg Brownies
My eldest is a huge fan of brownies. Me too actually! There is something amazingly chocolatey and gooey about them and they go really well with a nice cup of tea.
This delicious recipe for Leftover Easter egg Brownies from The Gingerbread House looks amazing and pretty simple to make. Great if you have some Creme Eggs leftover too!
Easter egg Fridge Cake
Easter egg Fridge Cake from the In the Playroom sounds like both a delicious but also pretty original way to use up some of your leftover Easter chocolate.
You don’t even need to bake it!
Easy Mini Egg Cookies
Jane from Hodgepodge Days has this delicious recipe for Easy Mini Egg Cookies and I have to say they sound really tempting. I’m a huge fan of Mini Eggs, so I guess it depends whether or not I’ve already eaten them before they can get into the cookies!

There are some delicious ideas here for your leftover chocolate Easter egg and Easter egg chocolate! That’s if you have any left!
I don’t think there will be much left over chocolate this year but these are great ideas. I’ve said if there is any leftover I will be making brownies with it. Yum, yum x
Thanks for including my fudge. We have lots of small eggs left so I think we’ll be doing either a fridge cake or some cookies.
We’ve melted some down and made a fridge cake. Sometimes there is just too much chocolate!
If I had any chocolate leftover I would attempt these but alas I gobble them all lol.
We’ve made some mini egg brownies already. I do love the look of the chocolate bark with the sweets though, it looks awesome.
Love these! The little mini fudge is so cute and so easy to do , will try this with the girls
Gotta love Brownies and that chocolate bark looks so yummy! Such great ideas, thanks for sharing
