Left Over Easter Eggs?

I'm not usually one to complain about having too much chocolate but after this weekend I'm quite sick of eating it in egg form so here's a few idea's with what to do with those left over eggs which you just can't stomach!!

No-bake chocolate cakes
Simple melt a couple of Easter eggs down and mix with cereals such as Rice Krispies or Corn Flakes. It’s a great, easy recipe to get young children ‘baking’ in the kitchen for the first time.

Banana split
Melt your Easter eggs and pour over sliced bananas, whipped cream and ice cream for a scrumptious dessert. Don’t forget to add sprinkles and a cherry on top!

Add small, roughly chopped chocolate to two scoops of your favourite ice cream, along with a splash of milk and ice, then blend into a milkshake. Finish it with whipped cream and chocolate shavings for an amazing shake.

Chocolate lollipops
Lollipop moulds are always useful to have in the cupboard. Simply melt the chocolate, pour it into the mould, and leave to set in the fridge for around 30 minutes. Once set, remove the lollipops and dip them into melted chocolate, followed by sprinkles or edible glitter for a great effect.

Chocolate strawberries
Melt dark or milk chocolate Easter eggs and dip large fresh strawberries into the mix. Place the chocolate strawberries onto a plate and leave to set in the fridge for around 30 minutes. Once set, melt white chocolate and re-dip the strawberries and place again in the fridge for a great double chocolate effect.
