Recipes to use up Easter chocolate

Oh how I love Easter, family time and yummy food without any of the pressures of Christmas. There’s also a whiff of Spring in the air and the chocolate, OH THE CHOCOLATE!

We had a wonderful Easter break, full of all of the good things of the season, but now I have to admit, if I see another chocolate bunny I may come over a little queasy. The house has been overtaken by Easter eggs and something needs to be done about it.

So, this weekend, I’m planning on some baking fun with the kids to make the most of all of these sweeties. We’ll bake something lush and deliver it to some friends and neighbours. Everyone wins!

Here are some ideas for how to use up your Easter chocolate if you’re in the same boat as us.

If you’d still got piles of Creme Eggs, how about this Creme Egg Bundt Cake recipe from Supper in the Suburbs? A show stopper whether it’s Easter or not.
