Got a little more chocolate than you bargained for? You’ve already overdosed on chocolate, loosened your belt and put yourself into a sugar coma, so you can’t bear to look at those eggs any longer.
Head Pastry Chef Ellen de Jager at Michelin starred Bohemia Restaurant, Jersey has provided her top tips on how to use your leftover Easter eggs – not suitable for the calorie-shy!
For an easy no bake recipe for the children, try Easter themed rocky road. Mix the melted leftover chocolate with mini marshmallows, digestive biscuits, dried fruit or mini chocolate eggs then place in the fridge to set for 3 hours. Once it is set, dust with icing sugar.
One for the chocoholics! Make or buy ready made croissant dough and stuff with leftover Creme or Caramel eggs. Once baked you’ll have warm croissants oozing with chocolate
CREME EGG BROWNIES OR CUPCAKES
Add left over crème eggs to cupcake or brownie mix for a gooey chocolate centre. Perfect for the ultimate chocolate lover and a great alternative to traditional Simnel cake.
Feeling a bit guilty after all of that chocolate? For that ‘health kick’ cover sliced banana in melted chocolate then put in the fridge to set.
