what to do with extra easter chocolate - 3 ways
Monday, 21 April 2014
Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. We certainly did. I'm on a mega sugar high. Are you?
I don't know about you but for me, every year at Easter, I get way more chocolate than I can eat and I end up stuffing my face so that it doesn't go to waste. This year, I decided to find a way to store it for future use, and create simple creative ways to use it all up.
The first thing I did is smash all the chocolate into tiny pieces and put it in plastic Ziploc bags. That way I can freeze it and it doesn't take too much space. Whenever I need a bit of chocolate, I can simply take a few pieces out of the bag and put it back in the freezer. Simple no?

This is by far my favorite idea. All you have to do is melt a few pieces of chocolate in the microwave for about 30 seconds, stir it then dip your sugar cone in. You can either leave it like that or add candy, nuts or dried fruits. Leave it to dry for a few minutes, top with ice cream and enjoy!
Who doesn't like chocolate fondue? This is perfect for a quick dessert on one of those busy days. All you have to do is cut up some fruit, melt the chocolate and dip in. This would also be a wonderful idea for a romantic night snack with your better half. ;)
This hot chocolate turned out quite rich, which is awesome for a midnight rage. Put some chocolate pieces in a mug, add milk, microwave for about 2 minutes, stir, add marshmallows and enjoy! The marshmallows are really just for fun.
