Leftover Easter egg recipes

This may seem unusual however there comes a point after Easter when I think how I (or my kids) can possibly eat all of this chocolate. In Italian cuisine, there is an unspoken rule that nothing should ever go to waste. Get the saucepan out and get ready to melt down those leftover chocolate eggs and bunnies as we are about to turn left over chocolate into something fabulous.
