Looking for baking ideas for leftover Easter eggs?

Easter is only 2 days away and I bet the thought of your soon to be mountain of Easter eggs is already on your mind.

Do you need an excuse to cook with chocolate over the Easter long weekend? Are you perhaps looking for recipes to use up your Easter egg collection before they take over your pantry?

It is unusual however there also comes a point after Easter when you think how can I (or my kids) possibly eat all of this chocolate?


This blog suggests a few recipes from Italian hot chocolate, Tartufi balls and Pear and chocolate cake to turn left over chocolate into something fabulous. It may even keep the kids entertained during the school holidays. Whenever a recipe calls for chocolate, simply substitute it for chocolate eggs. Discover many more Italian recipe ideas online at Italian Spoon.
