So, Easter Sunday has come and gone; and whether you stuck to your Lenten fast or couldn’t make it beyond the first week, you’re likely full up of chocolate right now.
For the chocolate addicts among us (#guilty), there’s probably no such thing as being ‘sick’ of the tasty treat – but we bet you’re looking for something to do, to get those tempting leftovers away from prying fingers!
Creating an exquisite dessert that you can share with your family or guests over the Easter holidays is a great way of spreading the chocolatey goodness around – and ensuring you don’t make your headache even worse, by just sitting down in front of the TV, breaking pieces off.
If you’re having guests or a special family celebration in the coming days, here are some truly mouth-watering creations to whip up with your Easter egg leftovers.
1. Chocolate Layer Cake
This rich and decadent layer cake is perfect for the chocaholics out there, and will go down a total treat if you’re having some friends over for dinner or drinks. While this particular recipe uses dark chocolate for the icing, you can mix it up yourself with your favourite flavour. Give the cake a distinctly Easter-themed twist by serving with a side of mini-eggs.
2. Coconut Bars
This alternative to the store-bought version is – dare we say it – even more delicious! This three-ingredient recipe will make for the perfect sweet treat or after-dinner snack after the decadent dinners of this past weekend.
