Leftover Chocolate?

Of course, I’m joking!  There is no such thing as “leftover” chocolate.  It’s more like, “chocolate I haven’t gotten to yet”.

 

 

 If you find yourself with a surplus of this Easter candy you-have-yet-to-get-to, here are some recipe ideas.


Easter Candy Bark

When making bark, anything goes. Dark, milk, or white chocolate. And your choice of fillers- crushed Robin eggs, candy corn, marshmallows, peanut butter cups, chunks of Creme eggs.  It’s all good.

13 Stunning Easter Desserts

A few days before Easter, I’m contemplating the construction of the dessert table.  Of course,  we’ll require an ample  selection of Nostalgic Easter confections.  Bowls of chocolates wrapped in pastel foil, malted Robin eggs, marshmallow chicks, and chocolate Easter bunnies galore.  

Then, we will need a couple hand held treats.  Pastel Cookies and Coconut Nests to eat in between egg hunts and outside games. 

But, the treat that needs most attention, takes center stage on the dessert table.  It’s the Easter show stopper.  Whether cute, or beautiful, it should warrant oohs and awes. And it better taste good, too.  Nothing worse than biting into a gorgeous chocolate egg and finding it hollow.

Here are the finalists inspiring my Easter show piece.  What will you be serving?

13 Recipes Made With Easter Candy

Tis the season…for Robin Eggs, Marshmallow Peeps, and those luscious Cadbury Creme Eggs. Going down the seasonal aisle is like visiting long lost friends. Some from last season, some from childhood. As a kid, these treats were rare.  And they wouldn’t make their debut till Easter morning.  Jelly beans and robin eggs scattered on the surface of my basket’s filler. But the real prizes sunk below. Digging through the plastic straw was like a search for buried treasure. And the real treat was finding one, unwrapping its pastel foil, and devouring it before breakfast.

Now, as an adult, I have the luxury of buying these nostalgic treats the day after Valentine’s Day. Some, I nibble on throughout the season. Some, I use in mouth-watering recipes. And others, I wait to unwrap on Easter morning, rejoicing in a lifetime of memories—one treasure at a time.


Enough of the sap… Dig out your Easter candy stash, and make something delicious, even more delicious!
