    Default Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate...

    I can't believe how much chocolate people give a 6 month and 23 month old for easter! Yes 6 months and she got more chocolate than I could eat in a year and I love chocolate. I really don't know what some people were thinking....

    Anyways enough of my ranting.

    I was hoping there was some hubbers on here with some easy but yummy recipes I could make with some of the chocolate. Even better would be recipes that you can freeze and that the littlies can eat so at least that way they are getting there their Easter pressies. Hmmm actually any recipes would help as I hate the thought of throwing it all out in 6 months when it's not good anymore. TIA

    The taste.com.au app is pretty good. Nothing too fancy on there. Good luck!

    I didn't buy DS any because I knew he would be given some. Maybe make a batch of choc-banana muffins and freeze them for snacks?

    We only brought them one egg each and that was because I wanted the egg cup for them lol. It's crazy the amount people give them. I just weighted it and all up it's 1.05kg of chocolate! That's ridiculous.

    Wow! That is a lot of chocolate! This is why I've always bought those little eggcup or mug sets for Easter presents for little ones in the past.

    Anyways, just subscribing for recipes - I love chocolate and I love baked goods so I'm interested in recipes also.

    I would just throw it out but I'm like that. If it's unhealthy and we have been given an insane amount of it I throw it.

    Perhaps talk to your family next year and give them other options...my kids got no chocolate from anyone.

    Last year I broke them up and made two batches of mini muffins with them. One was banana and chocolate (like a PP had mentioned) the other was berry and chocolate. I then froze the muffins and used them when we had guests etc.

    I agree it's too much chocolate for little ones. DS is only 2 and DH's aunt bought his a massive chocolate bunny. It's lovely she thought of him but OMG that is so much chocolate.

    Thanks, I'll definitely make some muffins today. Anyone got any other recipes, they don't necessarily have to be freezable. :-)
