    If you can't think of anything else to do with it, I would just chuck it...

    I know it's a waste, but it's a still a waste (or should I say 'waist' hehe) just to eat things that you feel you have to and don't really want.

    Do u have a chocoholic friend who would take it off your hands? Or melt it down and put into other moulds like flower or something.. wrap in clear wrap with a bow and give as gifts.. mothers day gift perhaps

    Edit dd not dad haha
    I'm pretty sure the hospital would only allow stuff thats come in a sealed packet (like the bags of mini eggs) especially from a stranger and not one of the kids parents.

    Is it the cadbury stuff or the crappy stuff? I would just chuck it perhaps....

    At the hospital we got heaps yesterday!! Ronald McDonald donated a stack and volunteers walked around with an Easter bunny giving them out to the kids. Huge crunchy bunnies and Cadbury bunnies plus smaller eggs then there was a 30kg bunny that got smashed and given to the staff!! Unfortunately we don't normally accept lollies/chocolates for kids due to dietary regulations/kids fasting etc. so don't think that'd really be an option.

    Good luck! Luckily DS only got one egg from MIL (which DH may or may not have eaten) and we each got a Lindt bunny so no overload here! Thank goodness as I don't really like Easter egg chocolate

    Yup It's mostly all good stuff. I've chucked all the not so great stuff and the pile is down.

    Hey can you freeze chocolate?

    Oh no I feel like chocolate again it actually calls me to the fridge

    Might just do chop chip cookie dough and freeze that?
