    Default What does everyone do with their carry over Easter Eggs!!!

    We have a fridge FULL and there is no way in hell DD is having another bite. (She's only 2.5) We don't allow her sweets very often but yesterday was ridiculous.

    Anyway what do you all do with it all? I know it's a waste to throw out but so far I think I just have to as it's either that or I face a toddler with the start of a chocolate addiction.

    I have eggs, rabbits, blocks you name it!!

    Oh and I can't really keep it as is or I'll eat it all 😁

    Any ideas?

    Take it to yours or partners workplace and leave it in the tearoom. Will disappear quickly enough.

    Probably won't help for this year, but why is there a fridge full of chocolate? Who bought it all? Put your foot down next year about relatives giving her so much chocolate.

    We are the same. Went to a family lunch and had NO idea that everybody there would buy copious amounts of eggs for my 3yo. OMG so much chocolate it's just excessive. And I need mine gone too or I will eat it

    We leave them in the cupboard, gradually eat the good stuff and eventually throw the rest out.

    Cook with it....we always have choc chip banana muffins after easter!

    Loads of recipes need chocolate...just melt it or break it up and use it in place of choc bits.

    We are a really small family so fortunately I can get word around to everyone that I don't really want DS(3) to have much chocolate. He got lots of small toys instead. Sticker books, stencils, crayons, wind up toys etc. he was spoilt in that way!

    As for what to do with it all I would consider taking it to a children's ward, old peoples home, homeless shelter. Do you know anyone less fortunate who may appreciate it? Or you could break it down and use it for cooking.

    We have this exact same problem...we told everyone to only get a small amount for 3.5 year old DD but when 4 grandparents, 6 aunties & uncles & friends buy a 'small' amount you still end up with a crap load! I just made DH hide most of it, I have no willpower if it's there I HAVE to eat it. Gonna bake some muffins with some tomorrow, I know I won't eat them. Might do some choc coated fruit too so it's a bit healthier!
