So far we (me and dc) have thought of chocolate crispie cakes or refrigerator cake. There must be something more exciting we can make with it? smile

GretaGarbosLeftThigh Thu 01-May-14 15:23:01

Maybe we're the only ones with chocolate left...<hard stare>

Talk about not-so stealth boasting hmm

Just cut out the effort and eat it.

IsSpringSprangedYet Thu 01-May-14 17:55:02

AuntFidget confused

My DC still have an egg left each unless I eat them first grin

HeyBungalowBill Thu 01-May-14 17:57:28

Send me them grin

HeyBungalowBill Thu 01-May-14 17:58:29

Stealth boasting about what?!

GretaGarbosLeftThigh Thu 01-May-14 18:04:58

Stealth boasting that dc haven't eaten their Easter eggs yet?!

Thanks Hecate - those are dark chocolate though <drools> Dc have milk chocolate eggs dagnamit. Not sure if that might be another accidental boast confused

iklboo Thu 01-May-14 18:09:52

Why is it a stealth boast that all the eggs haven't been eaten yet??

Chop it up. Make chocolate chip cookie dough. Freeze in "logs" which you can slice up and bake when you need some cookies.

Alternatively just eat the cookie dough.

We still have a couple of eggs left but I'm eating them whenever I get the house to myself smile

GretaGarbosLeftThigh Thu 01-May-14 18:32:03

Much better Hecate! smile

Love that idea turtle! Do you have a good choc chip cookie recipe?

That Aussie Crunch looks good to me addicted.

Have found a use for all our smashed to bits chocolate bunnies and eggs. That are in plastic bags and look so horrible. Have been 'handled' so would rather cook it!

AuntFidgetWonkhamStrongNajork Thu 01-May-14 18:39:44

Hark at you lot with all the self control grin

GretaGarbosLeftThigh Thu 01-May-14 18:57:35

Ruddy dc haven't cracked them open yet so I can't get at them, nothing to do with self control! Once they are open they are fair game!

Making Aussie crunch tomorrow. Looks LUSH smile

TeenageMutantNinjaTurtle Thu 01-May-14 21:27:27

This is the one I used the other day, piece of cake and my logs are in the freezer waiting for the weekend!!
