An unwanted Xmas gift of 850g of milk chocolate.

Any ideas? I'm uninspired.

Wait til easter and make some birds nests and eggs with cornflakes or all bran for the school cake sale.

Melt and use for rice crispy cakes with some mini marshmallows?

Melt into custard for chocolate pudding?

Give to someone else!

Imagine how many crispy cakes I could make with a bar this size! I could have the cake stall to myself!

I really wanted to make something a bit more interesting but most recipes need dark chocolate.

Chocolate ice cream?
Bake a massive chocolate cake (like a Brooklyn Blackout Cake) - I quite often bake with milk chocolate - and then take it to your nearest hospital/homeless shelter ….or eat yourself!

Chocolate sauce for ice cream, profiteroles, or pancakes? (When is pancake day?)
Rocky Road, brownies, half dipped cookies, millionaires shortbread?
Chop up for chocolate bread and butter pudding, black cherry/chocolate trifle?
Melt and dunk strawberries/sliced banana/fresh pineapple in for Valentines night pudding, or for banana splits.

I cannot believe this is an unwanted present. Wouldn't last long in my hands my family

nothing. There's bugger all chocolate in it so I think it would be crap for baking.

TheRhythmlessMan - it just doesn't taste the same any more.

There's just so much of it!

There is no decent milk chocolate now.

Use it for chocolate chips in pancakes, muffins, cookies, brownies etc?

Dip strawberries in it? Or do a fondue thing with marshmallows, fruit, cake etc for the kids.

Chocolate mousse? I had a milk chocolate salted caramel mousse at a friend's house that was lovely - she said she got the recipe of bbc good food.

Make chocolate bark with whatever toppings you fancy?

Eat it alone in one sitting?

Dangled good milk chocolate I've had is from M&S (one of their slabs) and Hotel Chocolate isn't bad. A few years back I got some Jamie Oliver milk chocolate which was delicious but I don't know if it exists anymore (it was in a hamper).

You have to go for minimum 40% cocoa solids and keep it in the fridge.

A cup of coffee and go for it wink

I was going to say eat it, but you're right, it's not the same though.

I am actually planning on making these this morning https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2459643/vintage-chocolate-chip-cookies I've made them before with really crap chocolate and never noticed. They're divine so I reckon you'd be ok.

I'm with @Fr3d grin
