So we all know that chocolate is not very healthy, and so not in keeping with this site for recipes, but i just couldn' t resist these delicious recipes from Head Pastry Chef, Ellen de Jager at Michelin starred Bohemia Restaurant, in Jersey. I've been salivating at the mouth since i came across them, and i just had to share.
Let me know how far down the list you get before you start craving chocolate. But remember, everything in moderation....
1. Rocky Road
For an easy no bake recipe for the children, try Easter themed rocky road. Mix the melted leftover chocolate with mini marshmallows, digestive biscuits, dried fruit or mini chocolate eggs then place in the fridge to set for 3 hours. Once it is set, dust with icing sugar.
2. Chocolate Croissants
One for the chocoholics! Make or buy ready-made croissant dough and stuff with leftover Creme or Caramel eggs. Once baked you’ll have warm croissants oozing with chocolate.
3. Chocolate Bananas
Feeling a bit guilty after all of that chocolate? For that ‘health kick’ cover sliced banana in melted chocolate then put in the fridge to set.
4. Chocolate Mug Cake
To fix that chocolate craving, quick melt butter and chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds. Beat the mixture until soft then whisk in an egg, sugar, flour and baking powder then microwave for one minute and 20 seconds.
5. Crème Egg Brownies or Cupcakes
Add left over crème eggs to cupcake or brownie mix for a gooey chocolate centre. Perfect for the ultimate chocolate lover and a great alternative to traditional Simnel cake.
6. Ice Cream Topping
Easy but absolutely delicious! Simply melt your leftover Easter chocolate and pour over ice cream as chocolate sauce.
Thanks to Bohemia Restaurant for allowing me to share these.
