USE UP THE EGGS-TRAS

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - FOOD & DRINK -

Head pas­try chef Ellen de Jager at Miche­lin-starred Bo­hemia Restau­rant in Jersey sug­gests some top tips on how to use your left­over Easter eggs – though there may still be calo­ries in­volved.

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 ready­made 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.
