The top 10 chocolate recipes for leftover Easter eggs


As Easter approaches this weekend, it's time for us to gently loosen our waistbands and accept the inevitable: that we will be consuming an unfeasible level of creamy, moreish and sickly sweet chocolate in one relentless stream.

From chocolate buttermilk pancakes with homemade salted caramel sauce to the intriguing-sounding Snickers superfan cupcakes, these creations are not for the fainthearted or calorie-shy. But they do promise chocolate satisfaction, in all its ganache-filled, brownie-infused and peanut butter-flavoured goodness. So go melt down your leftover chocolate and get stuck in!
