- Dish type
As a kid I had quite a few Easter eggs from across the family (terrible life eh?). Anyway jokes aside I use to wonder what to do with them, this is the most fun idea I had in many years.
Glamorgan, Wales, UK
1 person made this
- 1 chocolate Easter egg
- cereal of your choice, to taste
- sweeties for topping, to taste
MethodPrep:5min ›Extra time:1hr › Ready in:1hr5min
- Break the Easter egg into many little pieces.
- OPTION 1: Pop it into a microwave safe bowl, put it on high for 30 seconds, mix, if still not all melted try again for 10 seconds at a time. (Careful not to burn, it is really easy to do).
- OPTION 2: Get a small pan you can balance a bowl on top of and fill 1/4 of it with water. Bring the water to a rolling boil then turn down the temperature to keep it warm and put the bowl of chocolate on top, continue to stir until melted.
- Add the cereal. Mix enough in until there is not spare runny chocolate but all the pieces are covered.
- Decorate with sweeties. Leave in the fridge for a hour or so to set.
Cereal of your choice (rice crispies, cornflakes or branflakes work best).If you want smaller portions, you can divide the mixture among cupcake or fairy cake cases.You can also eat this mixture without setting it in the fridge and without the sweetie toppings.I'd recommend only using 1/4 - 1/2 of an egg if you wish to do this as it gets sickly fast or pop the left overs in the fridge to set. ,br/>Adding grapes or your favourite juicy fruit is also quite a good treat!

Leftover Easter egg recipes
If you’re like me, you’ve made extra hard-cooked eggs for Easter so that there are some leftover to serve in other ways. Here are several easy-to-prepare recipes that I’ve posted before, but are worthy of repeating.

1/4 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 small onion, finely chopped
salt, pepper, allspice, to taste
a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
Gently combine the chopped eggs, parsley, onion and seasonings.Then drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil, tossing lightly. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Serve with your favorite chorag, lavash, or simit recipe.
|Potato-Egg Salad (Photo from wordsofdeliciousness.com)|
Yield: 4-6 servings
1 lb. boiled potatoes, peeled, cooled and sliced
4 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and roughly chopped
½ cup parsley, chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Olive oil, to taste
1. Place sliced potatoes and chopped eggs in a large mixing bowl.

6 large eggs, hard-cooked in the shell
Place the eggs in a medium saucepan with water to cover and bring to a boil. Remove saucepan from the heat, cover the pan, and let stand for 20 minutes. Pour off the hot water. Have a bowl of cold water ready. Gently crack the eggshells all over and let them sit in the bowl of cold water for 5 minutes. Peel the eggs**, cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
**Peeling hard-cooked eggs:
Gently roll eggs between your hands to loosen the shell, then peel. If the shell is too hard to peel, hold the egg under cold water while peeling.

|Sonia Tashjian’s Eggs with Herbs|
Eggs with Herbs – Sonia Tashjian’s left-over Easter egg creation
Approx. 1 lb. (1/2 kg.) of Swiss chard leaves thoroughly washed, and chopped (Fresh spinach may be substituted)
1 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon of butter or ghee
1/2 teaspoon of sumac
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper

Approx. 8 oz. (200 gm) of cheese, shredded (any good melting cheese will do)
3 or 4 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and sliced

Spread the onion –chard mixture in a baking dish, arrange the sliced eggs on top of the onion and chard, then top with the shredded cheese. Bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees), until the cheese is melted.
Mini egg cookies
You can make fewer of them and have enormous US-style cookies, but these are the perfect size to enjoy with a cup of tea.
Makes: 24 (or 12 giant ones)
200g chocolate mini eggs, half broken up
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan). Place the sugars, salt and butter in a large bowl, and whisk until soft and creamed.
2. Add the egg and vanilla paste and beat in until the mixture forms ribbons when you lift the whisk.
3. Sieve in the plain flour and fold through the mix. Add the broken mini eggs and stir through. Chill the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.
4. Grease and line two baking trays with baking paper. Scoop out one tablespoon per cookie, spacing well apart, and top some with a whole mini egg.
5. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove when they’re still soft, and let them cool and harden on the tray.
Watch: This slow-cooker hot chocolate recipe is what dreams are made of
It’s not low calorie, let’s be honest. But it really is a golden Wonka ticket of a treat.
Makes: 9 squares
50g milk or dark chocolate, broken up
80g pack of gold-dusted mini eggs.
1. Grease and line a 10” x 10” (25.4cm) tin with baking paper. If you don’t have the right sized tin, line a larger one and make a rim with foil.
2. In a large bowl, mix the flour and sugar, and rub in the butter gradually until a soft dough forms. Press into the tin, flatten the top, and bake for 20 minutes until golden.
3. Let it cool in the tin. Make the caramel – add the ingredients to a small, non-stick pan over medium heat, and stir continually. Bring to the boil, then lower heat, stirring, until you have a thick caramel. Note, bits of sugar will solidify – sieve these out if you prefer.
4. Spread the caramel over the shortbread, and leave to set.
5. For the topping, melt the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water, or in the microwave. Spread over the cooled caramel, and top with halved golden eggs. Leave to cool before cutting into squares.

Luckily Food Network has some great ideas for using them up, helping you take the rut out of leftover food.
But these aren't your average hash and deviled egg recipes. Here you'll find a hearty lentil soup with ham (pictured above), jambalaya with ham and eggs, salmon salad with crumbled hard-boiled eggs and even Scotch eggs. If you don't know what that last one is, you'll have to read on to find out.

Salade Nicoise — A classic salade Nicoise always includes wedges of hard-boiled eggs. Try Melissa d'Arabian's recipe, which features a lemon-olive vinaigrette.
