Putting leftover chocolate to good use

Our bloggers are a pretty nifty bunch when it comes to using up ingredients in their cupboards and fridges but we had a pretty tough challenge for them. We asked bloggers to create some recipes using up left over chocolate from Easter. We know, we know, what is left over chocolate we hear you cry? If you don’t have any left lingering around then we’ll forgive you for picking up some more and trying some of these super recipes!
