Easter is over and you’ve done your best to eat all your chocolate eggs.

For some this is an easy task, but for others it could be quite a challenge.

For many, Easter is synonymous with chocolate and it is estimated that Britons spend a whopping £299million on Easter eggs each year.

If you’re at this point and you still have Easter chocolate leftovers, you might be thinking of other clever ways you can use them.

Don’t get us wrong, we love chocolate, but there are only so many hollow eggs you can eat in a short amount of time.

Fortunately, there are many ways you can use it. Here are some conscious ways to deal with your leftovers, courtesy of SkipsAndBins.

Alternatively, try a simple but delicious sheet cake, like this one from BBC Good Food.

Make alternative chocolate treats

If you still want to try that chocolaty goodness, it’s a good idea to make alternative chocolate treats.

An alternative is a chocolate bomb that can be dipped in warm milk to make the most amazing hot chocolate.

Simply pour the melted chocolate into two dome molds and glue them together as shown here by BBC Good Food.

You can even put some marshmallows inside for a tasty surprise.

If you really can’t take any more chocolate, it’s best to gift it to someone you might appreciate more.

Try your staff room at work, or your kids could gift it to their favorite teacher.

Or better yet, find your next plaque and donate it.

SkipsAndBins also recommends sensible disposal. For example, you can put your unused chocolate in an incinerator that can generate energy that can be reused, although this needs to be done professionally.

Alternatively, chocolate can be composted at home, although it’s important that this is done properly so that harmful bacteria are killed and it can then be used as animal feed.

Recycle cases and packaging

Wrapping and wrappers need to be separated from their contents, so remember to do this if you’re using your chocolate for anything.

A nifty way to do this is to iron out packaging and cover items like pencil cases and notebooks.

You can also use the inserts from chocolate boxes as bookmarks.

If the chocolate comes in a tin, you can use that for your sewing kits or other odds and ends that you have lying around.
