Easter may be over for this year, but Easter candy will be around for weeks to come. Like Halloween, it is a holiday that features many delicious and unique seasonal products and you probably picked up enough to last you until the next major holiday. These recipes will help you put those leftover Easter goodies to good use!
- Malted Milk Chocolate Brownies will transform a bag of malted chocolate Easter egg candies into something much more decadent: fudgy malted brownies topped with a malted chocolate frosting. They’re loaded with chocolate eggs and topped with them, too. These also look good before Easter, since they’re so colorful!
- A Cadbury Creme Egg Milkshake is exactly what it sounds like – a milkshake made with fondant-filled chocolate Easter eggs. The eggs are blended right in with a mixture of vanilla ice cream and milk, adding sweetness and a nice chocolate flavor to this dessert drink.
- A Cadbury Creme Egg Mocha is a great option if you have just one Cadbury egg leftover. You simply melt the whole egg into a hot cup of coffee – and you can use classic, Chocolate Creme or Caramel-filled eggs – and you have a perfectly sweetened mocha drink in no time at all. Whipped cream is optional.
- Cadbury Creme Egg Ice Cream is a rich homemade choclate ice cream that is loaded with chopped chocolate eggs. The eggs not only add flavor and texture to the ice cream, but they add a funky swirl as their fondant spills out and the ice cream freezes. Serve scoops of this with a cracked (Cadbury) egg on the side!
- Peeps Popcorn is a salty-sweet popcorn treat that pairs perfect with any springtime movie. The popcorn is made with melted Peeps, which give the crisp corn a pop of color and help it hold together in addictive clumps, and is finished with a drizzle of white chocolate.
- Peeps Krispy Treats use a whole lot of Peeps to make classic marshmallow cereal bars a bit more fun. Use the same color of Peeps in your batch and you’ll have a brightly colored marshmallow bar that is head and shoulders above any of the prepackaged versions that you can buy.
- My Peep-Infused Vodka also requires a lot of Peeps, but it is a really fun way to use up a pile of leftover marshmallow chicks or bunnies – and you can use the sweetened, colorful vodka to make some fun brunch cocktails for friends and family long after Easter is over. I recommend starting with a batch of Peep Lemon Drops, personally, especially if you used yellow marshmallows in your batch!
