25 Clever Things to Do with Leftover Easter Eggs
Don’t we all end up with too much chocolate after Easter? Especially if you have kids!
But rather than eating it as is, why not make one of these leftover Easter egg recipes?
It’ll breathe new life into the candy and give you an excuse to devour it all!
1. Easter Egg Stuffed Crescent Rolls
Easter egg-stuffed crescent rolls are the best excuse to have chocolate for breakfast.
Because we all overdo it when those Cadbury Eggs finally come back in season, right?
That said, you could use any filled chocolate egg here. For example, I love those caramel-filled ones!
2. Easter Egg Cheesecake
Easter in the U.K. looks a little different. They don’t really do Easter baskets, and they have big, hollow chocolate eggs with all kinds of extras.
You can even get them with gifts, like mugs!
And that’s what you’ll need here. A big hollow egg you can fill with cheesecake and a yummy biscuit base.
3. Fudgy Mini Egg Brownies
Mini Eggs are probably my favorite Easter treat. My Grandma always gave them out in spring, and I just love the pastel colors.
But rather than eating them from the bag, this recipe breaks them up and scatters them over fudgy brownies.
And you could even melt chocolate eggs instead of using chocolate chips!
4. Easter Leftover Candy Chocolate Trifle

5. Leftover Easter Candy Cookies
Speaking of Peeps: these cookies have chopped Peeps and Mini Eggs in the mix!

6. Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies
What’s better than warm fudgy brownies to end a cool spring day? Fudgy brownies filled with Creme Eggs!
Each bite of this is an explosion of chocolate and sweet fondant goodness.
They’re incredibly rich, so you only need a small square. Though I won’t judge, so take as much as you like!
7. Mini Egg Chocolate Biscuit Cake
Like an icebox cake, biscuit cakes don’t need to be baked. But instead of a creamy filling, it’s cookies covered in chocolate.
Use your Easter chocolate and melt it with condensed milk – kind of like fudge.
Then add any chopped candies you like and plenty of biscuit (cookie) pieces.
Let it set in the fridge, slice, and enjoy!
8. Easter Fudge
This crazy fudge is overflowing with fun extras, like chopped Creme Eggs, Jelly Beans, and festive sprinkles.
The white base makes the colors pop.

9. No Bake Easter Slice
If you’re looking for a super simple dessert that’s great for snacking, this is it.
Chop up all the leftover candy you have. Then melt the plain stuff with condensed milk.
Chocolate lovers will go crazy for this rich and tasty treat.

Easter egg rocky road is a quick dessert you’ll want to enjoy from Spring to winter.
But between the chocolate eggs, peanuts, marshmallows, and chocolate, it’s definitely Easter-approved.
Use chopped-up Peeps if you have them, and don’t be afraid to tweak the recipe. It would be great fantastic with Jelly Beans, too!
21. Boozy Easter Egg Cocktail
Okay, here’s one for the grown-ups.
And how sensational does it look? It’s the ultimate Easter cocktail, and everyone that sees it will want one.
Of course, this doesn’t have to be served in a chocolate egg. But then, what’s the point?
