Left Over Easter Eggs? Super Easy Fridge Cake!

Easter! Little Sir was super excited about Easter this year.  Last year he was quite confused about why there were suddenly chocolate eggs in the house, but this year he is very much on board! He’s been learning all about the meaning of Easter in Reception and taking great joy in informing us all about it. (Did you know that we have chocolate eggs because they look like the stone in front of the tomb?? Me neither – I’m not convinced he’s right about that one, but he was pretty insistent!!).  But the biggest draw for him and Little Miss have to be the influx of eggs we ended up with on Easter Sunday!  Almost two weeks later, we’ve made a great dent in them, but we still have lots of left over Easter Eggs, and honestly, the kids are pretty much done with eating chocolate.  What to do with it?

Left Over Easter Eggs

So I figured the easiest way to get rid of it was to do some baking. Our go to dish for chocolate has always been a version of Tiffin.  Tiffin is basically a chocolate fridge cake requiring very little cooking (in fact only melting is required) made with chocolate, digestive biscuits, dried fruit and a bit of golden syrup.  The best thing is that we always have these ingredients in the house! And really you can throw anything into it and it’ll turn out fabulously!  Those lovely left over Easter Eggs are now a gorgeously gooey, crunchy dessert and will be eaten up in no time!

Left Over Easter Eggs This dessert is super easy to make and takes only minutes to put together! What’s not to like!!

  1. First of all, break up the left over Easter Eggs into smallish pieces and place them and the butter in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water until melted.

  3. Stir until all of the ingredients are fully coated in the chocolate.
  4. Line a loaf tin or a large shallow baking tray with cling film and pour in the mix.

    These look so good Cherry! I’ll have to convert the recipe to the British system (I’m an engineer and I wished the US joined the rest of the world in using the metric system!). Good idea for left over eggs!
