What to do with leftover Easter chocolates?

Ever had a problem with too much chocolate left over from Easter? I do! Every year, I am left with certain varieties that I don’t particularly enjoy and end up with a stock in my pantry.

Like everything else, chocolate too has a shelf life. If stored properly, it can last as long as a year. But who wants to wait that long?

Use your chocolate in baking. You don’t always need to buy morsels or baking chocolate, most candy bars work fine. Here is a simple recipe that takes only a few minutes to prepare. You will find most, if not all ingredients at hand already. It makes a special treat and your guests would think you have spent hours making it.

Easiest Chocolate Soufflé (serves 4)

¾ cup chocolate (chopped up) You can use semi sweet, milk or dark as you prefer.

4 oz butter

2 eggs

¾ cup sugar

6 tablespoon all purpose flour

In a microwave safe bowl, mix the butter and chocolate. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Gently stir and let cool. In another bowl, combine eggs, sugar and flour. Add the chocolate mixture and mix well. Spray 4 small ramekins with cooking or baking spray. Fill each ramekin with chocolate mixture dividing evenly. Don’t fill more than 2/3rd of the way. Bake in oven at 400F for 20 minutes. The soufflé will rise up. Sprinkle powdered sugar, decorate with berries and serve immediately.

    1. Hi Sucheta,I saw you on the marriage ref and got to this wtsibee. I am originally from Bangalore, India and currently live in Dallas, TX; I am a foodie too and love traveling. My husband is not much into travel though. So I want to start traveling alone for pleasure and for some volunteer work. I found it amazing how you have managed to travel, create a blog and also do volunteer work. Great job !! You really inspire some of us who have not been able to/ or taken the time to do until now. I was interested to know how you managed travel solo ( if you book it through group travel agencies or just managed to book online and travel single )? I found few links from this wtsibee for volunteer travel opportunities and have been fascinated by the idea, and see if I can pursue few.Anyways, great job and the marriage ref show was hilarious & awesome !!! Appreciate your reply,Thanks,- Shilpa

      1. Hi Shilpa, Thank you for watching the show & I’m glad you are inspired to travel too. I booked all my volunteer trips through different organizations & always met up with other people also traveling solo. It is fascinating to see what a different experience you have when you travel alone. You actually make an effort to talk to the locals & get to meet interesting people.

        Anyways, we offer volunteer trips too, so hope to see you on one of them.
