Recycling chocolate

Do you need to? Have you plenty?
The boys this year got a selection of small eggs, no packaging apart from some foil and best of all, it could not be found in the shop. One of those new pleasures, did we stock it or did we actually make the effort to get something different.
The Easter treasure trail was indoors this year but nevertheless, they still raced about in search of chocolate. The dog had to be restrained until the boys thought they had found every single bit of chocolate and then, she sniffed them out. No chocolate for her just a different treat.

You could get bored with chocolate.....well maybe not in this household but what to do with all the broken chocolate that remains?

The above little cake is made with a chocolate sponge base ( 2 eggs, 4 oz butter, 4 oz caster sugar, 3 oz self raising flour and 1 oz of cocoa). Topped by a chocolate ganache made with chocolate and double cream decorated with some little chocolate eggs.

Healthy is debatable, but yummy nevertheless. The boys played cricket in the garden for a while losing all balls to the neighbours garden and then whizzed in for a delicate little plateful.

Not a single one left.....

Not a bad Easter Monday after all!
