8 Ways to Reuse Your Leftover Easter Chocolate!

Here are eight insightful ways to use up leftover chocolate without resorting to fondue.


Frozen bananas

1Frozen bananas

Frozen chocolate-banana pops are a simple and refreshing way to satisfy anyone with a sweet tooth. Cut bananas in half, insert popsicle sticks into them, and place them in the freezer for about 20 minutes. In the meantime, melt chocolate pieces in the microwave or double boiler. Then dip frozen bananas in the melted chocolate and roll in your topping of choice: pistachios, coconut, peanuts, crushed candy, and more. Put back in the freezer for 4 to 6 hours and serve. Delish!

Variation on this theme: Make mini peanut butter sandwiches by replacing bread slices with two banana slices. Coat them with melted chocolate and freeze on a baking sheet. Yummy!

3Chocolate pretzels

White, dark, or milk chocolate goes perfectly with the salty taste of pretzels. Just melt chocolate in a bowl, add pretzels, mix to coat, and lay your sweet ‘n’ salty treats out on parchment paper until the chocolate hardens. Simply irresistible!
