Easter Leftovers Slab

Easter has been and the house is overflowing with Easter Eggs. Lots of people have Easter egg meltdowns. Why not try something a bit different this year?
Easter eggs

My son loves to make these slabs; we discovered this recipe when we wanted to make an edible gift to take to a Christmas party. For some reason making something with all those eggs and sweeties doesn't seem anywhere as naughty as eating them individually, bit like long car journeys warrant a sweet feast! Sorry going to make you wait right till the end to see the finished result hee hee!

400g left over Easter eggs
200g milk chocolate
200g white chocolate

For the Topping 
Any leftover sweets you have - any big sweets chop or bash into bite sized pieces!
We like: Jelly Bellies, Crunchie, Rolos, Twix, Munchies, Snickers, Haribo, Smarties, Mars Bar - well anything really!

Pile of sweets

1. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. Melt the chocolate - if using different colours, melt separately.
3. Allow the chocolate to cool slightly.
4. Pour most of the chocolate onto the tray.
5. Swirl them together with a skewer, or end of a knife to get a marble effect - or get creative and make your own design.
6. Sprinkle over the sweets.

I like to eat mine with Pickled Onion crisps... but guess that's just me - I think!
