Before Easter, we are always looking forward to the seasonal Easter sweets that the Easter Bunny leaves behind in our homes. Or just waiting until the day after Easter to get all the candy half price. Once the excitement dies down, however, we are left with a pile of sugar and the upcoming poolside season of Summer. Sorry, that was depressing. But we all needed to hear it. So, to solve this problem, you’re going to do the following:
Step 1: Invite 5 to 10 friends over for coffee and desserts.
Step 2: Pull together all the Easter chocolate and candy you can find.
Step 3: Select a recipe below that best suits what sugary resources you have.
Step 4: Make all your friends help you eat some Easter sweets.
For this recipe, you’ll need some brownie mix, whipped cream and a few other miscellaneous items. It looks so creative and your guests won’t know that you’re just trying to get rid of chocolate -which is a major bonus for you.

For bark, throw in whatever candy is lying around and place in the fridge or freezer to chill. Send your friends home with goodie bags filled with bark and they’ll have thought they went to a party where you were just really thoughtful. Not trying to get rid of candy.

Score some “cookie” points with your pals when you bring out a bowl of cookie dough, packed with their most crave-able easter sweets. Add onto pretzels, or opt for an ice cream bar where this is a topping.

This is the answer for all those Creme Eggs you bought when you got a little too excited about seeing them appear at the beginning of Easter season. It’s so rich you may have to send some home with your guests instead of expecting them to eat it all at once!
