We all know that Easter comes hand in hand with chocolate. Even before the long weekend arrives, presents of Easter bunnies and stacks of chocolate eggs can leave us with mounds of leftovers.

Rather than consign them to the back of the cupboard, why not turn your chocolatey treats into delicious cakes and bakes instead? Here are six of our favourite chocolate-inspired recipes.
