Have Leftover Valentine's Day Chocolate? Here's How To Use It!


The majority of the time there is an abundance of chocolate leftover after Valentine's Day. I wouldn't say it's the worse problem to have but instead of forcing yourself to eat it for the next couple months, why not reinvent it into cool new ways.


Here are ways to revive that leftover chocolate.


Fondue

The most traditional and efficient way to use up leftover chocolate, fondue! Take the chocolate, melt it in the microwave and add some milk to make it smooth. Serve it with some fresh fruit or whatever you heart desires.


Lip Balm

I bet you wouldn't think this would be on the list of ways to use leftover chocolate. Microwave 3 tablespoons of cocoa butter and mix in 1 piece of chocolate until combined. Combine with the contents of 1 vitamin E capsule and 1/4 teaspoon almond extract. A moisturizing lip balm while also tasting delicious.


Trail Mix

The tastiest trail mixes always have some chocolate chunks. Choose your favourite trail mix items like nuts, seeds, dried fruits, and pretzels, and mix in some chopped up chocolate.


Facial

Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants that are great for the skin. If you have leftover dark chocolate, melt it in the microwave let it cool and spread over your face for a yummy at home facial.


Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn

The perfect sweet and salty snack. Pop some popcorn, melt chocolate and drizzle it over the popcorn. Bake it at 250 degrees F for 30 minutes and stir occasionally.


Hot Chocolate

Another classic way to use leftover chocolate is hot cocoa! Over the stovetop, warm up some milk, add in the chocolate and stir it until completely melted.
