Those familiar with the season of Sinterklaas know that giant chocolate letters were profusely distributed throughout the Netherlands this past weekend.
[For those who are peacefully unaware of this peculiar Dutch holiday, David Sedaris has cleverly explained everything you need to know here.]
If you were lucky enough to receive a letter (or five) this year, you might be wondering what to do with such a reserve of chocolate—besides simply eating it. Yes, other options do exist.
For the sake of variety, here are nine recipes for making use of temporary chocolate excesses:
1. Chocolate cereal.
3. Chocolate fondue
4. Dark chocolate cookies with pistachios and milk chocolate chunks.
5. Real hot chocolat.
6. Chocolate banana bread pudding.
8. Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.
9. Chocolate chip pancakes
That should be enough
