3 chocolate easter-egg cocktails to make at home. Picture supplied
Easter is just over a week away and the long weekend is usually all about family, food and chocolate. 

If you have kids at home, chances are you will have an endless supply of chocolate eggs and bunnies hidden in your fridge or cupboards around the house. 

But the kids don't have to be the only ones who get to enjoy all the chocolate treats this Easter. 

Add an adult twist to your chocolate bunnies by adding these easy-to-make Easter cocktails to your menu. 

Hollow eggs are the most popular treats and they are also a yummy replacement for your traditional cocktail glass. 

Using good quality chocolate and perhaps freezing it before pouring the contents will ensure that the chocolate doesn't melt while you're sipping on your adult drink.
