Too much chocolate?
Limiting the amount of chocolate that each child gets or can eat during the day is a good idea. No one wants tummy troubles and sugar highs. If you have lots of leftover chocolate, you could make a dent in it by using it to make good old chocolate Cornflake cakes or hot chocolate. Or you could be a little more adventurous.
