Ideas for leftover chocolate buttercream frosting

Any ideas what to do with leftover chocolate buttercream frosting? Prefer it not be truffle centers but open to suggestions that will prevent waste even if it is candy. If candy is the only option I'll be grateful for that too. I just don't know what my options may or may not be. Thanks in advance.

When I was a kid, we just spread it on graham crackers slapped another graham cracker (wafer, for Canadian friends) on top and ate it!

Well sealed, it can be frozen and revived at a later date.

Mom would often make extra just so we could make these! Very yummy and they can be stored in a cookie jar too.

Hindsight being what it is, this whole idea of "leftover buttercream frosting" is hilarious. So much for wishful thinking. Oh well. Hubby's got chocolate frosting up to his elbows. I'll be smelling chocolate in my sleep all night - assuming we sleep.;-)

Make some cupcakes. Frost them with the leftover buttercream frosting.

Each time I went out to Calif. to visit friends, I would make that chocolate. The husband would stand there all the time waiting for the cake bowl first so he could clean the beaters and anything else that had cocolate on it. Then he would watch me frost the cake with the frosting recipe on the back of the Hershey's can of cocoa. Every time I reached into the bowl to get more frosting for the cake, you could hear him gasp with worry that there wouldn't be enough left over for him. It was rather comical. I knew from making the recipe so many times before that there would be plenty left over for him. But it was fun to tease him and make like I was going to throw the leftover out. He never left my side while I made that cake. Waiting for it to cool was torture for him.
