5 Delicious Creme Egg recipes

Spring is here. The birds are chirping, the ground is thawing, and the cadbury bunnies are coming out of their hiding holes to give us some delicious creme-filled chocolate eggs.

Cadbury Creme Eggs might be my favorite Easter-time treat. Eating one is like eating 50 candies all at once. The luxurious chocolate shell opens its way into a rich, gooey and creamy inside. They are so heavenly, I think they must part of the true meaning of Easter.

So, in celebration of these delightful morsels, I found a way you can use their goodness to improve other desserts for your whole family to enjoy. Here are five (5) recipes using Cadbury Creme Eggs.

Prep time: 25 mins

Chill time: 2 hours

  • 2tbs corn syrup

  • 150g graham crackers

  3. Roughly chop the graham crackers and mix them with the apricots and mini marshmallows

  4. Add the dry mix into the chocolate and mix to combine. Make sure everything is well coated in chocolate or the rocky road won’t stick together

  5. Press the mixture into the tin using the back of a spatula or wooden spoon, then push in the whole Mini Creme Eggs. Space them evenly apart so there will be a small piece of egg in each square. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours to set

  6. Use a sharp knife to slice into 24 squares. To keep it as solid as possible, store in the fridge until ready to eat

Top tip:

If you want to use full sized Creme Eggs instead of mini ones, simply swap the 9 mini Creme Eggs for 2 full sized ones. Follow the recipe as normal and when you get to step 5, cut up the Creme Eggs into quarters and place into the rocky road mixture – then continue as per the method!
