Cadbury Creme Eggs-Imitation Recipe

Cadbury Creme Eggs are definitely a guilty pleasure of mine every spring. There's just something about them that's so yummy! I saw this recipe, and knew I had to try. As you can see by the picture below, they turned out a little messy. They're also overly sweet-too much for me! The inside gets really sticky so it's hard to get into an egg shape, unless you're using a mold. The recipe did suggest using cake-pop sticks to dip into chocolate, and I'd definitely recommend it!

Total Time:
Makes 18 'eggs'
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Yellow food coloring (optional)
  • 12 ounces milk chocolate chips
Cream corn syrup, butter, and vanilla with a hand mixer. Sift in the powdered sugar and beat until incorporated. If you are going to use food color, separate about a third of the mixture and stir in yellow food coloring. Put all the filling into the fridge (or freezer) as it is easier to work with when chilled.

Once chilled, roll into balls, and place the 'yolk' inside the outer egg. Place on a baking sheet with parchment paper to keep from sticking. Place back into the refrigerator to chill.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, or closely watch while melting in the microwave. Dip filling into chocolate and place on parchment paper. Place in freezer to harden.
