Homemade Cadbury Eggs

Pin It

Don’t you love this small treat trend?

Two bites, or even one.

Less guilt.


Then we won’t feel so bad for eating one five of them, right!?

I recently had a friend come up to me and tell me “Cadbury eggs would be awesome!!!”

(wink, wink, hint, hint, nudge, nudge)

So here I am. 27 hours later. Posting about chocolate eggs bursting with a fondant-like filling.

I just had to, for Easter, ya know!?

Even better, I bet you have all this stuff in your pantry.

*Crossing fingers!*

Cadbury Crème Eggs

Yield: 12 chocolate crème eggs


1/2 cup light corn syrup

1/4 cup butter

3/4 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 1/4 cups powdered sugar, sifted

3 drops yellow food coloring

1 package (16 oz.) Chocolate CANDIQUIK® Candy Coating


Mix the corn syrup, butter, vanilla and salt in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth.

Add the powdered sugar, a small amount at a time, mixing by hand after each addition. Stir until creamy.

Remove about 1/3 of the sugar mixture and place in a small bowl.

Add the yellow food coloring; mix well.

Cover both mixtures and place in the freezer for 1-2 hours or until firm.

Remove the yellow mixture from the freezer, and while still cold, roll into marble-sized balls and place on wax paper.  Place back in the freezer for 20 minutes. Hint: keep these very cold at all times – they’re sticky!!!

Wrap a small amount of the white filling around the yellow balls.

Form into the shape of eggs and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Repeat until done and return to the freezer for another 20-30 minutes.

Melt 1 package of Chocolate CANDIQUIK  according to the directions on the package. Coat eggs in chocolate and set on wax paper to dry. (Another hint: you may want to pull one or two eggs out at a time to dip and keep the remaining in the freezer until their time to be dipped!)

And if you want to be cute,  “etch” on the Cadbury cross with a toothpick.

Tell Me Something Sweet

    Oh why did I have to find these?! Cadbury Eggs are my absolute weakness. The only thing that keeps me from being 300 lbs is that they only come around once a year. Now that I can make them anytime, my self control will be greatly challenged.
