Think you know how to eat a Cadbury’s Creme Egg? But have you tried one baked into a brownie, or (be still my beating heart) deep fried? If you love Creme Eggs (and is there really anyone who doesn’t?) then why not whip up one of these treats for Easter…
Boozy Creme Egg Milkshake
Forget all your tried and tested ‘how to eat a Creme Egg’ rituals, the latest way to enjoy one is blended into a drink. Check out this Boozy Creme Egg Milkshake, created by Amber at Food Fanatic, made indulgent with not only the chocolate Cadbury Creme Egg but ice cream too, and spiked with whipped cream vodka.
Deep Fried Creme Egg
It had to happen. The Cadbury Creme Egg is the latest chocolate treat that’s had the deep-fried treatment. Ashton from the blog Something Swanky came up with this recipe, even though she admits “Easter’s not really my thing.” And were they good? “I ate four of them,” she writes. Find the recipe at her website.
Creme Egg Cookies
So what do you get if you smash up Cadbury Creme Eggs and mix them into cookie dough? Well, Creme Egg Cookies, obviously. They’re the creation of Wendy from Daisies and Pie and her recipe makes 12. “Creme Egg cookies are scrummy, you’ll probably be needing a whole lot more than 12,” she warns.
Creme Egg Drizzle Cake
I know. Once you look, you can’t take your eyes off it. Karen from the blog Lavender and Lovage made this chocolate cake, which is decorated with all sorts of choccy treats, including Cadbury’s Creme Eggs of course.
Creme Egg Cupcakes
So we’ve all pushed an unwrapped Creme Egg into the top of a thickly-frosted cupcake, but have you ever thought of baking them inside the cake? Sarah, from the blog Taming Twins did, and they look amazing. Get her recipe - and top tips for making them - on her blog.
Creme Egg Brûlée
And no, not just a regular Crème Brûlée with a chocolate egg stuck into the top of it. Here, the Cadbury Creme Egg is actually blended into the custardy centre, too. Get the recipe for the Creme Egg Brûlée at Peabody’s blog, Culinary Concoctions.
Creme Egg Brownies
Making Easter-themed cakes for a party or school bake sale? Then get one of these going in the oven. These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies were baked by Leanne at the blog Leanne Bakes. Now that’s what we’re talking about.
Creme Egg Bundt Cakes
Dom from Belleau Kitchen has lots of baking recipes on his blog, including these little beauties, Mini Creme Egg Easter Bundt Cakes. To make them, you’ll need a regular Creme Egg as well some mini ones to decorate them with. Gorgeous.
Creme Egg Cheesecake
When Sarah from Taming Twins posted the recipe for her Creme Egg Cheesecake, it went viral. Since February, thousands of people have pinned and shared the recipe on social media. And we don’t blame them. Find the recipe (and more tempting photos of the cheesecake) on her blog.
Cadbury Creme Scotch Eggs
OK. Before you start thinking about Creme Eggs coated in pork sausagemeat, don’t panic. For this recipe, the eggs are coated in a cocoa batter and then cookie crumbs. And yes, there is deep frying involved. Find out how to make Cadbury Creme Scotch Eggs at Jessie’s website, Cake Spy.
Creme Egg Ice Cream
A rich home-made ice cream, with chopped Cadbury Creme Eggs dropped in? Well that sounds like a plan. Luckily David from the blog Spiced Blog has gone ahead and made it: Cadbury Creme Egg Ice Cream. Yum.
Creme Egg Bars
Oh, hello, Cadbury Creme Egg Bars. Nic from the blog Nibbles by Nic describes these as “majorly addictive.” They’re made with milk and white chocolate and Mini Creme Eggs placed on top.
Creme Egg Quiche
Before you worry about how chunky chocolate and that gooey, sweet centre will go with bacon or a strong Cheddar, you need to know that this quiche is a sweet one. Phew. And it’s marvellous. Find the full recipe on the Mammasaurus blog.
Creme Egg Brownies
When a recipe starts with a warning and then the words “These brownies are deadly,” you know they’re going to be pretty amazing. Vedika from the blog Hot Chocolate Hits made these Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies, which have a Mini Creme Egg baked into the centre, as well as a fondant layer and chocolate ganache on top. Clever stuff.
Creme Egg Bread
Beautiful, isn't it? Lucy from the Pudding Lane Blog developed this lovely Creme Egg Bread as a way of using up leftover Easter chocolate, and it makes a pretty stunning Easter tea-time treat. Go check out her recipe, if you want to make it yourself.
