"Here is my take on a Cadbury Creme Egg.... I've been told by credible, non bias sources *cough cough* my husband, that they're better than the original!"

Why I Love This Recipe

Easter has really snuck up on me this year! I know, I know, all the crap in supermakets should have made me aware that it was approaching.... but to be fair, the Supermarkets have had Easter Bunnies for sale since before the new year!

I love baking for Easter, people really do appreciate it so much more than just a lump of chocolate that's been bought at the shops. This one wasn't really a bake so to speak, more of an, assemble and refrigerate kind of deal. I researched alot of Creme Egg recipes before taking on this 'bake', Creme Eggs are my friend Sarahs’ favourite, so I wanted to make it as close to the original as possible but with more flavour (becasue I personally think they just taste like sugar and nothing else). Safe to say I'm not the biggest fan, buuut.... I thought it only fair that Easter Bunny bring Sarah her favourite this year

Starting with the whites (so as not get dye on the beaters first) add your butter, coconut cream and salt into one mixing bowl and beat with electric beaters on a high speed until well combined.
Add sugar gradually, and once the mixture can hold stiff peaks and has turned pale in colour, set it aside.


In your second bowl, combine the butter, condensed milk, vanilla extract, salt, and food colouring with the beaters at a high speed.
Add sugar gradually, and once the mixture can hold stiff peak and has turned pale in colour, set it aside in the fridge to harden slightly.


Meanwhile, boil a kettle as close to your workspace as possible and grab yourself a baking tray.


Un-wrap your hollow eggs and discard the wrappers, hover a sharp knife over the spout of your kettle momentarily once it's started to produce steam, and gently press your warmed knife into the pre-existing join in the chocolate egg to split your eggs in two.
Repeat until all your eggs are halved.


Remove your yolk mix from the fridge and set it up next to your whites’ bowl.


Using teaspoons, spoon whites into each chocolate egg half, press in gently so it spreads to all edges of the egg and the spoon leaves a small divot in the middle.
Repeat until all eggs are filled.


Using different teaspoons, spoon a small amount of yolk mixture into the centre of every second egg half.


Re-boil your kettle and pour boiling water into a large glass (big enough to dip a butter knife into).


Dip your knife into the boiling water and press gently around the cut edges of two of your egg halves (one with a yolk and one without).


While the edges are still partially melted, press the two halves back together, smooth any melted chocolate that pushes out from the join with your fingers and set aside on your baking tray.
Repeat until all your eggs have been re-constructed.


Place baking tray of eggs in the fridge to allow your eggs to set.
