DIY Cadbury Creme Eggs

My kids are not fans of Easter Chocolate.

Every year we do the egg hunt and not one egg ever gets eaten.

I buy chocolate bunnies and they go untouched until I eventually find them at the bottom of a drawer and they get tossed in the garbage.

So this Easter they are getting home made treats.

We are all huge fans of Cadbury Crème Eggs but I am not a huge fan of the price.

A few years ago I decided I would try my hand at making my own. They were delicious but aesthetically awful. I dipped them in chocolate and, well lets just say they didn’t look so appealing.

This time around I thought that molds might be a better option. I ended up buying lollipop molds which I think will help in avoiding the dreaded chocolate covered hands around the white couch issue.

Here is what you will need

1/2 corn syrup

1/4 tsp salt

3 cups icing sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 bag milk chocolate chips

Combine everything in your mixer (except the chocolate) or stir for several minutes by hand until everything is combined and smooth.

Remove 1/3 of the mix and colour it yellow

Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes. As you can see from the picture it is a sticky mess and impossible to work with unless it is cold.

While the crème is setting up you can melt your chocolate and spoon a small amount of chocolate into the molds. Don’t add too much or you won’t have enough room for the crème.

Oil your hands so the crème doesn’t stick to you.

Take a teaspoon of the white, roll it into a ball and flatten.

Roll a small amount of yellow and place it in the middle of the white.

Wrap the white around the yellow and place in the mold. Add your lollipop sticks and press into the crème.

Cover with chocolate and smooth.

Let set for 20 minutes before removing from the mold.

So cute, delicious and easy.

Happy Easter!
