  • Fuss Free Flavors turned popular Cadbury Creme Eggs into an even more indulgent Easter treat by making a batch of Cadbury Creme Egg Fudge. The homemade fudge has smashed creme eggs stirred into it, which gives the creamy fudge a marbled effect and still captures the familiar flavor of the chocolate eggs. The fudge is topped with crushed Cadbury mini eggs for a colorful finishing touch.
  • Creme eggs also play a roll in the Anti Gravity Easter Brownie Nest from Giraffes Can Bake. This dessert is amazing to look at, as it has a large Cadbury creme egg suspended over a chocolate nest, spilling filling down onto the cake. The cake starts with a rich brownie layer that is covered in ganache and surrounded by chocolate pieces to form the best. The chocolate egg is suspended above the cake with a little help from some hidden wooden dowels, then filled with additional creme filling that flows down onto the cake, adding sweetness and hiding those dowels before serving. It’s very impressive – and very tasty, too.
  • Instead of buying all your Easter candy this year, consider making some homemade chocolate eggs. I’ve made Homemade Peanut Butter Eggs before and Femme Fraiche has a recipe for Maple Cream Easter Eggs. The filling is a frosting-like confection that is flavored with sweetened condensed milk and maple extract. The filling is thick enough that it can be easily shaped into eggs by hand. The formed maple centers can then be dipped in melted chocolate and decorated to suit your tastes. The filling will melt in your mouth, melding with the chocolate for a delightful treat.
  • If you happen to have a leftover Cadbury Creme Egg around the kitchen this time of year, you must try making Cadbury Creme Egg Coffee from Brewed Daily with it. The drink is easy to make because all you need to do is melt the egg into hot coffee for a dessert-like coffee drink that has a hint of milk chocolate to it. You can also make flavored variations by picking up creme eggs with other centers, such as chocolate creme and caramel. These are fun to make at an Easter brunch, as you can simply put out a bowl of whole creme eggs when you serve coffee and let your guests make their own.
  • Throwback Recipe: My Apple Slab Tart is an easy to make variation of a traditional apple pie. Lightly sweetened apples are piled into a pie crust, which is folded into a rectangle and baked directly on a baking sheet. The tart looks and tastes fantastic. Serve it for brunch with a dollop of yogurt or dessert with a scoop of ice cream.
