Cadbury Creme Eggs are one of the best selling candies of the Easter season. The traditional eggs have a milk chocolate shell and are filled with white and yellow fondant that resembles the interior of a “real” egg. They’re sweet and satisfying. Over the years, there have been several variations on the classic creme eggs. These include chocolate-filled eggs and caramel-filled eggs. This year, I spotted Cadbury Creme Egg Cookies, a new creme egg spinoff that I just couldn’t resist trying.
The cookies consist of a chocolate wafer cookie that is topped with layers of white and yellow creme filling and enrobed in milk chocolate. They’re well-packaged, and my cookies were completely intact when I opened up the container. Unlike the creme eggs, the filling in these cookies has a consistency that is very similar to marshmallow fluff. It is light and creamy, but stiffer than the oozy filling found inside the eggs, which makes eating them much less messy. Those who find the creme eggs to be too sweet should find a better balance of filling and chocolate in these cookies.The cookies have a mild chocolate flavor that doesn’t overwhelm the creme filling. I found that I wanted them to be even more indulgent when I was eating them plain – more chocolate, more filling please! – but they were excellent once I paired them with a cup of coffee.
