Every year, as Easter approaches and Creme Eggs once again line the shelves of every store, we are reminded why we love this annual holiday. All thoughts of other Easter candy are eradicated as we bite through the thick chocolate shell of a Creme Egg to reveal the soft, sugary, fondant filling. As the Easter weekend approaches, and therefore our time for eating Creme Eggs becomes shorter and shorter, it’s time we try and incorporate them into everything. There is no chocolate recipe that isn’t improved by the addition of Creme Eggs.
Creme Egg Brownies
Rich, chocolaty, gooey brownies can only be improved by one extra addition: Creme Eggs. Half way through baking, remove the brownies from the oven, press in as many Creme Eggs as you can manage, before returning them to the oven. Nuggets of chocolate shell and melted fondant filling will ooze out of every brownie. We’re not sure we can help ourselves from continuing to make these all year round.
Creme Egg Chocolate Bark
Why would we not want to melt chocolate, add crushed Creme Eggs and caramel eggs, pour over more chocolate, and drizzle over white chocolate? There can be no reason: This is the easiest, chocolatiest recipe, which satisfies all our Easter chocolate cravings.
Creme Egg Hot Chocolate
Easter falls early this year, so it’s likely there’ll still be a chill in the air. Don’t despair: This isn’t all bad news, as it means we have the perfect excuse to drink endless mugs of our new favorite Creme Egg hot chocolate. Simply follow this hot chocolate recipe, but swap half the chocolate for Creme Eggs. For a final step, top with whipped cream and garnish with a Creme Egg.
Creme Egg Milkshake
Chocolate milkshakes are given an Easter twist by adding homemade fondant cream to the chocolate ice cream, and of course, garnishing it with a cracked Creme Egg. This creamy treaty is perfect for kids and adults to make and enjoy together over the Easter weekend.
Creme Egg Pop Tarts
Take your absolute favorite, nostalgic childhood treat and add in some Creme Eggs for the ultimate Pop Tart. A simple pastry crust is stuffed with gently melting Creme Eggs, before being baked and finally topped with a shiny chocolate glaze.
Creme Egg Stuffed Chocolate Cookies
You may not have realized that your best chocolate cookies were actually missing something, until you try stuffing them with a Creme Egg. Using your best chocolate chip cookie recipe — this one would be perfect — make the cookie dough, and buy some mini Creme Eggs. Take about 2 tablespoons of your cookie dough, flatten it a little with your hand, place the egg in the middle, and wrap the dough around it, making sure it’s well sealed. Chill the spheres of dough for at least 1 hour before returning to your cookie recipe, and baking to melted chocolate perfection.
