Egg-cellent

Remember when I posted this with the link to a recipe for homemade Cadbury eggs? Yesterday I finally made them. Here's how I did it.



Homemade Cadbury Eggs

Ingredients:
  • 12 oz milk chocolate chips or almond bark
  • 1/2 c light corn syrup
  • 1/4 c softened room temp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2.5 c powdered sugar
  • Silicone egg mold



I got this silicone egg mold from a Joann's Fabric store. Also available on Amazon.

1) Melt chocolate in microwave using 30 second intervals, stirring at each interval.
2) Spoon into egg crevices, and smooth up sides with the back of a small spoon. You should have about have the chocolate remaining. Refrigerate.
3) Cream together butter, corn syrup and vanilla.
4) Mix in 1/2 c at a time powdered sugar. After the first cup add vegetable oil.
5) Continue to mix in sugar 1/2 c at a time until done. If this becomes hard for your mixer switch to mixing by hand. 
6) Remove egg molds from refrigerator and spoon tablespoon sized balls of cream into eggs, flattening with back of a spoon.
7) Microwave remaining chocolate for 30 seconds then spoon on top of eggs, sealing in the cream. Use a spoon to 
smooth if needed. Refrigerate for an hour then remove from molds.
8) If wanted, cut out pieces of foil, wrap and give out to friends!

  1. Wow. Those look amazing!! (And yet I don't think I have the energy to make them, even though they sound pretty easy...) Do they taste the same as Creme Eggs?

  5. I don't know if they tasted exactly like the Cadbury ones but they're delicious enough that I don't care.

    @Stacey: haha I don't know how well they'd hold up in the mail. If they got smashed that would be quite a mess.

  6. These look so cool! I hate cooking/baking/anything kitchen related though so I think I'd have to just buy the Cadbury ones lol! I'm sure they were tasty!!
