Homemade Cadbury Creme Eggs

It's Easter and many peoples favourite treat is the Cadbury Creme egg. Now enjoy it any time of year with this homemade version!!

Homemade Cadbury Creme Eggs

1/2 cup ~ light corn syrup

1/4 cup ~ butter, room temperature

3 cups ~ icing sugar

1 tsp ~ vanilla

1/4 tsp ~ salt

yellow food coloring

1 (12 oz) bag ~ milk chocolate chips

hollow egg molds

1. Cream together the corn syrup, butter and vanilla. Sift in the confectioner’s powdered sugar and beat until incorporated.

2. Take out about a third of the filling and stir in some yellow food coloring.  Put the two bowls in the fridge, as they’re easier to work with once they’re set up a little.  Make little yolk balls out of the yellow mixture.  Place them on some parchment.  Put them back in the fridge or even the freezer to firm up.

3. Scoop an amount of white filling out and flatten it into a circle.  When the yolks are set up, you can start embedding them in the whites.  Place the yolk ball inside, and wrap the white around it.  Stick them in the fridge.

4.  Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in short bursts in the microwave.   Fill the molds with the chocolate and swirl to coat the sides. 

5.  Once the molds are set, plop a filling ball into half of each mold.  Using more melted chocolate, join the two halves of the egg together.  Let set and demold.  The freezer does wonders for this step.

Don’t fret if your eggs break or turn out imperfectly. Just enjoy the taste.
