Want to be a hero this Easter? Make your own Cadbury Creme Eggs.
Homemade-Cadbury-EggsFew week ago I had my first taste of asparagus. I may have been jumping the gun a bit, but for me, abundance of fresh stacked asparagus symbolize spring more than the presence of tulips and the gentle warmth of sun. (Here, We are still waiting for that sun.)

Anyway, there is another taste that has become a spring tradition, which reminds me,  Have you ever notice there are certain desserts that are popular around the same time year after year?  Snow-Drop cookies for Christmas, red velvet anything for Valentine’s day, anything pumpkin or congealed cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving, carrot cake and Cadbury Creme Eggs for Easter. Yep, you guessed right, this little chocolate tradition is egg-shaped and stuffed with a creamy center that oozes sweetness and of course I’m talking about Cadbury Creme Eggs. Depending on your opinion, they’re either delicious or a tasteless sugar bomb, but in every case, you can do better at home with a few ingredients and some time.
So you want to be a hero this Easter? Make your own Cadbury Creme Eggs.

  3. Transfer ⅓ of the filling to another bowl and color it with yellow food coloring.

  9. Roll the yellow mixture into balls and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  10. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes or so. Remove from freezer and scoop an amount of white mixture and flatten it into a circle.
  11. Place yellow ball in the middle and wrap the white around it forming into an egg shape.
  12. Return to prepared sheet and place in freezer until the egg shapes are solid.
