In my thirty-something years on this Earth, I’ve found that people fall into two camps: the Cadbury Creme Eggs Are Life Camp or the Wouldn’t Eat A Cadbury Creme Egg If You Paid Me Camp. I fall solidly into the former and have since I was a wee lassie, but I get why they’d turn some off. There’s incredibly sweet, and the filling is pretty much indiscernible (is it cream? Fondant? What is that stuff?) Still love ‘em and always will, so voila, Homemade Cadbury Creme Eggs!

I was curious as to how one would go about making these Homemade Cadbury Creme Eggs from scratch, and I’m apparently not alone in this. I found this recipe from Not Without Salt and adapted it slightly. I wanted a looser filling, so I reduced the powdered sugar a bit. I didn’t have orange blossom water, so I substituted a tiny bit of almond extract along with the vanilla.

Homemade Cadbury Creme Eggs are labor intensive and messy, let me just say that. But they’re so fun to make, especially with kids. You’ll need some toothpicks to dip the eggs in chocolate with and a few large potatoes to stick the toothpicks in after dipping so the chocolate can solidify without messing up the finish.

And how do they taste? Delicious. I wouldn’t advise eating more than one, as they are incredibly rich, but they are a lovely homage to the OG with a more toothsome twist.
