Are Cadbury Creme Eggs gluten free?
Yes, Cadbury Creme Eggs are gluten free, which means that their ingredients do not contain any gluten.
What to do with leftover Easter eggs?
In our household we’d have bunches of easter eggs from friends and family, sometimes we’d come home from school after winning a few awards with some Easter eggs. So, we’d have loads of Easter eggs and few stomachs. And you can only imagine what chocolate does to children! I remember our mum used to smash up the chocolate eggs and put it in a jar for us kids. We’d come home from school absolutely ravenous and something to console us on the journey home was a sweet treat.
Theres so many different ways you can use this chocolate into other recipes, particularly fudge!

Cadbury Creme Egg fudge recipe
Our Cadbury Creme Egg fudge recipe requires you to crack open a few of these bad boys. We want to expose that oozey gooey fondant filling, creme eggs represent!
This fudge can be adorned with a sprinkle of pastel sprinkles if you’re feeling extra seasonal. We’d also like to mention that you can switch up the chocolate type in this recipe. If you’re a bit of a dark chocolate fiend or if you’re on the other end of the scale and love the sweetness white chocolate offers then add some extra indulgence.
However, you know what they say: opposites attract. Make the the same fudge recipe used in our Mini Cadbury creme eggs fudge recipe (obviously opt for Creme eggs, instead of the Mini Eggs. Or hey, use both).
Equipment and tools for Cadbury Creme Egg recipes
- Large microwave safe bowl
- Measuring cups
- Silicone spatula
- Rolling pin
- Sandwich bag
- 8x8inch baking tray lined with parchment paper
- Airtight container
- Start off by removing the outer foil and splitting the creme eggs. You’ll want to be careful when doing this, so we recommend adult supervision at all times. You can even crush them as well, use a rolling pin and press firmly down onto the creme egg. You will find it easier to do so if you gently warm the eggs in the microwave first. Note: you do not want melted chocolate, so 10 seconds in the microwave is more that sufficient.
- In the large mixing bowl, place the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips into the bowl. Now is the time to add the butter too.
- Melt the chocolate mixture in the microwave on the high setting in short 40 second intervals. Use your spatula to mix and scrape the bowl each time.
- Once it has all melted, the fudge mixture should be very thick when stirring and may start to come away from the sides of the bowl.
- This is the time to introduce the corn syrup. Mix until well combined.
- You can add some of the creme eggs if you want the fondant icing to seep throughout the fudge. Don’t worry if the creme eggs start to melt. This will add to the creamy texture and create beautiful swirls.
- Pour the fudge mixture into the prepared tin, hopefully you left enough of the parchment for it to be hanging over the sides.
- Using the spatula, press the fudge down into the pan so that it lays even and sprinkle pastel sprinkles.
- Squish the remaining Cadbury eggs into the fudge as and how you like. It doesn’t have to be perfect. We’ve chosen to use the remaining left over Mini Eggs from our last Easter fudge recipe.
- Let the fudge cool down completely.
- After it has been left to cool, you can place it into the fridge to set for a further 2/3 hours.
- Now using the parchment hanging over the sides of the baking tray, carefully lift the fudge out. Place it onto a cutting board.
- Cut and serve using a sharp knife into small one inch squares. You should get 64 pieces! (We’ve doubled this recipe as it serves as a gift).
- Place the fudge in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2/3 weeks.
