Homemade Almost Cadbury Creme Eggs


One Year Ago:  Seafood Alfredo

My daughter had friends over today for a play date and I wanted to whip up a fast Easter-themed treat for them.  These might not taste exactly like the Cadbury Creme Eggs but they are cute, fun to make, very sweet and tasty! 

Ingredients:
Yields 8 eggs
  • 1 c confectioners' sugar
  • 1 c marshmallow fluff 
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract 
  • Yellow icing coloring
  • Milk chocolate 


Directions:

To prevent sticking, grease your hands with butter as needed.  In a large bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, marshmallow fluff and vanilla extract.

Separate 1/4 of the dough.  Dip a toothpick into the yellow icing coloring and knead it into the dough.

Separate the white dough into eight pieces.  Roll out a thin layer of the white dough in 3-inch circles.


Separate the yellow dough into eight pieces.  Roll each piece into small balls.

Place a yellow dough ball in the center of a white dough circle.

 

Bring up the edges of the white dough to seal around the yellow dough ball and shape into an egg.  Repeat with the remaining dough until you have eight eggs.  Place them on parchment paper and in the freezer (for easier handling when dipping in chocolate).

Meanwhile, melt the milk chocolate in 30-second increments.  Remove the eggs from the freezer and coat in the melted chocolate.  Decorate with candy pieces, if desired. 

Place the eggs back on the parchment paper and set them back in the freezer until the chocolate is hardened, about 5 minutes.

Enjoy!
