Move over, Halloween and Christmas. Easter has the real candy. Cadbury creme eggs, jelly beans, peanut butter eggs, marshmallow peeps, Cadbury creme eggs, chocolate bunnies. Did I mention Cadbury creme eggs? Because those are my favorite. This year I squealed at Target because I found MINI creme eggs! Seriously, best idea ever (besides the eggs themselves of course)! So how can I make the best candy ever even better? Make it a milkshake.

The idea came to me when I was remembering my trip to Scotland five years ago. I visited around Easter time when we ate at McDonalds. There at the register was a sign for a Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry. Whoa wait! Vanilla ice cream with chunks of chocolate and the fondant cream mixed in?! Why don’t we have this back in the US? (Seriously, why don’t we, McDonalds? Huge money maker!)

For those of you not familiar with the candy, a Cadbury creme egg is a chocolate egg with fondant cream inside. What’s really cool is the middle is white with yellow in the middle to represent an egg and its yolk. However, the cream is very sweet, so you either love it or hate it.

Since an egg is chocolate and cream, I decided to use chocolate ice cream for the base instead of the vanilla used in McFlurries. Of course, I made my own, but feel free to use store-bought.

I actually made my own fondant cream, thanks to Lindsay of Love and Olive Oil’s brownie recipe. Pretty much it’s just corn syrup and powdered sugar. I added some yellow food coloring, but next time I wouldn’t bother since you can’t see it in the milkshake anyway.

Do you know how hard it is to take action shots when you live alone? In one hand, I was adding the cream. In the other, I was auto focusing and shooting. I did manage to get one semi-decent shot.

    Sounds absolutely gorgeous. if you are really short on time though you can do this by putting full fat milk, ice cream ( a good quality one preferably but any wil do and don’t be skimpy use lots of ice cream) and break up a couple of cream eggs. Add all three to your blender. Done. Be careful to chop/smash the cream eggs though or you may break your blender blades.

  2. I want this in my Easter basket! :)

  3. This looks soooooo decadently delicious! The hubs and I are huge Cadbury egg fans…I can’t even wait to give this milkshake a try! Beautiful pictures too!

  4. Just commented on these on G+ but just had to stop by too and say just how much I love this.

    As a Brit, I was born, bred and raised on Cadbury’s Creme eggs. I remember buying bulk boxes and just sitting there eating their sweet gooey-ness! LOL :)

    I’m now subscribed to your blog. If you get time, please do stop by Sweet 2 Eat Baking. I also host a weekly link party too so if you party, do stop by and link up.

    Have a sweet week.

    • I grew up on Cadbury eggs as well here in the US ;) But I was so excited whenever I visited the UK and learned that Cadbury eggs were huge there as well. I even went to the Cadbury factory in Birmingham! Thanks Lisa!

  5. This is so naughty, I love it! Cadbury creme is one of my all-time favorite seasonal treats! Gonna have to remember this one! :-)

  6. How many calories is this??

    • A lot, so I suggest making this and ignoring it :D But in all seriousness, I am not a nutritionist, so I cannot answer that. However, you can find numerous calorie counter sites if you search. If you use moderation, you can have this milkshake as a special treat (or you can even split it with a friend).

    • depends what brand of butter, milk, icecream, whipped cream your using ect:)

  7. I will so have to try this! It looks fantastic!

    Funny you should say Easter has the best candy. In the UK we have Cadbury Screme Eggs over Halloween http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-tHgBi4m5guo/T_X6fhg0DaI/AAAAAAAAci0/eEf2xzG75W4/s1600/cadbury-screme-egg-im-131257.jpg so this recipe could easily be a Halloween treat too ^.^

    I much prefer Mandy Smith’s version of this, why anyone in this day and age would actively consume corn syrup is beyond me.

    • You do realize that the Cadbury eggs themselves have corn syrup as an ingredient, right? So whether you make your own fondant cream or break open a bunch of eggs, you are still consuming corn syrup. I simply chose the version that you can make all year round (minus garnish unless you stock up!)

  9. Im going 2 try and make a vegan version of this by using sunflower spread instead of butter, brown suger instead of sugar, almond or rice milk instead of cows milk, coconut milk instead of whipped cream and caramal&soya chocolate or dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate but dont know what to replace chocolate icecream with HAS ANYONE GOT ANY SUGGESTIONS???

    • I do not have experience in veganizing this. Good luck!

      Hi, you can buy Soy Icecream, it’s actually really yummy stuff (and I’m not the biggest fan of soy milk tho I can still drink it), you can get it in all sorts of flavours including chocolate!! Hopefully that would do just the trick ;3

  10. Well that’s a lot of sugar, nice way to diabetes.

  11. Came here from the Cadbury’s Facebook ( did you know your recipe is on there?) and this looks delicious! Just need to get the ingredients in!

    Can’t wait to make it!

  12. Chloe Doherty says:

    I just got the ingredients in to make this on easter Sunday my partner and child will love it great recipe thanks!!

  13. Janine -sugarkissed.net says:

    This sounds sinful! I might have to spend a little extra time in the elliptical and put this on the menu for Easter weekend :)

  14. I’m not a fan of Cadbury creme eggs but I’m intrigued by this and will have to give ita try.

  15. That looks delicious!

  16. This takes my Cadbury Creme Egg addiction to a whole new level! Can’t wait to try this.
