Cakespy: Cadbury Creme Scotch Eggs

Sweets cakespy 16 comments

The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg is coated with a thick cocoa-kissed batter, then coated in cookie crumbs and deep-fried. When eaten warm, the taste calls to mind that of a deep-fried candy bars that one can find at state fairs, but in my opinion, a slightly more complex flavor. It's the perfect dessert counterpart to the classic Scotch Egg: similar visually, and every bit as decadent. Happy Easter indeed. More

The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg is coated with a thick cocoa-kissed batter, then coated in cookie crumbs and deep-fried. When eaten warm, the taste calls to mind that of a deep-fried candy bars that one can find at state fairs, but in my opinion, a slightly more complex flavor owing to the cocoa in the batter and the vanilla cookies. Speaking of the crumbs, they also give the treat a pleasing crunch, which acts as a pleasant texture contrast to the cakey batter and soft, gooey chocolate and sugar-filled interior. More

Easter Basket 2012: Have You Ever Frozen Cadbury Creme Eggs?

Sweets Max Falkowitz 6 comments

If you find Cadbury Egg fillings too viscous and sticky, try freezing them. It doesn't impact the flavor but makes for a totally different textural experience. The filling doesn't freeze rock solid, but it firms up like fudge, or a soft caramel candy. More

It's a simple enough question: What would happen if you scrambled Cadbury Creme Eggs as if they were regular eggs? More

Cadbury Creme Scrambled Eggs

The taste of the eggs is not exceptional on its own (it tastes like a Creme Egg melted in butter and cream), but it's rather good when put on top of "potatoes" made from diced day-old doughnuts fried in butter and "toast with jam" made of poundcake. More

Easter Basket 2012: A Few Bad Eggs

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins 8 comments

My mother always told me that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I still painted a boy's hair green when he copied my picture in art class, and it was with similar dismay that I saw that the king of drugstore chocolate, Russell Stover, had knocked off my beloved Cadbury Creme Eggs. More

McDonald's in the UK: Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry and Mozzarella Dippers

Fast Food John M. Edwards 18 comments

What can the Brits munch on that Americans can't at the Golden Arches? For the most part, the menu is quite similar. There's the Quarter Pounder, the McNuggets, and the fries are even called fries, not "chips." But there are a few things that you won't find in an American McDonald's—among them, a Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry and Mozzarella Sticks. (Actually, they're called "Mozzarella Dippers.") More

Cakespy: Leftover Easter Candy Cookies

Serious Eats cakespy 7 comments

I started out with a basic drop cookie recipe and added in a cup of assorted leftovers, including Easter corn, jelly beans, cut-up Peeps, and malted egg candies. I won't lie: I was aware that these cookies had the potential to be either awful or awesome. More

Five Easter Treats, Rated in NOMs by a Candy-Loving Confectioner

Liz Gutman 30 comments

Speaking as a confectioner and a chocolate lover, familiarity with great ingredients really gives an appreciation of what to look for in truly fine chocolates: character and depth of flavor; smooth texture with a thin coating; nuanced, and not too sweet. But this tasting is not about that kind of chocolate. It's about something that gives us all (yes, even you) a certain kind of comfort: drugstore Easter candy. We rated five of the classics on a very scientific scale, from one to five NOMs. More

Can Eggs Benedict be recreated in a totally sweet form? You bet your bottom silver dollar pancake: say hello to Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict. It's made of stacks of doughnut, brownie, melty Creme Eggs (complete with oozing yolk!), and a topping of rich frosting, all accompanied by a mound of fried pound cake to give the effect of side potatoes.

The Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry at British McDonald's

All That Klausner From the blog of comedy writer Julie Klausner: Easter is tantalizingly around the corner, quoth the candy aisles of Duane Reade (which has Whoppers Robin's Eggs) and Walgreen's (which has Milk Chocolate Praying Hands). But according to my friend Jocelyn, who has BEEN TO ENGLAND, our candy may as well be pushpins and gravel. Because across the pond, come Easter, the Brits are doing what they do all year round: making us Americans look like potato salad-shucking morons. Behold, the CADBURY CREME EGG McFLURRY. Of course, there's nothing stopping you from making your own Cadbury Creme Egg shake at home. [via Buzzfeed]... More

Muffins for Easter: Cadbury Creme Egg Muffins

Robyn Lee 3 comments

Why had I not heard about the glorious marriage of muffin and goo-filled chocolate treat before reading Nicole Weston's recipe for Cadbury Creme Egg Muffins? Weston say that while you probably wouldn't want to serve these at any regular brunch (but...but maybe I do!), they're good for Easter and may prevent you from eating a bag of Cadbury Mini Creme Eggs all at once, "since you’ll have to eat through each muffin to get to them first." I like that idea; stagger your intake of eggs by wrapping each one in a muffin.... More

Just In Time For Easter: Make Your Own Cadbury Creme Egg Ice Cream

Lia Bulaong Post a comment

"For me and many others, the arrival of spring was heralded not by the vernal equinox nor by the springing forward of clocks but by the appearance of Cadbury Creme Eggs in grocery and drug stores. (With global warming messing everything up these days, such material signs might soon be the only evidence of seasonal change remaining.)" Not only did Creme Egg enthusiast Doug Gordon stock up on his favorite Easter candy this year, but he also made himself some Cadbury Creme Egg ice cream, and for that act commited in the pursuit of Serious Eating we salute him. (This Easter, Brits are getting an official Cadbury Creme Egg ice cream in limited edition for the first time; they... More
