Leftover Jelly Bean Pop-Tarts

Serious Eats cakespy Post a comment

Preparing a homemade version of the popular store-bought pastries is extremely easy, and placing rows of jelly beans in the middle is a vibrant way to make use of any straggler candy. The jelly beans become soft and slightly gooey while still the tarts are still warm; they form into flattened but soft little sugar lumps when cooled. 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

When you think of Easter candy, a few key items probably pop to mind: chocolate bunnies, marshmallow Peeps, and malted milk balls. And when you think of malted milk balls, you probably think of Whoppers. More

Chocoholic: Chocolate Coconut Nests with Jelly Bean Eggs

Sweets Yvonne Ruperti 5 comments

When you reach a certain age, it begins. Those dreaded moments when you see some of your most beloved treats simply go to hell. Maybe the candy is half the size it used to be, looks different, or just doesn't taste the same. The fact is that at some point the companies decide to cut costs and it sucks. More

Sweets Max Falkowitz 13 comments

It turns out there's more than one way to eat a Cadbury Creme Egg. After some careful analysis at Serious Eats HQ, I've identified what I believe are the three major styles of creme egg consumption. I've included the procedures below. You may want to take notes—this isn't easy stuff, and it will be on your Easter final. More

Cakespy: Cadbury Creme Scrambled Eggs

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

Serious Eats cakespy 1 comment

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

Easter Basket 2012: Why Do So Many Jelly Beans Suck?

Sweets Carey Jones 34 comments

As a kid, Easter baskets meant two things to me: Peeps and jelly beans. As a childhood chocolate-hater (who didn't really get over that aversion until college), those were pretty much the only candies I'd want; no Cadbury eggs or chocolate bunnies for me. But here's the thing about jelly beans: so many of them suck. Really suck. 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

Poll: Which Part of the Chocolate Easter Bunny Do You Eat First?

Erin Zimmer 20 comments

How do I eat thee chocolate bunny? Oh, let me count the ways. Those long ears are just asking to be bit into first. Or maybe you go for the face region (usually defined by the protruding nose). Then there's the cottontail. We were struck by this question after our chocolate bunny taste test, where we ended up eating every anatomical region. So tell us, which part do you chomp on first? Take the poll! » More

Taste Test: Chocolate Easter Bunnies

Sweets Erin Zimmer 22 comments

This was by far one of the most violent taste tests we've had at Serious Eats world headquarters—we butchered off ears, cottontails, and hind legs, trying not to think too hard about former fluffy pets or Thumper. But hey, we needed to find the best of the hippity-hoppity chocolate Easter rabbits (and carving matzo wouldn't have been as fun). More

Attention Peeps Haters: You May Actually Like the New Chocolate-Covered Peeps

Erin Zimmer 27 comments

Brand new this year: individually-wrapped chocolate covered Peeps (in both dark and milk chocolate flavors). It's nothing revolutionary, but maybe this is finally where they woo Peeps haters. Biting into it, you don't really think about Peeps. You just taste a chocolate-covered marshmallow blob. More
