I am obsessed with Cadbury’s Creme Eggs but unfortunately (well fortunately for my waist line) They don’t sell them in Spain, to be honest they don’t sell all too much in the way of Easter treats in Spain, nothing like England and the chocaholic in me craves chocolate, most of all my very favourites; Creme Eggs.
I decided to make creme eggs as a special treat Easter treat and share the recipe with you lovelies!
Here’s what you’ll need:
4 tbsp of Golden Syrup
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
300g Icing sugar
1/2 tsp yellow food colouring
Leave the butter out to soften slightly, mix together with the golden syrup and vanilla extract. Add the icing sugar and mix until nice and smooth you may need a drop of hot water.
Divide the mixture into 2 one lot smaller than the other. To the smaller portion add the yellow food colouring this will be your yolks and leave the other white. Place in the freezer for 30 mins.
Once hard take a teaspoon of the yellow mixture and roll into balls. Do this until you have used up all of the mixture. Then do the same but slightly bigger with the white mixture. Place in the freezer for 10 mins.
Gently push the centre of the white ball in with your thumb to make room for the yolk. Place the yolk inside and then using your fingers cover over with the right. Repeat this until all of the yolks are inside the whites.Place back in the freezer for 15 mins.
Gently melt your chocolate, if doing so in the microwave remember to use a microwave safe bowl and to check on it every 20 seconds or so as not to burn it. Chocolate is very easy to burn!
Remove your eggs from the freezer and using a tooth pick pierce one, now dip it into the chocolate and make sure the melted chocolate has covered the surface fully. Replace on the same tray and repeat with all of the eggs. You will notice that the chocolate sets very quickly, this is due to both the tray being frozen and the inside of the egg. Place in the fridge for another 10 mins and your ready to enjoy!Love, Miss Bobbin x
