Homemade Creme Eggs

These homemade Creme Eggs are perfect for Easter or any time you're craving a sweet treat. 


For the filling:

  • 1/4 cup (55g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) light corn syrup or golden syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups (360g) powdered sugar, sifted
  • Yellow food colouring (optional)

For the chocolate coating:

  • 10 ounces (280g) milk chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. Prepare the filling: In a mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy. Add the light corn syrup (or golden syrup), vanilla extract, and salt. Mix until well combined.

  2. Gradually add the powdered sugar, mixing well after each addition, until a smooth and thick dough forms. If desired, add a few drops of yellow food colouring to achieve the classic Creme Egg colour. Mix until the colour is evenly distributed.

  3. Shape the filling into small egg-shaped pieces, about 1 inch in length. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Transfer the baking sheet to the refrigerator and chill the filling for at least 30 minutes to firm up.

  4. Prepare the chocolate coating: In a heatproof bowl, combine the chopped milk chocolate and vegetable oil. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate using a double boiler.

  5. Remove the chilled filling from the refrigerator. Using a fork or a toothpick, dip each egg-shaped filling into the melted chocolate, ensuring it's completely coated. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off before placing the coated eggs back onto the parchment-lined baking sheet.

  6. Once all the eggs are coated, return the baking sheet to the refrigerator and chill the eggs for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the chocolate coating is set.

  7. Once the chocolate coating is firm, your homemade Creme Eggs are ready to enjoy! Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.

  8. Serve and enjoy the delicious taste of homemade Creme Eggs!
