We’re just a few weeks away from Easter, so I’ve decided it’s time to start busting out recipes perfectly themed for the holiday. I first shared this Carrot Cake and these Carrot Cake Cupcakes, and now I’ll be sharing recipes featuring the most popular Easter candies — starting with the famous Cadbury Creme Egg!
What are Cadbury Creme Eggs?
If you don’t know what a Cadbury Creme Egg is, it’s an egg shaped chocolate candy that’s filled with a gooey fondant icing that’s been coloured white and orange/yellow to mimic the inside of a real egg.
This filling is what causes such a split about whether these are the best Easter candies or not. Some love that sweet gooey middle and others hate it. I, for one, fall into the love category. Every year around this time I buy a big bag of Cadbury Creme Eggs, because it just doesn’t feel like Easter without them.
A year ago, I found a better use for Cadbury Creme Eggs than just eating them on their own. I baked them into a dessert! Cupcakes to be exact.
These Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes were incredibly delicious and a hit with everyone who made them! They featured a chocolate cupcake that was stuffed with a Creme Egg candy. On top of that cupcake was a yellow and white frosting nest that was filled with my own homemade Creme Egg filling!
Those cupcakes were like, the ultimate Easter treat, so I just had to create another dessert that was Creme Egg themed. Enter the Cadbury Creme Egg Milkshake!
Cadbury Creme Egg Milkshake
This milkshake tastes exactly like a Cadbury Creme Egg in liquid form! It’s made with chocolate ice cream, mini Cadbury Creme Eggs and a homemade Creme Egg Filling! Just throw those ingredients into the blender and mix it all together. Super simple to make, but before you make the milkshake itself, you’ll have to whip up the creme egg filling.
Homemade Creme Egg Filling
The creme egg filling a.k.a “fondant frosting”, is totally optional since we’ll also be adding the creme egg chocolates. However, since the biggest part of a creme egg dessert is the iconic filling, I couldn’t resist!
Trust me, this filling is one of the easiest things you will ever make. Start by beating together some butter and corn syrup. The corn syrup is what gives the filling it’s super gooey texture! Then we add the powdered sugar and vanilla.
My recipe uses 1 and 1/2 cups of powdered sugar, but it’s important to only add the sugar 1/4 cup at a time. We’re not using too much butter and corn syrup, so we need to add the sugar a little bit at a time so each addition can mix in smoothly.
Just about every one of my Milkshake Recipes has to have a fancy glass decoration that beautifully represents the milkshake flavour.
I left the small amount of creme egg filling plain white when adding to the milkshake, because I didn’t want to risk messing up the mixtures colour. But the remaining creme egg filling was tinted yellow to add a pop of colour to the glass!
You can tint the filling orangish yellow, which is the actual colour of a creme egg, but I really like how bold the yellow looks in this milkshake!
To create the design, I poured the filling into a small ziplock bag, cut of a corner and swirled it around the inside of the glass to create a cool effect. Then I dripped some around the edge of the rim.
Sitting on top of the milkshake is some homemade whipped cream, along with a drizzle of more creme egg filling and a halved Cadbury Creme Egg on top! Easter in a glass!

Let’s get baking!
Creme Egg Filling:
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
- 1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- Yellow gel food colouring
Creme Egg Milkshake:
- 4 cups chocolate ice cream (8 large scoops), softened
- 1/4 cup creme egg filling (recipe above)
- 4 mini Cadbury creme eggs
Sweetened Whipped Cream:
- 3/4 cup heavy cream, chilled
- 4 Tbsp powdered sugar
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- Extra creme egg filling
- 1 Large Cadbury Creme Egg, cut in half
For the Creme Egg Filling:
- Beat the corn syrup and butter together in a medium mixing bowl using a handheld mixer.
- Mix in the powdered sugar about 1/4 cup at a time, until it's all combined. Mix in vanilla extract.
For the Creme Egg Milkshake:
- Add softened ice cream, 1/4 cup of creme egg filling and 4 mini Cadbury Creme Eggs (or 2 large) to a blender. Blend until smooth. You can add more Creme Eggs or filling, if desired.
For the Rim & Glass:
- Tint remaining creme egg filling with a few drops of yellow food colouring.
- Pour filling into a small ziplock bag and snip off a small corner. Drizzle the yellow filling into the glass, swirling around to create a random pattern.
- Then squeeze some filling around the rim on the glass to create a drip effect.
- Pour milkshake into glasses and garnish with whipped cream (recipe below), extra creme egg filling and a Cadbury Creme Egg. Serve and enjoy!
For the Sweetened Whipped Cream:
- In a medium stainless steal bowl, using a handheld mixer, whip the chilled cream, powdered sugar and vanilla until cream holds peaks, about 3-4 minutes. Pipe on top of milkshakes.
- If you’d like your milkshake to be a thinner consistency, you can throw in 1/4-1/2 cup of milk or heavy cream.
- If your butter is soft enough, you can get away with using a whisk to make the creme egg filling. You can also substitute for margarine if you’d like.
