10 Cadbury Creme Egg Recipes That Prove Why This Is The Greatest Easter Candy Of All Time

For foodies, Easter is all about the holy trinity of treats: jelly beans, Peeps, and, above all else, Cadbury Creme Eggs. Despite a recent candy controversy, this beautiful blend of chocolate and creme continues to be the sweet star of Easter baskets around the world. But sometimes the Easter bunny lays one too many of these treats in our baskets, forcing us to turn this classic candy into a delicious Cadbury Creme Egg dessert. Hey, we aren't mad!

Don't get me wrong. There's nothing better than removing the bright red foil, biting into the egg, and letting the creme drip down your lip. It's practically a scene from 50 Shades of Grey: The Candy Chronicles. But there's also nothing wrong with combining two tasty treats — Cadbury eggs and baked goods — into an equally amazing confection. Even Cadbury purists can't argue with that sort of logic.

So if you find yourself with an abundance of Cadbury Creme Eggs this Easter, set a few dozen aside, and transform them into something even sweeter. From freshly baked cakes to deep-fried concessions to an alcohol-infused milkshake (yes, that's a thing), here are 10 tasty desserts that highlight Easter's most beloved candy, the Cadbury Creme Egg.
