I am so making this! Too bad I didn't find the recipe before Easter but honestly where I am at now it would have been difficult to find Cadbury Creme Eggs. I will admit that I slept on them until two years ago. I remembered not liking them when I was like 3 but two years ago, I decided to pick them up from the drugstore as an adult and with my first bite I was in HEAVEN! They are simply divine.
It’s baffling to me how some people don’t like Cadbury Creme Eggs. I mean, how? They’re so good! And the fact that you have to wait a whole year to eat one makes them that much more delicious. Insane, I tell you!
Luckily for haters and lovers alike, I’ve created the most delicious of Easter treats that even the most avid CCE critics will enjoy. (You can trust me on this, I’ve done taste tests on real haters, and they agree.) And with only four ingredients, you can whip up a batch of these treats in less than 30 minutes—no baking required! Which is a good thing if you’re entertaining for Easter this weekend, though they may disappear so fast that you’ll need to whip up a second batch to keep hungry guests at bay!
- 16 Cadbury Cream Eggs
- 2 sticks of butter
- 4 cups Rice Krispies
- 12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
First, melt the butter over medium-low heat. While the butter is melting, remove the foil from the Cadbury Cream Eggs. This is a bit of a pain, but I promise you it’s the most work you’ll have to do!
Take the eggs and add them to the melted butter so they start to melt. Don’t worry if it looks like a big sloppy mess—just keep stirring, and everything will start to come together.
Once your eggs have melted and the mixture is smooth and creamy, add in the Rice Krispies. Use some muscle and stir the mixture so that the Rice Krispies are completely coated by the chocolate.
Line an 8×12” pan with parchment paper and add the Rice Krispies mixture. Use an extra piece of parchment paper to press down on the mixture so it’s smooth and evenly spread.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave (use 30-second increments, stirring in between). Spread the melted chocolate over the top of the Rice Krispies mixture, then let cool so the chocolate hardens slightly. You can pop your pan into the fridge to hurry this process up if you’re anxious to get eating!
Once cool, cut into generous squares. You should get 25–30 squares out of this recipe, depending on how large you cut them!
Happy Easter, everyone!
