Egg-cellent….

I’m a lazy blogger. I like to see if the recipe is already out there that I can make and modify. Coming up with a recipe from scratch takes time darn it all. Which is why I have to laugh when the people on all these Facebook Pages that steal photos and post the recipes and say they are just recipes. Truthfully I don’t get that upset over the recipe as I do the photo. When I asked the one girl why she doesn’t just make the recipe herself, photograph it, then post her own photo…she told me IT WAS TOO HARD. Yeah, no kidding. Especially when shooting ice cream…it likes to melt!

Anyway I decided I wanted to make Cadbury Crème Egg Ice Cream this year. So I Googled it. Got excited when I read that it’s actually an ice cream flavor already….in England. Boo. Now I know how my over the seas peeps feel most of the time. Then I researched even more and found out it was more of the fondant flavor than chocolate and realized that wasn’t what I wanted at all. So even if I could get it, the flavor combo was not what I wanted. So to the drawing board I went.

I have made quite few things with Cadbury Eggs. I’ll do an Easter round up so you can see but let’s focus on the ice cream. I decided that I wanted to melt down the Cadbury Eggs and have that be the base so to speak. Since I wanted more chocolate than fondant I went with the small Cadbury Crème Eggs (like the one in my pictures). I used half eggs and then half Cadbury milk chocolate (I got tired of unwrapping…told you I was lazy). I happen to have some Cadbury milk chocolate from Canada but if you have a Cost Plus World Market near you they normally carry it there. If you have to you can just use regular milk chocolate but it’s not the same.

I’m going to guess that it is the fondant in this that makes the ice cream so smooth but holy cow this stuff is good and I’m not even that big of a Cadbury Crème Egg fan. You do need an ice cream maker for this. Like I have said before they are pretty inexpensive and totally worth it…Summer is on its way. You could be crazy like me and get the kind with its own compressor and so you can decided at noon on a Wednesday that you want ice cream and have it an hour and a half later. But normal people own one like this Cuisinart ICE-21 Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker, White .
I got a request to make Cadbury Crème Egg fudge that I am considering making…but for now this ice cream will have to do…and by do I mean make your tummy and taste buds love

  3. This looks insane. In the best way possible.

  4. I can hear my brothers singing my praises. Off to the store to get Cadbury Creme eggs!…and try not to eat them all before I get home. :)

  5. Just got back from the dentist, where the staff was talking about Cadbury Creme Eggs. So, I told them about your ice cream. The look on their faces was priceless. May have to bring them a copy of the recipe when I return in two weeks.

  6. I’m providing a lot of work for them :-)

  7. Seriously your killing me…I love Cadbury eggs and this sounds oh so good!! Sheesh!!

  8. I have the same type of ice cream maker and love it! It runs at least once a week all summer long… but, I may have to pull it out now so that I can make this before the Cadbury Eggs disappear!

  9. Oh my! What a genius idea, I love anything and everything ice cream, this is awesome :)

  10. Oh. My. Goodness. I think I love you!
    I made this today (it’s in the freezer right now) and I am so excited about it! I snuck a bite before I put it in the freezer and it tastes so good! I can’t wait for the hubby to get home so we can dive in!

    Hey there
    Just wanted to let you know that since I don’t have an ice cream maker I decided to give it a go without it, it turned out pretty great. All I had to do was bring our and stir every hour adding the chunks of creme eggs in the final hour. Boys cannot wait to try, Thanks for sharing this recipe! :)

  17. Cadbury Crème Eggs are my favorite Easter treat and ice cream is my favorite all time treat. You just rocked my world! :)
