Make sure you don’t mix your Cadbury Eggs too much. You want the ooey gooey centers just barely mixed in like this.

The hardest part of the recipe is waiting the 30 minutes to cut them into squares!

The gooey Cadbury centers give the bars an almost marshmallow-y consistency. You’ll love these.

    Oh, wow. These would be a huge hit in our house! I actually just picked up some of those Cadbury Eggs at Target yesterday. They’re impossible to walk past!

    Ella says:

    Looks yummy but I would never use canola oil.

  3. 3

    Best use ever of those Cadbury eggs! I love the mini choc chips too!

  4. 4

    OOOH these look fantastic!

  5. 5

    I’ve honestly never seen a recipe using cadburuy creme eggs before. These look so good and maybe a bit dangerous! I’m afraid I wouldn’t be able to stop myself from eating them all up!

    Jessica says:

    I might pop the eggs in the fridge for a while to solidify the centers. I saw that trick with a “Deviled Cadbury Egg” recipe before (basically half the egg topped with yellow frosting and red sprinkles to look like a deviled egg :-)). Adding to my “do eventually” list!

    Claire says:

    Sorry for sounding thick but what is yellow cake mix?

    Amanda says:

    I am not even kidding, I would pay big, big money for these. You seriously just created what I imagine would be my favorite dessert OF ALL TIME.

    Stacey I says:

    They look divine!! Could I use salted butter instead of unsalted? Would it make much of a difference?

      Megly says:

      The end product will taste a bit saltier. I like salty/sweet desserts, so it wouldn’t bother me, but it’s something to consider.

    Brianna says:

    Yum! I haven’t had one of those Easter Chocolate eggs since I was a kid! There’s something about food that brings back childhood memories…all the more delish :).

    What a FUN idea! I’ll probably be making these AFTER Easter with all the Cadbury eggs the Easter bunny brings. 🙂

  22. 22

    I’ve never been too fond of those Cadbury Creme Eggs, but all mushed up in that delicious batter would be an entirely different story! Those look scrumptious!

    Brooke says:

    Do you think you could do the ones with carmel in them? Or does it just need to be the orginal ones for this recipe?

    Yes, yes, and yes!! These look so amazing.

    […] I ran into a few small snags with this recipe – I would have omitted the chocolate chips in favour of more creme egg, I didn’t feel that the creme egg distribution was even.  But otherwise, a great, easy, and really neat recipe to try.  Doesn’t take very long, and tastes great.  You can find the original Picky Palate recipe here.
