    Cadbury's Creme egg


    Recipe By :Topsecretrecipes
    Serving Size : 24 Preparation Time :0:00
    Categories : Candy


    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    1/4 cup butter -- softened
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3 cups powdered sugar
    4 drops yellow food coloring
    2 drops red food coloring
    12 ounces milk chocolate chips
    2 tablespoons vegetable shortening


    Combine corn syrup, butter, vanilla and salt in a large bowl. Beat
    well with an electric mixer until smooth.
    Add powdered sugar, one cup at a time, mixing by hand after each
    addition. Mix well until creamy.
    Remove about 1/3 of the mixture and place it into a small bowl. Add
    the yellow and red food colorings and stir well.
    Cover both mixtures and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until
    firm.
    When mixtures are firm, roll a small, marble-sized ball from the
    orange filling, and wrap around it a portion of the white filling
    that
    is roughly twice the size. Form this filling into the shape of an egg
    and place it on a cookie sheet that has been brushed with a light
    coating of shortening. Repeat for the remaining filling ingredients,
    then refrigerate these centers for 3-4 hours or until firm.
    Combine the milk chocolate chips with the shortening in a glass or
    ceramic bowl. Microwave chocolate on high for 1 min., then stir and
    microwave again for 1 min. more, and stir.
    Use a fork to dip each center into the chocolate, tap the fork on the
    side of the bowl, then place each candy onto waxed paper. Chill.
    After 1-2 hours of chilling, dip each candy once more and chill for
    several hours, or until completely firm.

    Don't need to make them, they're as cheap as chips to buy.

    I think you're *really* spoiling your grandkids, Pam. Hope they
    understand what you're doing for them!

    A recent discussion here mentioned that the quality of Cadbury's Creme Eggs
    has plummeted. Since you don't care about quality, then you should just
    stick to your "cheap as chips" commercial crap, but others are willing to
    take the time to make their own creme eggs so that they'll have *good* creme
    eggs at Easter.

    I bought one after that discussion, just to see. It was a little
    smaller (no, I'm not just bigger) but the center was smooth fondant and
    it had a "yolk". It was too sweet of course, but if it had had dark
    chocolate instead of milk it might actually have tasted good.

    My verdict is they are just like they've always been, only smaller.
    Whoever got the bad one maybe just got a leftover from last year (or the
    year before that)

    Making your own Creme Eggs is Ok for those that have the time...... but then
    there are those of us that have lives :-)


    And who don't 'celebrate' Easter by buying/eating/making copious amounts of
    chocolate.
