How to Make Creme Easter Eggs

This is a simple recipe using store bought ingredients to make Creme Easter Eggs. If you follow our steps you will have the kids (and some grown ups) grinning from ear to ear with your own homemade Creme Easter Eggs this year!

Recipe Hack for Creme Easter Eggs

All these ingredients can be bought from your local supermarket store.


  • 400g milk chocolate
  • 50g white sugar
  • 50g boiling water
  • 250g of white fondant icing
  • Yellow food colouring
  • Vanilla essence

This will make approx 6 creme Easter eggs – double to recipe to make 12.

Step by Step Recipe

  1. We hacked the process by using pre-made hollow Easter eggs. Make sure they are at room temperature and carefully cut them through the centre with a sharp knife. Do not try to cut them if they have been in the fridge – they crack!
  2. Line a muffin tray with egg halves.
  3. Mix the 50g of white sugar and 50g of water in a pan and dissolve to make sugar water.
  4. Take 250g of white fondant icing and grate 1/3 of it into a bowl and mix with a little of the sugar water.
  5. Add a couple of drops of yellow food colouring to make the yolk.
  6. Mix until smooth.
  7. Take the remaining 2/3 of the grated fondant and pour in a little sugar water and a couple of drops of vanilla essence. We needed to use a hand held blender to get a smooth consistency.
  8. Mix until smooth.
  9. Fill each of the chocolate halves with the white fondant icing and then a dollop of the yellow icing for the yolk.
  10. Chill for 30 minutes.
  11. Melt a little chocolate in the microwave in 10 second installments (we used one of the other hollow eggs) and spread it carefully along the edges so you can stick the two halves together.
  12. Enjoy!
