Creme Egg fudge

Easter is without a doubt one of my favourite times of year – what’s not to love about four days off work and mountains of delicious chocolate eggs packing the shelves (and let’s be honest, filling my tummy).

One of my favourite things to do at this time of year is come up with deliciously decadent treats that are perfect for enjoying as part of your annual Easter-chocolate-coma, or giving to loved ones as gifts instead of the standard store-bought bits of pieces. And luckily, this delicious Creme Egg fudge ticks both boxes.

You might remember that I shared a recipe for pretty delish Pineapple Lump Fudge late last year (if not, click here to check it out). Well, this Creme Egg fudge is based on the same recipe and is equally as delicious.

Creme Eggs are without a doubt one of my favourite parts of Easter – they rival marshmallow eggs for the coveted spot as my most loved Easter egg. While marshmallow eggs narrowly win out on that front, nothing beats baking with Creme Eggs come Easter – anything with Creme Eggs in it is a guaranteed crowd pleaser!

Last Easter I created some rather indulgent Creme Egg cupcakes that are decadent enough to make any Creme Egg lover weak at the knees – and judging from the response it got after I posted it, you definitely seemed to love the recipe!

With such a success under my belt, the pressure was on to come up with something equally delicious this time around… but I’m pleased to say I have just the recipe. Crème Egg cheesecake. Yip – this year we’re taking Creme Eggs up a level and incorporating them into an already delicious dessert.
