Cadbury Creme Egg Milkshake

Cadbury Creme Egg Milkshake--click for recipe from Spiced!

I love this time of the year.  The weather is getting warmer.  The birds are beginning to sing in the morning.  The garden is showing signs of life again.  Oh yeah, and there’s Easter candy.  I love Easter candy.  Peeps.  Cadbury Creme Eggs.  Those addicting Sweet Tart gummies.  Even the peanut M&Ms taste better when they are pastel colored!

This year, in honor of perhaps the most iconic Easter candy out there, I decided to combine Cadbury Creme Eggs with another one of my favorite desserts…ice cream.  How can you go wrong with these two together!?  And Cadbury Creme Eggs happen to be my wife’s all-time favorite candy.  So you can imagine the look on her face when she came home and found 4 boxes of eggs on the counter.  What?  I had to have extras to experiment with!

Cadbury Creme Egg Milkshake

Ingredients

    For the Fondant Creme
  • 1 Tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's (powdered) sugar
  • For the Milkshake
  • 1 scoop (~1/2 cup) chocolate ice cream
  • 2 scoops (~1 cup) vanilla ice cream
  • fondant creme (from above)
  • splash of milk
  • 1 Cadbury Creme Egg

Instructions

    For the Fondant Creme
  1. In a small mixing bowl, beat all ingredients together with whisk until well blended.
  2. For the Milkshake
  3. In a blender, add ice cream, fondant creme, and milk. Blend until smooth. Pour into frosted glass and garnish with 1/2 of a Cadbury Creme Egg.

Notes

I only used a splash of milk as I like my milkshakes to be rather thick. Feel free to adjust with more milk depending on your personal preference!

On the first attempt, I used all chocolate ice cream…but the chocolate way overpowered the fondant creme.  It basically tasted like a chocolate milkshake.  Not that chocolate milkshakes are bad…just not what I was going for this time.  So after a couple more attempts, I settled on 1 scoop of chocolate ice cream and 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream.  The chocolate flavor is definitely still noticeable, but I feel like the fondant creme flavor comes through, too.  (And by fondant creme flavor, I mean pure sweetness…but isnt that pretty much what the filling of a Cadbury Creme Egg is?)  This milkshake is delicious…but rich.  I am fairly certain I couldn’t finish an entire glass by myself.  Good thing I had my wife around to help!  (And even my dog tried to help out at the end…too bad for him that chocolate and dogs don’t mix!)

  1. So you use all of the fondant creme in one milkshake yes?

    • Hey Megan! I did use all of the fondant creme in one milkshake, but then we split the milkshake between two of us. And if you don’t want your milkshake to be quite as sweet, just make a 1/2 batch of the fondant creme. Enjoy!

  2. PS this looks soooo delicious!! I can’t wait to make it!!
