Cadbury Egg Fudge


Cadbury Egg Fudge: delicious holiday fudge that tastes just like those Cadbury Eggs!

Last year around Easter I saw a recipe to make Cadbury Eggs. Oh how I love Cadbury Eggs. I usually buy myself ONE egg as a treat each holiday. But now? Now I can make my own Cadbury Egg fudge and indulge all I want (not going to help my swimsuit cause)!

Doesn’t it look divine? I only added some vanilla to the recipe, but otherwise kept it the same. It’s a keeper!

Cadbury Egg Fudge


  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cup powdered sugar
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • yellow food coloring
  • 16 oz milk chocolate, melted


  1. In mixer, beat the butter and corn syrup together. Add vanilla, powdered sugar, salt and milk. Beat until smooth. Remove 2/3 of mixture to separate bowl, beat in several drops of yellow food coloring to remaining mixture.
  2. Line a 9inch square baking dish with parchment paper. Melt chocolate according to package directions. Pour half of chocolate in pan to cover the bottom of dish. Spread white layer over chocolate. Drop yellow layer over the white layer, spreading gently with a knife. Pour remaining melted chocolate over, spreading evenly. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens, about 30 minutes.
  3. Using a VERY hot knife, cut into squares, store in covered container in refrigerator. Enjoy!

  1. Oh my sweet heavens! This is unbelievable… Thanks so much for sharing at Mix it up Monday 🙂

  2. I’m so loving this! I was devastated last year when Hershey’s started putting the peanut/nut allergen warning on Cadbury eggs since I’m severely allergic to peanuts. Now I’ll just have to make this lovely treat instead!

  10. I followed the recipe exactly as is. After leaving fudge cool in the fridge for half an hour I go to cut it into sqaures for dessert. The chocolate was to hard it just cracked with any pressure from a knife & the gooey middle oozed out. I ended up with a huge mess. It did taste true to a Cadbury creme egg but, it definintly did not look like the picture.

    1. Hi Desiree, running your knife under warm water (then drying it) right before cutting helps make smooth cuts through chocolate. The center definitely is softer than the outer shell, but it shouldn’t ooze out making a mess, more like…softly squish out, hehe! You can also try cutting the chocolate before it completely hardens if that helps. Making these in a silicone brownie bite pan is another alternative. Hope this helps!

      1. I had the same problem cutting them, the chocolate cracked all over the place and the filling oozed out. What a mess! Do you spray the brownie bite pan?

  11. I wish you have cookbook because my print do know work at all I will paid for for a good cookbook so let me know I am send you my e mail bursellbarbara781@yahoo.com

  12. I am definitely going to try this. When I start getting really desperate for Cadberry eggs in a few months, this will be ideal.
