Using up cadbury creme eggs...

Don't shoot me, but we still have about six cadbury creme eggs left over from Easter sitting in the fridge. Normally would have scoffed the lot down, but they're just too sweet.

Does anyone have any ideas about what I can do with them? A brownies recipe or something? Otherwise I thought I'd melt them down with some more plain choc to make chocolate crispies for my DD's birthday party? Not sure it'd work?

All ideas welcome (and I'll send you cyber tasters via t'internet) grin

you could make giant creme egg cupcakes, but if the creme eggs are too much then you'd not manage a cupcake.

If you have a brownie recipe then I am sure a couple smashed up and stirred through would not come ot any harm.

Post them to me grin

Ooh I'm intrigued! How would you make the giant creme cupcakes?

I'm thinking the fondant would make the brownies even gooier and yummier... smile

At Easter I make a load of chocolate came mix put into big muffin cases and put a creme egg know the middle.

Bake as normal and the creme egg turns to goo inside.

Yum!

Freeze them then smash them up with a hammer while frozen and add them to some good ice cream. Refreeze.

Eat them!

Or make some cheesecake thing. Catsmamma's cupcakes look great btw.

Is that a Freudian slip Mike? 'chocolate came mix' ? grin shock grin

I know, I know. Leftover chocolate is genuinely not normally in my vocabulary, but I think my old age is catching up on me! blush sad

I would eat the lot.
There are Halloween scream eggs in the shops now.
But yes if you really must, bake it into the middle of something.

Left over creme eggs confused what is this?? I've never heard of it!!

<<drags arse off the sofa to go get a creme egg>>

I've just had a look and four of them are the caramel ones.

Think I'll do a few in cupcakes - do you reckon I just mash a bit of each one into the middle of the dough? Sort of dollop a bit of normal mixture into the cases then a bit of creme egg then cover with the rest of the mixture?

Will either do brownies or crispies with the left overs.

Will report back.

And I apologise again for the shock this has caused many of you. The same would normally be my response. I have no valid excuse really... blush

Thanks for the coffee link Hyva ~ I don't drink coffee but had a look at some other links and found this one which I think looks lush... creme brulegg grin

grin blush oops.

I usually freeze my creme/caramel eggs before baking.

flubba Fri 12-Oct-12 18:54:54

Right, they're in the freezer now - ready to be smashed up tomorrow grin grin

I make my normal brownie recipe then spread bits of frozen smashed creme egg onto the top before baking. YUMMY!

flubba Fri 12-Oct-12 19:21:14

Sounds lush. Will give that a go. Might mix a few bits in them as well.
