Is it even possible to create a “cleaner” version of the insanely sweet Cadbury Creme Eggs that are everywhere right now with Easter just around the corner? With 20-26 grams of sugar in each one (which is about six teaspoons!!) depending on the nutrition information I could find online, I was so excited to find this recipe created with her kids in mind. No one, especially not children, needs to eat that much sugar in a couple of mouthfuls. Fair warning, this recipe isn’t sugar-free, but it doesn’t contain sugar, corn syrup, and HFCS.
If you’re feeling super creative you could experiment with adding turmeric to a portion of the filling to create a yolk, but as Michele shows, it is not necessary to do this. These homemade copycat Cadbury Creme Eggs look amazing. And they are made with real food ingredients.
“These homemade copycat Cadbury Creme Eggs are a rich and decadent paleo chocolate treat that everyone will love! Easy to make – the filling comes together in just a few minutes and contains no nuts or refined sugar, and has a dairy-free option. ” – Michele Rosen, Paleo Running Momma
