Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes Recipe for Easter

This Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes recipe is a fun Easter dessert to make for your guests.

Cadbury Creme Eggs are a nice treat to have once or twice a year even though they are sold all year round now. To me, these cupcakes with Cadbury creme eggs inside are a delicious Easter treat, so I don’t eat them all year round.

The Easter Bunny

Have you ever wondered why the Easter Bunny brings us chocolate eggs and not an Easter Chicken? We know rabbits don’t lay eggs, so why a bunny and not a chick? It’s hard to really say as there are a few stories. Easter is a religious holiday but some traditions are more pagan traditions. Spring represents new life and rebirth, which was represented by eggs. Jesus rose from the dead around this time so the eggs came to represent the event.

Since this recipe is for creme egg filled cupcakes, you want to make sure the eggs are chilled before adding them to the batter. You will want to make sure the Cadbury cream egg is covered with batter to help preserve the egg and not have it completely melt. When you add the egg, lay it on its side so there is less to cover. Make sure the cupcake batter is fairly thick to keep the cream egg from moving about.
