It’s Easter time again and who among you can’t remember the famous Cadbury Creme eggs that are usually served to you on Easter morning. The British company known as Cadbury Schweppes originally produced the Cadbury Chocolate Egg. As we all remember the large milk chocolate outer shell and yellow and white filling that represents the yolk of a real egg.
Cadbury Eggs are usually sold individually and with yellow, red, blue and green wrappers and proudly display the Cadbury Crème Egg Chick. These eggs have proven over the years to be a popular food, especially at easter egg chicks
In the 1920’s, the Cadbury Brothers made the same type of egg in England. Although the Cadbury brothers made the first eggs in their factories in Birmingham and Bournville in the early 1920s, the eggs were quickly reaching a production of 1.5 million per day.
The interesting thing about the design is that the white fondant filling is in a solid state when the chocolate layer is made. Then, they are injected with an enzyme that causes the filling to dissolve.
The English version was first made with a weight of 40 grams and until today, it is still the same size. Unfortunately, the eggs made in the Hershey factory in America have decreased over the years, and the eggs now weigh only 32 grams.
Over time, the Cadbury company introduced many different products related to the original chocolate creme egg. A little egg cream has a lot of body

I’ve included a homemade Cadbury recipe for making popular baby clothes with your kids. This recipe is kind of like a real egg.
1/2 cup milk syrup
1/4 cup softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
3 cups powdered sugar
4 drops of purple color
2 drops of red food coloring
1-12 oz. a packet of chocolate milk
2 tablespoons shortening
Start by mixing the corn syrup, vanilla, butter and salt in a large bowl. Beat the ingredients well with an electric mixer. Then, add sugar one cup at a time while mixing the mixture by hand with each addition.
Take out a third of the mixture and put it in a small bowl. Add red and yellow coloring while stirring. Cover the two mixtures and refrigerate for at least two hours. Check the mixture and when they are stable, take the orange filling and roll it into a small ball. Wrap this ball in one side twice the size of the white filling. Cut it into an egg shape and place the finished egg on a greased cookie sheet. Repeat this process with all remaining items. When done, put it in the refrigerator for three to four hours.
Combine the chocolate chips and shortening in a large glass bowl and microwave on high for one minute. After removing from the microwave, stir well and put it back in the microwave for another minute.
Dip each spot into the melted chocolate using a fork. Place the candy on a sheet of wax paper to let it dry. When the candy has cooled for another hour or two, turn it on again and put it in the refrigerator for the second time.
