Creme Egg Fudge is popular at Easter, but also makes a great spring bake sale item! It was inspired by my No Bake Easter Creme Egg Icebox Cake.
The first time I had one I was only a small child...The creamy white and yellow center just looked a little too real. It took me a while to wrap my head around and I'll be honest, at first, it grossed me out a bit.
However, after I ate my first one, I was in love! Easter cream eggs alone are amazing, but Easter cream eggs and fudge, well, they were just meant to be together...
For this Easter Creme Egg Fudge, you'll need these simple ingredients:
- 1 300ml can of condensed milk
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- 225 g bag of white chocolate chips (about 1 ¼ cups)
- ¼ cup butter (unsalted)
- 12 Cadbury mini Easter Creme eggs smashed/chopped (affiliate link)
- ½ cup Cadbury mini eggs (colored) light crushed/broken (affiliate link)
💭 History of the Cadbury Creme Egg
The Cadbury Creme Egg has been around for a very long time! Cadbury created the first chocolate egg filled with sugary treats in 1875 and in 1923 they created the very first chocolate eggs filled with cream. But these chocolate eggs, as we know them today, weren’t actually invented until 1963 under the name “Fry’s Creme Eggs.” The name changed to “Cadbury Creme Eggs” in 1971. These cream-filled eggs are produced by many companies around the world and it's no surprise that Hershey's has market rights in the United States.

🐇When and where to find Easter Creme Eggs
Although you can pretty much buy them any time of the year nowadays, when I was a kid, when the Easter cream eggs came out, it meant not only Easter (which meant chocolate!) but more importantly, it meant that spring was on the horizon. You’d understand that spring was just as exciting as chocolate if not more if you grew up in Winnipeg and had just survived yet another Winnipeg winter!
You can usually get these eggs at the grocery store ( I bought mine in January). But if you can't find them at the grocery store, you can find them online through Amazon here: Cadbury Mini Easter Creme Eggs and Cadbury Mini eggs (colored)! (affiliate links).
Kids love Easter creme eggs, mini eggs, or any chocolate eggs any time of the year, so I made these for a spring bake sale and they went crazy for it! It was the first thing to go and I wish that I had made quadruple the amount I made.
This recipe makes 25 small pieces (the size in the photos) but you can click on the highlighted blue servings number in the recipe card and adjust the recipe to however many servings you want.
So, if you are looking for an easy bake sale idea, give these a try!

Store this Easter fudge recipe in the fridge in an airtight container for 4-5 days. If you are just storing it overnight, you could simply cover it in plastic wrap.
This Cadbury eggs fudge also freezes well so you can make it well in advance! Just make sure you make 3-4 times more than you think you need because it will be a hot seller (especially if you put Easter cream eggs in front of it)!

📋 Microwave Creme Egg Fudge Recipe
- Spray an 8 inch square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Or alternatively, you can line it with parchment paper.
- Place milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl.
- Heat in the microwave on HALF POWER /50% (this is 5 on my microwave) for about 8 minutes, stirring every 1-2 minutes and more (every 30 seconds) towards the end/last 2 minutes. You want to heat it just until the chocolate mixture is melted and completely combined. It may take up to 10 minutes, as the white chocolate chips tend to melt slower.
- Meanwhile, crush 12 mini Easter cream eggs.
- Transfer chocolate fudge mixture to prepared dish and gently stir crushed mini Easter cream eggs into mixture.
- Sprinkle crushed mini eggs on top of the fudge and gently press into fudge.
- Refrigerate until set and completely cool (about 90 minutes ) Slice into 25 (5 rows each way)squares and enjoy!
