It took me a while to wrap my head around it and I'll be honest, at first it grossed me out a bit. The creamy white and yellow center just looked a little too real. The first time I had one I was only a small child...
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.... But add in the little colored mini eggs to the mix and not only do you have Easter Creme Egg Microwave Fudge, but you have yourself a total chocolate Easter egg party in your mouth!
I’ve turned this recipe into a microwaveable recipe to make it faster and to avoid having to fuss with a candy thermometer, as many people aren’t fond of that process. My aim is to make life easier for you.
💭 History of the Cadbury Creme Egg
The Cadbury Creme Egg has been around 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 Hersheys has the market rights in the United States. You can read more about this HERE.
🐇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 ( Cadbury Mini Easter Creme Eggs and Cadbury Mini eggs (colored)!
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 how ever many servings you want. So, if you are looking for an easy bake sale idea, give these a try!
But if you're having a bake sale after Easter, no problem; this recipe is perfect for using up Easter chocolate egg leftovers (if you actually have any).
This 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 Mini Cream Egg Fudge Recipe
- 1 300ml can condensed milk
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- 1 225 g -bag white chocolate chips (about 1 ¼ cups)
- ¼ cup butter
- 12 Cadbury mini Easter Cream eggs smashed/chopped
- ½ cup Cadbury mini eggs (colored) light crushed/broken
- Spray an 8 inch square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- 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 mixture to prepared dish and gently stir crushed mini Easter cream eggs into mixture.
- Sprinkle crushed mini eggs on top and gently press into fudge.
- Refrigerate until set and completely cool (about 90 minutes ) Slice into 25 (5 rows each way)squares and enjoy!

I love that this recipe doesn't need a candy thermometer! I can see how they'd disappear at a bake sale. Super cute!
Thanks, Michele! Yes, they were very popular with the middle school crowd 🙂

I totally remember growing up that creme eggs and mini eggs were around at Easter time and that was it. The same was true of so much of the Christmas chocolate you see all the time now. Year round availability kinda takes some of the excitement away. That being said, this fudge is super exciting and I know if I made it for Easter, my nephews would love it!
Yeah, I agree, Leanne! But although it really does take away the 'special' factor, they're still soo good and I was pretty happy to find them in January so I can do this post well in advance of Easter 🙂
Yum! (And thank you for not making me use a candy thermometer!) I love Easter cream eggs so much but this fudge is a much tidier way to enjoy them and such a quick easy recipe. Thanks so much!
haha you're welcome! Although I'm quite comfortable with a candy thermometer, this is so much less hassle!

Creme eggs are my favourite Easter candy, and you’ve made them infinitely times yummier with this fudge!!! Looks so delicious I can’t wait to try it out!
I can see why these are a hit! Who could resist? Also love the fact that is easy - I confess, I am intimidated by candy thermometers.
Thanks, Kim 🙂 Candy thermometers can definitely be intimidating!
oh wow I love these Easter cream eggs. This is a recipe I have to try. Too bad the only time I can find these eggs though is at Easter time. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Darlene! I hope you get lucky and find some eggs earlier this year!
