Pick your jaws off the ground and get ready to save tons of money, by making your own homemade cream eggs…with a diet-friendly twist!

I think it is safe to say when it comes to Easter eggs and Easter candy, Creme eggs are a universal favorite.

What’s not to love about them? A gooey creamy filling replicating an egg (white and yellow) all covered in chocolate.

There are some significant downsides to the humble, delicious Cadbury creme egg. Nutritionally, they contain very little benefits. Loaded with sugar, saturated fats and a slew of unquestionable ingredients…they aren’t the best.

Not just that, Creme eggs aren’t suitable for many diets out there!

Oh and another thing… They are darn expensive! As a regular consumer of creme eggs, I’d happily fork out over $1.50 for a single egg, which is no longer seasonal- These eggs are available year round. 

Well, friends. We’ve got an easy winner here.

Why make this Keto Creme Egg Recipe

Ironically, several years ago, my own mum made homemade creme eggs, following this recipe here. All I simply did was test out a few substitutions and have come pretty darn close to replicating the humble creme egg.

Texture-wise, they are VERY similar to the inspiration- A delicate chocolate shell breaking into a gooey creme filling.

Taste-wise, it’s a sweet tooth’s dream- A rich, dark chocolate coating filled with a sweet, creamy center.

How to make Creme eggs from scratch

Ingredients needed

The Instructions

STEP ONE- Melt the chocolate

Add the chopped chocolate to a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop and heat up until it has melted.

STEP TWO- Fill the egg molds

Pour a small amount of the chocolate into the egg molds and use a brush or spoon to ensure all the sides are coated.

STEP 3- Make the filling

In a small bowl, whisk together the condensed milk and powdered sugar until combined. Remove one tablespoon of it and place it in a small bowl. Whisk in the turmeric. Alternatively, you can add yellow food coloring.

STEP 4- Fill the eggs

Evenly distribute the white filling amongst the eggs, then drop a small amount of the yellow cream to the center of them. Freeze for around 15 minutes to firm up, before spreading the remaining chocolate on top.

Storage instructions

Unlike the creme filling, once the chocolate coating is added, the creme eggs become super stable. This means you can keep them at room temperature, for up to a week.

The eggs are best kept refrigerated and will keep for up to a month.

Homemade creme eggs are also freezer friendly and will keep for up to 6 months. 

Tips and Tricks

Don’t be concerned if your filling starts to flatten once you form them into eggs- Just move quickly and freeze them. Once they have firmed up and are to be taken out the refrigerator, you can form them back into egg shapes.

Beating the filling mixture will take a little time, but keep mixing and you’ll be left with a smooth and silky texture.

  1. Hi Arman! I really enjoy most every recipe you make, at least the reading of them, I cannot eat that much, so don’t make every one, but I do try several and I am so very grateful for your 2 minute English muffin recipe, it has been such a blessing! (I make them when I volunteer at a retreat and summer camp spot, for those who are gluten free, and I point them to this site as the place to go.)

    This recipe though, it doesn’t quite have the ‘Arman’ touch to it…All that sugar on a Keto or Paleo diet? And yes, I know that powdered sugar isn’t as much sugar as regular might be, but something just isn’t computing in my brain here. Perhaps coconut butter to use as the ‘base’ instead? I don’t know, but this one is not a ‘keeper’ unless I changed the sugar amount for me, and I don’t specifically follow either of those diets, but do vegetarian (I would say vegan, but I do use honey on occasion.) and low sugar.

    Anyway, just wanted to give you a shout-out. All in all, I am most pleased with your recipes. Blessings!

  2. Oh yum!…delish!…i mixed the chocolate into the filling and it made a wonderful fudgy substance!…I wanted instant gratification in eating it, and the forming and coating would have taken too long…really satisfied a serious sweet tooth I had!…
