This is a pretty web-famous, but still delicious, mock-up of the Cadbury treat. You can make deliciously flavoured fillings by changing the extracts (my current favourite is coconut "white" and lemon "yolk").

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, beat together corn syrup, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and sea salt.
  2. Remove 1/3 of the mixture to another bowl and stir in the food colourings.
  3. Chill 1 hour.
  4. Roll 16 small balls of the "yellow" mixture and place on a plate, freeze until solid.
  5. Make 16 pieces of the "white" mixture and flatten each into a rough disk.
  6. Place one frozen "yolk" in the centre of each "white" and wrap the white mixture around it, smoothing into a rough egg shape.
  7. Place completed eggs on a plate and chill.
  8. Melt the bittersweet chocolate in a double boiler or microwave and dip the eggs to coat.
  9. Allow to harden completely at room temperature.
