As Easter creeps up, there’s one sweet treat on the minds of professional bakers everywhere. We are, of course, talking about Crème Eggs. With their thick chocolate outer-layer and gooey fondant centre, it’s no wonder these tasty sweet eggs have got chocolate fans pining for them all year round. For professional bakers, Crème Eggs bring with them the opportunity to create desserts that are even more indulgent, mouth-watering and tempting to customers.
As many bakers turn to the staple Crème Egg brownies to bake this Easter, it got us thinking about alternative ways to include this rich chocolatey egg in our baking. There’s a variety of Crème Egg desserts to experiment with that not only taste delicious, but look amazing!
In this blog, we’re showcasing four delectable Crème Egg creations.

Traditional Scotch eggs have received an indulgent and oh-so-naughty makeover in this recipe by Amuse your Bouche! Soft, sphere-shaped and exceptionally filling, Scotch Crème Eggs will give your customers their much-needed chocolate fix this Easter. The secret to creating these delicious treats is combining the lusciousness of brownies with Crème Eggs, to form the traditional layers of a Scotch egg. A Crème Egg centre is surrounded by cooked brownie, and finished off with a layer of chocolate sprinkles.
