How to Make Vegan Cadbury Creme Eggs
These vegan Cadbury creme eggs can be made in about 20 to 30 minutes (plus the freezer time at the end). So, it’s a fun tradition to start with your family, that won’t take a big chunk out of your day. Your kids can help mix things up, like the powdered sugar and syrup. They can also help pipe in the fillings, and then decorate the outside of the finished eggs.
- Cream together the syrup, butter, salt, and vanilla.
- Sift in the confectioners’ sugar, and mix well.
- In a separate bowl, melt the chocolate. Make sure to have a small amount of olive oil or other vegetable oil available, just in case your chocolate becomes stiff and difficult to stir (also known as seizing). Add about a tablespoon of oil for every half cup of melted chocolate (or more, if needed).
- Spoon the chocolate into each mold, and use the spoon to spread the chocolate over the mold.
- Put the mold into the freezer for 15 minutes.
- Take about 1/3 of the syrup and sugar mixture and put it in a separate bowl. Add yellow food coloring and mix well.
- Place the yellow mixture into one piping bag, and the white mixture into another bag.
- Remove the molds from your freezer.
- Fill each half egg with the white mixture.
- Pipe some of the yellow mixture inside the center of the white mixture.
- Make half eggs by smoothing chocolate on top of each egg mold.
- Place the mold in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
- Remove eggs from mold and decorate.

Whole Vegan Cadbury Eggs or Half?
Follow the instructions in the recipe below to make vegan Cadbury half eggs. But, if you’d like to make whole eggs, then here’s how:
- Make the sugar and syrup mixture as in the recipe.
- Coat the egg molds with melted chocolate, as described in the recipe.
- Put the molds in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
- Take the molds out of the freezer, and remove the chocolate egg halves.
- Put a small glass or ceramic plate in the microwave for about 30 seconds, or until it is hot to the touch.
- Take each of the chocolate egg halves and place it upside down on the hot plate, and move it around to make the edges smooth.
- Fill half of the egg halves with the white sugar and syrup mixture.
- Add a small dollop of the yellow sugar and syrup mixture to the center of the white mixture.
- Re-heat your plate, if it’s not still hot.
- Working quickly, take one of the empty chocolate egg halves, and place it upside down on the hot plate. Rub it around, and let the edge melt just a little bit.
- Fill the chocolate egg shell with the white sugar and syrup mixture.
- Set the egg half on top of a previously filled half, and press together to seal the seam.
- Put the filled eggs back into the freezer for about 30 minutes to set the chocolate.
What Mold is Best for Making Vegan Cadbury Creme Eggs?
My preference is a silicone mold (paid link), because they peel away from the chocolate easier than the acrylic ones. A silicone mold will give your vegan Cadbury creme eggs a beautifully glossy finish.
How to Store Your Completed Vegan Cadbury Creme Eggs
Just put your finished vegan Cadbury Creme Eggs in a container that is airtight. You can use a plastic bowl with an airtight lid, zipper-style plastic bag, or a jar with a screw-on lid…then just keep them on the counter at room temperature. Of course, they won’t last long, anyway! If you want to put them in the fridge, you can do that too, but you may come back to cloudy chocolate!
