HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE! This is just a little update as unfortunately I’m snowed under with life at the moment, it’s a miracle I found the time to bust this out! The thought of missing out on my very first Easter post as a blogger was beginning to upset me a little. Having a food blog is an absolute JOY as it provides an outlet to make some ridiculous stuff. Combine with this with the only time of the year we’re able to indulge in the miraculous, the stupendous Cadbury Creme Egg, and, well, the photos speak for themselves really. And if they don’t I’ll spell it out for you: YOU WANT THIS. YOU REALLY, REALLY WANT TO EAT THIS.
This is obviously a spectacular sugar hit but not without purpose; the toffee brioche sticks provide incredible crunch when coupled with a mouthful of egg goo (gross). It’s just delightul. Or potentially diabetic, I’m not quite sure which yet. Probably both. This will serve four people so get ready, it’s time to get stupid with eggs!
Cadbury Creme Egg + Soldiers
4 Cadbury Creme Eggs
4 slices thick brioche or bread
1 tbs butter
1 cup sugar
1. Slice bread/brioche into strips. Heat the butter in a pan and fry strips until beginning to brown. Ensure you rotate the pieces so all sides are evenly charred. Remove from pan and allow to drain on paper towels. Clean pan, return to heat and melt 1/4 cup of sugar until beginning to caramelise. Add soldiers, remove from heat and rotate once more so all strips are evenly coated. Transfer to parchment paper to cool. Repeat with remaining “naked” soldiers.
2. Remove tops of Creme Eggs with a knife. Place in egg cup and arrange with brioche soldiers.
HAPPY EASTER and I hope you all have a safe and wonderful holiday!
