Homemade Cadbury Cream Eggs

Okay so this might be a little intense for an 8:30am conversation, but do you ever think about the bigger picture when you're driving around or sitting in traffic? Like do you ever think, "what the hell am I doing?" Why am I so concerned with trivial crap and nonsense that ultimately doesn't matter in the big picture of life. Who cares if someone cut in line in front of me and who cares if one person that I use to be friends turned out to be a jerk and doesn't talk to me anymore. I mean I get it, we are only human and we are consumed with little things that annoy us or hurt us or make us angry, but we only have one life to live and we keep quoting that quote and repeating it and everyone and their mother has posted it to their instagram feed so how come we always forget to live by it? What we are worried about now isn't going to matter in ten years, five years, hell even one year. I really think we all have to be reminded to let go of things that don't matter. I think we all should love a little harder and put our families first, our wife first, our husband first, girlfriend, boyfriend, and ourselves first. The quote "you only have one life so live it" is literal. You only get one chance and you'll blink and it will be over so love your babies while you can, kiss your spouse while you can, go on date nights, travel a lot, laugh all the time, and just live. 

OK that was a lot. Now enjoy this homemade Cadbury egg recipe because they are amazing. Live a little. Xx


Homemade Cadbury Cream Eggs

Makes approx. 20 eggs

1⁄2cup light corn syrup
1⁄4cup butter  (room temperature)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
3 cups powdered sugar (sifted)
2 drops yellow food coloring
1 drops red food coloring
24 hollow chocolate Easter eggs

1. Combine the corn syrup, butter, vanilla and salt in a large bowl and beat well with an electric mixer until smooth.

2. Slowly add powdered sugar and mix by hand, until completely smooth.

3. Remove 1/4 of the mixture and place in a small bowl. To this add two drops of yellow food coloring and one drop of red and mix well. This will be your "yolk".

4. Using a serrated knife, cut of the tops of all of your hollow eggs. You need to be gentle with this process. I heated my knife under hot water and then quickly dried it before cutting my chocolate egg because it helped go through more easily without breaking the eggs. You will break a couple. Just cut slowly and move the knife back and forth and don't just cut downward.

5. Fill each egg with the white mixture and add a dollop of yellow sugar mixture on top. Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving.
