3-ingredient Creme Egg fudge recipe – a super simple Easter treat and the method is even microwave-friendly! Gluten-free and Coeliac-friendly too.
3-ingredient Creme Egg fudge recipe – from just 10 minutes of effort + chilling time, this is an Easter recipe not to be missed! Don’t forget to check out my Mini Egg fudge recipe too.
Yep, I’m back with another super-simple, 3-ingredient fudge recipe. But this time, it’s all about the Creme Eggs.
Whilst I won’t wade into the debate of Mini Eggs vs Creme Eggs, what I will suggest is that you should probably make both and decide for yourself!
Fortunately, whichever recipe you choose, the method is identical with both so once you know how to make one… you know how to make both!
Here’s the three magic ingredients you’ll need to make it possible:
3-ingredient Creme Egg fudge recipe: What you’ll need…
- Milk chocolate: In actual fact, white or milk chocolate works here so take your pick!
- Condensed milk: A simple can of condensed milk will do here – you’ll usually find it with all the caramel in the supermarket.
- Creme Eggs and Mini Creme Eggs: Yes, they’re gluten-free in the UK! You’ll find them down the seasonal aisle in everywhere from supermarkets, to bargain shops and even petrol stations. I used Creme Eggs and mini Creme Eggs.
So, what does it taste like? Well, first of all, this one super creamy, sweet and indulgent, with a rich milk chocolatey taste.
Every bite then has lots of chunky mini Creme Eggs packed into it, as well as the ‘big boys’ and a few more mini ones embedded on top.
Needless to say, if you’re a Creme Egg fan… this is the recipe for you!
Here’s a few frequently asked questions before we get started…
3-ingredient Creme Egg fudge recipe: Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make this recipe gluten-free? Is it suitable for Coeliacs?
It is gluten-free, though nobody would know just by tasting it – trust me!
Bear in mind that minimising cross-contamination is hugely important if you’re Coeliac or making this for someone who is. Here’s some tips from Coeliac UK on minimising the risk of cross contamination.
Also, make sure that all ingredients or products used don’t have any gluten-containing ingredients. Then make sure that they also don’t have a ‘may contain’ warning for gluten, wheat, rye, barley, oats (which aren’t gf), spelt and khorasan wheat (aka Kamut).
Here’s some more info from Coeliac UK on identifying safe gluten-free products.
Can I make your 3-ingredient Creme Egg fudge recipe dairy-free?
Unfortunately, as this recipe relies on three products that all contain dairy, this isn’t a simple one to make dairy-free.
I’m definitely not saying it’s impossible, but as I haven’t tested potential substitutes myself, I cannot guarantee results!
If I was to try, of course I’d start by using dairy-free chocolate.
For subbing condensed milk, I’d go for this with a couple of side notes you should know first: firstly, it uses gluten-free oat flour which is great if you can tolerate it, but not so great if you can’t. Secondly, it also has a ‘may contain’ for milk, so may not be suitable for all dairy-free folks.
And of course, when it comes to ditching the Creme Eggs, any dairy-free Easter treats would likely work well. Remember, I haven’t tested these subs yet, but I hope it helps!
Can I make your 3-ingredient Creme Egg fudge recipe vegan?
See the dairy-free answer above.
Is this recipe low FODMAP?
Unfortunately, as this recipe relies on products that are high in lactose, this isn’t an easy one to make low FODMAP.
Are Creme Eggs gluten-free?
Yes, they are in the UK! They don’t have any gluten-containing ingredients or a ‘may contain’ warning for gluten.
Tap here to read the ingredients label for yourself on the Creme Eggs and tap here to read the ingredients of mini Creme Eggs – it never hurts to double-check! You’ll find them down the seasonal aisle in the supermarket.
Do I need any special equipment to make your 3-ingredient Creme Egg fudge recipe?
Nope! You can actually make this entirely by hand – no electric mixers required. If melting the chocolate on the hob, you’ll need a heatproof bowl or failing that, you can use the microwave instead.
Can I make this recipe using milk instead of condensed milk?
That’s a definite no! Not only are they an entirely different consistency, but totally different ingredients. Plus, as this recipe only uses 3 ingredients, you have very little margin for error.
So it’s condensed milk or nothing, I’m afraid!
3-ingredient Creme Egg Fudge Recipe
- 400 g milk chocolate
- 397 g condensed milk
- 300 g Creme Eggs mixture of mini ones and regular sized ones
- Melt together your milk chocolate and condensed milk over a low heat or in the microwave in short bursts. Make sure you mix them together so they are well combined.
- Stir in your creme eggs, I tend to keep some whole and cut some in half. You'll need to keep a few for the top too!
- Pour the mixture into a lined 9 inch square tin and add the creme eggs you saved to the top – as this is to make them look good I half all the ones on top so you get the white and yolk.
- Chill in the fridge for a 2-3 hours or overnight to firm up, then chop into chunks and enjoy! If you can, store them in the fridge.
