When I was little, my two favorite Easter treats were white chocolate bunnies and Cadbury Cream Eggs.
The white chocolate bunnies were so special because I only ever had white chocolate at Easter. Then one year I had two white chocolate bunnies, and it was white chocolate overload and I haven’t felt the same way about white chocolate since.
But the cream egg… seems that no matter how many I eat a season, I never get sick of them.
Last year, I saw the Cookbook Queen make a homemade version. I was nervous to try making them myself and figured why go to the effort of making them just for myself.
Now I have Pinterest and a blog.
I pin many things (cream egg recipes included) and hope that one day I will try them. I’m making an effort to actually do the things I pin. So far, I’ve made once recipe (Irish Car Bomb cupcakes) and have turned “Fab Ab February” into “Fab Ab March”… which was going well for the first three weeks, but the last week is getting ridiculously hard.
And the blog inspires me to try new things so I can share them with you, my gentle readers. I’m not just making them for myself now… I’m making them for you too!
And the third reason that gave me the courage to try making my own cream eggs is that they are my boyfriend’s favorite Easter treat.
So I have made them. And the truth is, it’s not hard! And not time consuming. There’s just a lot of waiting for things to chill in the fridge or freezer. But you can do other stuff while you’re waiting for that. Like lick
the bowl clean or write a blog post. do the dishes.
I’m off to (hopefully) sunny Hawaii for two weeks, so unfortunately, no more posts til I get back. Don’t miss me too much!
