Cadbury Creme Egg Pies

Disclosure: I received product from Hershey’s and a stipend from Global Influence for this post. All opinions are my own.

Easter is getting closer, and that means it is time to start thinking about candy! My kids love almost any kind of Easter candy, and so do I. Candy is also fun to use in desserts, so when I got a whole bunch of Easter candy from Hershey’s I wanted to use it to make something different.  I decided to see what would happen if I baked a Cadbury Creme Egg into a pie.

Cadbury Creme Egg Hand Pies - an easy Easter dessert using Cadbury Creme Eggs

The result was a delicious combination of crispy pie crust with melty chocolate and cream. 

Making Cadbury Egg Pies

To make the pies I used some refrigerated pie crust that I had left over.  I rolled it out flat, and then cut it into 5 inch circles.

Making Cadbury Egg Pies

I used a tart pan as a pattern, but anything between 5 and 6 inches in diameter would work.  Then I put a CADBURY Crème Egg in the middle of the pie crust, and sealed the edges with water and fork.

Baking Cadbury Creme Eggs into Pies

To make it look and taste better I brushed the pie crust with egg white and sprinkled it with sugar.  I baked the pies for 10 minutes and let them cool a little bit before eating.  These pies were a big hit, and were gone in no time!

  28. Irene M says

    I love our Easter egg hunt. But the eggs and candy are not hidden in plain sight or not so plain sight. They are REALLY hidden. I hand everyone a cryptic clue to begin the hunt. That clue will lead them to the first hiding place, where the first person to reach it will find a ‘treasure’ and the clue to the next hiding place, and so forth. But the clues must be left in place to those following will have a chance to find the next treasure also. I think I have almost as much fun hiding the treasure and composing the clues as the kids do searching. My favorite recipe on the Hersheys site would be the Delicious #HERSHEYS Peanut Butter Kissed Pie. Unfortunately, my granddaughter is allergic to peanuts, so I would make this just for myself!

    This looks great! I buy these eggs for my college student children and tell them to share after taking a test or studying for a final.

One lawn stake decoration of an bunny with basket of eggs I’ve had since my children were very young and it comes out every year and still looks great.
