Creme Egg Rocky Road

An Easter version of my easy-to-make rocky road recipe featuring Cadbury creme eggs.

Three pieces of Creme Egg rocky road surrounded by Creme Eggs in their wrappers.

After sharing my take on a traditional rocky road recipe last year, followed by a snowy version over Christmas, I thought it would be fun to make an Easter variety. Frankly that meant it had to include Cadbury creme eggs. Is there anyone out there who doesn’t like creme eggs?!

It used to be that creme eggs came out nearer to Easter time than Christmas, however more recently it seems tradition for the supermarkets to have them on the shelves on Boxing Day. I have even heard it rumoured that they have been spotted in the days just before Christmas! Surely not…

Incorporating creme eggs into a rocky road recipe is very easy. Three tips are:

  • Aesthetically-wise it will look much better if you use mini creme eggs.
  • You will need to freeze them a few hours before you intend to make the rocky road (along with the marshmallows). This allows them to keep their shape when you mix them together with the warmed chocolate mixture.
  • Finally, once you take them out of the freezer, chop them in half so that you get to show off their classic yellow and white inside.

In the UK mini creme eggs come in bags of eight, so you will need a couple of bags for this recipe. When I was testing the recipe I first substituted the creme eggs for the raisins and cherries, however I felt the recipe lacked something so added them back in. However it is personal preference, you can pretty much add anything to the core ingredients of chocolate, butter, syrup, biscuits and marshmallows and it is going to taste great!

Creme Egg Rocky Road

An Easter version of my easy-to-make rocky road recipe featuring Cadbury creme eggs. Recipe VIDEO below.

Course Dessert, Snack
Active Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 12 people
Calories 427 kcal


  • 140 g butter
  • 150 g rich tea biscuits
  • 250 g milk chocolate
  • 120 g dark chocolate
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup
  • 50 g mini marshmallows
  • 50 g raisins
  • 40 g glace cherries
  • 16 mini creme eggs 2 bags


  1. Put the mini creme eggs (16) and the marshmallows (50g) in the freezer for a couple of hours beforehand (ensuring the the marshmallows are separated from each other) so that they will hold their shape.
  2. Melt in a pan on very low heat the milk chocolate (250g), dark chocolate (120g), butter (140g) and golden syrup (4 tbsp), stirring regularly to ensure it doesn’t burn.
  3. Once the chocolate has melted set aside 150ml to be used later, leave the rest in the pan but turn off the heat.
  4. Crush the biscuits (150g) into small pieces (but not too small, have a look at the original rocky road post for an idea of size if you are unsure) and fold into the chocolate mixture in the pan.
  5. Chop the cherries in halves or thirds depending on their size and add to the pan.
  6. Mix in the raisins (50g) and mini marshmallows (50g).
  7. Chop the mini creme eggs into half. Set aside half of them to use later and put the other half in the pan and mix in gently.
  8. Lay out baking parchment onto a tray (20cmx26cm) and spoon the mixture onto it. Press down firmly on the mixture to compress it so it forms an even layer.
  9. Pour the 150ml of melted chocolate, which you set aside earlier, evenly across the top of the mixture. The idea is to fill in any gaps with it, and create a slightly smoother top surface. The liquid should only just cover all of the surface, so you may need to spread it with a spoon or spatula to distribute it evenly.
  10. Put the remaining creme eggs on top of the rocky road (with the white and yellow creme showing on top), pushing them down carefully into the mixture so that the very top of the creme eggs are just above the surface.
  11. Finally put it in the fridge to set. It will be set enough to eat in about two hours, although I prefer to leave overnight.
  12. Once set, cut it into squares and serve.

Recipe Notes

In addition to the 15 minutes it takes to make this recipe please allow an ADDITIONAL 2 HOURS for the rocky road to cool. I’d recommend using milk and dark chocolate from the baking aisle rather than the sweet aisle in the supermarket as it’s easier to melt and less likely to seize and go lumpy.

  1. Wish I read the comment about diary milk before I tried it twice and it went horribly wrong both times ! Will need to try again with baking chocolate and hope for the best!

    • Charlotte Oates

      Fingers crossed it works for you next time around. Sadly the ingredients in Dairy Milk make it very temperamental when heated. You may be OK over a bain marie but I find it seizes very easily compared to other chocolate.

  2. Hi, I too saw these on Facebook and made them for my friends yesterday for Easter. We all loved them so wanted to say thanks. Creme eggs are my favourite but will also try Cadburys mini eggs in them next year.

    • Charlotte Oates

      I love the idea of a mini egg version. I’m thinking of creating a version using Malteaster bunnies next year too.

  3. I made these for friends and family for Easter presents. All complemented how yummy they were! I was unable to get mini creme eggs so I used mini oreo eggs instead. Not as colourful but still tasty.

    • Charlotte Oates

      Thanks Yvonne. I’m glad your family and friends all enjoyed them. Good to know they work well with Oreo eggs too.

  4. These taste soooooo good! Saw them on Facebook and decided I had to try them. So glad I did.

    • Thanks, I’m glad you enjoyed them 🙂

      • I am having problems getting the mini cream eggs. Can anyone tel me which stores sell them please ?

        • They should have them in all the major supermarkets. However I have found that they tend to sell out close to Easter. If you can’t get hold of them then you can also chop up the big Creme Eggs, it may not look quite as neat but it’ll taste just the same. As a guide 1 large creme egg = 4 mini creme eggs in terms of weight.

  5. I made these last year at Easter and they tasted amazing. Just bought the ingredients to make them again, couldn’t hold out until Easter

  6. Hi Charlotte,

    If i were to make these today (Wednesday) do you think they will last for a dinner party on Friday evening? Or do you recommend only making them the night before?

  7. Danielle Holdsworth

    It’s Mini Creme Egg Rocky Road Easter Saturday! The mini creme eggs and marshmallows are in the freezer and the Green & Black’s are sitting temptingly on the kitchen counter. Here we go….Happy Easter!

  8. These are amazing thanks. Good old Aldi chocolate worked a treat 🙂 Also love the fact that you repeated the quantities in the recipe method… even the top chefs don’t do that. It made following the recipe so much easier – thanks!

    • I love the Aldi chocolate, it’s perfect for baking.

      I hate having to scroll up and down on my phone (as I usually end up with mucky fingers when I cook and I don’t want that on my phone) so I added the measurements in the recipe so I don’t have to.

  9. Can I use Marg instead of butter?? Can’t wait to make these with the kids today!!

  10. Great recipe Charlotte, my children would really like these. 🙂

  11. Saw the video on Facebook, and made these this afternoon – they look amazing! Nice easy recipe to follow, so will definitely make them again, and perhaps try putting mini eggs in rather than the creme eggs next time… mmm… mini eggs! 😉

  12. My little boy and I have just made these!! It’s in the fridge as we speak! Super easy to make although he kept eating the marshmallow and raisins!! Can’t wait to have one or two for pudding!!

  13. Mine was a disaster, the chocolate/butter mixture separated and went grainy. What did i do wrong?

    • Charlotte Oates

      What type of chocolate did you use? I always buy mine from the baking aisle as some from the sweet aisle tend to do that. Also make sure the heat under the pan is really low.

      • Yes I suspect this is the problem – I used Dairy milk. In actual fact, I persevered anyway (not wanting to waste the chocolate) and although it probably isn’t as good as it should be, and didn’t mix that well, it still tastes ok!

        • Charlotte Oates

          Sadly I had the same problem with Dairy Milk when I tried it. It’s yummy chocolate but absolutely rubbish for baking.

    • I had the same issue! Used baking chocolate and everything! But it separated out. So I tried doing it on 50% power in the microwave – same issue again!

      • Try melting the chocolate and butter in a glass bowl over a hot pan of water on the stove, it prevents the chocolate from burning. I always melt my chocolate like this, and never have had any problems

  14. I’m making these for the Comic Relief cake bake sale on Friday at work – had a lot of interest in them 🙂

  15. Sounds delicious 🙂 I looked at the rocky road recipe and there seems to be more butter and choc used here but the same amount of biscuits and other ingredients. is this extra choc/butter mix just needed here because of the addition of the eggs (a bit more volume to help it all stick)?
    Thank you

    • Yes. When we originally developed the recipe we tried just adding the extra creme eggs but it was too crumbly and fell apart and there wasn’t enough chocolate to pour on the top so we upped the quantities.

  16. Would it work without the butter?

    • Yes although it would be harder to bit as the butter softens it all a bit and makes it easier to eat. If you want to leave out the butter then you’ll need to up the amount of chocolate otherwise there won’t be enough to hold it all together.

    I have this on my Pinterest board had so much interest and repins I had to try them. OMG so delicious but not good for Slimming world lol. Hey ho worth every bite. Thanks

    • Charlotte Oates

      I’m so glad you enjoyed them! They’re definitely not slimming world friendly, but if you’re going to have a treat then it might as well be a good one 🙂

      Thanks for pinning the recipe and have a happy Easter x


  19. These look fabulous, Charlotte. Great tip to put the cream eggs in the freezer. Otherwise I can imagine a very squishy mess! Still would taste good, though, I’m sure! Totally agree with Kate – what’s not to like? …Well maybe the nutritional information 😉 Love how the blogosphere has gone from one extreme to the other. One minute everyone was blogging uber healthy vegan meals now suddenly it’s pancakes, cream eggs and lashings of maple syrup and chocolate everywhere 🙂 Eb x

    • You can do it without putting the eggs in the freezer but they melt in the warm chocolate so they’re harder to distinguish (still tastes good though!).

      My blog constantly bounces around between healthy and unhealthy, glad to see the rest of the blogging world is following suit. I’m always torn between knowing I need some nutrients and wanting to make things with chocolate. It’s a constant struggle 🙂

  20. Oh wow – these look and sound amazing! I NEED to make them. x

  21. I have to make these. Just yum!!!

  22. Mmmm. delicious, the combination of the crème eggs and cherries looks really pretty too. It could almost be a health food with that dried fruit in there! 🙂
