Homemade vegan creme eggs: Can it be done? »
Liza Eckert attempts to make vegan creme eggs chez elle for Persephone, with mixed results. Mainly because her electric mixer gave out before the ingredients of the creamy centers were fully combined, and then she ran into trouble with apportioning the chocolate shells … but, she says, “Nothing, not even weird consistency or uneven chocolate, will stand between me and my creme eggs.”
Have any of you attempted to make creme eggs? I loved the Cadbury’s original more than life itself as a kid, and had an excellent grown-up version at Timeless the other week—creamier centers with a sort of lemony finish to the vanilla, offset by darker chocolate—but I’ve never felt inclined to do them myself. There’s a recipe on VegWeb, though, for the brave!

Vegan creme eggs, y’all! Of course, not everything is wonderful because they’re in England and currently unavailable but I suggest you bookmark that page and refresh the living hell out of it. At least that’s what I’m gonna do from now until Easter but I’m a freelancer so I ain’t got nothing but time, baby! In completely unrelated news: PLEASE HIRE ME.
In the event that the eggs never available for purchase (I’ve got a bad feeling about this), you can always make your own. Good luck with that, Martha.
UPDATE: Oh snap, they might not actually be filled with creme. I can’t tell! Oh well, I did find where you can actually buy some (and lots of other vegan easter candy, too!) OH and someone posted on the Facebook wall, here are some for real vegan creme eggs to order! From the UK, too. Man, they’ve got that shit on lockdown.
