Chocolate Cadbury Egg Easter Cupcakes

Cadbury Egg Chocolate Easter Cupcakes |

Oops, I did it again. I put Cadbury Eggs in a cupcake. I just couldn’t help myself. It’s not the first time. I did it a couple of years ago for these pretty little aqua cupcakes but I decided the world needed a fully chocolate (with caramel) drizzle version that was even easier to make. Enter these Chocolate Cadbury Egg Easter Cupcakes! You can make these with a baby attached to your foot, trust me. They’re oh so decadent and the surprise inside? The yummiest! If you know someone who LOVES Cadbury Eggs, then you definitely need to tell them about these cupcakes…

Baking Cadbury Eggs into cupcakes is really simple, but there are a few little tips I want to tell you so you won’t have any trouble and you’ll be on your way to eating these bad boys STAT! First, freeze your Cadbury Eggs beforehand. The night before or the day before (at least a couple of hours before), just pop your eggs in the freezer. Next, only fill the baking liners 1/4 full of batter. Then place each Cadbury Egg in (wide side first) and top with a tablespoon of batter (it will go over the top and down the sides). Ta-da! This will help the Cadbury Egg bake right inside and not ooze everywhere. Easy easy!

See? They are baked right inside and still hold their shape. You can absolutely make mini cupcakes with the mini Cadbury Eggs too. I haven’t tried the caramel or chocolate eggs, but I’m sure they would work too. If you try them out, let me know in the comments! I chose a cake mix for this recipe because I’m always looking for quick ways to jazz up cake mixes. You can *certainly* make these with your favorite homemade chocolate cake.
