  • 1 3/4 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp granulated sugar, divided
  • 3 large egg yolks

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 Cadbury Creme Eggs chopped
  • Chocolate Mini Egg Crust (recipe below)
  • Caramel Whipped Cream (recipe below)
Chocolate Mini Egg Crust:
  • 28 chocolate wafer cookies
  • 1/2 cup crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 tsp salt
Caramel Whipped Cream:
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 3 Tbsp caramel sauce (recipe below)
Homemade Caramel Sauce:
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • ¼ tsp salt
Instructions
  1. Heat milk and 2 Tbsp sugar in a medium saucepan, until just about to boil (bubbles will be forming at the edges of the saucepan).

  2. In a large bowl, whisk egg yolks with sugar, cornstarch, and salt.
  3. Slowly whisk hot milk mixture into egg yolk mixture and then pour the combined mixture back into the saucepan.
  4. Place over medium heat, whisking constantly, until mixture gets very thick and custardy, about 3 minutes.
  5. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in chopped Cadbury Creme Eggs. Whisk until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is smooth.
  6. Pour chocolate mixture into prepared chocolate pie crust.
  7. Smooth top with a spatula and cover with plastic wrap, so plastic wrap is touching the top of the pie filling.
  8. Refrigerate pie for at least 3 hours to cool completely.
  9. Once cooled, top with caramel whipped cream. Drizzle additional caramel sauce on the top of the pie, if desired.
Chocolate Mini Egg Crust:
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place chocolate wafer cookies in a food processor and blend until chocolate crumbs are formed.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together chocolate wafer cookie crumbs, crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs, melted butter, and salt.
  4. Pour cookie crumbs into the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate and press down along bottom and sides of dish.
  5. Bake pie crust for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
Caramel Whipped Cream:
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, whip cream until soft peaks form, about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Beat in caramel sauce.
Homemade Caramel Sauce:
  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, heat granulated sugar over medium heat. Stir frequently with a rubber spatula until sugar turns into a smooth light amber-color liquid.
  2. Stir butter into sugar, for about 1 minute, until the butter is completely melted.
  3. Stir the heavy cream into the mixture and let it come to a boil.
  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in salt. Pour the mixture into an airtight container like a mason jar or bowl. Store in fridge until ready to use.
