Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups whole milk
  • ¼ cup plus 2 Tbsp granulated sugar, divided
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • ¼ 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
  • ½ cup crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ 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
  • cup heavy cream
  • ¼ tsp salt

Instructions

  • 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).
  • In a large bowl, whisk egg yolks with sugar, cornstarch, and salt.
  • Slowly whisk hot milk mixture into egg yolk mixture and then pour the combined mixture back into the saucepan.
  • Place over medium heat, whisking constantly, until mixture gets very thick and custardy, about 3 minutes.
  • Remove saucepan from heat and stir in chopped Cadbury Creme Eggs. Whisk until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is smooth.
  • Pour chocolate mixture into prepared chocolate pie crust.
  • Smooth top with a spatula and cover with plastic wrap, so plastic wrap is touching the top of the pie filling.
  • Refrigerate pie for at least 3 hours to cool completely.
  • Once cooled, top with caramel whipped cream. Drizzle additional caramel sauce on the top of the pie, if desired.

Chocolate Mini Egg Crust

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place chocolate wafer cookies in a food processor and blend until chocolate crumbs are formed.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix together chocolate wafer cookie crumbs, crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs, melted butter, and salt.
  • Pour cookie crumbs into the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate and press down along bottom and sides of dish.
  • Bake pie crust for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

Caramel Whipped Cream

  • 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.
  • Beat in caramel sauce.

Homemade Caramel Sauce

  • 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.
  • Stir butter into sugar, for about 1 minute, until the butter is completely melted.
  • Stir the heavy cream into the mixture and let it come to a boil.
  • 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.
