  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2 Tbsp vanilla
  • 6 Cadbury Eggs, roughly chopped (plus more for topping)


  • Heat cream, milk, sugar, and salt in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly, until the mixture just reaches the point of simmer. Then remove from heat.
  • While cream/milk mixture is heating, lightly whisk the egg yolks in a separate medium-sized heat-proof bowl.
  • Slowly pour about half of the warm milk/cream into the bowl with the egg yolks, whisking while you do so. This will temper the eggs so they don't scramble.
  • Then pour the egg/milk mixture back into the pan with the rest of the milk.
  • Continue to cook over low heat, while whisking. When the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of the spoon, after about 5-7 minutes, remove the saucepan from heat.
  • Strain the egg/milk mixture into a separate large bowl and stir in vanilla.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap, making sure plastic wrap is touching top of liquid so skin does not form, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  • Once mixture is chilled, freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions, mixing in Cadbury Creme Egg pieces when ice cream is almost done processing.
  • Remove ice cream to airtight containers and put in freezer for at least 6 hours to continue to harden.
