A homemade chocolate ice cream recipe mixed with Cadbury Creme Eggs. If you’re a Cadbury Creme Egg fan, then you need to try this for your Easter dessert! Make this ice cream recipe ahead of time so it’s ready to go when the craving hits!
If you’re try to plan your Easter dessert, then let it include this Chocolate Cadbury Crème Ice Cream. It’s a homemade dark chocolate ice cream loaded with Cadbury Creme Eggs! I meeaaaaaan……love.
This was my first homemade chocolate ice cream and I have fallen totally in love. I have to say my KitchenAid ice cream maker doesn’t get nearly enough of a workout. More ice cream recipes please!
If you are like me, maybe you are a little intimated to make homemade ice cream. I promise you that there is nothing to be afraid of! It is seriously so easy and you might never buy store-bought ice cream again. Eh, that’s a stretch, but you know what I mean!
Easy base recipe for any homemade ice cream.
To make this ice cream you only need 4 simple ingredients:
- Heavy whipping cream
- Granulated Sugar
- Cocoa powder (dark chocolate preferred- I like Hershey’s Special Dark)
- Vanilla Extract
The steps to make this are simple!
- First you’ll heat a portion of the heavy cream together with the sugar and cocoa powder so that they dissolve into the heavy cream.
- Then you’ll add the remaining heavy cream and refrigerate the mixer until it’s completely cooled.
Don’t forget to prefreeze your ice cream maker according to the manufacturers instructions. This after requires 12+ hours, so through that in the freezer a day ahead of time.
Helpful tips for the Cadbury Eggs
The key to keeping the characteristics of the Cadbury Eggs- ie the cream filling, I cut them into pieces and frozen them before adding them to the churning ice cream. This will leave your ice cream with chunks of the Cadbury Eggs as opposed to the filling mixing into the ice cream. It’s a win if you ask me.
So make sure you also toss these in the freezer ahead of time so that they have a chance to freeze too.
When adding the ice cream, it’s best to add once it reaches the soft-serve like consistency. Then save 1/3 of the chocolate eggs to add once you’ve poured it into your freezer-safe container. This guarantees you’ll have chunks throughout.

This looks delicious and I’m about to make it to share with my sister. Can you clarify if I’m to use 3/4 cup or 1 cup sugar? The recipe states 3/4 c and the directions said 1 cup. I don’t want to use to much and definitely not too little. 😁
Hi Lisa- sorry for the confusion. Yes, this is 3/4 cups of sugar- the recipe has been updated
This looks like a delicious alternative to actually eating the eggs. It looks like you used the mini eggs, do you think it would work with the regular sized creme eggs? I have a bunch of those lying around still but only 3 mini’s left. I’m tired of Easter candy, but I can’t say no to a dark chocolate ice cream with candy mixed in.
Hi Shelly! I actually did not use the minis! I used the regular sized Cadbury eggs and them smashed them before freezing.
2 of my favorite things combined into 1 fabulousness!! I’d probably eat the whole batch in a sitting. This looks beyond delicious!
I love King Arthur Flour. There is a big store in VT. It’s about 3 hours away from me but every now and then we are in the area and I buy loads of stuff from them. Not to mention they have a great online store. 🙂
That’s totally right Tina! I grew up in Southern Vermont but I haven’t ever been to their store. I am totally making a trip back next time I go home!
It sounds like your boyfriend and my husband would get along swimmingly! The first thing my husband asked me to bake was rice krispy treats. I remember just looking at him, like, is that a serious request?
This ice cream looks fabulous! I still haven’t braved homemade ice cream but I’d better hurry up about it before all the cadbury cream eggs are gone!!!
Yes, it’s totally serious. I make him his own batch every time I make a batch for the blog.
Julianne, love this ice cream… very creative! Very tempting since my machine bowl is already sitting in the freezer and ready at any given moment! Looks like you had a blast with all the peeps over there with KA! #sojelly 😉
AHAHA! I totally thought of you and your double ice cream makers!
