Creme Egg Easter Chick | Tutorial!

Hello my sprinkles!

As Easter is just around the corner, I thought I would show you how to make some super cute Easter treats involving Cadbury Creme Eggs! I got the idea from my local guides where it is somewhat of a tradition to make marzipan 'sculptures', so I have added a few twists to make them more of 'my own'. So, I hope you enjoy reading, making and eating! :)

I will show you how to make the Easter Bunny in my next post!

You will need:
-Cadbury Creme Eggs
-125g marzipan (for each treat)
-Rich tea biscuits
-Yellow Food Colouring
-Chocolate Sprinkles
-Chocolate Chips



1. Cut approximately 125g marzipan from the packet and then split it into two; one piece should be around 4/6 and the other 2/6.

2. Pour about 5 small drops of yellow food colouring into a bowl and place aside.

3. Roll up your marzipan pieces into balls and then dip them into your food colouring. Now, roll the ball around in your hands to spread the colour, (it gets a bit messy but the colouring just washes off your hands) At regular intervals you should squish the marzipan and remould it so that you can get as much of it coloured as possible.

 Keep dipping it into the colouring until you get the colour desired:

4. Flatten the largest ball until it is about 1cm thick. Inside this you will put your creme egg, so if you want to make sure it is exactly right, unwrap your delicious cream egg and place it on the marzipan so you get an idea of how big it needs to be.

5. Wrap the creme egg up in the marzipan and place it on the rich tea biscuit, the marzipan will stick to the biscuit. You should have a little bit left over after this stage, don't throw it out, it's important for later!

6. Now place the smaller ball on top to create the head.

7. The leftovers from the body will now come in useful! Split it in two so you have enough for a beak and a tail and mould the two. Place the tail onto the bottom of the body and attach it by smoothing the sides.

8. Dip the moulded beak into the food colouring so that it is darker than the other areas. Next, place it near the bottom of the head and push so that it is securely in place.

You for some reason can't tell that the beak is darker in this light
9. As you can tell the chick is missing it's wings and its eyes. For the eyes all you need is two chocolate chips or balls and push them in its head!

10. For the wings get a handful of chocolate sprinkles and starting about 1/2 cm from the top begin to push them slightly into the body. You just need a rough wing shape, nothing fancy!

11. Enjoy!


 And there you have it, a super cute and tasty Easter Chick! I hope you enjoyed this little 'tutorial' and stay tuned for the adorable Easter bunny!

Happy Easter!
