The keto version of your favorite Easter candy

Cadbury eggs are irresistible with their gooey, sugar filling that explodes when you bite into the chocolate covered shell. These keto Cadbury creme eggs have a similar filling to that of the real thing but without the carbs or sugars, so you don't have to give in or miss out this Easter.

Easter is another holiday that is flooded with delicious candies. From chocolates to jelly beans, they are everywhere! Just because you follow a low carb lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to miss out on your favorites, including this keto Cadbury eggs. I also have recipes for chewy sugar-free caramels and even banana laffy taffy! There is something for everyone.

Making a keto Cadbury egg is quite simple as long as you have the right tools and ingredients. Sugar-free chocolate is melted with a touch of coconut oil. A silicone egg mold is lightly coated with the melted chocolate. For the filling, we use a combination of a thick keto syrup and butter. Some recipes for low carb Cadbury eggs use cream cheese or buttercream frosting as the filling but this strays away from the original recipe. With my keto Cadbury creme egg recipe, you will get that same delicious filling ooze out when you bite into these chocolate covered eggs.

How to make keto cadbury eggs

  1. Make chocolate shell. Melt keto chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave or over the stove top using the double boiler method. Coat the inside cavities of a silicone egg mold with the melted chocolate. Freeze until hardened.
  2. Make creamy filling. Combine sugar-free vanilla syrup with butter, vanilla and salt. Mix until smooth. Pull out a little bit of the filling for the yolk and add additional sweetener and yellow food coloring.
  3. Assemble the eggs. Add a dollop of white and yellow filling to the inside of the harden chocolate shell. Top with additional melted chocolate and freeze for 5 minutes to set.

Key equipment

Of course, we will need to make these into an egg shape. It’s easiest to use a silicone mold that makes a half egg shape. Not only do these lay properly so they don’t roll around but we don’t have to worry about sealing the two egg halves together. Here are some different mold options and sizes. Silicone molds are preferred over a plastic molds because it is easy to peel the mold away from the chocolate.

 

Key ingredients

  • Chocolate – For this keto Easter candy recipe, I use sugar-free chocolate. Baker’s chocolate or a dark chocolate can also be used; however, it can be bitter so you may have to add additional powdered sugar-free sweetener. Coconut oil is added to the chocolate to thin it out so that it is easier to spread into the mold.
  • Vanilla syrup – Using a sugar free vanilla syrup has multiple roles. Not only does it help to create that gooey center, but it also adds a slight vanilla flavor and sweetness. Allulose syrup may be used as well.
  • Butter – Adds flavor to our candy center and helps thicken up the texture of the filling too.

Chocolate shell

The chocolate shell on this sugar-free cadbury egg is made easy since we use semi-sweet keto chocolate chips. These melt easily in the microwave. Once melted the chocolate has a thick consistency so it is thinned out using coconut oil. If you don’t like coconut oil, you can use butter or ghee in it’s place.

Options for chocolate in this recipe include:

  • ChocZero – Sugar free and sugar alcohol free (use code KETOFOCUS to save 10% off your order with my affiliate link). Enjoy dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate – even peanut butter
  • Lily’s – The orginal keto chocolate chip. These are sugar free and come in different flavors as well.
  • Baker’s chocolate – This is 100% unsweetened chocolate. You will probably need to add a touch of sweetener or even butter to this melted chocolate unless you like bitter chocolate.
  • 90% Dark Chocolate – If you can’t find keto chocolate, grab a bar of dark chocolate like Lindt. It will add more sugar and carbs but at least you will have a chocolate shell.

Sugar-free egg filling

Unlike other keto cadbury egg recipes, this recipe doesn’t use any cream cheese! Let’s face it, there is no cream cheese in the original cadbury egg. Instead it is buttery and sweet. That’s why we use butter and a sweetened sugar-free syrup.

Storage information

The longer these candy eggs sit at room temperature, the more the creamy center will be smooth and drip out as you bite into it.

For longer storage, you should place these keto treats in the refrigerator or even the freezer.

Keto Cadbury Eggs: FAQS

What can I use instead of a silicone egg mold?

In a pinch, you could use a muffin tray with muffin liners. These won't be egg shaped, but at least they will taste good.

Can I make these dairy-free?

I haven't tried this yet, but I don't see why not. Make sure you use a chocolate that is dairy-free. Instead of using butter, try using coconut oil. They will be more temperature sensitive so keep that in mind when storing this keto Easter dessert.

Instead of a half an egg, how do I make a whole egg shape?

After you harden the shell, remove two half egg shells from the silicone liner. Place the edge of one egg half on a non-stick skillet (over medium heat) to melt uniformly for a few seconds. Add in filling to this egg. Melt the other egg shell half similar to the first and place on top. Freeze until set.

  1. Your Cadbury Egg recipe is really good. Love the buttery taste of the filling. These turned out awesome! My husband had said the one thing he was missing at Easter time was Cadbury Eggs. But, we know how sugary those were. I will definitely make these again. Thank you for all the wonderful recipes you provide.
