    Default Creme eggs

    It's coming to that time of year where creme eggs are everywhere. Usually I can resist chocolate but I LOVED these with a passion. Is there any way to make the fondant icing inside to have with vegan chocolate?

    This would be my ultimate most favourite chocolate in the world!

    thanks for that link, wow I'm in chocolate heaven!

    I also found this on about halfway down the page, and it appears to be vegan if you use vegan margarine instead of the butter, and vegan chocolate. yay!

    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    1/4 cup butter, softened
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3 cups powdered sugar
    4 drops yellow food coloring
    2 drops red food coloring
    1 12-ounce bags milk chocolate chips
    2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
    1. Combine the corn syrup, butter, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl. Beat well with an electric mixer until smooth.
    2. Add powdered sugar, one cup at a time, mixing by hand after each addition. Mix well until creamy.
    3. Remove about 1/3 of the mixture and place it into a small bowl. Add the yellow and red food coloring and stir well to combine.
    4. Cover both mixtures and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until firm.
    5. When mixtures are firm, roll a small, marble-size ball from the orange filling, and wrap around it a portion of the white filling that is roughly twice the size. Form this filling into the shape of an egg and place it onto a cookie sheet that has been brushed with a light coating of shortening. Repeat for the remaining filling ingredients, then refrigerate these centers for 3-4 hours or until firm.
    6. Combine the milk chocolate chips with the shortening in a glass or ceramic bowl. Microwave chocolate on high speed for 1 minute, then stir and microwave again for 1 more minute, and stir.
    7. Use a fork to dip each center into the chocolate, tap the fork on the side of the bowl, then place each candy onto wax paper. Chill.
    8. After 1-2 hours of chilling, dip each candy once more and chill for several hours, or until completely firm.
    Makes 2 dozen candy eggs.

    Obviously very bad for you! but so yummy!

    I'm willing to say that those Creme eggs are really very good indeed, order early! They ran out of stock last year.
