Easter Dessert Idea: Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes Recipe
Don’t think this Easter dessert idea is just for kids, though because it’s actually my husband’s favorite treat. The Cadbury Egg is his favorite kind of chocolate which surprises me – but who am I to judge. He looks forward to this time of the year because it’s the ONLY time you can find these darn sweets.
And so do I because then I can make these cupcakes for him and the kids. Honestly, once you see how easy these cupcakes are, you will start to make them every Easter as well.
