Homemade Cadbury Cream Cookie Cups Recipe- Homemade Cadbury Cream stuffed inside chocolate chip cookie cups. Amazing!!!

The first day of spring should be celebrated, don’t you think? St. Patrick’s Day is fun and all but thankfully Target breaks out the cream eggs on February 15th. Seriously, how many of us have bought the infamous eggs for our childrens’ Easter baskets only to buy them again (and again) to cover our transgressions?

Cadbury Cream Cookie Cups Recipe - Homemade Cadbury Cream tucked inside a delicious chocolate chip cookie cup

When I realized how easy it is to make this beloved creamy confection at home I couldn’t wait to give it a try. Let me tell you it was delicious. And messy. As we all sat back and enjoyed our homemade cream eggs I noticed that my kitchen looked like a crime scene. There was chocolate everywhere, and sticky cream fingerprints adorned every surface. Being the lazy creative person that I am the idea for these cookie cups was born.

Cadbury Cream Cookie Cups Recipe - Homemade Cadbury Cream just like the candy!

Is there an Easter candy that is a MUST for your basket? Each year I buy malt balls as a sort of punishment for my kids and myself. Do people actually like those things? They were always the very last pieces of candy in the bottom of my Easter basket.

Cadbury Cream Cookie Cups Recipe

Homemade Cadbury Cream filling stuffed into chewy chocolate chip cookie cups
Servings 12 Cookie Cups


  • Chocolate chip cookie dough prepared or purchased
  • ½ Cup light corn syrup
  • ¼ Cup salted butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 Cups powdered sugar
  • Yellow food coloring


  • Prepare your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough. Spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray and add about 3 Tablespoons of dough to each muffin well. Bake for 13-15 minutes until golden. Let cool 15 minutes in the pan. The middle will sink in. To help it along you can press a small glass (or spice jar) into the well to create a cookie cup. While the cookies are warm but firm use the tips of your fingers to gently twist the cookie cups up and out of the pan. Let cool completely.
  • In the bowl of your mixer combine corn syrup, butter, and vanilla until smooth. Slowly add powdered sugar and mix until incorporated.
  • Remove about 1/4 of the cream and dye with yellow food coloring.
  • Pour white cream into the cookie cups. Finish off with a small drop of yellow cream.

    Good golly, those are ooey gooey. My British husband insists on buying Cadbury's Cream Eggs any time he sees them. We recently tried the Chocolate Cream Eggs.. whoa. Those are pretty incredible. Bet you can just add a little cocoa powder and get the same taste. Cookie cups are a *great* idea. I'd much prefer that to the chocolate shell.

    I love the contrast between the textures (and the brightness from the food dye is eye-catching) – the creaminess from the filling against the rustic cookie cups – very ingenious =) I'm sure there were some very happy eaters in your kitchen 😉

    I think your malt ball issues stem from the fact that you hhave probably only experienced American malt balls like Whoppers, which are like cement covered in brown wax. Find some Cadbury Malteasers and let one melt between your tongue and the roof of your mouth and you will no longer hate maltballs (only the American ones :))

    While good in theory, these are much much much too sweet for anyone to actually be able to eat. I was so excited to try these out since Cadbury Eggs are my absolute favorite candy. I followed the directions exactly, and it's just way too much sweet. Way way way too much. I'm pretty disappointed, but I'll just chalk it up to a learning experience.

  42. #
    Alison — April 3, 2012 at 12:15 am

    If I made any of these, I would be the only one it the house eating them. I LOVE CADBURY EGGS!!! They used to be super good here but they started getting thicker insides and not being as yummy. I had them England and they were the best thing that I had ever tried!! I think that this would make it yummy again. I will have to make them when someone else is going to be here so that I don't eat them all myself 🙂

    Sara — April 6, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    Does it matter when you put the cream in the cookies? Like should I wait until right before I'm taking them some where or I can the night before?

  50. #
    KatrinasKitchen — April 7, 2012 at 12:17 am

    I didn't try the mini so I can't be sure. I would start with 1 Tablespoon of dough fort about 9 minutes then adjust as necessary. Don't forget to grease your pan well! Have fun!

  51. #
    KatrinasKitchen — April 7, 2012 at 12:20 am

    I filled them right before I served them but we had leftovers and my husband ate them the next day too. So I would say either way is fine. Have fun!

    One thing I learned while making these is that doubling the recipe is not a good idea if all you have is a hand mixer. The cream filling was so thick that the mixer could not handle the amount. Other than that, they were awesome!

    MINI VERSION – I made a mini version of these last night and they are a huge hit! The smaller size makes the sweetness factor a little easier to handle. I used prepared cookie dough, the kind already cut into pieces. I used one piece per cookie. The bake time was about 12 minutes. I followed the same recipe for the filling, but next time I would probably only make 2/3 of it. I had about a cup leftover after filling. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Christine — May 31, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    LUVVVV this site , as a sweet freak who admires clever and delish; BUT!
    I’ve read of recent studies ( researched it hoping to disprove) that found people who eat over 6 tsp. of added sugar, based on a 2000 calorie diet, have a 38% chance of having a heart attack. Now I’m past 40, LUVVVV my sweets and need help to eat cookies and still live to see my grandchildren…
    And MAKE cookies with them.
