Here’s our recipe and method for making Homemade Cadbury Creme Egg Ice Cream:

Ingredients:Homemade Cadbury Egg Ice Cream Recipe image 7 cadbury cream egg ice cream frosted fusions

  • 300ml double cream
  • 300ml whole milk
  • 150g Cadbury Creme Eggs (about 4-5 eggs), chopped into small pieces
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional: additional chopped Cadbury Creme Eggs for topping


  • In a saucepan, heat the double cream and whole milk over medium heat until it just begins to simmer. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and caster sugar until pale and creamy.
  • Slowly pour the warm cream mixture into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly to combine.
  • Return the mixture to the saucepan and place it over low heat. Cook gently, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens slightly and coats the back of a spoon. Be careful not to let it boil.
  • Once thickened, remove the saucepan from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight until thoroughly chilled.
  • Once chilled, transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions until it reaches a soft-serve consistency.
  • Add the chopped Cadbury Creme Eggs to the ice cream during the last few minutes of churning, allowing them to mix evenly throughout.
  • Transfer the churned ice cream to a freezer-safe container and freeze for an additional 4 hours or until firm.
  • Serve the Homemade Cadbury Creme Egg Ice Cream scooped into bowls or cones, topped with additional chopped Cadbury Creme Eggs if desired.

NB: If you don’t own an ice cream maker, you can still make this recipe, you simply pour the mixture into a freezer-safe container and freeze. Every 30 minutes, stir the mixture vigorously with a fork to break up ice crystals, repeating this process for about 3-4 hours or until the ice cream is firm.
