Creme Egg Scotch Eggs


Just in case, there isn't enough Easter sweetness around for you at the moment, let me go ahead and add some more.

Creme Egg scotch eggs are an idea Paul and I came up with a couple of weeks ago when thinking of Easter treats to make. I suggested to scotch egg idea, but to cover them with salted crisps was all Paul...and it's a bloody good idea, let me tell you! They're very simple to make, and if you buy the brownies, instead of making them, then it's a no bake recipe too. If you are buying the brownies, make sure they are dense gooey ones, the dry cakey ones wont hold together the way you need them to. I used my brownie recipe -without the white chocolate, it's my go-to, and give's you the best gooey brownies so it's perfect for this. 

This isn't a very precise recipe, it will really depend on how much of your ingredients you use to make each scotch egg. With my brownie recipe, I had enough for 3 full Creme Egg size and 4 mini egg size. The mini eggs ended up with a lot more brownie around them, but who's going to complain about that? 


Plain chocolate brownie (my recipe's here)
Creme Eggs (or others you prefer)
Ready salted crisps -crushed
50g dark chocolate -melted

:a pastry brush is also really helpful for spreading on the dark chocolate.

- Crumble the brownie into a bowl so you have lots of small bits to work with. Add the crushed up crisps to another bowl.

- Take a handful of brownie mix, and start to squish it together with your hands until it's a dough you can mold. Flatten it out a little, place a Creme Eggs in the center, and start to shape it around the egg.

- Add more brownie as you go, if you need to, then shape and roll in your hands until you have a ball.

- Brush the brownie ball with dark chocolate, this is just to help the crisps stick.

- When covered in a thin layer of melted chocolate, roll in the crushed up crisps. Press them with your hands gently to make sure they stick. 


As I've said before, I'm not a fan of Creme Eggs. So for my scotch eggs, I used Galaxy Caramel eggs, and they were sooo good! I think one made with the Lindt Lindor eggs would be pretty good too. As well as being very tasty, these little scotch eggs are such a fun treat for Easter, they would make lovely gifts or, a fun dessert if you're having Easter lunch.
