Swirls of chocolate, vanilla and Creme Egg flavour ice cream, topped with even more Creme Eggs - this is an Easter dream.

This Creme Egg ice cream is quick and simple to make. You don't need an ice cream maker, or any specialist equipment. You simple whisk it up and freeze overnight until you're ready to serve it. To show you just how easy it is, watch our step-by-step video - you really can't go wrong. To make it into a really decadent Easter treat, we've serve it up inside a half of a chocolate egg. Then you just need to add your favourite sauces, whipped cream and any extra Creme Eggs you can handle.


  • 100g milk chocolate
  • 800ml double cream
  • 400g condensed milk
  • 2tsp vanilla flavouring
  • A few drops of orange food colouring
  • 6 Creme Eggs
  • 80g Mini Creme Eggs

To decorate:

  • 8 x Easter egg halves
  • Mini Eggs
  • Mini Creme Eggs
  • Whipped cream
  • Chocolate and caramel topping sauce




  1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or in bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. Once melted, set aside to cool slightly.
  2. In a large bowl, whip the double cream until it forms soft peaks, then gently fold in the condensed milk and vanilla flavouring. Separate this mixture into three smaller bowls.
  3. In one bowl gently stir through the melted chocolate. In the second, add a few drops of orange food colouring, mixing until it looks like the same colour as the ‘yolk’ of your Creme Eggs. Chop three cream eggs into small pieces and add these to the third bowl, mixing well.
  4. Take a freezer-proof roasting tray or tupperware contain. Spoon large dollops of the three mixtures randomly into the tray. Swirl all three mixtures together to you get a marbled effect. Don't mix them too vigorously or you will lose the marbling effect.
  5. Top with halved large and Mini Creme Eggs and place in the freezer for at least six hours.
  6. Serve in halved Easter eggs instead of bowls and top with Mini Eggs, Mini Creme Eggs, whipped cream and topping sauces.

Top tips for making this Creme Egg ice cream

Make sure the melted chocolate is cool before adding it to the whipped cream mixture - if it's too warm it will cause the cream to flatten and you'll get a less smooth result in the chocolate ice cream swirls.

Note this recipe requires condensed milk not evaporated milk. Condensed milk is thicker and sweeter and will create the right texture in the finished ice cream.
