It’s that time of year EGG-ain. Get ready to unwrap your Creme Eggs!

Zoe | March 14, 2022

We’ve created a special chocolatey drink recipe that you can make easily at work for you and your colleagues to enjoy.

Cadbury Creme Eggs

The very first Cadbury Creme Egg first appeared in 1971. It has since soared in popularity to where it has gained somewhat of an iconic status in the confectionery aisle. Over 500 million Creme Eggs are made every year with about two-thirds of that number being enjoyed in the UK (and many of those being enjoyed at FreshGround HQ!).

The Creme Egg is the best-selling confectionery item between New Year’s Day and Easter in the UK. It has a brand value of approximately £55 million. Chocolate eggs make up 10% of annual chocolate spending and Brits spend on average a staggering £299 million on egg chocolate every year.

A nation of chocoholics, the UK is the fourth biggest consumer of chocolate in the world, ranked just behind Switzerland, Germany, and Austria.

So to celebrate our love of all things chocolate and our favourite chocolatey treat, the Creme Egg, we’ve created a very special drinks recipe to enjoy at work. Here’s what you’ll need…

Creme Egg Hot Chocolate Recipe

creme egg hot chocolate in glass mug


· Hot chocolate dispensed from your coffee machine (or Instant Cadburys Hot Chocolate Sachets)
· Shot of caramel syrup
· Shot of vanilla syrup
· Squirty Cream
· Creme Egg


Grab your favourite mug and head to the office coffee machine and simply select the ‘hot chocolate’ option. If you don’t have this option on your coffee machine at work, don’t panic! Simply whip up your own hot chocolate in a jiffy using one of Cadbury Hot Chocolate Sachets.
Add a shot of caramel and vanilla syrup and give it a quick stir. Now, time to get indulgent and show your hot drink a little love and top it off with some squirty cream.
Naturally, this wouldn’t be called a ‘Creme Egg Hot Chocolate’ if the recipe didn’t include an actual creme egg. So carefully unwrap and simply cut in half lengthways, then place on top of your fabulous drink. You can finish with a few chocolate sprinkles to make it extra-Instagrammable and the envy of the office!
