cups vanilla bean ice cream, slightly softened and divided
teaspoon Betty Crocker™ orange gel food color
tablespoons chocolate chips, melted
cup dark chocolate shavings (more for garnish, if desired)
cup white chocolate liqueur
(2 oz) shot vanilla vodka
PEEPS® brand chocolate dipped marshmallow chicks, yellow candies
CADBURY™ Crème Egg candies
PREPARE 1 HOUR AHEAD: Mix 1/3 cup of softened vanilla bean ice cream with 1 teaspoon Betty Crocker™ gel food coloring. Scoop with a small ice cream scoop into little balls, place on a parchment-lined plate. Freeze for 1 hour or until ready to serve – these are the yolks for the cocktail.
Dip the rims of 2 martini glasses into the melted chocolate chips. Gently press the dark chocolate shavings along the rim. Allow to cool and set.
To prepare the cocktail: Place 1 cup of slightly softened vanilla bean ice cream, white chocolate liqueur and vanilla vodka in blender. Blend until smooth. Place the prepared frozen orange yolks in the bottom of each rimmed martini glass. Top with the blended ice cream cocktail mixture. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate shavings. Top each with a Peeps™ marshmallow candy, and serve with a Cadbury™ Creme Egg candy on the side. Enjoy!
More About This Recipe
- This liquid refreshment is so sweet, you can serve it as dessert.We saw a Cadbury™ Egg Cocktail out there and decided to swing our own version of it – with creamy liqueurs, ice cream, and lots of chocolate shavings!The first time I ever had a Cadbury™ crème egg was at the Hooper Country Store, a little gas station on the corner of our tiny town. My mother had run in to grab a pack of gum, and she came out with a single sapphire-blue egg, gleaming with all the magnificence of tinted foil.She twisted around in the front seat so she could face me, implored me to unwrap it, then watched with delight as I discovered not only a chocolate egg inside—but flavored crème hidden behind a bite. White and yellow—just like a yolk! I was sure she’d discovered some marvelous magic.Turns out, there were 10 good years of my life without Cadbury Crème eggs, and I’m determined to make up for lost time!Whenever those chocolaty morsels of goodness make their appearance at Easter, I always buy a few—some to sneak into my mouth at midnight, and a lot to share with my tots.This year, I’m doing something different with my Cadbury™ crème routine—I’m serving the flavors up as sweet and creamy cocktails for a girls night party. And I can’t wait!We test-ran this recipe today, and it’s a total keeper. With its own little ball of creamy “yolk” sitting at the bottom of the martini glass, a rich layer of white-chocolate and liqueur-spiked cream, and a rim of gorgeous shaved chocolate, I wonder why my mama never introduced me to this drink earlier… but I’m feeling far too tipsy to care. Because it’s in my life now, and that’s all that matters.Easy tip: Shave yourself some chocolate for the rimming. I use a chocolate bar and vegetable peeler to get pro-looking shavings. Added bonus: It’s so easy! You've got to add chocolate on top (like the shell of the creme egg), and of course this drink screams for a Peeps™ chick, so do it.Serve with a creme egg or two, and you've got a memorable treat!
