About Cadbury Creme Egg Dip
Not gonna lie, I’m very excited about this recipe, and it’s probably the same reason that brought you here:
I’m absolutely obsessed with Cadbury Creme Eggs. No, not even obsessed – that’s far too mild a term. I am happily addicted to these delicious little candies and have been since I was a kid.
And this Cadbury Creme Egg Dip? It’s everything I love about the candies and more.
Now, I can’t take full credit for this genius idea. Regular readers already know what I sucker I am for dessert dips, so the foundation was already there, but my dear friend Olivia is the one that suggested that creme eggs were in dire need of the dessert dip treatment.
This dip is made completely from scratch, so you can enjoy Cadbury’s iconic taste even in the middle of summer or winter.
If you use mini chocolate bars for dipping (which I highly recommend) the taste is spot on for classic the creme eggs.
But be warned: the dip is sticky and gooey, just like the candy eggs it pays homage to, though the whipped cream goes a long way in softening it up for easy dipping.
What to serve with dessert dip?
When serving this creme egg dip, I like to use little bars of chocolate, since it’s the best match if you’re trying to capture the same taste as the candy.
However, that doesn’t mean you have to serve it with chocolate. There are plenty of other options I’ve found work great with most dessert dips.
Below are a few of my favorites.
- Nilla Wafers
- Sugar Cookies
- Graham Crackers
- Cubes of pound cake
- Golden Oreos
- Ladyfinger cookies
- Gingersnap Cookies
- Crumbled waffle cones
- Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
This list could go on and on. If you find a new combination for dipping, I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
Can you make this dip in advance?
Yes, you can make this in advance, but it may be tricky. What I recommend:
- Prepare the dip as instructed, but store the white and orange portions of the dip in separate sealed containers in the refrigerator.
- If at all possible, try to bring a hand mixer with you (or have access to one where you’re serving the dip). This is just a precaution in case any of the dip separates and needs a quick 1-2 minute whip to get everything incorporated and smooth again.
- If the dip feels very firm and too hard to scoop, let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
- Assemble the two portions of dip and serve!
How long can you leave out a dessert dip?
Whenever you serve a dip for your guests to enjoy, you should always keep track of how long it sits at room temperature. Perishable items can be tricky and this recipe does include butter and Cool Whip.
For most foods, the general rule of thumb is that a perishable item should not be in the “danger zone” for more than two hours. And by “danger zone”, this is usually at or just above room temperature, which is how this dip will be served.
As the party goes on, you can move your dip back to the refrigerator once you get past the two-hour mark. If your guests still want more dip, let it chill for at least 30 minutes before bringing it back out again.

Cadbury Creme Egg Dip
If you're a fan of Cadbury Creme Eggs then this dip is a must-make for spring! Use your favorite holiday chocolate (or even cookies or pretzels) for dipping.
Drop mixer speed to low and slowly scoop in powdered sugar, about 1/2 cup at a time, until sugar is incorporated and mixture is thick.
Turn off mixture and add Cool Whip to bowl, then resume mixing at low speed until smooth, about 3-4 minutes. Stop mixer and use a spatula to thoroughly scrape around the sides, then beat again for another 3-4 minutes. If needed, repeat with scraping and mixing until the sticky sugar mix is completely combined with the cool whip.
Remove about 1/4 of the dip and place in a small serving bowl. Mix in orange food coloring, 1 drop at a time, until desired color is reached. For mine, I used 4 drops of gel food coloring. When finished, set bowl nearby.
Scoop the remaining dip into a serving bowl of your choice. Make a small well in the top where the orange dip will go.
Spoon orange dip into the well you created in the white dip.
Serve dip immediately with milk or dark chocolate candy bars for dipping.
