Print Recipe


  • 300 g shortbread biscuits blitzed
  • 120 g unsalted butter melted
  • 397 g tin of condensed milk
  • 100 g light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 100 g unsalted butter
  • 6 Cadbury's Creme Eggs sliced in half
  • 300 g Cadbury's milk chocolate melted


  • In a food processor, blitz 300g of shortbread biscuits. You can also do this by hand using a rolling pin.
  • Add 120g unsalted melted butter and mix to combine.
  • Pour the biscuit mixture into a lined 20cm square tin. Refrigerate until needed.
  • Add a 397g tin of condensed milk, 100g light brown sugar, 2 tbsp golden syrup and 100g of butter to a medium size saucepan.
  • Heat for around 5 minutes until a thick caramel sauce forms. Remember you need to stir the sauce constantly to ensure it doesn’t burn or crystalise.
  • Pour the caramel sauce over the biscuit base and refrigerate until completely set (around 30 minutes.)
  • Once the caramel has set, cut 6 Creme Eggs in half and place them on top of the Caramel base in rows of 3.
  • Place a bowl over a saucepan of hot water and add 300g of Cadbury's milk chocolate to the bowl.
  • When the chocolate has melted pour it over the top of the Creme Eggs. Refrigerate until the chocolate has set.
  • Once set, take the Creme Egg Caramel Shortbread out of the fridge and slice it into pieces using a sharp knife. Use the Creme Eggs to guide you.
