Cadbury Irish Creme Egg

To help celebrate Easter at Katharine’s Easter Champagne Brunch party this weekend, I concocted these little Cadbury Creme Egg inspired jello shots. Jello jiggler style chocolate eggs cut from a tiny egg shaped cookie cutter are spiked with a generous amount of Irish Cream and topped with a sweetened condensed milk yoke. These super fun little treats are sure to be a big hit. Have a Happy Easter!

Egg layer:

2 tablespoons (2 envelopes) of unflavored gelatin powder
2 cups milk
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup Irish cream liqueur

In a saucepan, sprinkle gelatin evenly over milk and allow the gelatin to absorb the milk for two minutes. Over medium heat, whisk together milk and gelatin followed by the cocoa and sugar. Bring just to a boil and remove from heat and continue string until it begins to cool. Allow to cool to room temperature and stir in the Irish cream. Pour into a pan (I used a 9 x 13 inch baking pan) so the mixture is 1/2 inch deep. Refrigerate overnight until firm.

Dip the pan in warm water for 15 seconds to loosen the gelatin from the pan. Use a mini egg shaped cookie cuter (mine is 1 1/2 inches top to bottom) to cut the eggs. Gently lift onto a plate or cookie sheet.

White/Yoke layer:

1 tablespoon (1 envelope) of unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
3/4 cup boiling water
3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
yellow food dye

In a bowl, sprinkle unflavored gelatin over the cold water and allow the gelatin to absorb the water for two minutes. Stir in the boiling water until gelatin is fully dissolved. Stir in sweetened condensed milk until the mixture is smooth. Pour into a pan (I used a 9 inch diameter cake pan) until the mixture is 1/8 of an inch deep. Refrigerate overnight until firm. (You may have some extra mixture, just refrigerate that and have it as a snack later.)

Dip the pan in warm water for 15 seconds to loosen the gelatin from the pan. Use a tiny round cookie cuter (I made one from stiff plastic and tape- its 3/4 of an inch in diameter) to cut the egg whites. Gently place them on top of the chocolate eggs.

Mix a couple of drops of yellow food dye with a few drips of water and, using a tiny paint brush, paint the yoke in the center of each egg white. Refrigerate to let the yellow dye dry and serve. Makes about 48 jello shots.
