The Secret Starbucks Menu Has a Cadbury Creme Egg Frappuccino and We’re Here For It

Treat Yourself To New Cadbury Chocolate-Covered Oreos (Photos)

Oreos and Cadbury have teamed up for a smooth, crunchy treat you’ll want to devour as soon as you see it: Oreo cookies enrobed in creamy Cadbury milk chocolate.

Needless to say, social media users are quite pleased.

The catch? At the moment, Cadbury Coated Oreos are only available in Australia, according to PopSugar. If you live in the States, you’ll have to live vicariously through those Down Under with photos of the double-chocolate dessert. It’s cruel and unjust, but luckily there are ways to satisfy your craving for extra-indulgent chocolate sandwich cookies.

You could make your own Cadbury Coated Oreo dupes, so long as you melt your own Cadbury milk chocolate bars and dip Oreos, fondue-style, into the silky liquid. Even better, you can add custom designs with melted white chocolate or colorful icing. Here’s how to achieve perfect chocolate-dipped Oreos at home.

Thankfully, you are also free to order other ultra-chocolaty Oreo goods online, as this isn’t the first time Oreos and chocolate brands have created beautiful things together.

There’s the Milka Oreo Big Crunch Chocolate Candy Bar, available here. Crunchy Oreos are enrobed in luscious vanilla cream, then encased in a layer of milk chocolate.

Then there are Oreo Cadbury Creme Eggs, which are, you guessed it, familiar milk-chocolate eggs containing a true treasure: velvety cookies and cream filling. Snag a mini version here.

There is also the truly insane Cadbury Dairy Milk Egg ‘n’ Spoon with Oreo. The sugary contents are intended to be devoured with an included spoon until the consumer is left with a sweet egg to be eaten then or later. Order them immediately here

More of a baker than a buyer? You’ve got plenty of homemade, Oreo-rich dessert options, like our frozen Oreo peanut butter pie, featuring an Oreo crust with a peanut butter cream cheese filling that is sinfully bursting with peanut butter cups and chocolate chips. It’s chilled until set and finished with as much peanut butter as you dare to drizzle.

You can also get a head start on warming up for winter with our gooey Oreo lava cake. It’s made extra mouthwatering with Oreo pudding and an entire cup of chocolate chips.

We’re Swooning Over Reese’s Peanut Butter Creme Eggs!

category:

By Cooking Panda

Get ready, people, because the holiday season is officially upon us once again, which means that all of your favorite confectionery and sweets companies are about to pump out some major new treats to help celebrate Easter.

If you’re somebody who enjoys a chocolate treat or five each April — in the spirit of the holiday, of course — then you’ll probably be pleased to know that Reese’s is giving its signature chocolate-and-peanut-butter combination an Easter-time facelift.

Reese’s has released its new Reese’s Peanut Butter Creme Egg, which is a three-dimensional egg filled with your favorite Reese’s peanut butter, enrobed in creamy milk chocolate. Basically, if you can’t celebrate Easter without indulging in a bite of the classic Cadbury Egg, but are secretly craving something a little more peanut buttery, this is the treat for you.

The new Reese’s creme eggs are seasonally dressed in Easter packaging and individually wrapped. The reese’s creme egg calories are so moderate having approximately 180 calories per egg, which means you can totally fit one or two into your day with no harm done, so long as you remember to practice healthy habits and indulge in moderation!

The creme eggs are being sold at Walmart, and are about $3.82 for 1.2 ounces, or 5 eggs, according to the Walmart website. Because the Reese’s Peanut Butter Creme Eggs are temperature-sensitive, Walmart recommends you spring for Expedited Shipping or Rush Shipping if you don’t pick your goodies up in store, just to make sure they don’t melt in transit to your Easter basket.

Happy snacking!

Cadbury Is Bringing Peanut Butter And Mint Oreo Bars

category:

By Cooking Panda

Peanut butter and mint Oreo chocolate bars? Sign me up! Cadbury and Oreo seem to be learning that a partnership between the two of them is just what this world needed.

Cosmopolitan reports that the Oreo Mint and Oreo Peanut Butter flavors are available now in the U.K. “We are delighted to add these two sumptuous new flavors to the classic Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo, giving chocolate lovers even more ways to enjoy their favorite treat,” the brand manager at Mondelez said of the new candy flavors.

“Tasty and irresistible, the peanut butter variant will appeal to those who love the current peanut butter trend, while the delicious mint flavor will no doubt delight those who love a classic combination.”

Metro UK was so excited to learn about this new flavor combo that they decided to do a taste-test of both varieties. The first they tried was the Oreo Mint chocolate bar. The consensus on that bar was that it was like a “much-improved Aero,” the holes in which were apparently too distracting. I haven’t had one, so I wouldn’t know. The Oreo Peanut Butter bar was reportedly “just peanut-y enough.” All in all, the unanimous vote was of approval from the news team!

Both bars are made with Cadbury chocolate (of course) and feature either a peanut butter, or mint filling — depending on which you’re opting for — with chunks of chocolate Oreo cookie mixed in.

The sad news, which comes from Refinery29, is that the new chocolate bars are only available in the U.K. We won’t be seeing them in the U.S. until further notice. Refinery29 does maintain, however, that we shouldn’t lose hope. Since it’s happened in the past that consumer demand has brought new flavors into the U.S., we may not be out of line in hoping it happens again.

Until that day, we can satisfy ourselves with the Oreo Eggs that we do have, sort of a consolation prize (in my opinion) for not having the Cadbury Oreo Egg here, and probably just as good. Let’s just stock up on those and bide our time.

Cadbury’s Mini Cookies ‘N Cream Eggs Look Awesome

category:

By Cooking Panda

Remember in January, when we discussed the new Oreo Cadbury Creme Eggs? We were a little bummed that those were only available in Canada and the U.K., but we haven’t had to be bummed for long.

As it turns out, Cadbury has come up with a cookies ‘n cream indulgence for the U.S., too, and it’s sold exclusively at Target. Popsugar reports that the new Chocolate Crunch and Creme Mini Cadbury Eggs are made with ‘”white candy and cookies with a crisp sugar shell.”‘ Judging by the image below from Candy Hunting on Instagram, they’ll be snackable sizes of crunchy cookies and cream, Cadbury style.

They can also be described as cookies and cream Cadbury mini eggs, This is mini version of those Oreo Cadbury Creme Eggs we just mentioned. If you’ve been dying to try those, you might get just what you want out of these instead. They’re just a cute mini version!

However, if this doesn’t quite satisfy your craving, you’re in even more luck. According to Thrillist, Oreo has come up with its own version of the Oreo Cadbury Creme Eggs for the U.S. The eggs aren’t made with Cadbury, so it’s not Cadbury chocolate, but I guess Oreo felt the need to grant us our wish anyway. An Oreo spokesperson told Thrillist that the new egg would be called the Oreo Egg, and stressed that Cadbury would not be involved.

I guess it sounds like we’re not getting the Oreo Cadbury Creme Eggs in the U.S., but I do feel satisfied that what we are getting is so close, it’s probably just as good. Who knows how to create a cookies and cream filling better than Oreo, anyhow? Not all chocolate is created equal, of course, but I have a feeling these Oreo Eggs with the non-Cadbury chocolate will be strikingly similar in quality. I look forward to seeing them on shelves (which should already be happening!).

Altogether, we now have two very tempting spring candies to look forward to as the weather warms up. Chocolate Crunch and Creme Mini Cadbury Eggs and Oreo Eggs are a sure sign that this spring will be oh so sweet.

Here’s How To Make A Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg (Photo)

category:

By Cooking Panda

Even though Easter is still quite a ways away, shops in the U.K. are already stocking the shelves with a popular seasonal treat — Cadbury Creme Eggs.

For those of you who don’t know (and we are so, so, sorry for you), a Cadbury Creme Egg is a chocolate confection that consists of a luscious, thick chocolate shell in the shape of, you guessed it, an egg.

Then stuffed inside of the chocolate shell is a mound of gooey, white and yellow fondant filling, which mimics the color scheme of a standard chicken’s egg quite well.

The Cadbury Creme Egg is totally calorific and absolutely addicting — the different textures and the sugar rush make it one of our favorite rare treats.

However, the folks over at Omm Nomm have found a way to elevate the already indulgent treat into something greater and even more calorie-ridden.

Intrigued?

Introducing the Creme Scotch Eggs:

The recipe, created by Daniel Russell, is essentially just a Cadbury Creme Egg surrounded by chocolate cake and buttercream — but that’s not all. Then, the entire thing is totally smothered in grated and melted chocolate.

Wow!

Check out the recipe for the dish below, courtesy of Omm Nomm:

Ingredients:

  • 6 Cadbury Creme eggs
  • 10.5 ounces milk chocolate

Cake mixture:

  • 1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) softened unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup caster (superfine) sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 1/2 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

Buttercream:

  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) softened unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder

Method:

Preheat your oven to 320 degrees Fahrenheit and also grease or line an 8-inch cake tin.

Begin by creaming your butter and sugar, either by hand with a whisk or with a whisking appliance.

Once the texture seems light and airy enough, gradually add the rest of your ingredients, stirring continuously. Remember — and this is important — to sift both your flour and cocoa powder. You don’t want clumps! Feel free to add a splash of milk if your batter seems too thick.

Pour your mixture into your cake tin, spreading evenly. Do not overfill — otherwise your batter will rise too high and make a mess! Place on the middle rack of your oven and bake for 25 minutes. You can stick a toothpick in to see if it’s done; it should be firm and springy. Let cool.

Once cooled, remove cake from the tin. Crumble it up into a food processor until it looks like breadcrumbs. Add the remainder of your softened butter, icing sugar and cocoa, mixing together until a firm dough is formed. 

Encase each creme egg in handfuls of the dough; roll them into fist-sized balls, and then place each encased egg onto a plate covered with baking paper. Chill them in the fridge.

Grate about one-third (3.5 ounces) of the chocolate into a bowl or plate while the creme eggs are cooling, and ensure that the entire surface is covered and there is enough space to roll your eggs. Melt the remaining chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water until all lumps of chocolate have melted.

Once chilled and firm, take your dough balls and dip them into the chocolate mixture. Make sure all of the egg is covered, and then roll it through the grated chocolate. Place all eggs back onto your cooling tray and then into the fridge to chill for another 10 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!

You Can Now Apply To Get Paid To Taste-Test Chocolate!

category:

By Cooking Panda

Everybody stop what you’re doing and listen up: We have the sweetest news ever to share!

It turns out that Mondelez International is clearly not only in the chocolate business — it is also in the business of making our gosh dang dreams come true, because it is offering up a position on its team for a professional chocolate taster.

That’s right. If you’ve ever bitten into a Cadbury, Oreo, Prince or Milks bar and fallen instantly in love with the lush, chocolatey profiles of those candies — and let’s face it, who among us hasn’t? — then you probably don’t want to pass up the opportunity to snack on those bad boys for a freaking living. And now one lucky person can!

The position is part-time, according to the Linked In posting, and will have the lucky employee working 7.5 hours a week Tuesday-Thursday. Just check out what qualifications Mondelez International requires of its pick:

  • A passion for confectionary and taste buds for detection
  • Honesty when it comes to giving an opinion
  • Eager to try new inventive products
  • A communicative personality to build great relationships with your panel
  • A firm grasp of the English Language

Unfortunately, we have a bad feeling that we’re ineligible for the position, as one of the key responsibilities Mondelez asks of its future employee is to “use a clearly defined vocabulary to describe products and aid in the discrimination between products.” We can already foresee ourselves biting into various chocolates and simply losing all of our words as we just drool in pleasure.

If you are a cocoa lover and more eloquent than we know ourselves to be, don’t hesitate! Mondelez International is taking applications now and we’re sure it’s going to be a very competitive process, especially considering that Mondelez offers, according to its Linked In, “financial rewards and resources, including bonus scheme, contributory pension, life assurance, generous holiday allowance and a flexible benefits program.”

Apply here for the “Chocolate and Cocoa Beverage Taster” position, and good luck!

Oreo Cadbury Creme Eggs Exist, And We Need Them Now (Photos)

category:

By Cooking Panda

Sure, we’re in the dead of winter, but why can’t we start planning for beautiful spring? Part of spring planning always involves getting into the Cadbury Egg craze. This year, let’s beg Oreo for the Oreo Cadbury Creme egg with which Canada and the U.K. have been blessed.

Is it just me, or does it seem like Canada and the U.K. get all the best stuff? I’m probably speaking from an especially jealous place right now, but just look at these eggs!

Popsugar reports that this irresistible candy blend consists of a chocolate shell with a white chocolate and Oreo center. Here, take a look at another picture so we can dream about it together:

Best thing that was ever made so good!!!!#oreocadbury #cadburyeggs #omg #chocolate

As if this isn’t enough, The Independent reports that there’s been a new release of a mini version of this amazing flavor combo. It’s called the Cadbury Dairy Milk Egg ‘n’ Spoon Oreo, and comes in a cute little purple egg carton. The egg is made with thick vanilla mousse and Oreo pieces, and somehow sounds even better than the ones mentioned above.

A spokesperson for Cadbury says, “We are always innovating our product ranges and there are lots of exciting things to come from the Cadbury brand this year and beyond.” Does this mean it’s safe for those of us who live in the U.S. to hope? I guess I’m doing so regardless.

“As part of our Easter range this year we have launched new Cadbury Dairy Milk Egg ‘n’ Spoon Oreo, which is available alongside our existing Oreo Easter products including the Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo Shell Egg and the Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo Easter Egg Sharing Bag,” the spokesperson added.

Even if I never get to try the mini Egg ‘n’ Spoon Oreo eggs, I still hope it comes with an actual mini spoon, like it shows on the package, because that is just too cute. Crack open the top and eat it like a soft-boiled egg. I would have so much fun with this.

In the meantime, we can satisfy ourselves with the Milka/Oreo candy bar combo that’s probably just as delicious and indulgent.

Cadbury Is Launching A Chocolate Pop-Up Spa In London

category:

By Cooking Panda

If you love chocolate so much, then why don’t you… bathe in it?

We all have our culinary vices. While some of us go for salty snacks to satisfy a craving, others will opt for a tart option, or even tuck into a savory meal. However, if you’re anything like me (and, apparently, the average citizen of the United Kingdom), when a craving hits, it’s usually for chocolate.

According to statistics compiled by Euromonitor and published by Statista in 2015, the United Kingdom is tied with Ireland for having the third highest rate of chocolate consumption per person than any other country. In fact, the average U.K. citizen reportedly consumed about 16.3 lbs of chocolate per year in 2015.

With those kinds of numbers, perhaps it’s no surprise that a lucky few U.K. citizens are being offered the chance to indulge in chocolate on a whole new level.

This May 5, beloved British confectionery company Cadbury is opening a pop-up chocolate spa on Bateman Street in London’s Soho district, in order to celebrate the launch of its new Dairy Milk Medley product.

“The Lounge is the ultimate pampering experience for Cadbury lovers as it communicates the joyful and luxurious experience that comes from tasting the delicious soft [center] and quality ingredients of Cadbury Dairy Milk Medley,” Cadbury told Metro.

According to YPlan, attendees will be offered a variety of treatments that are meant to replicate the experience of eating one of the new, decadent bars.

“With a choice of a head massage, hand massage, or luxury manicure, you’ll feel more pampered than a panda in a petting-zoo,” reads YPlan’s event description.

The 18+ lounge will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on May 5 only, and while the spa will be free to enter, those interested in attending the event are required to register for a ticket on a first-come-first-served basis through YPlan.

This is not the first time Cadbury has launched a pop-up to support one of their products. The Cadbury Dairy Milk Medley Lounge comes to London on the heels of their successful seven-week Creme Egg Cafe pop-up earlier this year, as documented by Event Magazine.

But don’t worry, latecomers and out-of-towners. If you’re unable to snag a ticket to the event, there’s no need to fret. The Cadbury Dairy Milk Medley bars have reportedly already hit the market, and are available in stores now.
