Eamonn’s Deep Fried Cadbury Creme Eggs

One of my favorite things about Easter is Cadbury Creme Eggs.  I know that many people think that they are weird and gross, and I really do not want to know what makes that creme filling, but I love them.  And this year, I got to experience them in a whole new day…Deep fried.

Eamonn’s A Dublin Chipper in Old Town has a whole list of “deep fried confectioneries” on its menu — Milky Ways, Snickers, Mars, bananas and classic dough — and for Easter it has added my favorite seasonal treat.  So when I happened to be in Old Town for a friend’s birthday brunch last weekend, I decided to stop in after our manicures. 

Because of how much liquidy-creme is already in the center, they are a bit on the messy side, so bite in carefully.  They are rolled in dough, fried and then topped with cinnamon and sugar, so they have an extra crunch on the outside that perfectly compliments the soft melted chocolate on the inside.  Disgustingly delicious…I was incredibly tempted to go back for a second one.

  1. This looks amazing. There’s a place in Brooklyn that will deep fry pretty much anything you want. I’m tempted to request this one!

  2. OMG. I loved reading this post! I, too, love Cadbury Eggs and feel a little freakish at times because a lot of people don’t “get” them. I can’t believe I missed out on Eamonn’s deep fried cinnamon sugary amazingness…I am SO sad, especially considering I live in Old Town :( I just called to see if they had any left and the guy who answered told me they sold out before Easter Sunday. I’m marking my calendar for next year!!! What a fun post, I loved seeing the video too!
