Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies

One of my favourite Easter treats is the Cadbury Creme Egg. They're a favourite for a lot of people since they're incredibly sweet and will satisfy any sweet tooth. Every year we head to McDonald's for a Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry which is so yummy.


This year I decided to try making a Cadbury Creme Egg brownie for dessert. I looked at multiple recipes online that people used for Creme Egg cakes, cheesecakes and other treats. I ended up mixing and matching different things.

So my bottom layer was a boxed brownie mix. I let it cool completely before adding the next layer; homemade vanilla buttercream. From here I put the pan in the freezer.


I made up the yellow 'yolk' mixture next. This was made with a combination of icing sugar, corn syrup, yellow food colouring, and a bit of water. It honestly looked like egg yolk once I found the consistency I was looking for.


I poured the yellow yolk right on top of the buttercream and put it back in the freezer to harden up.

So far I'm loving the look.

This next step is where I'm not happy with how I did things. Initially I thought about melting chocolate chips to pour on top of the yellow layer. But I was lazy and decided on chocolate frosting. Well, the frosting and yellow mixed. It wasn't pretty. However, it still tasted amazing.


Once we cut into it later that night, it definitely came out the way I hoped. The 'yolk' oozed out and it was incredibly sweet.


I'd definitely try making these again, but more than likely with a hard chocolate shell on top to hopefully avoid mixing the chocolate with the yellow layer.

I hope you had a great Easter weekend!

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.


I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
