Can you imagine the surprise when your family bites into one of these cupcakes? A delicious moist cupcake that hides a Cadbury Caramel egg inside. Everyone will wonder how the chocolate egg didn’t melt. The oohs and ahhs are going to put a huge smile on your face.

Ingredients

  • Devil’s Food cake – Using a cake mix makes it easier to make these cupcakes. In addition to the cake mix, you want the ingredients needed to make the cake. you can also skip the box mix and make the chocolate cake from scratch. You will be making 10 cupcakes with this recipe, but you will have leftover cake batter. You can actually make 15-20 cupcakes.
  • Frosting– we always use our 5-minute frosting recipe that always gets wonderful ratings, but you can use any chocolate frosting that you prefer.
  • Cadbury Caramel Eggs- You will want to have these Cadbury Caramel Eggs in the freezer. This helps the eggs from melting during the baking process.
  • Mini Cadbury Caramel Eggs
  • Sprinkles

How to Make Cadbury Egg Cupcakes

Preheat the oven and get a cupcake pan ready.

chocolate cupcake batter

Mix together the ingredients for the cake and using a scoop, divide the batter into the cupcake liners.

Place one unwrapped, frozen cupcake in the center of each cupcake liner.

Bake the cupcakes for 15-18 minutes. The cupcakes are done when you stick a toothpick into the sides of the cupcake and it comes out clean. Do not go into the center of the cupcake because this will piece the egg.

Let the cupcakes cool for 5 minutes in the pan before moving the cupcakes to a wire cooling rack.

Place the frosting into a piping bag. Snip the end and then place all the bags into a large bag that is fitted with an open star tip.

Start in the middles of each cupcake and move to the outsides and then back to the center to create a peak.

Place one of the mini Cadbury Caramel Egg into the peak of the cupcake.

Decorate with the sprinkles.

What’s the Best Caramel for Inside this Cupcake?

I love using the Cadbury Caramel Eggs in these cupcakes. If you can not find them in your area, you can use the traditional Cadbury Eggs for a different flavor or you can use another chocolate covered caramel candy like Rolos.

Can These Cadbury Cupcakes Be Frozen?

If you have extra Cadbury Cupcakes, you can freeze them. Because of the frosting on top, I like to freeze the cupcakes on a plate before wrapping them. This lets the frosting freezer and then it will not stick to the plastic wrap. Be sure to remove the plastic wrapping before letting the cupcakes thaw otherwise the frosting will stick to the plastic anyway.
