How to make the tasty treats

Taking a Cadbury Creme Egg, Nate wraps it in croissant pastry, before turning it all into a little dough ball. He then applies an egg wash and in just eight minutes cooks a tasty, gooey, chocolatey ball of Easter goodness.

It doesn't just work with Cream Eggs either, you can add any flavoured chocolate you like. "The caramel egg version is amazing," one home cook confirmed. "I also tried chocolate orange and Bueno and they’re all unreal."

If you're planning on making these over Easter, you might find it a little hard to get your hands on the Jus-Rol Croissant pastry used in the video, so Aussie connoisseurs can try using puff pastry instead.
