Watch It!

  • In a stand mixer beat cream cheese and butter together. You can also totally use a hand mixer and bowl.


  • Add brown sugar, confectioner's sugar, and vanilla until well combined.


  • Stir in Cadbury Mini Eggs candies with a spatula.


  • Transport the dip into your serving dish- you can use a fun spring pastel bowl, a beautiful glass serving dish or even  a hollow chocolate bunny! But if you’re bringing this somewhere- tupperware is absolutely a valid choice. No judgment! Just package up all your dippables separately and assemble when you get there.

    Decorate the top of your dip with more mini eggs- try a mix of whole and crushed eggs for a dynamic design.


  • Store in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.

  • Assemble your dippable treats around the dip- you can go fancy or rustic. Honestly, this dip is so good, it really doesn’t matter what it looks like.

     

  • And that’s it. You’re welcome. Enjoy your new title as the best dessert maker of all time! Or at least of this year’s Easter festivities. Take that, bunny.
