FANS of the fast food chain McDonald’s were recently struck with the upsetting news that seven of the brand’s favourites were going to be axed from the menu.
As part of the shake-up, McDonald’s made the decision to ditch several items, including crispy chicken burger, chilli cheese bites, the Big Tasty burger, as well as Creme Egg McFlurry.

Although these are heart-breaking news for many, fear not as the same treats can also be made in your kitchen with almost no effort – and if you still have chocolate eggs left over from Easter, then this recipe is a must.
According to the whizz, there is only a short list of ingredients to grab from the store – four cups of vanilla ice cream, two tablespoons of double cream and four Cadburry Creme Eggs (plus, more if you fancy using them as a topping at the end).
Optionally, you can also use chocolate sauce, caramel sauce or even better – both (the more, the merrier, right?).

If you’re unsure which tube of vanilla ice cream to go for, the cooking pro ensures that ”any good quality vanilla ice cream would do well”.
For those who’ve made it so far without devouring the goods – well done – here are the steps to follow to whip up your homemade McDonald’s Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry copycat.
With the ingredients assembled, all you need to do is simply put them in a blender.

”I used my Ninja blender,” she revealed, adding that it will create that iconic McFlurry consistency.
Once the ingredients have been added to the blender, you need to pulse it around ten times – or until the sweet chocolate eggs and ice cream have fully incorporated together.
This should resemble something not quite a milkshake but also not just plain ice cream either – stop when you see the dessert is whipped and fluffy with flakes and small chunks of chocolate goodness.
The final step – yes, we’re almost there – is transferring the refreshing treat into a dessert glass.
Susan likes to enjoy hers with a dribble of chocolate sauce on top.
