Cream Eggs and Soldiers Lookalike Easter Treat Supplies
- Cadbury Creme Eggs (the full size ones, not the baby ones)
- Plain rectangular biscuits (there are heaps of kinds that will work, just make sure you don’t pick a super-crumbly variety)

Cream Eggs and Soldiers Lookalike Easter Treat Instructions
- Heat up your hot glue gun and while it’s heating, cut the little tab that keeps the two halves of each mini plastic Easter egg together
- When it’s hot, place the fatter half of one of the mini plastic Easter egg face-down on the table and carefully squeeze a glob of hot glue smack dab on top and press the other half of the plastic egg onto it, face-up
- Repeat with the rest of your plastic Easter eggs (however many cups you want)
- Unwrap your first Cadbury Creme Egg halfway
- Run your small, sharp knife under hot water until blade is warmed
- Dry the blade then gently cut off the top of the Cadbury Creme Egg, placing it into one of your plastic Easter egg cups when you’re done
- Repeat with the rest of the Cadbury Creme Eggs
- Cut your biscuits into long pieces (most biscuit varieties will only need to be cut in half lengthwise)
- Serve each egg with approximately 4 long biscuit pieces
