Making your own Easter treats

cream egg opened.JPGOne of the yummiest treats of the season, for those who love Easter candy, is cream eggs.
You know, like the kind you can find in stores "just until Easter, then they'll be gone?"
Big candy companies sell a lot of them at this time of year. In fact, Creme Eggs are the best-selling candy in the United Kingdom between New Year's Day and Easter and of course you can find them in many local chocolate shops too.

They seem a bit tricky to make, filled with a white and yellow cream centre, like the white and yolk of an egg, inside a chocolate shell shaped like and egg.
But you can find plenty of recipes online that claim to show you how easy it is to make Easter cream eggs yourself.
We called up a Montreal foodophile and asked him to put those recipes to the test.
Ryk Edelstein brought the fruits - the eggs? - of his labour to the studio.

He did have some help from someone who's an expert in working with sugar, chef Christian Faure, who recently competed in the "Sugar Dome" competition on the Food Network.
