Reese’s Eggs are basically the best Easter candy ever created. Don’t argue with me, because you’d be wrong. Now that Reese’s has decided to make holiday shapes for every holiday, my life is complete. The egg is still the best shape because I think it’s bigger. Either way, this Reese’s Egg Cake is awesome. As kids, we used to frantically dig through our Easter baskets looking for these eggs. Yes, they’re that good.

Reese’s Egg Cake
- 1 cake mix (we used carrot, because Easter)
- 1 cream cheese frosting
- 3 (6) packs Reese’s Eggs
- 2 cups shredded, sweetened coconut
- About 25 drops green food coloring
- Jelly beans (we used Nerds jelly beans)
- Before doing anything, place your Reese’s Eggs in the freezer.
- Next, using a round cake pan, bake cake according to directions on box.
- While the cake is baking, place your coconut and food coloring in a bowl and mix.
- It will take a few minutes of flipping and mixing the coconut for the food coloring to spread throughout. I suggest doing a few drops at a time.
- Once the cake is baked, pull it from the oven and let it cool for at least 30 minutes.
- Once the cake is cool to the touch, remove it from the pan and place it on a cake stand or whatever you choose to serve it from. Be sure the flat side of the cake is down.
- Frost the entire cake all the way down the sides.
- Once frosted, pull your chocolate from the freezer and begin un-packaging them. One at a time, with the pointy side facing up, place the eggs against the side of the cake. If the frosting doesn’t hold them firmly, add a bit of extra frosting to the back of the egg and reapply.
- Once your eggs are fully on, fill the middle of the cake with your green coconut and the jelly beans!
