Mini Egg Brownies


It seems like this year Easter came up even quicker than usual. Although I am definitely not complaining with spring in full swing and winter thankfully (hopefully) behind us now, this also means that Easter recipes are a must! Especially if you and your family spend Easter at home, a solid Easter menu is essential.

A classic with an Easter twist

Having it be Easter and all, sweets are most definitely the star of the day. For this recipe, I knew I wanted to have a classic brownie but with a fun easter twist. My sister and I have always loved the mini Cadbury eggs and for this brownie recipe they were even better than I had imagined.

Mini cadbury egg brownies

Extra fudgy and delicious

This brownie recipe is similar to our previous Caramel Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Brownies with Cashews with a couple small adjustments. Firstly, these Mini Egg Brownies are baked in an 8x8 baking pan. The reason for this was with the Cadbury eggs mixed in, I wanted to ensure that these brownies were extra fudgy and on the thicker side too.

You will of course first start with your dry ingredients. Let's quickly review...

  • flour
  • granulated sugar
  • light brown sugar
  • cocoa powder
  • salt

After you combine the above ingredients, you will then combine the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and then gradually add your dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients (yes, it really is that easy) stirring to combine.

The star here - the mini eggs

Now it's time for the star of these brownies, the mini eggs! I like to make them a bit smaller by breaking them into bits before adding. This is all preference but it does make them a tad easier to mix in and leaves you with slightly smaller pieces in the center of your brownies. After you mix in your mini eggs you're ready to pour your batter into a greased baking dish. The batter should be on the thicker side and have a slightly grainy texture to it. Before popping it in the oven, top with additional crushed mini eggs.

After baking for approximately 30 minutes, your brownies should have a fudgy center with the edges having a slight crisp to them. Before letting them cool, I like to top them with a few more whole mini eggs for any that may have sunk a tad while baking. Then let cool, cut, and voila! The perfect, easy, Easter dessert.
