Creme Egg Brownies

Creme Egg Brownies

Not the usual sort of recipe I like to post BUT it’s Easter and sharing is caring. I truly believe everyone’s life can be greatly improved by making and eating these (in moderation ofcourse).

Abbie has been pestering me to make cakes for a while now and rather than do the usual shop bought ones with her that she loves so much and eats all the ‘stickers’ off and none of the actual cake, I thought we would make an effort to do some nice Easter themed ones.

I’ve made these once before and they are so good especially about half an hour after they come out of the oven and are still warm and gooey, I would strongly advise inviting people over so that you have to share them and there is no risk of you eating all 12.

For 12 Brownies you will need

  • 180g Dark Chocolate
  • 180g Unsalted Butter
  • 3 Eggs
  • 250g Caster Sugar
  • 80g Plain Flour
  • 40g Cocoa Powder
  • 6 Cream Eggs

First things first, pop the oven on 180’c and line a tin with greaseproof paper. I used a 20cm x 30cm deep tin and a bit of FryLight (the irony)

Then break up the Chocolate and put in a bowl with the Butter over some hot water until melted.

Mix the Eggs and Sugar together in a large bowl, then use an electric mixer to whisk until light and fluffy.

Sieve together the flour and cocoa and set to the side.

Add the Butter and Chocolate to the Egg mixture folding in gently. Make sure the Chocolate mixture isn’t hot as it will scramble the Eggs.

Once it’s all mixed together, add the Flour and Cocoa gradually, folding that in gently too.

Once everything’s mixed together, add to the tin and spread out evenly. Then pop into the oven for 15 minutes.

Whilst it’s in the oven cut the Creme Eggs in half ready to pop on top.

After the 15 minutes, remove the tray from the oven and top with the Creme Eggs pushing down gently. Then put the tray back in the oven for 5 minutes.

Leave to cool in the tray for 30 minutes then lift them out and cut into 12 squares.

Hope you enjoy these… I can’t imagine any reason why anyone wouldn’t 🙂
