I never need an excuse to make a brownie. It’s a bake that you just know that everyone will love and there’s nothing simpler that tweaking a brownie for the seasons. So on that note, I thought I’d share our Mini Eggs Brownies recipe that the kids absolutely love.

What do you need to make a chocolate Mini Egg Brownie?

For this easy Mini Egg Brownies recipe you just need butter, sugar, flour, eggs and unsweetened cocoa powder. I then throw in some milk chocolate chips to add to the chocolate flavour and we then finish with whole Mini Eggs in the bake and on top too.

You could chop of smash the Mini Eggs if you wanted and sprinkle Mini Egg pieces to the top of the bake but I love using whole ones and they slice really nicely in the bake too. It gives a really nice texture to the finished brownie.

We use just generic cocoa powder for this bake but you could use Cadbury cocoa powder if you wanted to add an extra level of Cadbury flavour. Also, instead of the chocolate chips you could use chopped Cadbury Dairy Milk too.

We also use caster sugar for this recipe but you could also use golden caster sugar or even granulated sugar if you wanted to. It’s a really easy recipe to vary to use whatever you have in your larder cupboard at home.

Because this is such a rich, flavoursome bake, I don’t add any vanilla extract to the mix. Also, unlike making more traditional cakes, as you melt the butter in this recipe it doesn’t need to be at room temperature.

This easy bake is such a wonderful Easter treat, full of Easter candy coated Cadbury eggs. It has the perfect brownie consistency, a nice and fudgy texture in the middle but crisp at the edges. Plus, it’s so simple to vary too. You could add any type of Easter eggs to the mix – any Easter chocolate eggs from the supermarket – and it’s a great way of using up leftover chocolate from Easter time too.

How do you serve this Easter Brownie?

Honestly, we just slice and eat these chocolate brownies, it never lasts long in our house! You could also serve the Easter Brownies warm with custard or a ball of ice cream on top and it’s perfect to make for an Easter bake sale or as part of an afternoon tea spread. You really cannot beat fudgy brownies.
