Everyone seems to have a family favourite Creme Egg Brownie recipe and so I thought I’d share ours. This is a brownie recipe that we bake every Easter and that the children love to both make and enjoy afterwards. There really is nothing quite like a gooey chocolate brownie!

What do you need to make this Creme Egg Brownies Recipe?

For this brownie recipe we use typical brownie ingredients – butter, sugar, eggs, unsweetened cocoa powder and flour. We then add milk chocolate chips to the mix for a little bit more chocolate and then Cadbury Mini Creme Eggs. We have tried using full size Creme Eggs in the past but prefer the cake to egg ratio that the Mini Creme Eggs give.

These easy sweet chocolate brownies are simple to make but you need to make sure you freeze the Creme Eggs before using them. This helps the Creme Eggs in the brownie mixture to keep their shape during baking and makes the halved Creme Eggs for the top a lot easier to slice too!

For the main brownie mixture we use unsalted butter but have used margarine before as well. It doesn’t taste quite the same but still works well as a cheaper option. We also use caster sugar but you could use light brown sugar, golden caster sugar or even granulated sugar. Brownies are great for using whatever you have in the cupboard.

The recipe includes 100g of chocolate chips but you could instead use leftover Easter egg chocolate or any other chocolate you have to hand. You can also leave it out if you like – it won’t really change the finished bake too much.

Can you vary this recipe?

As much as I love Creme Eggs I know they’re not for everyone. You can vary this recipe easily by using any other Easter chocolate eggs in the mix instead of just Cadbury eggs. Galaxy Caramel eggs work really well and I can’t wait to try Reese’s Eggs – the peanut butter hit would be amazing!
