These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies make a great Easter dessert!
I bought a few bags of Cadbury Creme Eggs almost two months ago with the goal of making these brownies but it seems the hidey hole I put them in to keep safe from my husband (who just LOVES them) was a little too good as I couldn’t find them for almost a week! Thankfully the boys found them when they were ‘playing’ aka tearing apart the pantry the other day, so I immediately got everything together I needed (all pantry staples) to make this Creme Egg Brownies recipe.
These Creme Egg Brownies are a variation of my Double Chocolate Chip Brownie recipe and while I left out the white chocolate chips, I decided to keep a few of the chocolate chips in this recipe – after all you can never have too much chocolate right?!
These brownies are bursting with creme egg pieces and chocolate chips, making them the perfect easter treat for all the chocoholics out there. I cooked these brownies until the top was just set (there was the slightest wiggle when I carefully shook the pan) which took around 35 minutes. I then left them in the tin until they were completely cool (yep this is hard to do I know and I had to shoo my husband away a few times as he was eager to taste test them!) before I carefully removed them and cut into pieces. Doing this helps the brownies to set better and gives them that yummy fudgey consistency.
Because I’m not a huge creme egg fan, I left the taste testing to my husband. He is a man of few words (I make up for it!) but he did comment they were ‘pretty good’ and helped himself to four pieces over the course of the afternoon so I’m taking that as big thumbs up!
Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies
- 150 g of butter
- 1 cup 220g of caster sugar
- 3/4 cup 75g of cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup 75g of plain flour
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
- 2 x 130g packs of mini creme eggs
- 3 x 39g creme eggs
Preheat your oven to 160 degrees and line the base and sides of a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper – this will help you to remove the brownies once they are cooked.
In a large saucepan (you want it to be big enough to add the extra ingredients to later), melt the butter, cocoa and sugar over a low heat.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the vanilla extract and eggs and whisk the mixture as you go.
Sift the flour into the saucepan and whisk to combine.
Add the chocolate chips and 12 mini creme eggs which have been cut in half and stir to combine.
Pour the brownie mixture into the prepared tin and smooth the surface. Top the brownies with pieces of the large creme eggs and a few of the mini creme eggs if you wish.
Place the brownies into the oven to bake for 35 minutes.
Carefully remove the cooked brownies from the oven and allow them to completely cool in the tin before removing, cut into small pieces .
You can just use one bag on mini creme eggs for this recipe, however to ensure you have lots of creme eggs in each bite, I like to use 1 1/2 packs plus a few bigger creme eggs.
Take care not to overcook these brownies, as you want them to be gooey in the middle and not completely cooked through like a cake.
Store these brownies in an airtight container for 2 - 3 days.
