Creme Egg Chocolate Brownies

Creme Egg Chocolate Brownies, Mini Creme Eggs, Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, gooey, easy, Easter, delicious

Last night I baked these Creme Egg Chocolate Brownies with some odds and ends of chocolate, a creme egg and a pack of mini creme eggs for my daughter’s school cake bake. I hadn’t really intended to bake anything as I’d heard my hubby and daughter discussing the fact that they would bake something together so I put it out of my mind. Then we remembered that my daughter was going to tea with a friend so there wouldn’t be time for her to bake. This then led to hubby googling over the top cupcakes with lashings of piped buttercream. My mind was filled with horror as I could imagine the state of the kitchen with bowls, tins and a messy piping bag left for me to clear up – plus I wasn’t keen on my entire butter reserve being depleted.

Hence I got my thinking cap on and remembered that my daughter and I had bought some Cadbury’s creme eggs the day before and after toying with the idea of cupcakes I decided that Brownies were the way forward. For an extra touch of awesomeness I decided to melt the large creme egg into the mixture for that extra bit of gooey, chewiness. The mini creme eggs were split and used to decorate the top. Well I don’t think there are enough words to describe quite how delectable these brownies were, did I mention the milk chocolate chunks? Suffice to say no-one here actually wanted to let the brownies leave the house after sampling. Indeed my daughter left the cake tin behind this morning – an accident she said! I duly took the brownies into school at pick-up time and watched the squares of deliciousness being snapped up at the bake sale. As my son had said he would like to come with me to the bake sale to buy back the cakes I did buy back the last 2 slices – well it was a win/win situation wasn’t it!

It’s half term next week so I’ve promised to make some more brownies, why don’t you make some too or even better get the kids to help! You won’t be disappointed but maybe avoid if you’re on a diet, as health food they aint!

    They look great! I hope the poorer quality chocolate Cadbury’s are using this year (not Cadbury’s Dairy Milk) doesn’t detract….

      Thanks Sian – they are positively sinful:-)

  23. Emily Leary

    They look really delicious and I think you’ve got a good ratio of brownie to creme egg – I’ll have two, please! 😉

    1. Camilla

    1. Camilla

      You can always freeze the rest Jen and they keep for a good while too in cake tin:-)

  29. All That I'm Eating

    These sound so good! Using mini creme eggs makes it sound like it’s more acceptable to eat more than one at a time!
