Creme Egg Brownie HEART-ATTACK!!!

I really loved these brownies but wanted to make my own recipe combo and make them a little bit lighter; finding a base brownie recipe that I could add any goodies to, be it Easter, Halloween or Christmas…or just a Friday!

Moist, chocolatey and full of Easter!

Ingredients

Brownie Mix

  • 125g Butter or Willow
  • 75g dark brown sugar
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 125g self-raising flour
  • 150g dark chocolate
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Toppings

  • 3 Creme Eggs – cut in quarters
  • 100g bag of mini-eggs (or more!)
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 160 degrees and grease a brownie tin (8in)

Melt the butter, chocolate and 2tbsp of water GENTLY!

Stir to combine and leave to cool slightly

  • Stir in the vanilla essence, sugar and eggs until smooth.

Fold in the flour

  • Add your pinch of salt and stir again.
  • Get your bag of mini-eggs and smash them gently with a rolling pin – you don’t want them disintegrated, just broken up.

Add half the smashed up mini-eggs to the mix and stir

Pour in the greased tray and pop in the oven….

  • Put the tin in the oven, on the middle shelf and leave for 20mins, a crust will begin to form but the brownie will still wobble a lot in the middle.

Once removed gently push in the remaining eggs and creme eggs

  • BE CAREFUL though, under the crust it’s very gooey and the mix is boiling hot!

Back in to the oven for 15mins!

All done…delicious gooey-ness

  • Leave the tin on the cooker top to cool completely
  • This will take about 3hrs

Chop up in to edible portions – 16 for me!

This mix is incredibly delicious and very chocolatey so I was able to manage a substantial 16 portions out of this tin with a bit of creme egg goo and mini-eggs on each piece.

The beauty is that you can add or take away as much of the ‘topping’ ingredients as you like or change them to something else; i’m thinking a kinder bueno one next, or peanut butter m&m’s!

Mmmmm goo goodness

Enjoy your creation!
