Creme Egg Brownies - 8 Easy Steps

Want to create the perfect Easter sweet treat? The obvious choice is the ever-popular Creme Egg brownies, which have taken over the likes of Pinterest + Instagram during the Easter period. They're pretty easy to make, so even if you're no Mary Berry you'll find this recipe easy to replicate. They're also ridiculously delicious. Here is my really simple + easy to follow recipe - let the baking begin!

What you'll need:
A bowl to mix up the ingredients
A glass bowl + saucepan to melt the chocolate (ban-marie style)
A whisk (electric preferably)
A wooden spoon or two
Weighing scales
A sharp knife
A square tin + baking parchment

5-6 Creme Eggs (or filled egg of your choice!)
180g butter
3 eggs
270g caster sugar
200g chocolate
85g plain flour
4-5 tablespoons cocoa powder

Preparation time: 10-15 minutes
Baking time: 30 minutes approx.

1. Break up chocolate in a glass bowl, and add the butter. Place the bowl over a saucepan of hot water, and stir occasionally to ensure the chocolate at the bottom doesn't burn.

2. Meanwhile, whisk up the eggs + sugar until the mixture becomes thicker + light cream in colour.

3. Once melted, pour the chocolate into the egg + sugar mixture, and stir with the wooden spoon until fully mixed.

4. Add cocoa powder + flour using a sieve, fold into the mixture until there is an even colour throughout.

5. Pour the mixture into the tin lined with baking parchment, ensuring the brownie mix is evenly spread.

6. Bake at 170 degrees for 15-20 minutes. 

7. Slice up the Creme Eggs, into halves or thirds. Press into the half-cooked brownie mixture, and then put back into the oven for a remaining 10-12 minutes.

8. Take out the brownies and let cool for at least an hour. Once fully cooled cut your brownie into 12 bars and store in an air tight container.

So that's it - really simple! They taste amazing, crisp on the outside, and gooey in the middle. And feel free to mix it up if Creme Eggs aren't your thing. Caramel Eggs would be pretty delicious too, just put your chocolate eggs in closer towards the end of the cooking time so the caramel doesn't burn.
