I absolutely love Creme Eggs. I think they are a fab little Easter treat and I love baking with them. I’m seeing a few friends and loved ones over the Easter holidays so I thought I would bake up something tasty to take with me and share with them!
I originally saw the Creme Egg brownie idea on the Cadbury UK Facebook page but that original post has since disappeared!
For the brownies, you can just use your favourite brownie recipe. Just add in the Creme Eggs halfway through baking! I highly recommend my Triple Threat Brownies (without the chocolate chunks, or with, it’s up to you!) as they are easy and super tasty.
The following pictures are taking from my Instagram stories which I highly recommend to watch as I often post how to videos and step by step tutorials whenever I’m in the kitchen.
Equipment wise you will need;
- 8×10″ baking tin (I’m using two tins as I’m making two trays of brownies!)
- greaseproof paper
- pencil & scissors
- Cake release
Ingredients (remember, I’m making two so I’ll have double the ingredients) –
- 200g dark chocolate
- 200g unsalted butter
- 100g plain flour
- 50g cocoa powder
- 3 eggs
- 275g golden caster sugar
The only difference between what I did and the Cadbury UK recipe is I baked at 180c fan instead of 160c and I baked for about 20 minutes before pushing in the Creme Eggs and baked for a further 10 minutes. It all depends how squishy you want you brownie!
Cut into pieces and enjoy!
Happy Easter and happy baking!
