Easter Egg Brownies are what dreams are made of! Fudgy brownies filled with assorted mini Easter eggs and chocolates topped with a chocolate ganache, more Mini Eggs and a white chocolate drizzle.
Easter is coming up fast! I know it probably doesn’t feel like it to most – it certainly doesn’t for me – but I hope this recipe will brighten up everyone’s day in self isolation, quarantine or a day off if you are an essential worker!
I have already shared one Easter recipe this year. My Easter Egg Rocky Road and you can expect another one or two before Easter arrives!
Now, I know people in some parts of the world are struggling to find basic ingredients so if you can’t get your hands on a bag of flour you can make these brownies flourless by using my flourless brownie recipe instead as the base for all the Easter eggs!
Similar, if you don’t have many ingredients at home but you do have a brownie box mix, you can make that according to the box instructions and then add in the Easter eggs and my the ganache etc.
What Easter Eggs to use
Honestly the answer is ‘it’s up to you!’. I focused mainly on Cadbury mini eggs and the M&M Speckled Eggs for the pops of colour. I also threw in some Kinder mini eggs and Cadbury Oreo eggs as well.
Basically, whatever solid mini eggs you like and whatever you have at home is totally fine!
