Easter Brownie Recipe

Mini Egg Brownies

Having shared a brownie recipe before, I wasn’t sure whether I should share another. But these Easter inspired brownies came out so well, that I couldn’t not.

I made these this week for a charity bake sale at work. Using my classic basic recipe, that I use to make all of my brownies, I added marshmallows to the mix for a change. Plus a drizzle of white chocolate and crushed Mini Eggs to make them Easter friendly.

The marshmallows came to me as I was scrolling through recipes online. We’ve had a bag of giant marshmallows in our cupboard for a while, which I’ve not known what to do with. I chopped them up into chunks, added them to the brownie mix, and as they cooked, they browned and melted. Creating almost a chewing gum like consistency. Super gooey!

Gooey Mini Egg Brownies

Ingredients (makes 12):

  • 250g dark chocolate
  • 250g unsalted butter
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 150g plain flour
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 100g chopped marshmallows
  • 100g white chocolate
  • 200g Mini Eggs

Method:

  1. Begin by lining a deep over proof tray with parchment paper and turn the oven on to 180 degrees.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of boiling water.
  3. Meanwhile add the sugar, flour, cocoa powder and eggs to a large mixing bowl. Combine well, before pouring in the chocolate and butter mix.
  4. Continue to stir and fold in the marshmallows.
  5. Once fully combined, pour into your oven proof tray. Bake for 30 minutes are until the the top layer has hardened and cracked.
  6. Remove from the oven and set to one side to cool.
  7. Melt the white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. At the same time, lightly crush your Mini Eggs in their bag with a rolling pin.
  8. Drizzle the white chocolate over the cooling brownies and sprinkle over the Mini Eggs.
  9. Leave for a further 30 minutes (or overnight) until set.
  10. Cut your brownies with a clean sharp knife.
