Easiest Creme Egg Brownies

crememeggbadge

Around last Easter, my social media timelines were filled with photos of Cadburys Creme Egg Brownies. I remember thinking,  firstly what a great idea they were for Easter, and secondly that I must have a go at making them next year. So roll on almost 12 months and I have done just that!

I have made them very easy brownies similar to the ones which I made for the first time for Valentines Day . These Creme Egg Brownies use just 5 ingredients making them perfect for busy people, and would also be ideal for children to help make too. My brownies did break up a bit as soon as I cut them – this might have been my fault, as I sliced them before they had cooled down completely. But then I like eating them when they are still warm and gooey inside! How do you like to eat yours?

Recipe type: desserts
Serves: 9
Ingredients
  • 1 jar of chocolate spread
  • 100g self raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp cream cheese
  • 5 Cadburys Creme Eggs
Instructions
  1. Pre heat the oven to 180oC / 160oC (fan)
  2. Grease and line a square baking tin - mine is 7 x 7 inches
  3. Place the chocolate spread, eggs and flour into a bowl and beat together (I used my free standing mixer)
  4. Once all the ingredients have been combined, fold in the cream cheese just so - you want to see a marbled effect
  5. Pour in to your baking tin
  6. Then slice each creme egg in half using a sharp knife
  7. Place 9 of them on top of your brownie - 3 rows of 3
  8. Very gently push each egg down a little to nestle into the brownie batter
  9. Place in the oven and cook for about 25 minutes - you want the brownie to still be a little wobbly but if you prefer yours more cooked through continue cooking for another 5-10 minutes checking as you go
  10. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least an hour before removing from your tin to slice in to squares

These brownies taste very, very good, if a little rich, but actually not that sweet considering that they contain creme eggs. I think this is due to the fact that the brownie batter is not that indulgent or sugary like a normal brownie, owing to the simple ingredients used. These would be lovely served with some ice cream while the brownie is warm. They did not cut as equally as I would have liked, so they do look a little ermmm rustic, BUT they tasted great, so I am not too worried about them not being unifomed in size and shape!

The recipe is just so easy and with Easter on the way, why not have a go at making some – they make an egg-cellent alternative to regular brownies 🙂

  1. I have never seen them before. I have to admit not being a fan of the creme egg but I do love brownies – may even make some for my other half as you make them seem so easy.

  2. These look yummy! The recipe looks easy enough for me to give these a go (I’m a novice!). Can I ask what chocolate spread you used? X

  3. I have seen a few different variations of this recipe, and they just look so yummy. Yours especially. I may have to make some with Mads, I doubt they will look as good as yours! x

  4. Ahhh, clever! They look great! Thanks so much for linking up with #recipeoftheweek. I’ve pinned and tweeted this post and hope to see you linking up again soon! 😀 x

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, a virtual cup of tea and slice of cake awaits you x
