These fabulous Oreo and Cadbury Caramel Egg Brownies are a delicious and decadent treat for Easter, or maybe all year round!
I love baking with all of the different chocolate treats you can buy for Easter. My Oreo and Cadbury Caramel Egg Brownies are an example of such a treat, and are sure to make any brownie fan happy and content.
My first attempt at these brownies went disastrously wrong. It cracked and broke up once I removed it from its tin. Gutted. However, while my brownies were not suitable for blog or social media photographs, they were still edible.
I gave them away to a local playgroup who I bake for once a week, and they were a HUGE hit. This made me determined to have another try, because if they tasted that good then I knew I was onto a winning brownie idea!
Thankfully, my second batch turned out perfectly and did not crack upon its removal from the baking tin.
As you can see from the photographs, there is a whole Oreo cookie at the bottom of each slice which adds some lovely texture to the brownies.
There is also some white chocolate chinks inside the main brownie , but these were not visible, as they no doubt melted into the batter as the cake cooked.
Finally, the top of the brownies are topped with Cadbury Caramel eggs sliced in half, allowing the gooey caramel to be all oozey and yummy and adding another dimension to the brownies.
These are seriously good brownies.
Once photographed, I cut these brownies in half and shared them with some friends and they did not last very long I can tell you. Even my fussy children enjoyed sampling a couple.
If you fancy giving these brownies a try yourself, then here is the recipe:
Recipe for Oreo and Cadbury Caramel Egg Brownies
- 100g dark chocolate
- 100g milk chocolate
- 250g unsalted butter
- 150g chopped white chocolate
- 80g quality cocoa powder
- 65g self raising flour
- 100g caster sugar
- 4 eggs
- 16 Oreo cookies
- 8 Cadbury Caramel Eggs
- Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan
- Line a 24cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper.
- Place 16 Oreo cookies on the bottom of the tin
- Melt the butter and the dark and milk chocolate in a large microwave proof bowl on 30 second hurts, until melted, stirring regularly.
- Beat in the eggs until you have a silky liqui
- Add the cocoa powder and flour and mix together.
- Add the chopped white chocolate and stir through
- Pour the brownie mix into the baking tin, covering the cookies. Top the batter with the caramel eggs – each one sliced half ways – with the caramel tasing upwards.
- Bake in the oven for around 25-30 minutes. The brownies should be slightly springy on the outside but still gooey in the middle when ready, so keep an eye on them after 25 minutes.
- Allow to cool in the tray, then carefully transfer to a large chopping board and cut into chunky squares.
