A couple of weekends ago me and my best friend Carla had a day of disney and baking. One of the things we made and so Easter appropriate were Creme Egg Brownies. We have discussed making these for as long as i can pretty much remember, so it was fun to finally have a go!
185g Unsalted Butter
185g Dark Chocolate
85g Plain flour
40g Cocoa powder
6 Creme eggs
3 Large eggs
275g caster sugar
It literally couldn't be any easier if it tried! First you melt the butter and chocolate together in a bowl on a hob over boiling water.In a separate bowl, break 3 eggs and whisk in the caster sugar until they look creamy. Pour in the cool melted chocolate and fold together. Sift in both the flour and the cocoa powder and again fold in.
Place into a lined baking tray, we used butter but you can line with grease proof paper, then pour in the mixture. Place the mixture in the over minus the creme eggs for 20 minutes, take out and then place half a creme egg evenly in the baking tray. Bake for a further 5 minutes.
Leave to cool before cutting and removing from the tin but take care as they are quite fiddly.
We kept the creme eggs in the fridge so they were quite hard and probably didn't push them into the mixture as much as we should have, but we weren't expecting them to be perfect first time around. They tasted pretty amazing if i do say so myself, but you cant go far wrong when creme eggs are involved.
I must admit they went down extremely well with my younger brother who demanded that we make them again.
Have you made creme egg brownies this year? or last? How did they turn out?
