Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour spooned and leveled
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 6 Cadbury creme eggs chilled, then cut in half

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 8x8 or 9x9 baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and chocolate chips in the microwave for 30 seconds. Take out and stir, then microwave again in 15-second intervals until smooth and no chunks of chocolate are left.
  • Add the sugar to this bowl and stir. Mix in the eggs and vanilla, and give this a good whisk for about a minute, until fully incorporated.
  • Add in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Mix until just incorporated. Pour this mixture into your baking pan and spread out evenly.
  • Cut your creme eggs in half (make sure they are chilled- read above) and place them on top of the brownies, pressing them into the batter gently. Bake for 30-32 minutes, until the brownies are just set. Remove and allow them to cool completely before cutting.

Notes

  • freeze your creme eggs- Cutting creme eggs can be tough because the inside is a runny creamy consistency. Getting them cold beforehand helps! See more on how to cut creme eggs below.
  • line your pan with parchment paper- if you aren't lining your pans with parchment paper you aren't living my friend! It's the ultimate hack for making sure your brownies don't stick and it's easy cleanup!
  • don't over-bake the brownies- Brownies are best when they are baked just right, so under baking them by a couple of minutes and letting them cool in the pan is how to get the best texture brownie.
  • Creme egg brownies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
    To freeze: Once they have cooled, I recommend cutting them into squares and then placing them into a freezer-safe container or bag. They are good in the freezer for up to 3 months. Defrost by letting them sit out and come to room temperature.
