Creme Egg brownies have become an Easter favourite with children and adults alike, and making them couldn't be easier with our simple and quick Creme Egg brownies recipe. Using a classic brownie recipe, these gooey and soft brownies are transformed into an Easter classic that's incredibly quick to make. You'll only need 10 minutes to prep the brownie mix using our classic chocolate brownie recipe and then all you have to do is pop them in the oven and wait for 20 minutes until this delicious Easter dessert is ready to be enjoyed. Topped with melting Creme Eggs, this tasty tray bake would be ideal for sharing this Easter with family and friends. The kids are just going to love the chocolaty goodness in each bite, and you can even ask for their help when making the brownies. They would definitely love to help put the Creme Eggs in the brownies – although they'll probably also sneakily eat a few too, so watch out! The Creme Eggs are added to the brownie mix five minutes before it's cooked, which means that the eggs will be warm and gooey inside. Serve with ice cream for dessert or have with a warm cuppa when the family come round. These would go down especially well on Easter Sunday if you're getting the whole family together, but you can also start practising as soon as Creme Eggs start to appear in the shops – it's never too early! This Creme Egg brownies recipe makes 12 so consider doubling the recipe if you've got a big family – we guarantee they'll vanish in seconds! Also, make sure you line your tin with greaseproof paper before baking some so there's no chance that your brownies will burn.
