Easter is our favourite time of year, mostly because there’s so much more chocolate around than at any other time. The appearance of daffodils, crocus and the promise of warmer weather and sunny days being just around the corner, gives us all a boost from the grey winter and we have more of a spring in our step.
Dog walks start to become more of a pleasure than a quick dash out in the rain and these Easter Brownies, especially the small ones made with mini eggs, are a firm family favourite, wrapped in foil and brought our half way round the dog walk. We hope you love them too.
This chocolate brownie recipe is really easy and quick and one I’ve used for years. Whilst it is good on its own what makes it extra special for Easter, especially for the kids, is what you can put on the top just before the last 10 minutes of cooking.
This time I’ve used Mini Malteser Bunnies, mini Cadbury Crème Eggs & mini Cadbury Dime Bar eggs, but you can use anything chocolatey, large Crème eggs, caramel eggs, plain mini eggs with the hard shells and chocolate coins (foil off) work well too.
This recipe makes approximately 30 small bite sized brownies
