Happy Easter! Every year it’s tradition for me to make my “famous” Cadbury Egg brownies… And to make things a little different this year – I think I may SHARE them with family and friends! Ha…
I use my “go to” brownie recipe for these – pull them out about 10 minutes from being finished – put in the Cadbury Eggs – and then place them back in the oven to finish baking. They are amazing! Try these for your Easter get together – people will be talking the rest of the evening – and wanting the recipe.
Easter Cadbury Egg Fudge Brownies
1 stick unsalted butter (at room temperature)
8 oz. Bittersweet Chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
About 10 Cadbury Eggs, cut length wise down the middle
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.
Butter an 8-inch baking pan or glass dish and line the bottom with parchment paper. Leave a little parchment paper “hanging” over the sides, so you can “lift” the brownies from the pan when they have finished baking.
Place butter and chocolate in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl and heat on high for about 30 seconds. Stir. Keep doing this until the chocolate and butter are melted and can be stirred easily together. It should take about 2 minutes total – maybe a little less (or more) depending on the strength of your microwave.
(I sometimes put the butter and chocolate in a glass bowl and place it over simmering water to melt…I have found that microwaving does the same thing without the hassle…)
Once the chocolate is melted, bring it down to room temperature before continuing.
Once the chocolate is cooled a bit, stir in the sugar until combined.
Stir in the eggs one at a time until smooth. (I sometimes use a whisk for this process.)
Stir in vanilla and instant coffee granules.
After it’s well mixed, GENTLY fold in flour and salt. DO NOT over mix this! I sometimes even leave little streaks of flour running throughout the brownie. It’s important NOT to over mix! 😉
Pour into the greased and parchment lined pan.
Smooth the top evenly.
Place in the preheated oven for 32 minutes exactly.
Take out and place in (cream side up) the cut Cadbury eggs. Place back in oven for 10 minutes.
DO NOT OVER BAKE! (You want them to be a little underdone and fudgy. They will continue to bake a little as they are cooling.)
Once cool – pull up on the parchment paper that was “hanging” from the sides. Be gentle. If brownies stick a little, run a knife around the edges to help loosen.
Cut into pieces.
