Let’s make Crème Egg Brownies. Because you and I love brownies, we love Cadbury Crème Eggs in all its forms and we love Easter. Plus, do we really need any reason to face plant ourselves in this rather indulgent chocolate treat?
Plus these Mini Egg Brownies are easyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. As easy as these peanut butter banana brownies or these avocados brownies. Yeap, I totally want you guys to fall in foodie love with (all) these brownies as much as I have because well they are THAT good.
Do you know one reason why this recipe works? Leftover Cadbury Crème Eggs. You HAVE to buy enough Crème Eggs to ‘test’ this recipe out a few times, then clearly you HAVE to buy enough and then some more for ALL of Easter. All the leftover Crème Eggs people, all the leftover ones. With which you get to make these Crème Egg Brownies again and again and again…….
Cadbury Crème Egg Brownies Tips
The base of these brownies is Cadbury Crème Egg, chocolate, peanut butter and bananas. Because chocolate, peanut butter and bananas just work together really well. Ok because I love bananas in brownies, but it totally works.
Oh and tip moment here. You want to only add the Mini Crème Eggs 2 thirds the way through baking. Otherwise, you might end up with some rather interesting flavoured Crème Eggs that even an Easter egg addiction would not save.
Trust me I found out the hard way. Plus, there was that other time I decided to bake brownies with almond flakes and rose petals on the top. Never making that mistake again…….
Another tip is to warm up the peanut butter in the microwave for about 20-30 secs to get it all easy to mix in or marble on the top.
How to Make Creme Egg Brownies
Step 1. Once you’ve preheated your oven, get out a large bowl and mash two ripe bananas.
Step 2. Add sugar, oil (rapeseed or castor), almond milk, 1.5 tsbp of peanut butter (the rest comes later), and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
Step 3. Next, add flour, cocoa powder, chocolate chips (if making this vegan, ensure these are vegan chocolate chips), and salt.
Step 4. Mix until combined.
Step 5. Pour batter into a lightly oiled baking tray, silicone if you have it. Pour remaining 2 tbsp peanut butter on top and swirl it into batter.
Step 6. Bake for 20 mins and remove.
Step 7. Add the mini Cadbury Crème Egg halves to the top of the brownie, return and bake for a further 8-10 mins.
Step 8. Remove from the oven, allow the brownies to cool before cutting. Top with extra crème eggs and other chocolate.
How Long Do Crème Egg Brownies Last
Well, that is the question. And in my house the last for only 1 day. However, they have lasted up to 3 days with no problem whatsoever. But seriously, I bow to you if you can keep them that long….
