Ingredients
 
 

Brownie:

  • ¾ cup melted butter
  • 3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips melted
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs room temp
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 5 oz Cadbury mini eggs broken into large pieces.
  • flaked sea salt for topping

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a 8x8 pan with parchment paper and spray.
  • Start by melting the butter and 3 ounces of chocolate chips together in the microwave. I start with 30 seconds and then stir, continue in 15 second intervals until melted.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, mix melted butter/chocolate with sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and mix again.
  • Whisk in baking powder, salt, flour and cocoa powder. Fold in most of the broken mini eggs, and then place some on the top of the batter also.
  • Bake for about 30-35 minutes. You want the edges to start to pull away from the sides of the pan and darken, and a toothpick inserted in the middle to come out clean. Sprinkle with sea salt. Then allow them to sit and firm up while they cool.

Notes

These brownies freeze well. I often times will double the recipe and then throw them in the freezer for when I need a quick treat for someone.
To break my mini eggs into pieces, I put the in a ziplock bag and then smash them with a large cup.
I have given both cups and grams as measurements. Grams will be more precise, especially when measuring flour. If you don’t have a kitchen scale, no problem! Just lightly spoon flour into your measuring cup to insure its not packed in there. Light and fluffy is the key.
