Syns: Not calculated, these are a special treat and high in syns


Ingredients

Scale
  • 400 g milk chocolate
  • 250 g unsalted butter
  • 150 g caster sugar
  • 150 g brown (demerera sugar)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 60 g cocoa
  • 140 g plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 x 80g bag mini eggs (1 bag Galaxy Golden eggs, 1 bag micro eggs (OR just whichever Easter toppings you fancy!))

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180c
  2. Melt 200g of milk chocolate in the microwave ( to do this, break up the chocolate, place in a heatproof bowl and heat in 30 second bursts in the microwave, checking each time, until chocolate is melty and you can stir it)
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla extract using a fork (I microwaved the butter for about 30 seconds to soften it up for ease)
  4. Using a whisk, beat the eggs into the butter and sugar until all combined.
  5. Using a wooden spoon, fold the melted chocolate into the mixture (make sure it’s not piping hot when you do this as you don’t want to cook the egg!)
  6. Add in the cocoa, flour and salt and use the wooden spoon to combine all of the ingredients. don’t beat it just gently fold the mixture to combine it.
  7. Chop up a further 125g of milk chocolate into chunks, and combine into the mixture
  8. Line a 27cm x 20cm brownie pan/ baking tin with greaseproof paper (read above for my tip on this!) and spoon in the mixture so it evenly covers the bottom of the brownie pan
  9. Bake in the middle of the oven for 25-30 minutes (the brownies should be fudgy but not liquidy so if you push carefully on the top they should be firm enough on the top so your finger doesn’t go straight through!)
  10. Melt the remaining 75g of chocolate, and drizzle all over the top of the cooked brownie using a teaspoon
  11. I used Cadburys mini eggs, Galaxy Golden eggs, and some Cadburys Oreo eggs, partly smashing them up by putting them into a clear sandwich bag and bashing them with a rolling pin. You can use any Easter themed toppings that you fancy! My final touch was some tiny little micro Easter eggs, and some hundreds and thousands
  12. Allow to cool most of the way before cutting up so you can get neat slices!
