Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies



These ooey gooey and quite frankly,rather messy treats have caused quite a stir!
I first cast my eyes on them when my daughter sent me a photo insisting I make them and ever since,
they're everywhere!
With Easter being just around the corner, I jumped on the bandwagon,followed a few links and found the recipe.
I gather that its originally one of Eric Lanlard's brilliant ideas,I found it on the Cadbury Creme Egg facebook page.

Here's my effort...

Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies

I was a little worried,I was convinced Id over baked them ever so slightly and that they weren't quite 'gooey' enough.
I was assured by every taster that they were spot on...who am I to argue?!

185g dark chocolate
185g unsalted butter
85g plain flour
40g cocoa powder
3 eggs
275g caster sugar
6 Cadbury creme eggs

Firstly preheat the oven to 180 or gas mark 4 and then,melt the butter and chocolate together. 
Either in the microwave in 30 second bursts or by sitting the bowl on a saucepan of hot water.
Once melted set to the side and then in a separate bowl,crack in the eggs and add the sugar.
Using an electric whisk (or a hand whisk if you have the energy!) on high speed keep whisking until the eggy sugar becomes almost mousse like,it will take a good few minutes but it will be very pale and have almost doubled in size.
Now add to this the cooled melted butter/chocolate and combine it all together.
Sift in the flour and cocoa powder and gently fold it in.

Now this is where I tell you I don't have an actual 'brownie pan' but,I DO have my new toy.
I recently bought myself the Alan Silverwood multisize tin,yes I do know that its quite sad I consider a baking/cake tin a toy but I love it!
So anyway,I set the dividers to 8 x 8 inches and poured the mixture in.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes,I say that because I took mine out at 18 but I know my oven.

Whilst baking,take a sharp knife and cut the creme eggs in half,be careful...you don't want fingers in there too!

They're tricky,I couldn't seem to get a clean cut but it really doesn't matter.
Gently put the halved creme eggs onto the brownies evenly spaced apart.

Then pop back into the oven and bake for a further 10minutes to finish off and melt the creme eggs.
Let the brownies completely cool in the tin before cutting into slices.

I cant say they're the prettiest bake but they are amazing!

  6. Hello, I made these last year and ever since this recipe has been the one i use for standard chocolate brownies as well as the special treat Creme Egg ones!! My question is ....if i was to make these brownies the day before could i then microwave them just before serving so that they were warm ?!?! Or do you think it would ruin them???
    Many thanks

  10. In the oven as we speak, had to drive to 5 different shops to get creme eggs as Easter is over and they don't sell them anywhere! Fingers crossed it'll be worth it! Thanks
