I do not believe in making things more complicated than they need to be. But I do believe in making delicious food… especially if it involves chocolate.
I put off making Creme Egg brownies for a long time, primarily because they looked so good I assumed they must be complicated. Experimentation however proved me wrong. They are in fact surprisingly easy.
And a brilliant way to wow your children!
So what are you waiting for? Get out your mixing bowl and give them a go:
- 6 oz dark chocolate
- 6 Creme Eggs
- 4 oz butter
- 8 oz caster sugar
- 2 large eggs
- A couple of drops of vanilla essence
- 5 oz plain flour
- A tube of white chocolate icing to drizzle
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- Break 6 oz of dark chocolate into small chunks and melt with 4 oz butter.
- Once melted stir in 8oz of caster sugar evenly.
- Beat two large eggs and stir into the mixture alongside a couple of drops of vanilla essence.
- Stir in 5 oz of plain flour (no need to sieve).
- Place the mixture into a square cake tin and spread out evenly.
- Cut Creme Eggs in half length ways carefully with a knife and insert nine halves carefully into your mixture at even intervals.
- Bake in the oven for approximately 20 minutes depending on how gooey you like your brownies.
- Leave to cool slightly before piping white chocolate in zig zigs for decoration.
