Easter … Brownies?

Someone in my nest has a sweet tooth. Okay, more than one someone! One of the confections that is at the top of the drool-worthy sweets list is the Cadbury Creme Egg. Now, imagine taking the flavors associated with these tasty treats and layering a legion of them over your favorite brownies.

This recipe does not include a recipe for the brownies. There are a great many fantastic brownie recipes out there, in our recipe index and otherwise. What this recipe is about is layering that sticky, delicious creme filling and a thick coating of fudge-like milk chocolate over what would otherwise be an ordinary pan of brownies. You can choose the brownies that make up the foundation. Cater to particular tastes (coffee-infused) or special diets (gluten free). Then take another 15 minutes and transform them into something truly festive! Happy Easter!

Creme Egg Brownies

  • 1 9x13-inch pan of prepared brownies
For Cream Filling:
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
For Chocolate Glaze:
  • 1 bag (12 oz.) milk chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Set the prepared brownies aside in their ovenproof pan.

For the cream filling, beat together the corn syrup, butter, and vanilla on medium-high speed until smooth. Add the powdered sugar, a little bit at a time, mixing until creamy. Carefully spread the mixture over the top of the prepared brownies. If you can't spread it to the very edges, that's okay. It will spread a bit more in the oven.

Once the filling has been added, sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the top of the cream filling and place the brownies in the preheated oven for 8 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and, using a table knife, spread the chocolate over the top to cover the filling with no gaps. Cool completely before serving.
