Easy Easter Chocolate Brownies:
Unexpected Easter visitors? You know – that phone call on Good Friday from friends to say they will be coming your way over the weekend. Or just want to rustle up something quick and seasonal. Keeping a pack of Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies in the cupboard makes it really easy to do a little home baking. If you are willing to sacrifice those packs of mini eggs you tucked away in the cupboard for a rainy bank holiday afternoon you can easily pimp things up in keeping with Easter with these easy Easter chocolate brownies.
I’ve been playing around with chocolate mini eggs and the Fudge Brownie mix. Although I love brownies I don’t have a really sweet tooth so I tend to add to my packet mix. Fudge brownies work really well with a spoonful or two of chocolate nut butter added to the mix – it just makes a richer, darker brownie. I add a tablespoon of pure cocoa and a little baking powder and two eggs rather than one. My oil of choice for this recipe is hazelnut oil because it complements the nut butter. AND, if there are no children coming, I replace the water with 5 tablespoons of spiced rum.
Luckily I’ve got friends to share these with – my problem with brownies is that I want to eat them all at once.
In case you were wondering, I actually used two different mini eggs here. Galaxy Caramel Mini Eggs, split in half with the caramel side up, went into the tray bake before I cooked the mixture.
When I took the tray from the oven, I popped a Galaxy golden egg (to make a yolk) into each egg half.
The result is truly delicious…chocolate overkill maybe – but of the best sort. What better way to say #ICakeYou with Betty Crocker
Disclosure: I was sent Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix by Betty Crocker in order to make this recipe.
