Finished Creme Egg Brownies
Another week, another creme egg recipe, and today I bring you what I think is my most highly anticipated recipe. I've never met a person who doesn't like a good brownie, and who wouldn't love a slice of brownie with a yummy creme egg right in the centre of it? Well except people who don't like Creme eggs...

How to make the brownies
There are actually very few steps required in making these brownies, so even the most novice of bakers shouldn't have a problem. The first thing you will want to do is prepare your tin by greasing it with butter, and preheat your oven to 170 degrees. Then you can melt your plain chocolate and butter together, and you can do this however you like, I went with firstly melting the chocolate in the microwave and then stirring the butter into the chocolate whilst it was still hot. Set this to one side to cool, and then begin work on your eggs. Crack the eggs into a bowl, and add the caster sugar, whisk with a hand mixer or stand mixer on high power for roughly 5 minutes until the mixture is lighter in colour and doubles in volume. Once the eggs are done you can fold in your butter and chocolate mixture carefully. Weigh out your flour and cocoa powder together and then sieve into your mixture, before carefully folding it in. Once everything is combined you can put the mix into the tin and smooth it down. Put the tin into the oven for 15 minutes at first, and whilst it is in, cut your creme eggs in half, this is easier to do when they have had an hour or so in the fridge. After the 15 minutes is up, remove the tin and carefully place your creme egg halves onto the brownies, spacing them evenly apart. Then put this back into the oven for a further 20 minutes. Once the time is up you will want to remove the brownies and allow them to cool completely, before cutting them into 12 brownies.

It's as simple as that to make this delicious treat. The brownie itself is rich and gooey, and the creme egg adds an extra sweetness that makes these extra special. I've already eaten two of these and am resisting running out and grabbing another out of the tin, they are really moreish!

Have you baked anything with Cadbury's Creme Eggs, let me know in the comments?
