Milk Chocolate Cadbury Mini Egg Brownies



The day after Christmas, Walmart started selling Cadbury Mini Eggs and other Easter favorites. To some they were annoyed. "Can't we have Valentines Day first? Or at least take down the Christmas Trees?"

Not me! I welcome it. I could bypass all of the Valentines Day treats for a couple extra months of Cadbury Bunny deliveries. It has been SO hard to hold off posting treats that include my all time favorite candy. I LIVE or those candy coated chocolates. (A tad dramatic I know... I just really really really love them!)

Last year I shared some blondie cookie bars filled with mini eggs that were a huge hit. Today they are my #2 viewed post of all time. So I guess I am not alone in my love for mini eggs.

The brownies I have today are the best fudge brownie recipe you will ever make. It is true. I am not just tooting my own horn. They really are THE. BEST. You really can't tell if they are brownies or fudge. They are dense, chocolaty, and then have the nice crinkly top you want in a brownie. To take them up a notch I tossed in a left over mini egg bag I had up in the cupboard. I knew if I did not get rid of those eggs soon I was going to eat them all. By putting them in the brownies... I could share the mini egg love. The brownies would then be cut up and sent to my husbands work. It was a win for his employees... and a win for my waistline.

If I had it my way I would have included WAY more mini eggs,  the written recipe has calls for a tad more than pictured here. Trust me when I say more is more when it comes to Cadbury chocolate!



Milk Chocolate Cadbury Mini Egg Brownies

Ingredients:

1 cup of butter 
3 oz chopped milk chocolate
1/2 cup unsweetened coco powder
1  1/4 cups of sugar
3 eggs
2 tbs vanilla extract
1/4 a cup of plain Greek yogurt.
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp salt

1 cup chopped Milk Chocolate Cadbury Mini Eggs 

Directions:

In a small sauce pan melt butter and milk chocolate together. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

In a medium mixing bowl mix sugar, eggs and vanilla extract together. Whisk in the butter mixture. Using a rubber spatula mix in flour and salt. Once combined fold in Greek yogurt.

In a parchment paper lined 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish spread brownie batter on the bottom. Sprinkle chopped mini eggs on the top. Bake at 350 for about 30-40 minutes. Or until a tooth pick is inserted and comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before slicing.
