Milk Chocolate Cadbury Mini Egg Brownies


Milk Chocolate Cadbury Mini Egg Brownies

Has spring arrive for you all? Other than the spring winds, we've only had a few peeks of spring here and there. I still wear my winter coat in the mornings and have gotten away a little bit with not wearing a coat or sweater in the afternoons.

It just doesn't seem like spring to me this year. I think I might have said something similar to this last year... but if you think about last year, I'm doing much better with my spring/Easter baking than last year! This is my second post with a spring-y dessert and I have a few more that I'm planning on sharing if all things go as planned!

These brownies are from Bakeaholic Mama and are incredibly cute and festive. These are milk chocolate brownies to complement the milk chocolate eggs. This recipe also uses Greek yogurt which adds a little bit of tang to the brownies as well, which were quite moist and yummy. I didn't make any alterations to this recipe though it looks like I used much more chopped candy eggs. I measured after I chopped the candy eggs, which might be why there looks like more. My candy also didn't sink into the brownie and stayed mostly on top of the brownies (I just pressed them into the batter only slightly just so they don't fall off when eating), which I thought made them beautiful.

You could easily change up the candy in this recipe (I've already got some plans!) or you could even use a different brownie recipe. Like dark chocolate? Use a different brownie recipe. Don't want to make the brownies from scratch? Use a boxed mix. Carrie/Bakeaholic Mama originally used a blondie recipe version of this recipe. I don't think you can really go wrong!

Happy Easter and happy eating! Maybe spring will arrive this weekend too!





Fatty doesn't understand she can't have brownies!
