How to Make These Brownies

Start by preheating your oven to 350F and line a 9×9 baking pan with parchment paper. The parchment paper should over hang on the edges slightly to allow you to easily remove the brownies from the pan.

Chop the bakers chocolate and place in a microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave by stopping and stirring the chocolate in 20 second increments.

In a large mixing bowl combine melted butter and sugar and whisk by hand until smooth. I like to mix it for a good 2-3 minutes. Add in the eggs and vanilla and continue to mix. You want to mix vigorously, doing so breaks down the eggs and will give the brownies a shiny top.

Pour in the melted chocolate and whisk until mixture is well combined. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Using a rubber spatula mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined. Do not over mix.

Fold in the chocolate mini eggs. Pour batter into the lined pan and spread evenly. Top with some extra mini eggs, press them slightly into the batter.

Bake for 25 minutes or until the middle is set. You do not want to over bake the brownies. Let the brownies fully cool into the pan before slicing.

Tips for Making Perfect Brownies

  • Line your pan with parchment paper. This keeps the brownies from sticking to the pan and lets use easily remove them for slicing.
  • Use room temperature eggs. Room temperature eggs break down easier and blend into the batter better.
  • Once eggs are added whisk vigorously for a few minutes. This is what creates the shiny layer on top of the brownies.
  • After the dry ingredients are added only mix till there are no more flour streaks. Over mixing causes dense brownies.
  • Do not over bake. With brownies you want them on the underdone side compared to overdone.

Bake them for Easter or for a Spring treat, either way I’m sure you’ll love with these Easter Mini Egg Brownies!
