Easy. This recipe use one bowl and is done by hand. Making these an easy to make Easter dessert.
How to Make These Brownies
Start by preheating your oven to 350F and line a 8×8 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 well combined. This usually takes 2-3 minutes. Add in the eggs and vanilla. Vigorously whisk until mixture is light and colour and has volume. This usually takes a good 5 minutes.
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 28 minutes or until the middle is set. Let the brownies fully cool into the pan before slicing.
Storing the Brownies
Store brownies in an airtight container at room temperature, they keep for well for four days after baking.
Do I Need to Use Room Temperature Eggs?
Yes, you do. Room temperature eggs allows the eggs to break down easier in the batter. It also allows more air to enter the eggs while whisking.
How Do I Get a Shiny Brownie Top?
The shiny top comes from breaking down the eggs. Once you add your room temperature eggs into the batter whisk vigorously for a good 5 minutes. The batter will become light in colour and thicker in viscosity.
Tips for Making Perfect Brownies
- Line your pan with parchment paper. This keeps the brownies from sticking to the pan and allows you 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.
