My Easter Creme Egg Brownies Recipe

I'm aware it's insane the amount of brownies I've made recently, I just can't help it. They're one of the easiest bakes, very rarely go wrong and you can do so many things with them. Since finding the perfect brownie recipe I've added things like Bourbon Biscuits, Lotus Biscoff, After Eights, Jaffa Cakes and Oreos and now with Easter on the way, I really wanted to incorporate some Easter chocolate into my bakes. I've already shared my Mini Egg cookie slices in case you haven't seen and today I'm sharing my recipe for Creme Egg brownies. Yeah they're pretty similar to all of my brownie recipes and I know recipes for these get shared year after year but I still wanted to post my own, so here it is and I hope you enjoy if you give them a try!
Creme Egg brownies in cake tin
Ingredients:
100g butter
200g golden caster sugar
200g dark chocolate, broken into chunks
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
100g plain flour
6 Creme Eggs, halved

Method:
1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees (160 fan) and grease and line a large square baking tin
2. Put your butter and sugar into a large saucepan and warm over a medium heat until the the butter has completely melted and the sugar has started to dissolve
3. Take the saucepan off the heat and add in your 200g of dark chocolate chunks, stirring until completely melted 
4. Add in your vanilla extract and mix again
5. Add in your two eggs then using an electric whisk if possible, whisk until you have a thick velvety batter
6. Sift in your plain flour then fold in gently until fully combined
7. Pour your brownie batter into your prepared tin and bake in the oven for 20 minutes initially
8. After 20 minutes, remove the tin from the oven and add your halved Creme Eggs, pushing into the mix slightly. You could cut into smaller pieces and scatter if you prefer but I tried to do mine as neatly as possible
9. Return to the oven for a further 25 minutes
10. Once cooked, leave to cool in the tin then remove and cut into squares!

I'm not gonna lie and say these are the prettiest bake I've ever made because they're not but I'm still really glad I finally gave them a go and they tasted delicious which is the most important thing. The Creme Eggs did explode a little making them harder to cut and next time I'd maybe experiment with adding them at a later stage just to only melt them slightly but it's all part of the fun. I'm obsessed with Creme Eggs so adding them to my already fave gooey brownies was a winning combination.
