Rich, chewy, and speckled with pastel-colored chocolate cadbury mini eggs for a festive touch, a tray of these deliciously fudgy Easter brownies are a delightful dessert for any Easter Sunday gathering. 


Units Scale
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon espresso powder (optional)
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract*
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups cadbury mini eggs, roughly chopped*


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease or prepare a 9X13 baking dish with parchment paper (I also like to grease the parchment paper). 
  2. In a standing mixer (or large mixing bowl), whisk together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Add eggs, vanilla, sea salt and espresso powder if using. Whisk until fully combined, about 2 minutes.
  4. Fold in flour and cocoa powder until combined, scraping down sides and bottom of bowl as needed. 
  5. Fold 1 cup of the chopped cadbury mini eggs into the mixture until just combined.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared dish. Evenly sprinkle the top with the remaining chopped cadbury mini eggs.
  7. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until middle is set and a toothpick comes out clean (a few specks of baked, cake-like batter is fine, just not liquid batter).
  8. Remove from heat and let cool completely on a wire rack before slicing. 


For deeper flavor: instead of 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, you can use 1 teaspoon of vanilla paste and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

I used half milk chocolate cadbury mini eggs and half dark chocolate cadbury mini eggs. Use whichever one or whatever ratio you prefer!
