These are an adaptation of my mom's one-pan brownie recipe, which is made a lot in my home because they are super easy to bake and you only have one spoon to wash (and a bowl if you make icing). Because there are only dry ingredients to measure, I don't even wash the measuring cups—I just wipe them out with a paper towel.

To make these Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies, I added a package of frozen Mini Cadbury Creme Eggs to the batter and made a Cadbury Creme Egg Icing from a couple of the larger Cadbury Creme Eggs. Using frozen chocolate eggs keeps them intact and prevents them from melting before the batter has set.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 300 grams Mini Cadbury Creme Eggs, frozen
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 2 regular-sized Cadbury Creme Eggs
  • (Optional) 2 regular-sized Cadbury Creme Eggs for garnishing the top

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F.
  2. Remove the wrappers from the mini eggs and place them back in the freezer.
  3. Place an oven-safe 8x8 baking pan on a burner on top of the stove on medium heat.
  4. Melt the butter, being careful not to let it burn.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat.
  6. Add the sugar and cocoa and mix.
  7. Stir in the eggs and vanilla.
  8. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix well.
  9. Place Mini Cadbury Creme Eggs about one inch apart, spaced evenly in the batter.
  10. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
  11. Make the icing: Blend the butter, Cadbury Creme Eggs and icing sugar with an electric hand mixer until smooth and creamy.
  12. Allow to cool completely before icing.
  13. Optional: Chop two more Creme Eggs to sprinkle on top.
  14. Cut into 16 pieces.

I hope you enjoy these Cadbury Creme Egg One Pan Brownies as much as my family did. Thank goodness Cadbury Creme Eggs are only available during the Spring, otherwise I would be tempted to bake these a little too often!

How good does this look? Yum!

Fay Favored from USA on April 21, 2014:

One recipe that I know will go over big. So good :) Wish I saw this earlier.

sGirl2 on April 21, 2014:

Not that there is anything as good as the original Creme Egg, but have you ever attempted this recipe with any of the other varieties of Cadbury Eggs? I never see the regular eggs in mini version but I always see the Caramel Eggs.

MarcellaCarlton on April 21, 2014:

This is going on my list for dessert next Easter. Sounds super delicious. Great lens.

thegembank on April 21, 2014:

i missed squidoo for a couple of days... but never too late for this one

Thomo85 on April 20, 2014:

Yum, I have made a similar one using mini Cadbury Caramello Koalas, It is truly delicious, will definitely give it a go with Creme eggs

Laura Hofman from Naperville, IL on April 20, 2014:

These sound decadent...but yummy!! I need to make these!

Rose Jones on April 20, 2014:

Also I lensrolled this lens to my own lens:https://hubpages.com/food/blond-brownies I went to a retreat once where the dessert was different kinds of brownies. Blond brownies, regular chocolate brownies - now I would bring these too!

Rose Jones on April 20, 2014:

This sound delicious! Pinned to my Easter and baking boards, and tweeted. Worth eating flour and sugar once a year. :)

PennyHowe on April 20, 2014:

You have me drooling. Here in Mexico it is not easy to find the Crabury Creme Eggs, so guess I will just have to look at your pictures! Thanks for sharing and Happy Easter.

anonymous on April 20, 2014:

Thanks a lot for the recipe Corrinna. Looks really yummy!

SofyBelle on April 20, 2014:

I made these brownies after reading your lens yesterday and wow, these are delicious!! My plan was to take them to my grandmother's house today for Easter lunch, but I just couldn't resist digging into them last night. Guess I'll just have to make another batch. :-) Thanks for the recipe! I am a baker as well, so I already had all the ingredients and who doesn't keep Cadbury eggs around at all times during the Easter season?

The recipe was very simple to make and I only had one spoon to wash just like you said! :-) Congrats on LotD!

DreyaB on April 20, 2014:

My parents always bought me creme eggs at Easter instead of larger Easter eggs we got from other family members and they were my favourite. I don't know if I dare try these brownies - I'm sure they'll be very dangerous to my hips! ;0)

JennAshton on April 19, 2014:

OOhhh lala that looks so gooey good!

PaigSr from State of Confusion on April 19, 2014:

Thanks Easter Bunny. Bawk Bawk. I have just been looking for a place to say that.

Elisa14 on April 19, 2014:

Looks delicious!

gianni340 on April 19, 2014:

If a recipe can be "cute", this is.

DebMartin on April 19, 2014:

Outstanding idea!

Delia on April 19, 2014:

Congratulations on LOTD! This looks so sweet, and just what I like...however for me, it screams cholesterol! One bite would be OK....well two bites ;-)

GrammieOlivia on April 19, 2014:

Oh I think I will die from a sweetness explosion.......what a way to go! These look and sound so decadent. I think I'm in love.....thanks for this great recipe!

Denise McGill from Fresno CA on April 19, 2014:

What a great idea to mix the ingredients right in the baking pan. I never would have thought of that because I would have thought they would stick to the bottom and need the pan greased and floured before pouring in the batter. Hmm. Must try.

anonymous on April 19, 2014:

Shared to my Facebook foodie page. First time I ever came across a recipe using Cadbury eggs. Looks scrumptious!

Mickie Gee on April 19, 2014:

I gained weight just by looking at this page about Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies!

Stephen J Parkin from Pine Grove, Nova Scotia, Canada on April 19, 2014:

Oh Oh! There could be a few more hyper active kids with sugar overload after this! As long as we keep the slices small I think this is a great Easter idea. Just as well the creme eggs are only available for a short time in the Spring!

OMG! trying today!

SofyBelle on April 19, 2014:

Oh wow! This looks so delicious!! I was looking for something to take to my grandmother's for Easter & this is perfect!! I'm heading to the kitchen at this very moment to start making these & I'm sure everyone will love them. Thank you for the recipe and congrats on LotD!!

AlleyCatLane on April 19, 2014:

OMG!!! I would have loved these! I always looked forward to Cadbury eggs and loved brownies. Health issues prevents me from eating chocolate now so I can't have these. But I am drooling!

Faye Rutledge from Concord VA on April 19, 2014:

Mmm, this looks so yummy! Since you have to freeze them anyway, buy extra bags of the Cadbury eggs and keep them in the freezer to make these brownies later. Of course, once a year is probably enough. :)

Karen317 on April 19, 2014:

I am sure I will make it

inkedwriter lm on April 19, 2014:

Oh my goodness....Just when I though my favorite candy couldn't get any better...thank you for sharing

Eugene Samuel Monaco from Lakewood New York on April 19, 2014:

I'm all about the chocolate!!! this looks like a great treat for me, thanks for sharing your recipe. I'll be sure to give this a try!!! Congratulations on LOTD!!!

Merry Citarella from Oregon's Southern Coast on April 19, 2014:

Congratulations on Lens of the Day! This looks spectacular. Who doesn't love Cadbury eggs?

anonymous on April 19, 2014:

Perfect Easter recipe. Congratulations on getting LotD!

TerriCarr on April 18, 2014:

The trick is to eat only a small piece. I dare not make these ;-)

Elsie Hagley from New Zealand on April 14, 2014:

This looks like a great easter treat. Thanks for the recipe.

Susan Deppner from Arkansas USA on April 07, 2014:

Wow! Two of my favorites together. I think I'm in Cabury Creme Egg heaven!

Monica Lobenstein from Western Wisconsin on April 06, 2014:

Oh. My. Goodness. I'm not sure which is more dangerous... that I could now make these brownies or that I know that mini Cadbury Creme Eggs exist. I just barely resisted buying some Creme Eggs at the grocery store today, but this could really do me in. Thanks (I think)! :)
