Last Thursday we made some tasty Easter treats!
This included chocolate brownies with an Easter twist! Once the brownies were nearly ready we took them out the oven and pushed in caramel and malteser chocolate eggs, then put them back in for 5 minutes so they would melt into the brownie!
Whilst we were waiting for the brownies to cook we also made some chocolate nests!
These are really simple to make; melt some chocolate in a bowl over boiling water, then add cornflakes! We also added marshmallows and digestives biscuits to ours 🙂 We then popped some M&M eggs on the top to finish off the nest look!
Both were absolutely delicious and between us a lot of chocolate was eaten!
- 125 g butter
- 1 1/2 cups caster sugar
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup plain flour
- Melt the butter in a medium saucepan.
- Stir in sugar, cocoa, vanilla and salt.
- Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
- Quickly whisk in eggs.
- Fold through sifted flour.
- Spoon the mixture into a greased and lined 18 x 28cm slab tin.
- Bake at 170C for 25-30 minutes.
- The mixture will seem soft but will harden on cooling.
- Allow to cool in tin before removing.
For an Easter twist, take the brownie out the oven after 20/25 minutes and push chocolate eggs into it and bake for a further 5 minutes so they can melt into the brownie!
