Cadbury Egg Brownies
Since making our Homemade Cadbury Eggs for Easter, I have been excited to make some additional desserts with the easy filling. Layered brownies seemed perfect.
I started with a boxed brownie mix to keep this Easter dessert simple. I then layered in a layer of yellow goo and then white goo. The layers worked perfect just like you will find in a Cadbury Egg.
I then topped off our Cadbury Egg Brownies with pourable frosting. I used the heated frosting trick I used in my Boston Cream Poke Cake. I knew this trick would be perfect on these brownies.
Wow, was I right. I tossed my brownies in the freezer for a bit. I like to get my desserts that need cutting very cold to get perfect slices. After getting them set and sliced, the layers looked gorgeous. I plan to make a batch of these for our Easter dessert. We have quite a few family members who go crazy for Cadbury Eggs. I know these brownies will be perfect.
The recipe is so super simple. I used a good dark brownie mix to really get a nice color contrast. Then with some butter, corn syrup, vanilla, and powdered sugar, I created the Cadbury Egg filling layers. With a bit of yellow food coloring to half of the batch, I achieved the fun yellow coloring. The store bought frosting poured on top works perfect after a little bit of chill time.
