Happy Easter Sweet Honeybee's

As Easter is just a few days away I thought I'd share another of my favourite festive recipes with you! 
This is a great time of year for baking sweet treats and I never met anyone who didn't like Creme eggs so these brownies are sure to go down well with friends & family!

These are easy to bake but are a really different idea so you can be sure they will be a firm favourite for Easter's to come :) 
I have made brownies before, but these have to be my all time favourites! They are crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, gooey from the Creme Eggs and oh-so chocolatey! They're a great alternative gift rather than store bought Easter eggs and are just so tempting - my mouth is watering thinking about them!

Lets start with what You're gonna need;

. 280g Chocolate chips (I used Milk but you can use Dark if you prefer!)
. 1 Cup Butter
. 4 eggs
. 1 1/4 cups sugar
. 2 teaspoons vanilla
. 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
. 1/2 teaspoon salt
. Atleast 5 Creme Eggs

Once you've gathered all these, you're ready to go!

Before you do anything, Preheat your oven to 160C/Gas3/325F.
Lets start by melting the chocolate chips and butter on a low heat or over a double boiler. Make sure you keep stirring it so that it doesn't over heat and curdle, it should stay nice and liquidy! Once it is ready take it off of the heat, pour it into a bowl and let it cool to room temperature (but don't let it harden!)

while the chocolate is cooling, mix together the eggs and the sugar in a separate bowl until they are light, then add in the vanilla and the salt and stir until combined.
Then you can gradually add in the flour, a little at a time until it is all combined thoroughly!

Next, slowly add the cooled chocolate into the mixture and gently stir until it is fully combined! Ohh it just smells so gooood!
Then its a good idea to grease your baking tin - you can use whichever depth one you like, I don't really measure the depth, just go with what looks good :)

You need to pop the mixture into the oven for 15 minutes and then remove it - it will still be soft and not cooked all the way through but don't panic, this is how its supposed to be!

Once you have removed the brownie from the oven you can chop your Creme eggs into half and spread them out evenly on the surface of the brownie, just push them in a tiny bit - not so much that they are submerged.
Now put the brownies back into the oven for another 15-18 minutes. You will know when they are cooked through because a toothpick inserted into them will come out with moist crumbs!

Allow your brownies to cool slightly and then cut them up into whichever size bars or squares you like! They are so yummy, warm or cool and you just cant stop at 1!

I hope you guys enjoyed this easy Easter recipe - If you want to see some more come on over to my Facebook page (here) and suggest me some ideas! I love a Challenge!
