Cadbury Egg Brownies are the perfect brownies for Easter. They taste just like those fabulous Cadbury Creme Eggs you can only buy this time of year. They have a rich, fudgy brownie layer on the bottom covered by two layers of creamy stuff just like you would find in a Cadbury Creme Egg. On top is a layer of chocolate ganache to make them look more striking and taste more wonderful.
To simplify things, I used a box of brownie mix for the brownie layer. I used Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix, but you could use any brownie mix.
The creamy filing is made from light corn syrup, butter, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar. Half of it gets colored yellow with food coloring.
The filling layers can be a little hard to work with and spread because they are very thick. But have patience and don’t worry about getting it all the way to the edges. You’ll want to spread the first layer on, then refrigerate it to get it to set up before you spread the second layer on. Same thing before you add the chocolate ganache.
These Cadbury Egg Brownies are best kept in the refrigerator to help keep the creamy filling set up.
