Cadbury Mini Egg Cookie Dough Brownie

Happy Spring! Well….almost. Though it’s still chilly in parts of the world, we can smell spring…it’s very near. Today I’m sharing a most delicious spring treat we’ve just experimented with at my house, Cadbury Mini Egg Cookie Dough Brownies!  If you’re like me, your heart skips a beat when there is an initial sighting at the store of the deep purple bag with pastel eggs inside. The chalky outer shell with the milky chocolate inside. Behold, our treat:

But wait, thats not all. It’s the 10th day of the month, so I’ve gathered my creative blogging friends, and we came up with a PASTEL theme to create projects around, since SPRING is upon us!  This begins our 11th month with the blog hop collaboration. We had so much fun with it the past 10 months, we decided to take it another round. One friend needed to part ways, so we added the amazingly talented Chelsea from Two Twenty One to the mix. If you’ve missed the past ten months of fun, please check them out!

For now, get into the spring mode with PASTELS!

Isn’t that some amazing-ness???  I love my creative friends, and I love to see what they come up with each month around our theme–it’s so fun!


Now back to my recipe.

It’s quite simple, you see.

You take a brownie base and spread it in the bottom of a pan (homemade or from a pan). Then sporadically place those delectable Cadbury Mini Eggs, and cook the brownie. Then drop heaping spoonfuls of egg-less cookie dough and gently spread it all around. I mixed in some pink pastel chips (chopped up melted wafers) along with my fave white chocolate chips. Below are my helpers, inspired by the promise of sampling the mini eggs at the end.

Yes, I made three pans because I was assigned to make birthday treats this month for the girls at church. Each second Sunday we celebrate the month of birthdays and the leaders rotate who makes the treats.

I was kinda bummed that the Cadbury Mini Eggs sunk into the brownie, and even when cut it was hard to tell they were in there, but they are there a-plenty.

  11. Why is the butter divided in the ingredient list? I don’t see why it needs to be divided in the directions. These look so good but so bad at the same time!

  12. Yummy! I love how you got the kids involved :)! Can’t wait for my little helper to grow up a bit so we can have fun in the kitchen (he’s just 8 months old now). Thanks for sharing this at my Facebook Milestone Link Party :)!
