Caramel Egg Brownies

Happy Easter!

With so many chocolate temptations about at the moment it’s hard not to impulse buy a packet of chocolate eggs at every checkout! That’s my excuse anyway.

To help use up some of these potential impulse buys, I’ve created this chocolate caramel brownie recipe, that uses a packet of mini caramel eggs.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • 125g dark brown sugar
  • 225g extra dark chocolate
  • 100g butter
  • 100ml cooking oil
  • 100g plain flour
  • 25g cocoa powder

Method

  1. Using an electric whisk, beat the 3 eggs and 1 egg white with the sugar on a high level for at least 2 minutes until thick and pale.
  2. In a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water break up the dark chocolate, and add the butter and oil. Stir gently until all melted and combined. Remove from the heat and set to one side for approx 3 minutes.
  3. While waiting for the melted chocolate to cool slightly, sift the plain flour, salt and cocoa into a bowl.
  4. Gently fold the chocolate into the egg mixture, followed by the flour and fold all together.
  5. Pour into a lined baking tray, or greased silicone tray and dollop a few teaspoons of the caramel sauce randomly into the mixture.
  6. Bake in the oven on 150 'C for 15 minutes.
  7. While in the oven cut each mini caramel egg in half and set to one side, ready to position in the brownies.
  8. After 15 minutes remove the brownies from the oven and drizzle extra caramel sauce on top, then carefully place the caramel egg halves into the top crust of the brownie, spacing evenly.
  9. Place back in the oven for another 10 minutes.
  10. Remove and allow to cool completely overnight before cutting.
  11. Serve with an extra dollop of the caramel sauce.
