Creme Eggs seem to be dominating the Easter food scene this year, so this is a recipe to give Mini Eggs their moment in the spotlight. I've bought at least a bag a week since they appeared in the shops in late January - the bite sized, crunchy shelled eggs are just too addictive. When you combine pastel coloured chocolate with dark, fudgy chocolate brownies, you're surely onto a winner.
If you need extra incentive to jump up and bake this traybake, the Mini Eggs are baked straight into the brownie, so the middles melt into a little pool of molten chocolate. Drizzling the top with yet more melted chocolate may seem excessive, but hey, it's Easter, so it's allowed.
This is my fudgiest, chewiest, richest brownie recipe that makes shiny topped brownies every time. You can add all kind of Easter chocolate to the top instead of Mini Eggs, but if they don't have a sugar shell (like Creme Eggs or caramel filled eggs) I'd recommend pushing them in halfway through the cooking time.
