    Hey all, I just made some brownies using Creme Eggs, and they're bloody tasty. So I thought I'd share it with you. Creme Eggs only come once a year so bake it while they're around.

    Ingredients:
    • 6 Creme Eggs,
    • 450g of plain chocolate,
    • 45g of sugar,
    • 140g of plain flour,
    • 125g of butter,
    • 4 medium/large eggs,
    • 1/2 a teaspoon of salt,
    • 3/4 of a teaspoon of baking powder,


    Method:
    1. Set the oven up at 170 degrees Celsius and grease a pan with butter for your mix later.
    2. Mix flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl.
    3. Melt butter, the creme eggs and chocolate together. Best way to do it is using a double boiler.
    4. Whisk in the sugar. Hopefully you should have a silky mix, but don't worry if you don't, it'll smooth out later.
    5. Leave the chocolate mix to cool slightly, then mix in the actual eggs one by one. This is to make sure the eggs don't cook in the mix.
    6. After this, fold in the flour/salt/baking powder mix in thirds.
    7. You're ready to pour your mix into the tray, pour it into the centre of the tray and make sure it's level from corner to corner. If it isn't just drop the tray from a small height to even it out. Then put it in the oven for roughly half an hour.
    8. Leave the brownies to cool on a cooling rack for about an hour, this gives it time to firm up. Then cut up and enjoy like a boss.
    9. Thank me later.

    A part of me thinks that sounds really tasty but wouldn't all that fondant kind of mess the mixture up?

    Not at all actually, I thought it would too lol. It actually turns up perfect at the end of it. Most of the chocolate comes from the plain chocolate so it's not as sickly as you might think either.

    They sound really good. The only things I need to in order to make them is every single ingredient and something to cook it in.

    No problem they're extremely rich though, but what can you expect from something with 6 creme eggs in it

    Considering I'm on a diet it was a really bad idea to open this thread, because it sounds REALLY lush! :'(

    Sounds interesting. Part of me thinks 'oooooh that sounds really yummy'. The other part thinks 'ewww that sounds sweet sticky and sickly (the bad kind of sweet sticky and sickly)'.
