Ingredients

  • 4 oz 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2.5 oz chopped dark chocolate
  • a handful or about 7 oz mini eggs

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325ºF. Line an 8x8" baking dish with parchment paper, leaving a bit of overhang at the sides.
  • Melt butter in a large microwave-safe bowl in the microwave on high power for about a minute. Use a fork to stir in cocoa powder until completely blended, then fork-whisk in sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and flour. Stir in chopped chocolate.
  • Use a spoon to spread the stiff batter into the parchment-lined baking dish, then sprinkle mini eggs evenly over top. Bake for about 30 minutes, until centre is firm but still has a bit of give. Let cool at least 10 minutes in pan before lifting out brownies by the parchment paper.
