Easter Mini Egg Brownies

Those of you who know me know I have given up chocolate for Lent, so every time I come up with a chocolatey delight it has been torturous. I haven't even cut these brownies before giving them away as I couldn't trust myself.
175g melted dark chocolate
100g unsalted butter
300g vanilla sugar or caster and a teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 eggs
125g plain flour
75g S/R flour
300g mini eggs (freeze for at least 3 hours before using to keep the colour)

Grease and line 8x8 inch tin preheat the oven to 170

Melt chocolate and butter in the microwave or in a bowl over a saucepan of hot water, give a good stir. 

Mix in sugar and vanilla extract, add eggs, sift in the flours. 

Fold in 200g of the mini eggs

Bake in oven for 15 mins and then stud the top with the remaining 100g mini eggs bake for another 15 mins

 Leave until completely cold before cutting.

*Freeze the eggs before using to help stop them cracking

*If you prefer a firm more cakey brownie bake for 25 mins before adding the remaining mini eggs, then for the further 15 minutes after.
HAPPY EASTER xxx
