With Easter around the corner and shedload of recipes on the web using either Mini or Creme Eggs already, I felt it was my responsibility to you my lovely readers to jump on the bandwagon and share my White Chocolate & Mini Egg Blondies. 😉 You’re welcome!
I based this recipe on my White Chocolate & Almond Blondies with Raspberries which has been really popular on the blog. These Easter themed blondies don’t contain any almonds as the previous recipe and are definitely less light and cakey but more brownie-like, dense and stodgy (in a very good way). 🙂
Initially, I couldn’t quite decide whether to use whole Mini Eggs or bash them about a bit. I decided on giving them whack or two and I’m glad I did. Crushed Mini Eggs can be distributed through blondie batter more evenly plus you never know what you’re gonna get with your next bite. Is it going to be a whole egg, the chocolatey middle or a sweet shell? To top it all off, there is a generous sprinkle of white chocolate chips on the top of the blondies, just cause I felt like it! lol
Despite all that chocolate these blondies aren’t overly sweet and sickly. They really aren’t! I started baking with 200g of Mini Eggs at hand but by the time it came to bashing them with the rolling pin, I only had 150g left. Ooops! We felt (myself and my little helpers and personal tasters) that this quantity was quite adequate but by all means feel free to adjust it to your preferences.
It is such a quick and easy bake and brilliant one to do with your kiddies too as it doesn’t require fancy machinery and your only tools are a heatproof bowl and a wooden spoon! I do highly recommend melting the white chocolate in the heatproof bowl over the pan of lightly simmering water as opposed to in the microwave as you can be more in control. My bitter experience with white chocolate and microwave is exactly that – bitter as I burn it every time!!! Do what you would normally do though, that’s just my experience.
One last advice would be make sure you stock up on Mini Eggs!!! I can’t stress it enough lol (especially if you are baking with your kiddos)! I think the reason why is pretty self-explanatory. 😉
Now, without further ado!
Irresistible White Chocolate & Mini Eggs Blondies! They are soo good, even one of the Mini Eggs went rogue and decided to help itself! 😉
