White Chocolate & Mini Eggs Blondies

White Chocolate & Mini Eggs Blondies

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

White Chocolate & Mini Eggs Blondies

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!

White Chocolate & Mini Eggs Blondies

Yield: 12-16 squares

Ingredients

  • 150g white chocolate
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 125g light brown sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 150g plain flour (sieved)
  • 150-200g Cadbury's Mini Eggs
  • 50g white chocolate chips
  • Pinch of salt
    Square tin 23x23cm (9x9inch) or similar lined with baking paper that overhangs on two sides. It will make removal of blondies from the tin a real doddle.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Melt 150g of white chocolate and butter in bain-marie (heatproof bowl placed over a pan with simmering water). Make sure the bowl doesn't touch the water. Once melted remove from the heat and let the mixture cool a bit.
  3. Add brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract and mix vigorously with a wooden spoon until combined.
  4. Add sieved flour and salt and mix well until incorporated.
  5. Put Mini Eggs in the plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin. Add them to the mixture and fold in gently.
  6. Spoon mixture onto prepared baking tin and sprinkle over some white chocolate chips.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for about 25 min or until toothpick comes out clean but centre is still soft.
  8. Let it cool before removing from the tin.
  9. Cut into squares (12 or 16).
  10. Enjoy!

    These look delicious Jo! I do have that same problem whenever I get mini eggs though – I never have quite as many in the bake as I’d planned and if I don’t hide them before I use them then there are usually none left. My husband and kids love them! Thanks so much for sharing with #CookOnceEatTwice x

      Thanks Corina! 🙂 It’s funny how that happens isn’t it? 😉 One thing I find interesting when it comes to Mini Eggs is despite the fact we all love them I only tend to buy them around Easter time and hardly ever at other times. I suppose it might be my way of sharing the love amongst all the other treats and trying not to overindulge. lol x

    It’s so hard to come up with new Easter recipes because it seems to be the time of year when people bake the most! These look so yummy. I’ve never made blondies and seeing recipes like yours makes me realise I need to get baking!

      Thanks Cat! 🙂 It is so hard to come up with original bakes around Easter isn’t it! It’s all about chocolate and Mini or Creme Eggs lol. We do love blondies, my kids especially, and make them as often if not more than brownies. It’s definitely worth giving them a go 🙂 x

      Thanks Donna! 🙂 I ask myself that question all the time when I see certain recipes on other bloggers’ pages lol These are really yummy and moreish and very brownie-like in their dense texture so I’m pretty sure they would go down a treat 🙂 x

    What a lovely decadent Easter treat! My kids would LOVE to make these. Sadly being my children they’ll most likely be helping me make low sugar hot cross buns instead!!

      Lol thanks Mandy! 🙂 I do like the sound of your low sugar hot cross buns plus there must be a balance when it comes to indulgent treats (even around Easter) so it’s all good 🙂
