Cadbury Mini Egg Blondies



This is a wonderful recipe but let me caution you about a few things. Like I said before, these are wonderful, but they are super rich. The original recipe suggests 2 cups of Cadbury eggs which to me was way over the top. I personally think that 1 cup is plenty. I like sweet but that is just painfully sweet.

This recipe also suggest an 8x8 pan or a 9x9 pan. I personally found this makes the brownies too thick. If you are looking for large cake brownies then those would be great pans but next time I would try something bigger like a 9x13 pan.
The dough is very hard to spread so don’t be surprised by that, and be sure to watch your baking time. Mine were so thick in a 9x9 pan that they took forever to cook, then when they were finally cooked they were terribly dried out.

I think this recipe is great but I also think it could use a lot of adapting to make it just right. Personally if you were in a hurry you could get a nice boxed brownie mix and follow the instructions and just add the Cadbury Eggs. Although not homemade it would be much easier and probably just as good!
