This recipe goes out to everyone who has chocolate easter eggs or bunnies coming out of their ears. We are surrounded with chocolate. And I was looking through my books for a few recipes I could use and just decided to change my chocolate brownie recipe to use up some chocolate. Some of you probably can’t even look at chocolate this morning but the kids could and loved this recipe today.
and I think this photo needs a bit of explanation, this is my own raw caster sugar made in the Thermomix. Yes, you can buy your own raw caster sugar but let me tell you that I love doing my own caster and icing sugar and not have 50 million types of sugar in the pantry. Just raw sugar. Ok back to the photos
Enjoy……………….this made a bit of a dent in the chocolate stash in our house today.
- 400-450g chocolate easter eggs/bunnies (hollow)
- 250g unsalted butter
- 1 cup raw caster sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1Tbsp cointreau (optional)
- 1 cup SR flour
- 1¼ cup plain flour
- Break up the bunnies and place in a glass bowl with cubed butter.
- Melt in microwave for about 3 minutes on medium/medium high until chocolate and butter are both melted
- Stir in sugar and mix well. Add in the eggs, mix well then the cointreau
- Sift in the flour and gently combine
- Pour into a lined or greased tin and bake in a preheated 160C/320F oven for 30 minutes until top is crispy. I did this in a silicon pan so don't grease the silicone or it gets too greasy.
- Remove from oven and leave to cool completely. This is the important step. It will be really crumbly if you don't. So leave it. Just walk away. I know you want to eat it
- When cool slice and enjoy
