chocolate bunny brownies

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.

Prep time

Total time
Recipe type: Baking
Serves: 12
What you'll need
  • 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
  1. Break up the bunnies and place in a glass bowl with cubed butter.
  2. Melt in microwave for about 3 minutes on medium/medium high until chocolate and butter are both melted
  3. Stir in sugar and mix well. Add in the eggs, mix well then the cointreau
  4. Sift in the flour and gently combine
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. When cool slice and enjoy



  1. Very yummy, Retro Mummy!! x

  2. Yum, those brownies look good. I melted down some huge white choc bunnies to make rocky road.

    I am impressed that you can make your own icing and caster sugar. Very handy.

  3. I made brownies over the weekend but they were a bit of a flop. I discovered I didn’t have any baking soda at a crucial point so I used self raising four instead of baking soda and plain flour. Not such a success.

    • oh yes I did the same thing, they were really dry!!!! mixture of plain and SR or even a bit of bicarb with the plain flour will do the trick! dont worry you won’t do that again:)

  4. What a great way to use up your stash! Or the kids stash :) Will have to bookmark this one for when we celebrate Easter :)

  5. They look absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe! I was simply planning on stuffing my face with eggs and bunnies until I exploded chocolate all over the house, but this is a far more refined idea!!
    Cheers, Jess x

  8. looks delicious.

  9. YUM! What a way to enjoy your easter bunnies. Definitely going to delve into the stash for this one!

    This is a great recipe to use up the not so great tasting chocolate eggs… You know the ones that are no brand name or came from a cheapie shop. Thanks for sharing Corrie!

  11. You just saved me – I have two full fridge shelves of easter chocolate. It is ridiculous! I think I may need to have a talk with our family about limits next year!

    • I’m thinking a small book or a $2 coin from relatives next year! this was crazy and they’re not interested in the chocolate anymore:)

  12. Perfect!!! Thanks so much corrie. We have far too many eggs and we are entertaining AND I just a thermomix. It’s wonderful. Been baking bread and I love the gluten free bread. Finally found one I like! Bring on those thermomix recipes. Thank you

    • are you loving it? I just love mine! so glad to hear you got one, I know I bang on about it but it really is amazing!

  13. Hello, I’ve just discovered your blog and I couldn’t go further through your archives without complimenting you on how beautiful your website is! So many beautiful images giving an insight into your life. Your blog is a wonderful tribute to your creativity and your love for your family.

    PS the brownies look delicious too!

    Yum! I am a big fan of brownies, what a great idea to use up the Easter chocolate in that way. And I like the optional extra of cointreau, never would have thought to put that in! xo

  15. mmmm! Just what I need! Can’t wait to downsize the chocolate stash – even if it is to make something equally wicked!!

  16. Katherine says:

    Thanks for such a great recipe Corrie. It was easy to make and there was enough to fill 2 slice tins. I made these to have for dessert on a Cub Pack Holiday last weekend (using ordinary Cooking Choc, because I had no stash) and the Cubs loved them!! They go fabulously with ice cream, choc topping and sprinkles :)

  17. So is that one and a quarter cup plain flour, or just a quarter cup flower?

  18. Sorry, flour**
