You know when Target puts Easter candy out on February 15th? I can’t even get mad at that because I am totally crazy about Cadbury Eggs. I don’t discriminate either. Whether it be Cadbury Chocolate Mini Eggs or Crème Eggs, I have to have them. I try to only buy the “single serving” bag of the Mini Eggs out of fear for eating an ENTIRE bag.
I know I have been a little obsessed with brookies lately and truth be told, I have more that I haven’t even shown you. Once I find a new dessert, I sort of obsess over it for while, make a few versions of it and then move on. Have you seen my Thin Mint Brookies or my Marshmallow Oreo Brookies?
The brookie I have today is…wait for it…. Cadbury Stuffed Brookies. First, the layer of brownies on the bottom is packed with mini Cadbury Crème Eggs. Second, the chocolate chip cookie has a whole bag of smashed Cadbury Chocolate Mini Eggs. I can’t decide which layer I like better.
For the brownie layer, I chose to use the MINI version of the Cadbury Crème Eggs, you know the ones that are the size of a Peanut M&M? That way, I can easily pack the cookie dough layer over the top. When baked, the eggs melt slightly but still hold their shape. I love it! For the cookie dough layer, I smashed a bag of Chocolate Mini Eggs and mixed them right into the cookie dough batter. The ones I used were the white chocolate version, but I think I prefer the milk chocolate version myself. The food processor didn’t work for me, so I actually used a rolling pin to smash them.
