Ingredients

For the Cookie Dough Layer

  • ¾ cup (170g) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup (165g) packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons (60g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups + 2 tablespoons (254g) all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ + 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup (180g) white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles 
  • 1 bag (2oz) Cadbury Mini Eggs

For the Brownie Layer

  • 6 ounces dark chocolate, melted
  • ¾ cup (170g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 ½ cups (285g) granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup (105g) all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup (84g) dutch-processed cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • 24 Cadbury Mini Creme Eggs (2 packages)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13-inch pan and line the bottom and sides with parchment paper. Allow the butter to soften for at least 20 minutes.

For the cookie dough

  1. Combine the softened butter with the brown and granulated sugar. Beat on medium speed until well combined, 2-3 minutes.
  2. Next add the egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract and continue beating until well incorporated.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir to combine and slowly add the dry ingredients into the dough, mixing at low speed until the dough starts to form. Before the dough thickens, add the chocolate chips and sprinkles. Beat until incorporated. Set aside.

For the brownie layer

  1. Chop the chocolate into smaller pieces and melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl for approximately 2 minutes at 50% power. Stir occasionally and microwave until completed melted and smooth. Set aside to cool.
  2. Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl and combine with the granulated sugar; beat together until well combined.
  3. Next add the egg and egg yolk and beat for 60 seconds at a higher speed until the batter is fluffy (it should resemble a cake batter).
  4. Then add the vanilla extract and melted chocolate and beat until combined.
  5. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and stir to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the batter and mix just until combined.

Assembly & Baking

  1. Pour the prepared brownie batter in the bottom of the pan. Then unwrap and lay out the Mini Cadbury Eggs, gently pressing to the brownie batter.
  2. Then take large pieces of the cookie dough and press it flat with your hands, then press it into the brownie batter. Continue to layer all the remaining cookie dough. Place Cadbury Mini Eggs on top of the cookie dough, gently pressing into the dough.
  3. Bake at 350°F for 35-40 minutes. I suggestcovering with aluminum foil after 15-20 minutes to prevent too much browning on top. Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center. The brownie should be a little fudgy but not wet. Cool for at least 1 -2 hours before slicing.

Notes

  • The best way to prepare this recipe is prepare the cookie dough first, because the longer the brownie batter sits, the thicker it becomes.
  • Baking times will vary by oven and type of pan used. Do not overcook or they will be dry. Instead, pull them out of the oven and allow them to finish baking as it cools. 
  • How to prevent these bars from sticking: Spraying the pan with cooking spray and then lining it with parchment paper will help to remove the parchment paper more easily.
  • Melted Chocolate for brownies: I recommend using a high-quality baking bar such as Ghirardelli or Lindt. They melt down much smoother. These are best with dark chocolate, but any type of melted chocolate will work. 6 ounces is equivalent to approximately ¾ cups of chocolate chips.
  • Cocoa Powder for brownies: I highly recommend using a dutch-processed cocoa powder like Rodelle or Hershey’s Special Dark for the best flavor. 
  • Freezing instructions: Place these in an airtight container or Ziploc bag with a layer of parchment paper in between.
