Oozy Chocolate Egg Brownie
Square Cake Tins will ensure that the gooey goodness of the Creme Egg don’t ooze out to create a mess whilst this humble brownie raises the classic dessert to new heights. We like to think of Creme Eggs like Graham Norton they just raise everyone else’s game and makes everything better around them.
Sticking with the chocolate egg theme we move on to the cousin of the Creme Egg, the Mini Egg. This is another Easter weapon you can break out for your cooking. We have found a couple of fun ideas for you to try:
