Mini Egg Blondes


Mini Egg Blondes

People ask me all the time; ‘What is a Blonde?’ Its basically the same as a brownie but made with white chocolate instead of dark chocolate, which gives it a light golden look!

I made Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies the other day. They tasted amazing!! I know I’m slightly bias, but I have to say my friends and family agreed with me too!! What could I do for my next recipe? I had some spare bags of mini eggs lying on my kitchen top. I could happily just sit and eat them, however, I wanted to bake, I was in the mood to bake! (Not sure when I’m not in the mood to bake?!) I thought how about blondes? Mini Egg Blondes? Perfect! I knew the brownies had gone down as a treat, so why not adapt that recipe and created blondes! After all they are very similar! Basically, this is how this recipe came together! 

This recipe is easy to follow, foolproof, perfect for anyone to have a go at! Why not make this perfect Easter treat? Have a go, send me photos, and let me know your thoughts are on it!

Ingredients:

200g White Chocolate

200g Unsalted Butter

  1. Preheat oven to 140 degrees.

  4. Pour the cooled chocolate and butter mixture into the egg mixture. Gently fold it in, be careful not to knock the air out of the egg mixture.
  5. Fold in the flour into the egg mixture, carefully, making sure you don’t knock any air out!
  6. Add 2 bags of mini eggs to the mixture and fold in gently, making sure your don’t knock any air out!
  7. Pour the mixture onto a greaseproof oven tray. 
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the reminding bag of mini eggs on top.
  10. Place back in the oven and bake for a further 15 – 20 minutes; until the blondes are a golden brown colour and not runny in the centre! 
  11. Leave to cool.
  12. Once cooled cut into squares and enjoy!
