Candy Egg Blondie Brownies

The great thing about brownies is that they’re a cut above storebought treats, but you can make them with minimal effort. You can have them delicious, fresh and warm out of the oven without putting in too much time or fuss. Besides, who doesn’t love a plate of brownies? You can put a festive twist on these treats by adding some candy eggs into the mix. So, here is how to make them.

Start by preheating your oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Melt a cup of butter, pour it into a mixing bowl, and stir in 1/2 cup of sugar. Add 2 eggs, and stir until each ingredient is evenly incorporated. Then, in a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients: 2 cups of flour, 1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch, and 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry, and add your candy eggs, plus white chocolate chips if you like. Fold into your pan and bake for 30 minutes. You can enjoy them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or on their own.

Peeps S’mores

Another one of the best easy easter snacks are Peeps S’mores. Everyone loves a good s’more, and you can make them extra festive by including peeps as the marshmallow component. You can either make them individually, or as a pan. Set your oven to the broil setting, and then prepare your pan with a layer of crumbled graham crackers, followed by milk chocolate and then peeps. Leave them in for 1-2 minutes, just long enough for the chocolate to melt slightly, and then serve.

Easter Egg Strawberries

Here is the delicious easter edition of chocolate dipped strawberries. Portion white chocolate into several bowls, and then put each one in the microwave until it melts. Then, add food colouring – usually just a drop or two is best to achieve pastel colours. Dip your strawberries in the colour of your choosing. You can add further decoration by piping an additional colour into various patterns on top.
