When it comes to chocolate dessert, brownies are always a huge family favorite and these Easter brownies are going to be gone before you walk away.  Each bite is packed with layers of chocolate not to mention the candy surprise baked right inside.

Easter is a fun time of year and has a great meaning to our families life, so to be able to make an Easter dinner for my family and friends and serve yummy desserts like these Easter brownies is enjoyable for me.

Every year on Easter my Dad has a huge Easter egg hunt for all the kids and then one for the “big” kids.  We all look forward to it and then head to the table for an Easter feast.

However, there are some little feet that bypass the dinner portion and go directly to the dessert, and this year I know they will love sinking their teeth into these super fudgy Easter brownies.

Why are my brownies hard?

Be sure to not over mix your brownie batter and spray or coat the baking pan with nonstick cooking spray, shortening,  butter, or line with parchment paper to help prevent your brownies from getting hard.

  3. Pour in half the brownie batter into prepared baking pan and add 1 to 1-1/2 cups candy eggs (I used whopper robin eggs).  Cover with remaining brownie mix and bake for 45 minutes.   Let cool 5 minutes, then lift brownies out of pan by grabbing the edges of the parchment paper.  Once fully cooled begin to frost and top with additional candy eggs.

Can you freeze brownies?

Yes.  Make sure to line a container with parchment paper or aluminum foil and place the brownies inside the container.  If you have more than one layer of brownies place another piece of parchment paper on top to the brownies do not stick to each other.  Seal in an air tight container and store in the freezer.

How long do brownies last in the freezer?

Brownies can last up to 3 months if properly stored in the freezer.
