I love easter and these easy mini egg brownies are just the thing that helps me enjoy it even more. I always attempt to make new easter recipes each year and this year I wanted to make some yummy brownies and that’s exactly what you have.
I’ve seen this recipe all over social media at the moment but they’re long and have loads of ingredients. With this recipe, you’ll need four ingredients and that’s all. This is one easy mini egg brownies recipe and quite frankly, anyone can do them.
You can make this mini egg recipe with more ingredients if you want, essentially from scratch, I think it’s a lot easier with a box mix and it means less washing up as well! If you want to make a mini egg brownies recipe without a box mix, that’s easy to do.
Easter Egg Brownies
If you wanted to jazz up these brownies, that’s totally doable. Of course, you’ve already got mini eggs in the brownies and on top but you can also use other easter eggs for the topping. You could add cream eggs if you wanted or any eggs you can get your hands on, it doesn’t have to use be mini eggs!
I would stress that it’s important to use most easter eggs on top of the brownies. If you put them in the brownies their more chance of the eggs melting in the recipe which will mean the brownies don’t bake at their normal time and you might be left with undercooked brownies and nobody wants that.
I’d love to know if you included anything else on top of these mini egg brownies so let me know in the comments and I might just have to try it out myself one day!

Baking With Cake Mix
I love baking with a cake mix or brownie mix. It makes it so much easier and if you’re pressed for time it means you don’t have to spend time weighing ingredients and mix them all together. Most of the time they’re cheaper than buying all the ingredients as well so I would say it’s a pretty useful solution, even more so if you want to make these amazing easy mini egg brownies but not spend hours in the kitchen.
I don’t normally use box mixtures but sometimes needs must and we all know how busy it can be around easter time, especially if you have children so this is one time where I say go for it and let your hair down when baking.
For these mini egg brownies, I used a Betty Crocker brownie triple chocolate mix. I’ve used it loads before and it’s one that I swear by. I did use two for this recipe as they don’t always make loads and as I was adding bits into these easter brownies it meant I
Equipment I Used To Make This Mini Egg Brownies Recipe

Easy Brownie Tips
Sometimes I hate making brownies, after all a couple of minutes more and you end up with cake. I used to shy away from making them because they were so difficult to make, however, I had to face my fear if I wanted to make this mini egg brownies recipe that’s for sure!
If you’re worried about making brownies, here are some tips. Make sure you put your brownies in the middle of the tray and I’d put it on the middle shelf, if you put them on the top they will burn on top but most of the time they won’t be done in the middle and you’ll end up with a gooey mess and nobody wants their yummy easy mini egg brownies to be an easy mini egg mess!
You can also get an oven thermometer if you’re worried about the heat of your oven. We moved into a new home recently and I hate trying out new cookers, our oven thermometer is a godsend and after a few ruined bakes, it really helped in making sure my bakes weren’t black when they came out of the oven!
When you test your easter egg brownies towards the end made sure you poke the middle of the brownies. A lot of people poke the outer side of the brownies and that doesn’t give an accurate reading because the outside is normally the first part to bake. You’ll also want to make sure you have a good cake tester!
Finally, if you find that part of your brownie wasn’t done enough you can put them in the air fryer on bake for 5 minutes, take them out and leave them to cool and most of the time, this will fix that! Make sure you have a silicone insert for your air fryer if you’re going to do that.
