Easter is right around the corner, y’all, and that means Easter Egg hunts, Easter baskets, church celebrations, and perhaps most importantly (*awaits lightning strike from Heaven 😖*), Cadbury eggs.

My husband and I have a long-standing argument about Cadbury eggs. See, I think the traditional, creme-filled egg is the absolute best. I look forward to them all year long.

I know, you’re probably thinking, “…obviously, so what’s the argument here?”

My husband hates them. HATES. THEM.

What?!

He also hates peanut butter.

Get your pitchforks, folks… LET’S GET HIM!!!!

I digress.

*He* looks forward to Cadbury Mini Eggs all year long. Ya know, the ones that are basically really big, glorified m&ms.

I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love those too. There really is something special about that Cadbury chocolate, and who ever thought a really big m&m would be a bad idea?

But the difference is, my husband has a real problem with how much he loves Cadbury Mini Eggs. I’m about to put him on Front Street (people still say that, right?): we’re barely even into Easter season, and he’s gone through three bags of them. The full size bags, not those silly little pre-portioned ones.

So when I came up with the idea for these Cadbury Egg Marshmallow Brownies, I knew I needed to be covert about it. I had to keep the idea itself secret, hide the bag of eggs in the back corner of the pantry, and the pray he didn’t go digging in there looking for something.

If he gets his hands on the bag, it’s game over. They’d be gone in 12 hours.

Sorry, babe, it’s time to give up the eggs. These brownies were your farewell tour. I hope you enjoyed them.

For the rest of you who can be trusted with a bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs, here’s how easy these brownies are.

I started with a boxed brownie mix for these, because why not? You could just as easily do this with your favorite from-scratch brownie recipe, but that’s a lot of work, and I only had one nap time to get this done.

Roughly chop up your bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs. I’m sorry to tell you, but this probably needs to be done by hand with a knife. I tried to use my food processor, and not only was it absurdly loud and woke the baby (😠), but all it did was pulverize the outer shell into a powder and leave them mostly whole.

Mix together your brownie mix per the package instructions, and spread it into a 9×13 pan. Then drop your chopped up eggs on top, and lightly press them into the batter with a spatula. They’ll sink in more as it bakes.

Pop it in the oven for 25 minutes (or however long your box mix says).

Once they’ve completely cooled, top them with the marshmallow Fluffy Frost icing.

I know this blog is already crazy long for a recipe, but we need to talk about this icing.

I’m usually a big proponent of homemade icing—it’s so easy, and so much better most of the time. But this icing is different.

It’s magical. It’s the best icing I’ve ever had. Equal parts creamy and fluffy and flavorful. You must use it. The end.

Melt your chocolate (because yes, obviously these don’t have enough chocolate yet), and spread it evenly in a thin layer on top of the icing.

Then add sprinkles on top, because it’s Easter and they’re pastel and they make everything more festive.

Stick it in the fridge for a couple hours to let everything completely set and harden before cutting.

  1. Ok I have to admit- I’m in your Husband’s camp on the whole cadbury creme egg thing (and wait all year for cadbury mini eggs)- they totally weirded me out as a kid and I’ve been trying to give them a try as an adult because my boyfriend looooooooves them..so I think I should give these a try and decide how i feel again ;)!

  2. I live in the Netherlands so can’t buy cadbury’s cream eggs in any old store but have managed to find them being sold in specialist candy shop which is in another town. I think I need to head over there because this recipe looks sooo yum!
