Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies

One of my favourite Easter treats is the Cadbury Creme Egg. They're a favourite for a lot of people since they're incredibly sweet and will satisfy any sweet tooth. Every year we head to McDonald's for a Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry which is so yummy.

This year I decided to try making a Cadbury Creme Egg brownie for dessert. I looked at multiple recipes online that people used for Creme Egg cakes, cheesecakes and other treats. I ended up mixing and matching different things.

So my bottom layer was a boxed brownie mix. I let it cool completely before adding the next layer; homemade vanilla buttercream. From here I put the pan in the freezer.

I made up the yellow 'yolk' mixture next. This was made with a combination of icing sugar, corn syrup, yellow food colouring, and a bit of water. It honestly looked like egg yolk once I found the consistency I was looking for.

I poured the yellow yolk right on top of the buttercream and put it back in the freezer to harden up.

So far I'm loving the look.

This next step is where I'm not happy with how I did things. Initially I thought about melting chocolate chips to pour on top of the yellow layer. But I was lazy and decided on chocolate frosting. Well, the frosting and yellow mixed. It wasn't pretty. However, it still tasted amazing.

Once we cut into it later that night, it definitely came out the way I hoped. The 'yolk' oozed out and it was incredibly sweet.

I'd definitely try making these again, but more than likely with a hard chocolate shell on top to hopefully avoid mixing the chocolate with the yellow layer.

I hope you had a great Easter weekend!
