It’s almost Easter!  Do you know what that means?  Cadbury Eggs!  Since I can remember I have anxiously awaited Easter just so I can get myself several boxes of Cadbury creme eggs, eat them before Easter, and get a few more boxes to ration after Easter.  I don’t know what it is about them but the chocolate and gooey goodness make them my all time favorite candy.

Creme Egg Brownies

So when I saw a photo of a creme egg brownie I almost swooned.  Rich, fudgy brownies with a layer of creme egg goodness topped off with chocolate?  Yes it is as good as it sounds.  I made these little jewels and could barely wait for them to set in the refrigerator.  It’s like a Cadbury Creme Egg with fudge.  These were amazing!

I took half a pan into work and they were gone in minutes.  Thankfully I froze the other half pan so I can take them to my parents on Easter.  I’m also glad I froze them otherwise my husband and I may have eaten the entire pan…they are that good!
