These soft and chewy blondies have the most amazing flavor thanks to brown butter. They are full of candy coated chocolate eggs, making them the perfect treat for Easter!
I almost didn’t post these Easter blondies. I really don’t love the pictures, so figured that I shouldn’t put them up. And then I started thinking about the blondies. And how delicious they were. And how the two of us finished the whole pan in about two days. And I realized it would be a shame if I didn’t give you the recipe! Plus – they use my absolute favorite Easter candy, and I have to tell you all about that. So here they are – Brown Butter Easter Blondies. They might be a little ugly in the pictures, but they sure taste amazing!
So, my favorite Easter candy is Hershey’s Candy Coated Milk Chocolate Eggs – NOT to be confused with robin’s eggs whoppers – those I despise. These are basically like giant M&M’s. I really don’t know why these are my favorite. I’m not even a milk chocolate fan! Put a bowl of Hershey’s Kisses in front of me and I won’t touch them. But for some reason, I love these milk chocolate eggs! I usually only allow myself to buy one bag a season because these things are not safe around me. Note that I said I only allow MYSELF to buy one bag. Bags given to me by the Easter Bunny are totally fair game. And I’m pretty sure the Easter Bunny has a bag waiting for me 🙂
When I saw my favorite candy hit the shelves this year, I knew I wanted to bake it into something delicious! And I decided that brown butter blondies would be the perfect vehicle for these chocolate eggs. Browned butter has the most amazing flavor – and when you pair it with brown sugar, the results are just incredible – it tastes almost like caramel. Plus it contributes to a great texture – these blondies are so soft and chewy.
The eggs are big, so I chopped them up into pieces. The chocolate gets a little melty in the blondies and there is a nice crunch from the candy shell. These are delicious, and are a perfect treat to make for Easter. Or, take advantage of leftover candy and post-Easter sales and make these after Easter!
I have some great Easter recipes for you!
