- Parchment Paper Sheets – you must know how much I love these parchment paper sheets!
- 9X13 Baking Pan – I love that this one has a lid.
- Cadbury Eggs
Makes 16 brownies – Make sure you print out the recipe below and save it for later!
- 2 sticks butter
- Sugar – 2 1/4 cups
- 1 ¼ cups unsweetened cocoa powder
- 4 eggs
- Salt – 1 teaspoon
- Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
- Vanilla extract – 1 tablespoon
- 1 ½ cups flour
- Mini chocolate chips – 1 cup
- 1 bag candy coated chocolate eggs
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9×13 baking pan by lining it with parchment paper. Allow the parchment paper to hang over the edges for easy removal after baking. Grease the parchment paper and any exposed areas of the pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
Place bag of candy coated chocolate eggs in the freezer as you prepare the brownies. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium low heat. When the butter is melted, add the sugar and cook for two more minutes, stirring constantly.
Pour the butter and sugar mixture into a large bowl and add the cocoa powder. Mix to combine and then mix in the eggs, salt, baking powder, and vanilla extract.
Slowly add in the flour ½ cup at a time, mixing between each addition.
Fold in chocolate chips. I like to use mini chocolate chips for this recipe, but if all you have in your pantry are regular sized chocolate chips, those work too!
How long do you bake homemade brownies?
Pour batter into prepared baking pan and bake for 30 minutes in the preheated 350 degree oven.
Remove chocolate eggs from the freezer. Decorate the brownies with the chocolate eggs immediately after removing the pan from the oven.
Allow the brownies to cool for 10 minutes in the pan then use the parchment paper edges to lift the brownies out of the pan and transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Tips for Slicing Brownies Evenly
When I was first married and started baking, I always had a problem slicing brownies. Probably because I was impatient and started slicing as soon I pulled the brownies out of the oven.
I mean, who doesn’t want warm brownies fresh from the oven? But that’s not how you should slice brownies if you want pretty even slices.
If you follow these easy tips, you’ll have perfect, evenly sliced brownies every time:
- After the brownies have baked, allow them to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes. But not on top of the stove, okay? The stove top is still warm from the heat of the oven.
- Remove the brownies from the pan using the overhang of parchment paper.
- Set on a baking rack or cutting board to cool completely before attempting to slice. Patience is key!
- The real secret to perfectly sliced brownies is to use either a serrated knife or a plastic knife!
- If you’re still finding it difficult to slice the brownies, dip the serrated or plastic knife in hot water first.
