Cadbury Mini Eggs Blondies

Cadbury Mini Eggs Blondies - made February 1, 2013 from Chef in Training
I made these awhile back but had a few other things I was trying to get up so this got temporarily delayed.  But since Easter will be looming shortly and stores now carry Easter candy, now's the time to sink your teeth into these.  I love Cadbury mini eggs.  Not to be confused with Cadbury creme eggs or caramel eggs.  These are the milk chocolate mini eggs with the candy shell coating.  Like M&Ms on steroids but much, much better. I usually buy a bag once a year and can make it last me quite while by savoring a couple (or 5) every other day or so.  In recent years though I keep forgetting to buy a bag and when I did, I kept forgetting to eat them.  I actually think these were from last year.  Fortunately the bag was unopened so I figure they were still fresh enough.  Rather than eating them like popcorn, I decided to use them for this blondie recipe.

I don't normally make blondies because a lot of the ones I've tried are a trifle too sweet for me.  But this was a good recipe from Chef in Training.  It's got a nice brown sugar caramel toffee flavor and the Cadbury mini eggs offer a good crunch and chocolate flavor to pair with it.  Don't underbake too much or it'll be too mushy (but don't overbake it either).

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups milk chocolate mini eggs
  1. In a medium-size mixing bowl sift flower, baking soda and salt together.
  2. Melt butter over medium heat. Once melted add to the bowl of your electric mixer. Cream together with sugars.
  3. Add in vanilla and eggs mix until creamy.
  4. Slowly add in flour mixture until it is incorporated.
  5. Fold in Mini Eggs.
  6. Spread batter into a greased 8×8, 9×9, or 11×7 baking dish. (I made mine in an 8 x 8 pan for thicker bars.)
  7. Bake at 325 for about 40 minutes or until a tooth pick is inserted in the center and comes out clean.
  8. Let the bars cool for 30 minutes before slicing.


  1. I recently tried Cadbury Mini Eggs for the first time (about a month ago) and became obsessed! I am ashamed to say I ate an entire bag in a week! Thanks for the great recipe, I can't wait to try it...although I'm sure I'll have to spend extra time in the gym!

    1. I know, right?? I love the Cadbury mini eggs! I bought my bag for the year and am going to make them last. Or so I tell myself....
