Easter Eggs in Brownie Nests

By Kelsey Banfield |

Eggs in Brownie NestsEaster is popping up all around us and I am back with one more Easter dessert, simple eggs in brownies nests. To make these I take my classic brownie recipe, making them into brownie bites and settle candy Robins eggs into the center. They are simple and fun and are not to be missed. You might not be surprised to learn that these babies were eaten up the minute I was done taking the picture. My husband loved their friendly size (how can one bite brownies be bad for you?!) and my daughter spent some time plucking the eggs out and arranging them on her plate before eating them one at a time. Looks like I know what I have to make for Easter dessert!

Eggs in Brownie Nests

1 batch classic brownies

1 small bag Cadbury Mini-Eggs or candy Robins Eggs

1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

2. Grease the inside of mini-muffin cups thoroughly and fill them half full with brownie batter. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the tops of the brownies are set and cake tester comes out clean.

3. Allow the brownies to cool for ten minutes., then remove them from the muffin cups and allow them to cool completely. As they cool the centers will deflate slightly. Once they have done so, drop in  the eggs and serve!
