These rich and chewy Mini Speckled Easter Egg Blondies are the cutest little easter treat! They’re easy to make, buttery and come together with simple ingredients. These Blondies are a great easter dessert option because you can use any type of candy you like. However, I love the cute pastel colored Cadbury Eggs I use in this recipe.

In todays post I’m super excited to share this Blondies recipe with you. It’s kind of like a Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie, but in bar form! This based on my Original Chocolate Chip Blondies recipe which is buttery, soft and chewy and tastes amazing on it’s own. Add some easter eggs in it and you’re onto a winner! Plus if you have any leftover easter candy, this is a great way to use it up!

I love a good easter dessert and I have loads on the blog. Some of my favorites are my Coconut Easter Cookies, my Rocky Road Easter Cake and my Carrot Sheet Cake!

Wanna Know The Secret To Perfectly Gooey Blondies?

It’s underbaking! These blondies are supposed to be gooey, but not as soft as brownies are. Just a little firmer. Here’s two tips on how to make sure your blondies bake perfectly!

  • Oven Temperature – make sure your oven is at the right temperature. It’s the best way to get the recipe right and ooey gooey blondies. If you’re unsure if your oven temp is accurate, use an oven thermometer and place it in your oven.
  • These are done when the center feels a little soft and gooey. They continue baking when they come out of the oven so they’ll firm up a little as they cool.

Ingredients You Need To Make Cadbury Easter Egg Blondies!

Note: the whole recipe, including the ingredient quantities, can be found at the bottom of this page – just scroll down to the bottom, or click the ‘Jump to Recipe’ button at the top of this post.

  • All-purpose flour
  • Bread flour – helps give these a slightly chewier texture. Can sub with all-purpose flour if you like.
  • Salt – I used fine salt.
  • Baking powder
  • Unsalted butter – can use salted and leave out the salt.
  • Eggs – I add an egg yolk to help make these even richer and chewier.
  • Vanilla extract – I have a great recipe for that on the blog! But you can use your favorite brand. In this recipe, the vanilla extract plays a huge roll in the flavor of these blondies.
  • Cadbury mini eggs – this is what I used in my recipe, but you can pretty much use any mini speckled egg brand you like.

How to make Cadbury Easter Egg Blondies!!

  • Whisk the eggs and sugar together over a double boiler until the sugar has dissolved. Add the butter, and whisk through
  • Add the dry ingredients and half the speckled eggs and mix until well combined. It may be hard to mix which is normal. The butter stiffens as it cools.
  • Spray the bottom of a 20cm x 20cm / 8 x 8-inch baking tin with oil spray and line with baking paper. Add the batter and spread out evenly. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Take out of the oven and add the remaining speckled eggs on top. Bake for a further 10 minutes. Allow to cool and then slice up into 3 b 3 bars.

Tips and Tricks For Recipe Success!

  • Measure out using kitchen scales – measuring ingredients out by weight and not cups is the best way to get consistent results every time! I wrote all about this in my post about using digital kitchen scales!
  • You can add your favorite candy or use your fave brand of speckled eggs in this recipe. It’s pretty versatile.
  • Store in an airtight container. They’re great for making ahead of time, up to 5 days!
  • Use a metal baking tin for this recipe. Avoid using glass or ceramic as they don’t conduct heat properly and so the outside will be overbaked and the inside of the blondies underbaked. If you only have glass or ceramic baking dishes, drop the temperature by about 10C / 50F and bake a little longer.
