Preheat the oven to 160C and grease a square, cake pan and line it with baking paper. Make sure to allow enough paper for it to slightly hang over the sides. Roughly chop about 14 (100g) of the Caramilk eggs.
Combine the flour, caster sugar, brown sugar, cocoa, butter, egg and vanilla in a large bowl until everything's well combined. Then, add the pre-chopped chocolate eggs and fold through the mixture. Spoon the mixture into the prepared cake pan and bake for 55 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the mixture comes out clean. Set the pan aside and allow it to cool before removing the brownie from the pan.
Melt the remaining Caramlik eggs in a small heatproof bowl over a saucepan of boiling water. Once melted, drizzle the chocolate over the cool brownie and top it with any remaining chocolate eggs and bunnies. Set it aside and once cool, cut it into several pieces to serve.
What's the difference between fudgy brownies and cakey brownies?
Fudgy brownies usually have a higher fat to flour ratio, making them more gooey and not as cakey. To note, the amount of sugar and eggs that you put into your brownie batter doesn't change whether or not it will be fudgy or cakey.
How do I make my brownies more moist?
The answer to this is extremely simple, just make sure you don't overmix the batter! Other ways can include using the right sized pan and baking the brownies at the right temperature.
Should I bake my brownies on the top or bottom rack?
You can bake your brownies on either the top or the bottom rack however the middle rack is the best one as the air circulates evenly and ensures your brownies won't burn or cook too quickly.
