Topped with cream cheese frosting and crushed candy eggs, these Easter Egg Blondies only take one bowl to make. They are the ultimate spring dessert for the whole family!
Personally, I think blondies are the cooler cousin of brownies that don't get the attention they deserve.
They are easier to make than most cookies, they have a delicious butterscotch flavor, and they are perfect when paired with frosting. What's not to love?
With Easter approaching, I thought I would whip up a batch of blondies to celebrate this holiday. After making the blondies, I topped them off with cream cheese frosting and crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs. They make the perfect Easter dessert, and I guarantee the whole family will love them!
Tips for Making These Blondies
Here are a few tips when making this recipe:
- Line the baking dish with parchment paper for easy release. I highly recommend lining your baking dish with parchment paper before spreading in the batter. This will let you easily pull the blondies out after baking and let them cool away from the heat of the pan.
- Crush up the Cadbury Mini Eggs in a plastic bag. For this recipe, I recommend crushing up the Cadbury Mini Eggs by placing them in a plastic bag and smashing them with anything you have on hand. You could also try using a food processor if you have one, but I had a bit too much fun crushing them up myself!
- Make sure the blondies are cool before frosting. If you try and frost the blondies while they are still warm, the frosting will melt. I know it's tempting to dig in while they're fresh from the oven, but I promise it's worth the wait!
Common Questions About These Blondies
Unlike brownies, blondies typically do not contain cocoa powder. They also tend to have a strong butterscotch flavor due to the addition of brown sugar.
Stored in an airtight container, these blondies will last about 2-3 days. I recommend storing them at room temperature to make sure they stay moist and soft.
Absolutely! Feel free to substitute in whatever else you have one hand—I just find that the Mini Eggs bring a unique Easter theme to these blondies. See what your local store has to offer and let me know if you find a fun alternative.
