How to make Creme Egg Brownies!

Happy Easter to those celebrating it and happy Bank holiday weekend to the rest!

Anyone that knows me knows that I have a serious addiction to Creme Eggs. When I lived in California, my mum had to send out boxes in a care package which I’d then have to carefully ration. That is until I found a shop that sold the American equivalent but even then they just weren’t the same.

So to celebrate this Easter, I decided to make the ultimate sickly sweet treat – creme egg brownies! Sounds good? Well find out how to make them below!
