Instructions
Dark Chocolate Brookies
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter together in the microwave in short bursts on medium-high until melted. Set aside for 10-15 minutes to cool.
  3. Beat the eggs and sugar together until pale and creamy. Add in cornflour, baking powder and vanilla and beat on low speed.
  4. Beat in the chocolate mixture until just combined.
  5. Dollop tablespoon sized balls of cookie dough onto lined baking trays, allowing room for spreading.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until just firm. Allow the brookies to cool completely on the baking trays.
Easter Egg Frosting
  1. Place cream cheese in a medium bowl and beat with electric beaters until thick and creamy.
  2. Gradually add in the icing sugar, beating until well mixed.
  3. Roughly chop up the Easter eggs and stir through the frosting until evenly distributed.
  4. Use a small offset spatula or a knife, spread a generous amount of icing on half of the brookies, and then sandwich them together with the remaining cookies.
