Ingredients

Dark Chocolate Brookies

  • 350 g dark chocolate chopped
  • 45 g butter
  • 3 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup cornflour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Easter Egg Frosting

  • 250 g cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 100 g mini chocolate Easter eggs crushed
  • Pink food dye optional

Instructions

Dark Chocolate Brookies

  • Preheat oven to 180°C and line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
  • 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.
  • Beat the eggs and sugar together until pale and creamy. Add in cornflour, baking powder and vanilla and beat on low speed.
  • Beat in the chocolate mixture until just combined.
  • Dollop tablespoon sized balls of cookie dough onto lined baking trays, allowing room for spreading.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until just firm. Allow the brookies to cool completely on the baking trays.

Easter Egg Frosting

  • Place cream cheese in a medium bowl and beat with electric beaters until thick and creamy.
  • Gradually add in the icing sugar, beating until well mixed.
  • Roughly chop up the Easter eggs and stir through the frosting until evenly distributed.
  • 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.
