Many households will find that their stash of Easter chocolate has already been depleted, but if you still have a decent quantity left, these brownies are a great option. Decadent and rich, yet surprisingly easy to make, these can be ready in under an hour, meaning you and your family could be enjoying that Easter chocolate in an entirely new way very soon! You can adjust the amount of sugar in the brownies if you’d prefer something a little less sweet.

Ingredients (to make 12):

  • 3/4 cup of plain flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of unsalted butter
  • 2 cups of chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of caster sugar


  1. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a bowl or pan. Leave aside to cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 380° F.
  3. Line and grease a 10-inch x 10-inch baking tray.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour and the cocoa powder.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and the sugar. The mixture should become pale and double in volume.
  6. Pour the chocolate mix into the eggs and sugar, folding gently with a spoon to mix them together.
  7. Sift in the flour and cocoa powder into the mix, folding this in with a spoon.
  8. Pour the mix into the lined tin, and bake for 25 minutes. The brownie is ready when the middle doesn’t wobble when the oven tray is shaken, it should have a glossy sheen on top. Allow to cool before serving.
