These Easter Slutty Brownies are a chocoholics dream! Cookie dough packed with Cadburys Mini Eggs is crowned with Oreo Cookies and a rich gooey brownie layer is topped off with Creme Eggs and Malteser Bunnies. These aren’t for the feint of heart!
Slutty Brownies are an iconic recipe on the internet. They first popped up years ago with many bloggers arguing over who originated the recipe. That’s an argument I’m not going to involve myself in but I will enjoy the outcome. Traditionally a Slutty Brownie is a soft cookie dough layer, topped with Oreo Cookies and slathered in a rich chocolate brownie. Can’t be topped right? Wrong! Along comes Katie to elevate the already awesome recipe, Easter Style!
Very similar to the traditional recipe I simply swapped out the chocolate chips in the cookie dough layer for chopped Cadburys Mini Eggs and then rammed the top with even more Easter Chocolate. I used Cadburys Creme Eggs and White Malteser Bunnies but you can use anything you have to hand. Caramel Eggs, Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs (!!!), more Mini Eggs. Go crazy!
Tips for making Easter Slutty Brownies:
- Can I eat the cookie dough raw? – No! This cookie dough contains egg so it’s not advised to eat it raw.
- Can I use chocolate chips instead of Mini Eggs? – Yes. Chocolate chips are used in a traditional Slutty Brownie recipe so you can substitute the Mini Eggs for chocolate chips or use a mixture of both.
- Can I use milk chocolate in the brownie layer? – No, milk chocolate is far too sweet and your brownie will come out super gross. Always use plain chocolate when making brownies. You can use a 70% solid chocolate if you’re not keen on the higher percentages but I wouldn’t recommend going any lower than that.
- Can I freeze these brownies? – Yes! You can freeze the whole tray or individual brownies wrapped in a double layer of cling film for up to 3 months. Just defrost at room temperature.
- Can I make them Gluten Free? – Yes, just use Doves Plain Flour Blend. It’s the best I’ve used for baking.
- Do I have to call them Slutty Brownies?! I’m baking these for kids you know! – No you don’t have to use that name. You can call them Easter Cookie Dough Brownies but unfortunately I need to use their proper name so people can find them. Everyone loves a slutty brownie.
HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO NEED:
- Unsalted Butter – Make sure your butter is at room temperature before you start, this makes blending the sugar much easier.
- Light Brown Sugar – I prefer to use light brown sugar as it gives a subtle caramel flavour to the cookies. You can use caster in place but the cookies won’t be quite as tasty.
- Caster Sugar – A little bit of caster sugar helps with the structure of the cookies.
- Eggs – Always large, always free range!
- Vanilla Extract – Always use a pure vanilla extract, there’s nothing worse than vanilla essence. Yuck!
- Plain Flour – Sometimes called All Purpose flour.
- Mini Eggs – Sugar coated Cadbury chocolate eggs, popular in the UK at Easter. Try to find them if you’re not in the country, they’re SO delicious!
- Oreo Cookies – Any chocolate sandwich cookie will do in place of Oreos. You can get them in most supermarkets.
- Plain Chocolate – I use plain chocolate, 72-75% is a good landing point when it comes to baking. Use a higher cocoa solids percentage if you don’t like it too sweet.
- Cadburys Creme Eggs – The ultimate Easter treat. A chocolate egg filled with sweet and gooey fondant.
- Malteser Bunnies – Chocolate bunny rabbits filled with malted milk honeycomb balls. Delicious dipped in a cup of tea. I used the mini variety but you can use the big ones if you prefer.
