Chewy Chocolate Mini Egg Blondie Bars

Chewy Chocolate Mini Egg Blondie Bars
Following on from the success of last years Mini Egg Crunch Bars (aka Easter Rocky Road), I wanted to develop a new mini egg creation in time for Easter (we much prefer mini eggs to creme eggs in this house!).

These Chewy Chocolate Mini Egg Blondie Bars are squidgy, chocolatey and absolutely yummy and would make an ideal bake for the Easter weekend.  We are away in the Lake District the week before Easter (our first trip to the Lakes!), so I've made a batch of these and stashed them away in the freezer ready to pull out as soon as we get home from our hols.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING MINI EGG BLONDIE BARS

  1. The mixture is very sticky so I found it easier to press it into the tin with my hand. Make sure you spread it out to all the corners.
  2. I added 100g milk chocolate chips to the mixture but you could add white or dark choc chips if you prefer.
  3. Reserve some of the mini eggs for scattering on top, but make sure you press them into the mixture slightly to stop them burning.
  4. These bars freeze really well so make a batch now and pull them out over the Easter weekend for your family and friends to enjoy.
