Easter Bunny Brownies

Easter Bunny Brownies

With Easter only a week away, I thought I’d whip up some delicious treats and give you a cute tutorial to follow. This recipe is extremely easy to make and no special ingredients or moulds are needed, you can pick everything up from your local supermarket!

I also got to use Dr Oetker Marzipan for the first time, it was so easy to use and I thought it was fitting as Marzipan is regularly used at Easter for Simnel Cake!

You will need (makes 20 Brownies):

  • 175g Dark or Plain Chocolate
  • 125g Butter
  • 225g Caster Sugar
  • 2 Tsp Dr Oetker Vanilla Essence
  • 2 Medium Eggs
  • 150g Plain Flour
  • 1 Large Bag Mini Eggs
  • 250g Dr Oetker Marzipan
  • Small amount of Dr Oetker Pink Fondant Icing

Chopped Dark Chocolate

Preheat your oven to 175 degrees. Start by chopping your Dark or Plain Chocolate into pieces.

Melted Butter Chocolate

Melt together the Butter and Dark Chocolate in a glass bowl over a saucepan of boiling water, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon to prevent any burning.

Vanilla and Sugar Brownies

Once melted, remove from the glass bowl from the heat and pour in the Vanilla Essence and Caster Sugar.

Brownie Batter

Stir gently until you have a nice thick Brownie Batter like shown above.

Eggs and Flour

Next add your Eggs, mixing in more vigorously now – you should have a gloopy mixture at this point. Now pour in the plain flour and fold with a metal spoon until fully combined.

Mini Egg Brownies

To finish the brownie mixture, pour in half the large bag of Mini Eggs and stir in.

Mini Egg Brownie Mix

Pour the mix into a greased baking tray, and bake in the oven for approx 25 minutes. Don’t be afraid to take the brownies out of the oven at this time if they are still gooey, they’ll carry on cooking once you take them out and the best brownies have a gooey centre anyway!

Mini Egg Easter Brownies

Once your brownies are out of the oven, place on a cooling rack and press a few Mini Eggs into the top so they look like they are half buried in the brownie. This is much easier to do while the brownies are still hot.

Dr Oetker Marzipan

Now you can leave your brownies to fully cool and make your marzipan bunnies!

Marzipan Bunny Tutorial

Start by making a medium sized ball of marzipan and two flat oval shapes (for the feet). Stick the oval shapes to the back of the ball by pressing down gently.

Next make a second smaller ball for the tail and stick it on top of the larger ball. Using a cocktail stick, make tiny pokes all over the smaller ball to give a furry effect.

Marzipan Bunny Recipe

Next grab a tiny bit of pink fondant icing, and make a small ball and push it onto the top of one of the feet, flattening down until it covers the top half of the foot. Next make three tiny balls of pink fondant and press them down onto the bottom of the foot so they look like the toes. Repeat these steps for the other foot and your ‘bunny bum’ as I like to call it, is complete!

Marzipan Bunnies

Repeat this until you have a selection of bunnies to top your brownies with.

Easter brownies

To finish, simple stick the bunny to your brownie with a little melted chocolate and finish! If you have some brownies without any eggs poking out, you can just add some eggs on top with more melted chocolate. I’d recommend making a few with just Mini Eggs too, for those who don’t like marzipan!

Happy Easter!

    I love these cute little brownies, and your tutorial makes them very do-able, even for someone who is as challenged in the decorating department as I am 🙂
