Cadbury mini eggs are my favorite candy out there! About ten years ago, I came across this recipe on chef-in-training.com: https://www.chef-in-training.com/cadbury-mini-egg-blondies/
I knew I had to try them as soon as I saw them. That first year, they were a huge hit! Since then, I have planned to make them yearly, but my family always requests them.
Especially my Mom, my nieces, and my brother-in-law! My daughter and I have loved baking together ever since she was little and I always make sure she can be in the kitchen with me helping make them. I always jazz mine up with extra sprinkles and have learned that you can make them for any occasion, not just Easter!
Last year I made 2 batches – one with spring colored sprinkles for Easter for my family. And another with bright colored sprinkles for my God Daughter’s Encanto themed birthday party! I now buy several bags of the Cadbury mini eggs when I see them out for Easter so that I can have them all year round!
