Hoppy Easter – [Brownie Mini Egg Pie]

For this past long weekend, I wanted to bake something Easter themed and with chocolate mini eggs.  I ended up finding this unique recipe online that involved baking a brownie in a pie shell.  This time I didn’t edit the recipe and it turned out just great!  I would definitely make this recipe again. It was super easy to put together and great for sharing. :)  The hardest part of this recipe was actually trying to find the mini eggs!  I went to 3 grocery stores and none had any left, so I ended up going to Bulk Barn and picked up some that had almonds inside.  DOUBLE YUM!

MELT: chocolate in microwave for 30 seconds, then stir and microwave again until melted.  Set aside to cool.

COMBINE: all other ingredients (except mini eggs) until combined.  Pour in the melted chocolate and combine until blended.

CRUSH: 3/4 of mini eggs in a plastic bag using a rolling pin. Sprinkle almost all of the crushed mini eggs into the pie shell.

POUR: the brownie mixture on top of the crushed mini eggs in the pie shell.

BAKE: in the oven for 20 minutes, then take out the pie and add remaining whole mini eggs to the top.  Place pie back into the oven for 5 minutes. Then remove from the oven and set aside to cool before cutting.
