These Fudgy Caramel Egg Brownies are decadent. Like I can’t even handle the decadence, decadent. But you totally can and you’ll totally want to eat the whole pan. Hi guys! Des from Life’s Ambrosia here again. This time I am bringing you this recipe for Fudgy Caramel Egg Brownies. They are brownies baked with a layer of caramel filled eggs and then topped with a thick layer of dark chocolate ganache.

In the coming weeks I bet you’re going to find yourself with an abundance of Easter candy. I’m really not sure which holiday we eat more candy: Easter or Halloween. They could be tied, I’m not sure. Maybe we just eat a lot of candy. What I am sure of however, is that those caramel filled eggs that pop up on the shelves around Easter time are kind of my jam.

Brownies are also my jam.

Brownies with a layer caramel filled eggs and dark chocolate ganache are the jam of all jams. And that’s why I’m sharing them with you today.

One thing I love about brownies is how easy they are to make. You only need one bowl, a whisk, a wooden spoon and a baking dish. These brownies do however, require a little bit of time because of the ganache. Sure, they would be fantastic right after the ganache hardens but let me tell you a secret. After you cover them and put them in the refrigerator for a few hours they become out of this world.

Fudgy. Decadent. Everything a good brownie should be.

Just make sure that you keep them out of reach of little hands. They will for sure try to snatch them!

Can Brownies be Cooked in a Microwave?

Brownies can be cooked in a Microwave.

Place brownie batter in a microwave safe dish.

Microwave on high until brownies are just set in center, 4 to 7 minutes, depending on power and size of your oven.

After 4 minutes, if the brownies aren’t set, check every 15 seconds till done.

Will Brownies Keep at Room Temperature?

Fully cooked brownies will last a week or more at room temperature.

Wrap tightly it keep the air out.

Air will dry brownies and make them crumble.
