Easter Blondies!

Fudgey, Gooey and Delicious Easter Blondies full of all your Favourite Easter Chocolates!

So it’s not really that long until Easter now, but I just can’t resist baking even more goodies! Like honestly… I am obsessed with all things Easter. How can I not be?! YUM. 

So, I already have my Easter Brownies, and they’re one of my favourite traybakes I’ve ever done. They are full to the brim of different Easter chocolates, and I am happy about that!

However, I wanted to do something a little different this year, and stick to my new found love for Blondies! And HELLO THERE these are delicious. 

If you are not aware or aren’t sure.. a blondie is essentially a non-chocolate version (or blonde in colour) version of brownies. They’re sometimes made with white chocolate in the batter, but often not like mine! 

I will say this as well, but Blondies and Cookie Bars are NOT THE SAME THINGS. They’re not even slightly the thing, so please stop thinking that. Cookie bars are just cookies made into a traybake. Blondies are as explained above. 

I have a few different versions of blondies on my blog, and I love them all. For example, my White Chocolate & Raspberry Blondies are one of my favourites, but they have a different method. These beauties are similar to my White Chocolate Caramel Blondies

I essentially wanted these to literally be the blondie version of my Easter Brownies, and they definitely are! They’re packed full of random Easter Chocolates (you can obviously pick your favourites) and drizzled with white chocolate. 

I genuinely went to the supermarket and just bought all the types of Easter Chocolate I could find, and then whacked them in this. You can use all of one flavour, or use anything as I did. I love having different chocolates to bite on in each piece!

When baking blondies, you have to be careful not to over bake them. They really don’t take much mixing either, so try to not over-do it there. I bake mine till there is a slight wobble, and then leave them to cool. 

Once they’ve cooled, you can decorate them, and then cut them, or cut them and then decorate. Sometimes it’s even easier to chill them in the fridge before cutting – but it’s all up to you! Enjoy! X

Ingredients

  • 200 g Unsalted Butter (melted) (see notes below)
  • 125 g White Granulated Sugar
  • 125 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 3 Medium Eggs
  • 275 g Plain Flour
  • 1 tbsp Cornflour
  • 150 g White Chocolate Chips
  • 300 g Easter Chocolates

Optional Decoration

  • 75 g White Chocolate (melted)
  • Crushed Easter Chocolates

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan and line a 9x9" square tin with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, add your Melted butter and Sugars and whisk till smooth. I beat mine for several minutes, and it starts to lighten the mixture.
  • Add in the Eggs and beat again till smooth.
  • Add in the Flour and Cornflour and beat till a thick blondie mixture is made - it really doesn't take long to create this mixture!
  • Add in your White Chocolate and Easter Chocolates and fold through!
  • Pour the mixture into the tin, and spread.
  • Bake the Blondies in the oven for 25+ minutes, or until there is an ever so slight wobble in the middle. However, they can take longer. A skewer should come out clean, or with a few little crumbs, but not raw batter. See notes below!
  • Leave to cool in the tin.
  • Once cooled - decorate if you want.
  • Drizzle over the white chocolate and add some crushed easter chocolates!
  • Can be easier if you set them in the fridge, to make it easier to cut.

Notes

  • I've updated the butter quanitity to be 200g rather than 250g as it was occasionally being greasy for readers - if you liked it at the 250g quantitiy you can still use it!
  • PLEASE USE CORNFLOUR. If you can't, increase the flour by 25g, but the texture will be slightly different.
  • They can take upwards of 40+ minutes in some ovens, due to using different ingredients, different ovens, different mixing methods and so on. 
  • If they turn out cakey, they are over baked - that's all! Bake for a little less time next time.
  • A skewer should come out clean, or with a few little crumbs, but not raw batter. A skewer test is hard with blondies/brownies as you don't want them over baked, but you don't want a load of batter on it either! 
  • If they are a little soft, put them in the fridge before cutting and they will firm up. Once they've been in the oven for 25+ minutes, they will be safe to eat even if a little gooey. 
  • These will last in a cake tin for 4-5 days+ 
  • I keep them at room temperature once they have been cut. 
  • The decoration is optional! 
  • You can use any easter chocolates you fancy - but ones with runny fillings can make them bake differently. 
  • I used a mixture of Mini Eggs, Smartie eggs, Milkybar Eggs, galaxy eggs, M&M eggs, Terry's eggs.

    Hi Jane,

    I’ve used 3 of your Blondie recipes now and they’ve been a winner every time, my team in work are a big fan.

    Would using gluten free flour work do you know?

    Thanks

      I personally haven’t tried it yet I’m afraid! Some readers have said it worked well some said it was a little drier so it’s probably a safe bet (and maybe add in Xantham Gum if you can!) and it should be fine!

    I made these and come out perfect. Especially after leaving in fridge for a while they were still gooey in the middle 🙂
    Just wondering what the difference by using granulated sugar is to using caster sugar ? Thanks.

    THESE ARE AMAZING!! I made mine with kinder bueno (which I put in the freezer for around an hour before Icut them up and added them) malteaser bunnies and kinder bars. I also added a splash of vanilla extract. Mine took around 30 mins to bake and they came out perfect! I couldn’t stop eating them and ended up eating 3 squares at once when they were still warm!! I cant wait to make them again! 🙂

    Hi do you need the cornflour ? What difference would it make not using

      The cornflour is there for the texture, so in my opinion yes you should use it. However, it can be subbed for 25g more flour, but this can change the texture slightly!

    A really delicious recipe! The blondies went so quickly. I made them for my mum’s birthday and she was a bit sceptical about them at first since she’s tried blondies previously which she found quite dry, but she was so pleased with these! She said they’re the best blondies she has ever had. Will definitely be making these again. Thank you for sharing, Jane!

    I bake something once a week for my boyfriend to take into work on nightshift for his colleagues.
    I baked these blondies for them a couple of weeks ago. It was my first attempt at blondies, I was surprised how easy they were to make and how delicious they were (I always taste test before they off to work!!) They are definitely a firm favourite, a really beautiful bake.

    Made these last week and they were seriously amazing! Used milky bar mini eggs in the recipe and it was a huge hit. I’ve tried blondie recipes in the past and they’ve never turned out anywhere near as good as this one. Thanks so much for sharing your amazing recipes, Jane! Can’t wait to try some more!

    These are incredible! Very decadent and sweet. I used up some chocolates I had spare from Easter (mini creme eggs, dairy milk eggs, mini eggs, chopped up milkybar and some milk chocolate chips). I froze the creme eggs before I mixed them in & they turned out great. Will definitely be baking this again!

    Took a little longer for me but they were yummy! Would you use the same recipe and time if you were to use jammy Dodgers or other chocolates? Also is the ingredients meant to be thick or runny going into the tin?

    Hi,

    I’ve got all the ingredients to make the easter blondies, I can’t wait to get started. One question I do have is, do you freeze the easter chocolates (mini eggs, smarties etc) before adding them to the blondie mix prior to going in the oven?

    Thanks!

      No I don’t freeze them – you’d want to freeze soft centred chocolates though!

    Hiya in going to make this recipe but want to half the ingredients as there are only 2 of us! Do you think this will be okay and you recommend doing the bake for less time or still 25 minutes??

    I’m sure We are going to love it either way! Thank you x

      Definitely less time, and also in a smaller tin! A 7×7″ square is about half for the tin size!

      The texture will be a lot more cakey rather than blondie if you use self-raising!

    Tastes delicious but mine took 45 minutes in the oven and were still completely raw in the middle so be careful not to turn the oven off until you’ve got them out and checked they’re actually cooked if you’re making these ☺️

      As mentioned, they can take longer in some ovens. Also, if your butter/sugar wasn’t actually beaten enough that can cause some issues sometimes!

    Hi Jane!

    I love your recipes and must admit that you have got me into baking!!

    I tried this recipe today and it took nearly an hour to bake and was incredibly buttery- it almost looked like it was frying the butter off when it came out of the oven. I used stork, can you think of where I might have gone wrong?

    Thank you!

      Hey! Ahh I’m so glad! As mentioned on the post, they can take longer. However, I did use actual butter. You can use stork, but if your oven temperature isn’t even, then it can cause a bake like this to go a little funny. Once cooled though, they should have been fine!

    So disappointed – I made these today, checked them at 22 minutes, no wobble. However, after decorating and cooling cut into squares only to find it was raw in the middle 😭 will have another go when I can get the ingredients

      Blondies and brownies are notorious for sometimes taking longer to bake – often it’s down to the oven not being the correct temp (compared to what you think it should be.) A majority of the bake will still be fine to eat as they have still been in the oven for 22 minutes.

      They shouldn’t have taken that long – but maybe your oven temp is off a little, but as long as they’re edible it’s fine. Sometimes bakes can take longer.

    Jane, wherever are you getting the ingredients from to still be able to bake?
    Dow here, there have been no eggs for almost a month; no flour, no caster sugar…. ☹🤷‍♀️

      I bake several weeks and months in advance, so all these posts have been completed already. I’m still posting them, as many people have access to ingredients still, and these recipes are also for the future. I have also managed to buy all the ingredients for future bakes.
