“This is our family recipe for chocolate brownies that we make for Easter. They never hang around long so I try to make at least 2 batches at a time! These are incredibly easy to make - the kids can make them without any fuss!”
30 brownies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the margarine in a large heatproof bowl in the microwave.
  2. Add the sugar, cocoa powder and salt. Mix well then beat in the eggs.
  3. Fold in the sifted flour, baking powder & finally the walnuts if you're using them.
  4. Pour into a dish (approx 9x13) lined with greased tin foil and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C / 350F for 30-40 minutes (depend on how gooey you like them!).
  5. Allow to cool completely before icing.
  6. To make the icing, sift the icing sugar and cocoa powder into a bowl. Carefully add a little water at a time until you have a nice thick icing.
  7. Carefully spoon over the brownie and spread out evenly using a pallet knife. Allow the icing to set for a few minutes before adding the sprinkles (so they don't absorb moisture and leach out).
  8. Score into approx 2" squares using a sharp knife and place a chocolate mini egg in the centre of each square.
  9. When the icing has set you can then cut the brownie into the squares.
  10. Store in an airtight container.
