Everyone I know loves creme eggs, they are synonymous with Easter and are always added to recipes around this time of year, but these were so easy to make and went down a treat with everyone in the house – so I had to add them to the blog and share the recipe!

- 1 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1 egg
- 1 1/4 cup all purpose/plain flour
- 1 cup white, milk or dark chocolate chips (or a mix of all 3!)
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 5 creme eggs
Put your creme eggs in the fridge because that makes them easier to cut when the time comes.
Set your oven at 375/GM5.
Line an 8 x 8 tin with greaseproof baking paper to make your cookie bars easier to get out once they are cooked. Set the tin aside.
Mix your butter and sugar together until it is smooth and paler, add 1-2 tablespoons of the flour and your egg (this stops the mixture from splitting). Add the rest of the flour and vanilla essence. Finally add your chocolate chips.
Place the mixture into the tray and push down into the corners. Bake for 30mins, meanwhile take your creme eggs out of the fridge and cut them in half, take the cookie bars out of the oven and while the cookie mix is still hot push half an egg into the mixture at inch apart intervals. Return to the oven for another 10 minutes.
Once removed from the oven, allow to cool in the pan for a few minutes, lift out of the pan and cut into single egg squares.
Devour with a cup of tea or coffee!
