Use those cute candy eggs to make these fun bars! These Easter egg blondies are so easy to make, are perfect for a party or crowd. A light crunch on top gives way to a chewy middle for the perfect treat!

     Blondies are the brown sugar and vanilla cousin to brownies.  This recipe is perfect for your Easter crowd. They are filled with fun candies and topped with sprinkles. The batter comes together really quickly and your friends and family will love them!

     Each year I fall a little bit more in love with Easter food.  The pretty pastels, the fun bunny shapes and all of the eggs.

   When I was a kid, MiMi always loved the Mini Cadbury Eggs.  I always thought they were ok, but they weren’t my favorites.

   As time goes on I look forward to them more and more each year.  There is just something about them that is so tasty and the fact that they aren’t available year round probably doesn’t hurt anything either.

     Add to that anticipation the fact that Reese’s now makes Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Eggs and you basically can’t stop my face from grinning.  So I thought it would be fun to put these two into a tasty treat.

   I originally had really big fancy plans, but I had a whole menu of things I wanted to make for our annual Easter party and only one day to get it all done.

    Darn new jobs and not being able to take days off for party prep and cooking!  So I scaled back and went for something much easier.

    Though these blondies come together in almost no time and aren’t quite as fancy as what I originally had planned, there is a pretty darn good chance that our guests will like them even more.

   They have the classic chocolate and peanut butter flavors that our friends and families always go gaga for in a a chewy bar.  As easy as they are to make, they go down even easier!  I can’t wait to see everyone enjoy them at the party.

If you like blondies like this, definitely check out my other recipes as well. Cookies and cream blondies are easy and delicious, salted caramel M&M blondies are a different twist on these bars as well.

    Some of our other Easter favorites include Easter bread and bunny butt pancakes.  Are there any holiday foods that you look forward to every year?

Hi Carlee, I love a gooey chocolate brownie, but have never tried a blondie. Looks like I may have to give these a go! This was the first year in a long time that Mum never managed to get some Cadbury's mini eggs for us, they have been a favorite of mine since they first came on the scene. I bet Reese's peanut butter eggs are to die for, we do get the peanut butter cups, which I love too. I beginning to realise I may just have a sugar addiction!

I looooove a gooey brownie too. The blondies are very similar but brown sugar is the dominant flavor. It's part chocolate chip cookie and part non-chocolaty brownie! I definitely have a sugar addiction, but I've known that for a while. Every once in a while I think I need to cut back, but the feeling never sticks around long! ;-)

How funny that the eggs sink. That's the surprise in the middle!

But nobody minded and almost the whole batch disappeared at the party, despite there being at least 4 other desserts to choose from. So I'd say they're still a win!

I was really disappointed when that happened! But in a move very unlike me I was baking these the night before the post so that I could serve them on the following day, so I didn't have time to tinker. I've made these blondies before with other candies and they didn't sink like that! Maybe next year I'll get them to rise to the occasion!

You can make them with any kind of candy in the meantime, but they are extra fun with the eggs! Thanks!
