You guys… I have a problem.

A novel-buying problem.

No, not like an original buying problem. Like a novelBOOK buying problem. It’s getting a little out of hand. And by ‘a little’, I mean I’m buying like 3 or more a day since Christmas.

I now have 20 novels to read once I’m done writing my book (which should be supersuper soon!). All novels I’ve never read before and didn’t know existed because: I haven’t read a book in a year.

EEP.

I know, I know. How horrible, right? I’m an English major, a two-time author and a food writer and I haven’t read a book in a freakin’ year. But in my defense, I’ve been writing TWO books in one year, plus my blog, which is a lot of writing, FYI.

But I have read magazines! Lots of them. So at least I’m not a total ingrate, right? (Tell me I’m not pleasepleaseplease).

So I’m making up for lost time and that new book smell by buying ALLTHEBOOKS on Amazon and reading them front to back from here until Christmas again. So if you have a good book recommendation, leave it in the comments! (FWIW, I like ‘harder’ books – ones about addiction, marital troubles, troubled teens, you name it. Hard issues.)

Anyway! Now let’s talk about these Mint Oreo Truffle Brownie Bombs which you need to read about and then promptly MAKE.

A few months ago, I posted these Oreo Truffle Brownie Bombs and everyone seemed to go gaga for them, so I knew I had to do a fun spin with another Oreo flavor. Enter: the Mint Oreo Truffle.

Made with the Mint Oreos and ground up bits of Andes mints inside(!!) they are delightfully minty and SO EASY to make. Seriously, if you are or if you know of a mint lover, these are next on your list. Promise me?

These MINT OREO TRUFFLE BROWNIE BOMBS are a minty delight! No-bake mint Oreo truffles wrapped in a fudgy baked brownie and coated in chocolate & Andes Mints. So simple to whip up and a great way to impress anyone you serve! And I know it’s *too soon* to talk about Valentine’s Day, but hear me out: I’m a food blogger, which means I gotta start cranking out V-Day recipes in early January in order for them to get traction, get seen, get pinned, etc. in time for February. SO, that said – these would make an awesome Valentine’s Day gift for your sweetie!

Now if you need me, I’ll be reading!

These Mint Oreo Truffle Brownie Bombs are delightfully minty, super chocolaty and a cinch to whip up. Impress your guests with these over the top truffles!
Ingredients
  • 1 box fudge brownie mix, plus ingredients on back of box
  • ⅔ pkg (about 20 cookies) MINT Oreo cookies, finely crushed
  • ½ pkg (4 oz) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp mint extract, divided
  • 1 cup Andes mint chips, plus ⅔ cup for garnish
  • 1 pkg chocolate almond bark (such as CandiQuik)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare the brownie mix according to package directions for fudgy brownies. Pour into a greased 13x9" rectangular baking pan and bake for 19-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean or with moist, not wet, crumbs. Do not bake too long as the brownies MUST be fudgy in order to make the bombs work. Cool completely.
  2. While brownies cool, make your Mint Oreo truffles. In a large bowl, combine the Mint Oreo crumbs, cream cheese, and ½ tsp mint extract with a rubber spatula until blended and moistened; fold in 1 cup of the Andes mint chips. Roll Tablespoon-sized balls of Mint Oreo truffles and place them on a foil-lined baking sheet. Freeze for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Cut the brownies into 24 equal pieces, making sure to trim off the edges as they're too crusty and hard to work with. Take a brownie square and gently flatten it in the palm of your hand. Wrap the brownie around the Oreo truffle, pinching and rolling the brownie in your hands to completely enclose the truffle. Place the brownie bombs onto the baking sheet. Freeze for approx. 30 minutes or until solid and firm.
  4. Melt the chocolate candy coating according to package directions or until smooth and melted; gently fold in the remaining mint extract. Dip each brownie bomb into the chocolate coating, coating it completely and allowing excess to drip off. Return to the baking sheet with a fork and sprinkle with remaining Andes mint chips, if desired.

So simple to whip up and a great way to impress anyone you serve! Minty, chocolaty, fudgy goodness wrapped in one bite-sized morsel of heaven. You’re welcome!

Oreo Truffle Brownie Bombs

These Oreo Truffle Brownie Bombs are no-bake, 2-ingredient Oreo truffles surrounded by a fudgy baked brownie and coated in milk chocolate! Easy, impressive and perfect for any chocoholic! These would make GREAT gifts! These Oreo Truffle Brownie Bombs are a chocoholic’s dream come true! Easy, no-bake Oreo truffles are surrounded by a fudgy baked brownie and coated in chocolate!

So as you may know, I’m writing my second cookbook. It’s very exciting and I cannot wait to be finished so I can hold it and carry it everywhere and bring it up in any conversation, relevant or not.

But like, it’s hard writing a book. It’s by no means an easy, swift process. ESPECIALLY when you’re writing a cookbook.

Because unlike novels and sci-fi fiction and whatnot, you actually have to cook all of the recipes in your book and then write about them. It’s like a double whammy… until you try all of the treats because it’s your job and then you gain ALLTHEWEIGHT. So it’s like a triple whammy. (Side note: is Whammy still on the air? If so, I’d have lost and that scary red furry monster would be appearing any time now. Secondary side note: perhaps I haven’t had enough to drink to see scary furry red monsters yet. Will update you when I’m drunk).

So anyway, when I’m not writing the book, baking the book’s recipes or going to the store to buy all the groceries for the book, I’m writing for this blog, baking the blog’s recipes and going to the store to buy all the groceries for the blog.

In a word? (Okay, two). I’m exhausted.

But it’s a good exhaustion, like if you just ran a marathon (or, at least, I’m assuming. I have never and will never run a marathon) or woke up at midnight on Black Friday to elbow people in the face to get the latest video game or whatever. It’s like that: hard and trying, but in the end, so worth it.

And you know what? I’d do it immediately all over again.

ANYWAY, so it’s been kind of hard to think up ideas for both book and blog. I want to continue to bring you amazing recipes here, because this blog is my baby. But I also want to save really awesome ones for the book, so people have an incentive to buy it besides out of the kindness of their sugar-loving hearts.

So I’ve been scraping the bottom of the dessert barrel trying to find awesome recipes for you to post here. And guys! I finally found one!

These Oreo Truffle Brownie Bombs are just what I needed to surprise you guys and keep you on your feet. They’re SUPER outrageously chocolaty and fudgy and wonderful, and they would be perfect for the holidays if you give edible gifts away.

These Oreo Truffle Brownie Bombs are no-bake, 2-ingredient Oreo truffles surrounded by a fudgy baked brownie and coated in milk chocolate! Easy, impressive and perfect for any chocoholic! These would make GREAT gifts! Basically, you just whip up a batch of fudgy brownies and let ’em cool. While they cool, make your Oreo truffles and freeze ’em. Then wrap the truffles with the baked brownies and let them chill for a sec while you melt your chocolate candy coating. Dunk ’em and sprinkle the tops with crushed Oreos and voila!

You can thank me for my brilliance later.

Salted Caramel Mocha Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs

These Salted Caramel Mocha Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs are AWESOME. Espresso fudgy brownies are wrapped around egg-free chocolate chip cookie dough that's filled with a caramel candy and everything is coated in chocolate and sea salt. Sweet, salty, decadent, delicious! When two worlds collide, oftentimes the results are mixed. The result of these Salted Caramel Mocha Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs is sensational! Gooey, decadent & sinfully fabulous!

…And then I had to go and stuff Rolos inside of cookie dough stuffed inside brownies stuffed inside chocolate. PHEW! Bomb inception. Brownieception. Whatever you want to call it, y’all need to run to your kitchen to make these bad boys!

So it’s no surprise that everything’s been tumbleweed-y and desolate in my dating life. I’d even go as far to say as I’ve moved backwards in my search for Mr. Right. And by ‘search’, I mean not searching at all and just hoping that I bump into a guy serendipitiously at the grocery store and we both marvel over our shared love of bread and 2006 era emo music.

But my friends – the few I can count on one finger – say that I should dress up every time I run my errands so that in case I meet Mr. Right while at Target, I’ll look prepared.

But to that I say: I’m lazy. And also, have you done a full-face of makeup before? It is not for the faint of heart. There’s the whole blending of the foundation situation, which is already hard enough for me since my perfect match was matched with the PRIMER color. Then I have to get my cat eye on symmetrically and make sure I don’t have any knots in my hair since I have a strange aversion to brushing my hair. It’s just this whole big thing and I am so not about that.

And then there’s the whole thing where I sometimes abruptly leave my house to grab some additional ingredients at the store, unknowingly covered in flour and chocolate stains. So clearly, I am rocking this whole attractiveness thing.

But to this I say: wouldn’t my Mr. Right want to see the real me? Me, with a rogue sprinkle in my hair and powdered sugar smudges on my clothes? Makeup-less and rockin’ a half-bun? Wouldn’t he want to fall in love with me when I’m looking like an underground goblin and then be surprised in a good way when I clean up nicely? That’s just what I’d think, anyway. And maybe that’s also why I’m single. WHATEVER.

Anyway, let’s get to these bombs, ‘kay? They really are the definition of a bomb. A calorie bomb, yes. But worth it? Yes yes. In fact, these may be my favorite brownie bombs to date. That’s saying something!

These bad boys are Salted Caramel Mocha flavor and OH MAH GOSH are they good. The fudgy brownies are packed with espresso flavor which really ramps up that mocha aspect. Then the egg-free cookie dough surrounds a Rolo candy which brings that caramel flavor into play.

These Salted Caramel Mocha Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs are AWESOME. Espresso fudgy brownies are wrapped around egg-free chocolate chip cookie dough that's filled with a caramel candy and everything is coated in chocolate and sea salt. Sweet, salty, decadent, delicious! The whole thing is over-the-top, totally sweet and outrageously rich… so don’t say I didn’t warn you. This recipe is NOT for people who don’t have sweet teeth, and this is not for the faint of heart. You gotta be a committed sugar lover to enjoy these, so keep that in mind!

Now, let’s get to eating, shall we?

These Salted Caramel Mocha Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs are INSANE. Super rich, outrageously decadent and fabulous in flavor and texture. A must make for any brownie bomb lover!
Ingredients
  • FOR BROWNIES:
  • 1 box fudge brownie mix
  • ⅔ cup oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp instant espresso powder
  • FOR COOKIE DOUGH & CARAMEL FILLING:
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3-4 Tbsp heavy cream or milk
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 & ½ cups flour (if you're worried about using AP flour because of contamination, use organic flour, GF flour, oat flour, almond flour, coconut flour, or another flour substitute)
  • 1 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • 18 Rolo candies, unwrapped
  • 1 pkg chocolate candy coating (I like CandiQuik)
  • Sea salt, for sprinkling on top
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a rectangular 13x9" baking pan. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, prepare the brownies, adding in the instant espresso powder. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for approx. 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs. Do not over bake! It is imperative that the brownies are fudgy! Cool completely.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar and sugar until creamy, about 1 minute. Add in the vanilla and heavy cream, mixing well. Lastly, add in the salt and flour until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Using a Tablespoon-sized cookie dough scoop, scoop a ball of cookie dough and make an indentation in the middle with your thumb. Add in a Rolo and roll the dough around the Rolo candy until fully enclosed. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
  5. Trim the edges off of the brownies, and cut the brownies in 18 equal pieces (5 rows by 3). Take a piece of a brownie and flatten it slightly with the heel of your hand. Wrap the brownie around the cookie dough ball, rolling it in your palms to completely enclose the cookie dough ball. If needed, dampen your hands to help mold the brownie around the cookie dough. Repeat with remaining bombs and freeze until firm, about 40 minutes.
  6. Melt the chocolate candy coating until smooth, according to package directions. Drop each bomb into the candy coating, coating completely and gently remove with a fork and place onto the baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  7. Store leftover bombs airtight in the fridge or freezer, but if you freeze them, PLEASE bring them to room temperature before serving as the caramel candy will be solid and I don't want you to break your tooth!

Peeps Brownie Bombs

These Peeps Brownie Bombs are a delectable treat for any marshmallow lover! Fudgy baked brownie surrounds a sugary, soft Peep candy that's coated in rich white chocolate. Perfect for Easter and so easy to make! If you know me, you know that my biggest pet peeve has to be when people don’t have their headlights on when it’s rainy or foggy.

It seriously drives. me. bonkers.

And I always wish that a friendly police officer will drive by and pull the offenders over, giving them the biggest ticket imaginable. Or maybe send them to traffic jail for being a danger to society and an annoyance to me.

Some girls want diamonds. I want this.

But then I was driving a couple days ago during a particularly blustery day, and I saw so many people without their lights on that I felt like my head would explode. Just when I thought I would die of obnoxiousness, I saw a cop! Finally, my dream would come true! But then I realized the cop didn’t even have his headlights on.

It was then that I realized there is no helping humanity. We’re all doomed.

Anyway, I had to come home to console myself with one of my favorite Easter candies, Peeps. I love Peeps and find them to be such a classic holiday candy. Some people have a strong dislike for them, and that’s okay – more for me. Personally, I like them when they’re super fresh and plush, and when they’re stale and a little crunchier. However, this recipe for Peeps Brownie Bombs uses fresh Peeps right outta the package.

If you’ve ever wondered how delicious fudgy, rich brownies are with puffy, sugary marshmallows, you don’t need to wonder anymore! These are the best of both worlds, coated in creamy white chocolate and sprinkles. And they are such a wonderful way to dress up this Easter candy.

I highly recommend making them – you won’t be disappointed!

Reese’s Egg Brownie Bombs

These Reese's Egg Brownie Bombs are perfect for Easter! Filled with those delightful Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs, they're wrapped in a fudgy brownie and coated in rich milk chocolate. So easy and delicious! I have a surprisingly low pain tolerance.

This is weird considering I have 20+ tattoos, some of which are in spots that no one should be tattooed because ouch (Here’s looking at you, knee). 

That, and I take shots like a pro. In fact, I have a weird thing where I love shots. Knowing I’ll be somewhat protected from bubonic plague, leprosy, the flu, and whatever else they protect me from makes me weirdly happy. So much so that when our doctor’s office announces that it’s flu-shot time, I will giddily wait in line to be poked and prodded. Color me excited.

But when it comes to everything else? I’m a mega-wimp.

So much so, that I complain about nearly every ailment that strikes me. Headache? Hurts so bad. Stubbed phalange? Wincing in pain. 

And yet, there are some things that truly hurt me mucho – like my debilitating sciatica. Dude – the worst. Or my IBS. Child, you best stay outta my way when my guts start swelling because I’ll roll all over the floor like an injured animal moaning in pain.

And then there was yesterday morning. I stood up from the computer to do a stretch – the one where you grab your hands behind your back and slowly raise them. I do this stretch multiple times a day without so much of a worry, and yesterday I felt the same until pop! Something happened and I literally collapsed to the floor and began writhing in pain.

My mom proceeds to step over me and was like “okay, gotta go, see ya!” while I’m struggling to breathe. My sister snaps, “stretch!!” but I’m rendered absolutely useless as I gasp for breath and twitch. Okay, maybe they were a little more sympathetic, I don’t know, as I was trying not to DIE.

And that’s precisely when I realized I couldn’t move my neck to one side. So I called my massage therapist and thankfully they had an open morning slot. Homegirl worked my neck, head and shoulders so good that when I stood up from my hour-long retreat into wonderland that I could actually move my head again. It was utter bliss. I’ll never take for granted full-head mobility again.

ANYWAY. Since I narrowly survived stretching, I decided to celebrate with some brownie bombs. These are Reese’s Egg Brownie Bombs which have those delectable, highly coveted Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs inside of them. Everyone loves the eggs because they have a better filling ratio, and I couldn’t agree more.

But when they’re stuffed inside of a fudgy baked brownie? HONEY CHILD, you need them. They’re so supremely fudgy and soft with that irresistible peanut butter cup filling. Plus, how festive are they for Easter?!

Make them. Love them. And don’t stretch afterwards.

  4. Dip brownie bombs into chocolate with a fork, coating completely. Remove the brownie bombs from the chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Return to the baking sheet and repeat with remaining eggs.

Box of Chocolates Brownie Bombs

These Box of Chocolates Brownie Bombs are so delicious and EASY to make! You're just four ingredients away from these super fudgy, ultra chocolaty wonders!It’s no secret that I’ve gained some weight over the years.

And while I’d love to have a body like Gigi Hadid, I know I won’t ever look like that, so I’m okay with how I look. Except when I accidentally surprise myself with selfie mode on my phone’s camera and my face looks like a potato.

But in years past, when I was skinnier and more outgoing, I used to get picked up ALL the time. I couldn’t even go grocery shopping at the butt-crack of dawn without having the Coca Cola stock boy hitting me up while I awkwardly bought Diet Pepsi. (Don’t ask – my dad drinks that crap. I’m a Coke Zero girl all the way).

Now I find myself being left alone all the time… and I love it. I can finally go shopping in peace without people badgering me all the live long day.

It’s like my fatness is a force field that prevents me from being accosted anywhere, radiating leave-me-alone vibes to boys and men everywhere.

This also probably has to do with the fact that when I was slimmer, I also did my full makeup for my 6am grocery trips and dressed cute. Nowadays, you basically have to threaten me with a knife to get my joggers off and real pants put on. And makeup? Honey, I haven’t touched my Urban Decay palette in about 3 months.

So basically, I’m the opposite of sexy. And you know what? I’m totally okay with that.

Because even without makeup, even with 100 extra pounds on my frame, and even while wearing leggings and sweatshirts, I still have an awesome personality, a great sense of humor, creativity that seeps from every pore, and a cookbook in the works. Does Gigi Hadid even have that? Well, probably, but there’s room for the both of us 🙂

ANYHOO. Let’s talk about the fact that Valentine’s Day is coming up in a month, basically. Are you ready for it?! I will likely spend the duration of the day binge-watching Criminal Minds and wishing Dr. Spencer Reid was here to ignite my imagination and tell me a plethora of fun facts about Valentine’s Day, so I clearly have no plans… except for maybe force-feeding myself these Box of Chocolates Brownie Bombs.

The idea came to me when I noticed all the heart-shaped boxes of chocolates at my local Target, and I realized I could stuff these inside of my famous, signature brownie bombs. It’s so easy, and totally comes together quickly. Plus, chocolate boxes are out. Brownie bombs are in. Get with it!!

These Box of Chocolates Brownie Bombs are so delicious and EASY to make! You're just four ingredients away from these super fudgy, ultra chocolaty wonders!

  • 1 (13x9") baking pan fudge brownies, baked, cooled and cut into 15 equal pieces (edges removed)
  • 1 pkg chocolate CandiQuik
  • 1 square vanilla CandiQuik
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside. Take a cut square of brownie and gently flatten it with the heel and palm of your hand. Wrap it around one of the chocolates until it covers it completely, and roll it in your hands to form a ball. Place the ball on the baking sheet and freeze for about 30 minutes or until firm.
  2. Once bombs are firm, melt your chocolate CandiQuik according to package directions. Dip each brownie bomb in the chocolate, coating completely and allowing excess chocolate to drip off. Return to the baking sheet and repeat with remaining bombs. Once chocolate has set, melt the vanilla CandiQuik and place it in a ziploc bag. Seal out the air, snip off a corner and drizzle the white chocolate over the bombs. Allow to set.

These Box of Chocolates Brownie Bombs are so delicious and EASY to make! You're just four ingredients away from these super fudgy, ultra chocolaty wonders!You could also make these no-bake brownie bombs by using premade or store-bought brownies or brownie bites! Proceed with the recipe as normal.

Have a super sweet day!

Pecan Pie Brownie Bombs

These Pecan Pie Brownie Bombs are addictive, easy and delicious! Miniature prepared pecan pies are surrounded by fudgy brownies and coated in chocolate. This is a great alternative to a holiday dessert! Lately, something’s been up with my stomach.

No, I didn’t grow abs overnight (I wish) and my muffin top didn’t magically disappear (why, god, why?).

Nope, it’s that lately when I travel, I feel super sick.

Chalk it up to nerves if you wish, but I never used to get car or plane-sick. And now? I can barely make it through a flight without going to the bathroom 387634 times. And if you’ve been on a plane, you know that it’s never actually convenient to use the facilities. You either have to navigate around the beverage cart or climb over your seat-mates like they’re Kilimanjaro.

And okay, can I sound off for a second? (Who am I kidding, this is my blog. I can write about whatever I want.) But brands who sponsor me when travel is involved… they think I always want the window seat. I never really thought this was an issue until every brand trip I’d go on, it’d be in a window seat. At first I thought it must have been slim pickin’ and I was randomly dealt a window… but then it became a pattern and I’m now needing to specify like a little diva that I need an aisle seat.

Let’s just say, IBS and window seats are a no bueno. Because inevitably I sit next to two very large people, both of whom are sleeping on the (very long) flight which means I have to wake them up and climb all over their seats to get to a bathroom no less than 3 times during an average flight. It’s awesome, if peeing your pants on a sleeping stranger is awesome. Surprise!

And the car? Now I’m carsick during long trips. I had to ride a party bus for a business trip not long ago and I felt like my insides are being scrambled, which, in case there was any doubt, is not as awesome as it sounds. It was kinda like when you push your cart over those yellow bump strips in front of stores which, by the way, are probably the worst thing for someone in a wheelchair. I mean, you’re pushing them over these freakin’ golf-ball sized bumps which seem like they last forever, and that kinda crap can pop a brain aneurysm if you’re not careful or at least tilt their chair and dump them onto their ass. It’s not pretty, and I hate those things with a passion. Let’s burn them all.

These Pecan Pie Brownie Bombs are addictive, easy and delicious! Miniature prepared pecan pies are surrounded by fudgy brownies and coated in chocolate. This is a great alternative to a holiday dessert! ANYWHO. The point is, I travel quite a bit for my blog and it’s getting hard with this new trend in sickness. I hope it goes away soon, but in the meantime, let’s talk about something delicious and happy: these Pecan Pie Brownie Bombs. These bad boys are absolutely scrumptious and totally insane. They came to me in a vision when I spotted miniature pecan pies in my local supermarket bakery. I’ve also seen them at Walmart, Target, and sometimes in the frozen section at grocery stores, just so ya know. And when you buy them, buy two because you’ll definitely pop a couple while you’re making these bombs.

Eat up!!

Pecan Pie Brownie Bombs are filled with gooey, nutty pecan pie and fudgy brownies. You don't want to miss this delicious treat!
Ingredients
  • About 8-10 miniature prepared pecan pies (I found these in Walmart, but you can check your local supermarket bakery or the frozen dessert section for something similar. If you cannot find the mini pies, use a chilled pecan pie and scoop 8 very large, rounded Tablespoonfuls of pecan pie filling and freeze them into balls)
  • 1 (13x9) pan fudge brownies, baked and cooled and cut into 12 large pieces (you may have a couple brownies leftover)
  • 1 pkg chocolate CandiQuik
  • 8-10 halved pecans
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside. Take a fudge brownie square and gently flatten it with the heel of your hand. Wrap it around a pecan pie, rolling it in your hands and pinching the brownie around the pecan pie to enclose and seal it. If a little pecan pie peeks out, that's okay; just try to wrap it as best you can and cover it as much as possible. You should get about 8-10 large brownie bombs.
  2. Freeze the brownie bombs for approx. 20-30 minutes or until firm.
  3. Prepare the CandiQuik according to package directions, until smooth and melted. Dip each brownie bomb in the melted chocolate, coating it completely and allowing excess to drip off. Return to the baking sheet and repeat with remaining bombs. With the remaining CandiQuik, drizzle onto the brownie bombs for a drizzled look. Top with a pecan half. Allow the chocolate to set before serving.
  4. Store leftovers at room temperature for about 5 days, or freeze up to 1 month.

These Pecan Pie Brownie Bombs are addictive, easy and delicious! Miniature prepared pecan pies are surrounded by fudgy brownies and coated in chocolate. This is a great alternative to a holiday dessert! As I mentioned in the notes, if you can’t find mini pecan pies (as they’re typically seasonal and found in the bakeries at supermarkets), use a regular pecan pie, chill it briefly until firm, and scoop heaping, rounded Tablespoonfuls of the inner filling and place them on a foil-lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm, then proceed with the recipe. You’ll have a gooier interior, but it should still work!

These are gooey, buttery, and loaded with that amazing, rich pecan pie flavor surrounded with fudgy chocolate brownie. You don’t want to miss this recipe!

Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs

These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs are the perfect Easter treat! Rich, fudgy brownies are wrapped around miniature Cadbury Creme Eggs, then the whole bomb is coated in white chocolate. So sweet & rich!Do you like Cadbury Creme Eggs?

I have a sweet tooth, but I find them to be a little cloying sometimes. I can do one — maybe two — of the mini ones before calling it a night. Stopping at two candies a night? That’s unheard of around these parts.

But have you ever noticed when you add more sweetness, things somehow become a little less sweet? It’s science, babe, and it’s happening here.

Miss ‘I-Can-Only-Eat-Two-Cadbury-Eggs’ over here can easily polish off a basket full of these Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs. They’re a spin-off of my very first (and still extremely popular) Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bombs. Except, instead of cookie dough, we’re using Mini Cadbury Creme Eggs for that Easter flair. And in my eyes, the brownie kind of helps cut the sugary fondant center of the infamous eggs, if that makes any sense. Brownies to the rescue!

These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs are the perfect Easter treat! Rich, fudgy brownies are wrapped around miniature Cadbury Creme Eggs, then the whole bomb is coated in white chocolate. So sweet & rich!These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs have the miniature Cadbury Creme Egg in the middle of all this chaos. The next layer is a fudgy baked brownie. It’s simple: bake your fudge brownies, then press them gently in your hand, then wrap ’em around the Cadbury egg – kind of like a brownie heating blanket. (Side note: we should market those). Then we coat the whole tamale in white chocolate and sprinkles, because sprinkles are scientifically proven to make life infinitely better.

The result? This madness. I’m not sorry.

These Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs are the perfect Easter treat! Rich, fudgy brownies are wrapped around miniature Cadbury Creme Eggs, then the whole bomb is coated in white chocolate. So sweet & rich!Anywho. These little brownie bombs are the perfect treat for Easter gift baskets, mini goodies for coworkers or friends, or just because.

I’m leaning on just because.

Perfect for Easter, these Cadbury Creme Egg Brownie Bombs are made from real Cadbury Creme Eggs wrapped in fudgy brownies, then coated in white chocolate for the tastiest sweet treat.
Ingredients
  • 1 pan (13x9") fudge brownies, baked, cooled, and cut into approx. 1-2" squares (I recommend using Pillsbury's Chocolate Fudge mix)
  • 15 Cadbury Creme Mini Eggs, unwrapped
  • 1 pkg. Vanilla Candiquik
  • Assorted Easter sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with wax paper or a silicone liner; set aside.
  2. Take a brownie square in your hand and, using the heel of your hand, gently compress the brownie flat. Take a Cadbury Mini Egg and wrap it with the brownie, rolling and pinching the brownie in your hands until it covers the mini egg completely. Mold into an egg-shape if possible. Set on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining eggs.
  3. Once all the bombs are made, freeze them for about 30 minutes to firm up.
  4. Melt the CandiQuik according to package directions, until smooth. Dip each brownie bomb into the CandiQuik with a fork, coating it completely. Allow excess to drip off and return to the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining brownie bombs.
  5. Once all bombs are coated, spoon the remaining CandiQuik into a small resealable plastic baggy. Seal out the air, snip off a corner of the bag, and drizzle the remaining CandiQuik over the coated brownie bombs. Immediately top with sprinkles. Allow chocolate to set before serving.

So sweet & rich!You guuuuyysss. These bombs are soooo sweet and rich; the perfect Easter treat! Feel free to coat them with regular Chocolate CandiQuik if you’d like, but I like the Vanilla CandiQuik for an extra sweet touch to play off the fondant filling of the eggs. These are so fun!
