Ingredients
½ cup flour
1 cup sugar
½ cup salted butter, melted
2 eggs
1/3 cup cocoa powder

Brownies 1

Method
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Grease or line with baking paper a 31 x 20cm Brownie baking pan.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar and cocoa powder. In another small bowl, whisk together the butter and eggs. Add the egg mix into the flour mixt, stirring by hand until combined. Throw the Easter Egg chocolate into the mixture.

Bake the brownies for 25 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
Cut and serve.
