Easter Egg Brownies
The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions and ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required and understand the steps and timings involved.
After the gloominess of winter, spring brings with it life and color and of course, Easter!
The Easter egg brownies are so much fun to make, and the recipe really is more of a guide than a recipe!
You just need a tray of brownies – you can use your favorite brownie recipe, or do like we do and use a box mix – which you then cut into egg shapes using a cookie cutter.
Once the brownie eggs have cooled down, you and the kids can go wild with different colored frosting, sanding sugar, sprinkles, and candies!
Use our photos as a guide for your designs, but there is no right or wrong way to decorate your Easter egg brownies – go wild and get creative!
Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe
For your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients and equipment needed to make these cupcakes have been listed below and linked to Amazon or other stores if available online. Standard ingredients such as flour or sugar are not listed, as you are likely to have those in your kitchen. The full list with measurements is found in the recipe card.
- Box of Brownie Mix – you will need 2 boxes, plus the ingredients to make the cake mix, usually eggs, oil, and water.
- White Frosting – you can use ready-made frosting, or make your own using your favorite recipe.
- Assorted Colored Frosting – you can use ready-made frosting tubs or pouches, or use food coloring gel to color white frosting instead.
- Colored Sanding/Decorating Sugar
- Easter Sprinkles
- Easter Candies
- 11″ x 17″ Sheet Pan – this is the size used in this recipe, but you can use slightly smaller or larger, depending on what you have at home.
- Egg-Shaped Cookie Cutter
Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog! I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. You can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

How Do I Make Easter Egg Brownies?
Just check out the recipe card below with full ingredients, and instructions. You can print the card out too (don’t worry, the pics don’t print to save your ink!).
- 2 boxes of brownie mix + additional ingredients per directions
- White frosting
- Assorted colored frosting
- Assorted colored sanding sugar
- Assorted Easter sprinkles and candies
- Egg-shaped cookie cutter
- To make the brownies, preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4 (or according to box instructions). Line an 11" x 17" baking sheet with parchment paper, leaving a little overhang.
- Using an electric handheld or stand mixer, place the brownie mix and other listed ingredients on the box into a large bowl and mix until combined and smooth.
- Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan.
- Bake for 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
- Leave to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely before cutting and decorating.
- Use an egg-shaped cookie cutter to cut eggs from the sheet of brownie. Make sure to cut economically so as not to waste the brownie! (and leftover brownie could be turned into cake pops!)
- Spread a layer of white frosting on each brownie egg before decorating with colored frosting and sprinkles.
- Use the different colored frosting, sugars, sprinkles, and candies to decorate the rest of the brownie Easter eggs in any way you like! Here are our examples to give you inspiration!
- Enjoy and Happy Easter!
