Method

To make the brownies

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (fan). 
  2. Line an 8inch/20cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper. 
  3. Place the dark chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in-between, until melted. 
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the Maple Sugar and eggs together until thick and foamy.  
  5. Pour the melted chocolate mixture into the whisked eggs and add the flour. Fold the mixture together until fully combined.  
  6. Spoon into the baking tin and bake for 20 minutes. Leave to cool in the baking tin for 20 minutes, then place in the fridge for 2 hours. 

To make the maple cream cheese frosting

  1. Using an electric mixer beat the butter until soft and pale in colour. 
  2. Beat in the icing sugar in stages until smooth. 
  3. Now mix in the cold cream cheese until fully combined. It should be light and creamy. 
  4. Mix in the Canadian Dark Maple Syrup. 

To decorate

  1. Lift the brownies out of the baking tin.  
  2. Spread the maple frosting all over the top of the brownies. 
  3. With the Mini Eggs still in the bag, use a rolling pin to crush them.  
  4. Scatter the crushed Mini Eggs over the frosting.

More about Maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest.

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter doesn't contain any butter, or dairy products.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree – that’s all.
