Melt your butter and chocolates in the microwave on short bursts or in a bowl over a pan of boiling water, stirring regularly. Once melted, leave your mixture to cool to room temperature. 

Step Four:

Crack your eggs into a separate bowl and whisk them together with your caster sugar until the colour has turned pale 

Step Five:

Pour the cooled chocolate mix over the eggs mixture and fold together slowly and carefully. 

Step Six:

Once your eggs mixture and chocolate mixture has fully combined, sift in your flour and cocoa powder and then fold these together, slowly and carefully. 

Step Seven: 

Add in your chocolate chips and frozen creme eggs and fold again 

Step Eight:

Once this has all combined, pour the brownie mixture into your prepared tin and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. 

Step Nine:

Once baked, leave it to cool in the tin completely. 

Step Ten:

Melt your white chocolate until smooth, you can do this on short bursts in the microwave or in a bowl over a pan of boiling water, again stirring regularly. 

Step Eleven:

Split your white chocolate into two bowls, and colour one half to an orange colour. 

Step Twelve:

Drizzle your white chocolate, and then your orange coloured chocolate over your brownie, and place your halves of creme eggs on the brownie and leave to set. You can put as many creme egg halves as you like on this. 

Step Thirteen:

Once set, cut your brownies into as many pieces as you like and dig in to enjoy this Easter treat!
