Keep Easter dessert simple and sweet with these cute treats. Your box of Betty Crocker™ fudge brownie mix will give you a jump-start on baking these up, so there’s more time for decorating. And these eggs are a lot easier to dye than your typical Easter eggs—just add a little food color to your Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting. Decorate with kids for a fun holiday project, or make them a sweet surprise for Easter brunch dessert. Either way, we think you’ll find these are the kind of eggs everyone’ll want to eat!

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, letting foil hang 2 inches over sides of pan. Spray foil with cooking spray. Make brownie batter as directed on box. Spread in pan.
  • 2
    Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely, about 1 hour. Freeze in pan 30 minutes.
  • 3
    Using foil to lift, remove brownies from pan, and peel foil away. Cut out 9 egg shapes using 3-inch egg-shaped cookie cutter, 3 rows by 3 rows. Gently push brownie out of cutter each time. Set aside end pieces for snacking. If cutter gets sticky, wipe clean with damp paper towel before cutting again.
  • 4
    In small bowl, place vanilla frosting; tint with food color to desired color. For each brownie, spread generous 1 tablespoon frosting on top. Decorate as desired with candy sprinkles and colored sugars. Repeat with remaining brownies (use photo as guide).
  • 5
    Let stand about 30 minutes or until frosting is set. Store covered in airtight container in single layer.

Expert Tips

  • Leftover brownie pieces make a delicious topping on an ice cream sundae!
  • Want to go wild with your decorating? Here’s how to color your frosting like a pro.
  • Try piping your brownie eggs for an extra pretty frosting job. If you don’t have a piping bag, it’s easy to make a DIY version. Simply fill one corner of a gallon-sized zip-top bag with frosting, seal the top and make a small cut in the corner of the bag—voilà, you’re in business!
  • The never-fail way to get brownies out of the pan is to line it with foil before baking. To easily measure your foil, flip your pan over, and wrap foil over the sides and bottom of the pan. Give yourself 2 extra inches on both sides. Once you’ve got your foil measured out, flip your pan back over, and line the inside—you should have the perfect fit. Coat the foil with cooking spray before pouring in the batter. After baking, allow the brownies to cool completely, about 1 hour. Then, freeze your pan of brownies 30 minutes. Now, it should be easy to remove the brownies from the pan by simply lifting out the foil lining. You’ll also find it’s easier to cut Easter egg shapes out cleanly when working with slightly frozen brownies. Wipe off your cookie cutter as you go if it starts to get sticky.
