Ingredients

  • 1 225 g bag of your favourite candy-coated chocolate Easter Eggs
  • 500 ml whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 in batch of Grandma's Fudge Brownies (recipe linked below) just the brownies, NOT the frosting!, a super easy brownie recipe you can throw together in minutes!

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Fudge Brownies according to the recipe directions, letting it cool completely before using. Alternatively, feel free to use your favourite brownie recipe or even store-bought brownies if you'd like.

  2. Slice the Fudge Brownies into small square pieces, about 24 in all.

  3. Add the whipping cream and the sugar to a large bowl (I use my stand-mixer, but a hand mixer works fine too!). Whip the cream on high speed until stiff peaks form. Remove about 1 cup of the whipped cream to a separate bowl and then add the cocoa powder to the rest of the whipped cream, folding it in gently until it's blended well.
  4. Pour the candy-coated chocolate eggs into a plastic bag, reserving a few for the top of each parfait. Crush the rest of the candy-coated chocolate eggs inside the bag using a rolling pin until they're in medium sized pieces with a few larger chunks.
  5. Layer the chocolate whipped cream, the brownie chunks and the crushed candy-coated chocolate eggs in the parfait glasses however you wish, and serve with a dollop of the plain whipped cream on top, along with a few candy-coated chocolate eggs for a garnish!

Recipe Notes

These parfaits will require 4 parfait glasses, mason jars or even clear disposable plastic cups for easy cleanup.
