Mini Nest Egg Brownies

Servings: 36 brownies


  • 1 box Duncan Hines Brownie Mix
  • 1 bag Mini Robin Eggs and/or Mini Cadbury Eggs

Whipped Vanilla Buttercream

  • 3 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 lb confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt


Make the frosting

  • In a large bowl, whip the butter with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until smooth (about 1 minute). One cup at a time, add in the confectioners’ sugar and mix on medium-low speed until incorporated.
  • Add the salt. Continue to beat on medium-high speed until smooth (about 1-2 minutes). Mix in the heavy cream and vanilla on low speed until well blended. Increase the mixer speed and whip on high speed until light and fluffy, scraping down the bowl as needed (about 4-5 minutes).

Make the brownies

  • Make brownies according to directions. If given the option, make the brownies using the "cake-like" recipe instead of "fudge-like" so they hold together better. Bake in mini muffin pan for 18 minutes. Let cool. Pipe a layer of whipped vanilla buttercream {recipe below} on each brownie and top with your choice of egg!
