Brownie Points

Whether it’s a mug cake or a pan of brownies, drop a few of your Cadbury mini eggs(the ones with the M&M-like shells) in and bake like normal.

Cadbury Creme Hot Cocoa

If you’re like me you love an extra creamy hot chocolate so try popping one of your Cadbury Cream eggs at the bottom and mixing it in for a little something extra


Of course, there are also dozens of cookie, bar, and cake recipes out there so never forget to check around Pinterest and more!
