Oh Easter, why do you taunt me so, with all your different types of candy like chocolate covered marshmallows, robin eggs, peeps, and like a gazillion different kinds of Cadbury eggs? I just can’t help myself with all the options! So, what did I do? I threw a whole bunch of that Easter candy into a sweet and chewy blondie batter to get these Loaded Easter Blondies.
I mean how could you not like a chewy delicious blondie that’s loaded with Easter candy then topped with buttercream? Well I guess someone without a sweet tooth, but I’m guessing you actually HAVE a sweet tooth…I mean you’re here reading from a blog called I Scream for Buttercream.
Ok, now that we’ve all admitted that we might have a small (maybe rather large) thing for sweets, we’ve addressed the elephant of in the room. 😉

For these blondies, I’ve added Easter M&M’s, white chocolate chips and chopped up mini Cadbury eggs to the blondie batter.
Once it’s cooled, after you’ve baked it, you’ll cover it in green buttercream. You’ll be using a grass icing tip here, so you can get the look of grass.

I then added some candy coated mini Cadbury robin eggs to the top, but you could go for the malted robin eggs if you like those.
Of course you can add a bit less buttercream than I did, but as you can tell, I’m kind of insane about my buttercream.
