These Malted Milk Chocolate Easter Egg Fudge Brownies start with a rich and fudgy malted chocolate brownie that’s loaded with mini easter eggs and chocolate chips. Sitting on top of the brownie is a creamy malted chocolate fudge topped with a ton of fun and colourful Easter goodies! These are the perfect treats for the Spring season!

The other day, though, I went to the grocery store and among all the yummy Easter treats were the famous Mini Chocolate Eggs. That’s when it hit me that, aside from putting some on top of these Mini Easter Cheesecakes, I’ve never actually made a dessert with those eggs before! So I bought a pack, or 2…..ok 5, then immediately began to think of the best ways to incorporate them into a dessert.
Malted Milk Chocolate Easter Egg Fudge Brownies
Return of the Fudge Brownie! It’s been quite a while since I’ve made a fudge brownie recipe, so I just had to bring it back for Easter.
If you’re new to my site, then you should know that the Fudge Brownie is one of the most popular dessert creations of mine. It’s basically a super fudgy and decadent homemade brownie that’s topped with a thick and creamy fudge!
Malted Easter Egg Brownies
We begin by making the brownies. Now I created the perfect brownie recipe that I have used and easily modified in pretty much every one of my brownie recipes.
I keep saying over and over again that I’ll create a separate post dedicated to those brownies alone, and I promise I will! But I can never resist throwing something fancy on top and making a crazy over the top treat. It’s a delicious curse :/.
My brownie recipe is pretty easy and comes together in no time. Melt butter and chocolate together, mix in white and brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour, cocoa and salt.
The only modifications I made to this recipe was replacing the cocoa with chocolate malt powder to add a subtle malt flavour. I then mixed in a handful of mini easter eggs, along with some chocolate chips because if there’s any opportunity to add more chocolate, you should.
Malted Milk Chocolate Fudge
The fudge on top is a bit different than every other fudge recipe of mine. I usually just melt some chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk together, then throw in some add-ins.
This time I wanted the fudge to be malt flavoured, so I had to use a different method and extra ingredients. First, I melted some milk chocolate chips and butter together in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. You can totally do this in the microwave too, heating in 30 second intervals to avoid burning.
Once melted, I stirred in some chocolate malt powder. It may take a while before it’s completely incorporated but it’ll come together just fine. Finally add the vanilla and sweetened condensed milk and you’ve got your fudge!
Fun Easter Toppings
Instead of mixing the goodies into the fudge like a normally do, I decided to sprinkle them all on top! I used a mixture of Easter themed sprinkles, Spring M&M’s, Spring sugar pearls and assorted mini chocolate eggs.
You don’t have to use the exact same things. Any Spring/Easter themed candy you like should work fine. Or if you don’t want any of that added sweetness, you can just leave it plain.
Happy Easter Baking!

- 3 cups milk chocolate chips
- 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 and 1/4 cup (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- Spring themed sprinkles, mini chocolate eggs, Spring Coloured sugar pearls, Spring M&M’s or any Easter candies you prefer
For the Malted Easter Egg Brownies:
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 9x9-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper, leaving about 2-inches hanging over the sides and spray with non-stick spray. Set aside.
- Place chopped chocolate and cubed butter in a large bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir constantly until the butter and chocolate are both melted and combined, about 3-4 minutes.
- Remove bowl from heat and immediately add both sugars, whisk until sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth.
- Add eggs, egg yolk and vanilla and slowly whisk until combined. Do not overmix. Add flour, malt powder, and salt and stir with a rubber spatula until well blended. Fold in chocolate Easter eggs and chocolate chips.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread into an even layer. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the brownie comes out with a few moist crumbs, not wet batter. Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
For the Malted Milk Chocolate Fudge:
- Add chocolate chips and butter to a medium bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and heat on medium-low, stirring constantly until chocolate is fully melted and mixture is combined and smooth.
- Remove from heat and stir in chocolate malt powder and vanilla. Once combined, fold in sweetened condensed milk.
- Spread over cooled brownies, then sprinkle with easter eggs, easter themed sprinkles, spring sugar pearls and more easter goodies!
- Place a sheet of plastic wrap directly onto the surface and gently press the candies into the fudge to stick. Transfer to the refrigerator to set, about 2 hours.
- Once everything is set, lift the brownies out of the pan and cut into even squares. Serve and Enjoy!
