These brownies are great to make with kids. If you’re looking for something to do with the little ones this Easter holiday, why not try these delicious brownies? They’re so much fun to make and you can use all the chocolate you accumulate over the season as these brownies are so versatile you can pretty much use any chocolate in them.

I have a confession to make. I use boxed brownies. I am a mother of one 5 month old baby. I don’t have time (or the energy) to make brownies from scratch so I always keep a box (or 6) of Betty Crocker’s brownie mix in my cupboard. It’s such a life saver to have when you need it. Been invited over for a family BBQ and don’t know what to bring? Need a treat? Meant to buy a present for someone but you totally FORGOT? It’s a rainy day and the kids are bored? Have no fear and take to the cupboard! You can change them up to suit whoever is going to indulge in them. Know a peanut butter lover? Add a swirl of peanut butter or Reese’s pieces. S’mores fan? Add mini marshmallows and digestive biscuit pieces.
Also, Mum hack, bake a batch after the kids are asleep, add ice cream and eat from the pan. You won’t be sorry!
