Method

  1. Preheat oven 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4 and place the pastry case on a baking tray.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate on a low heat in the microwave, stirring every now and then until melted. Leave to cool slightly.
  3. In a large mixing bowl add the rest of the ingredients (expect the Mini Eggs) and whisk with an electric hand whisk until combined. Gradually pour in the melted chocolate and combine.
  4. Crush most of the Mini Eggs in a small cellophane bag using a rolling pin. Keep some whole for decorating the tart after it comes out the oven. Sprinkle half into the pastry case.
  5. Pour the brownie mix over the top, filling three quarters of the way. Bake in the oven for 20 mins.
  6. Take out of the oven and sprinkle the other half of the crushed Mini Eggs on top and cover lightly with a sheet of greaseproof paper and bake for a further 5 mins.
  7. Leave to cool and scatter any remaining Mini Eggs on top. Slice and serve.
