The perfect cookie for Easter with Cadbury mini eggs and chocolate chips. 

Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies

This Easter I wanted to make a simple dessert, Cadbury mini egg cookies. I decided to make my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe and add Cadbury mini eggs. The combination of my two favorites blew my mind. I mean is it even Easter without mini eggs. Now I have to admit I bought two bags of mini eggs and before I even thought about making these I had finished a bag. Why are they so dang delicious. 

This chocolate chip cookie recipe is both soft and chewy. The key to that is both sugar and light brown sugar. Also taking the cookies out of the oven right as they are slightly golden.

Cadbury Cookies

My favorite way to make cookies

Now over the years I have learned that my favorite way to bake cookies was using parchment paper. But it seemed so wasteful. For Christmas this year my sister in law gifted me these silicone baking mats. They have been a total game changer with the amount of baking I have been doing recently.

Cadbury Mini Eggs

I like a combination of broken and intact mini eggs. Take about 3/4 of the mini eggs and with the flat side of my knife push down with my palm breaking the egg. You can also do this with a rolling pin and a ziplock bag.

  • Granulated Sugar

  • Egg

How to make Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sized bowl or a stand mixer cream together butter, sugar and brown sugar. Incorporate vanilla and egg mix for about 15 seconds. Don’t over mix.

In a separate bowl sift together flour, sea salt and baking soda. Next gradually mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients until combined. Add in Cadbury mini eggs and chocolate chips.

Roll dough into balls on a greased or lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. You just want them ever so golden. The edges will be slightly brown. Don’t over bake these. Cool on a baking rack and try not to eat them all before Easter.

  1. These cookies were so easy to make and so yummy! The only hard part was smashing the eggs. I was so excited to have an Easter treat today make since we didn’t get to have our usual get-together this year! Highly recommend trying this one out!

    1. I am so glad that you liked them. I took the back flat side of my knife to the eggs and smushed them. Chopping them was difficult.

  2. I used Eggies in these instead of Cadbury mini eggs. I chopped them by hitting them with the rolling pin (in a baggie) Yummy!

  3. The cookies turned out great! They were also so easy to make. Thank you so much for this recipe, will definitely use it in the future 🙂

  4. This recipe is awesome!! I made them for family and it had everyone asking for the recipe. So hard to find a good cookie recipe for me but this one was spot on!

  5. I made these yesterday and they were delicious! I just re-read the recipe and it says to ‘sift the flour, sea salt and baking soda’. I didn’t do this but they still turned out delicious!
    I’m going to re-try this recipe today and not forget to sift 😛

  6. The dough alone is amazing. I can’t wait to try a cookie once they’re done. Can you also freeze the dough and use it later?

  7. I’ve only had the dough so far — but it’s delicious and I’m sure the cookies will be too! <3

  8. I just made these cookies. I cut the mini eggs in half. I think next time I would cut the chocolate chips in half instead.
    For me I find these cookies too sweet. Can I cut back in the sugar?
    I know my family will like them.

  9. These cookies were a hit and didn’t last long in our house!! Soft, buttery, and oh, so delicious!
    After Easter, I went back and bought a few more bags to make more. 🙂
