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.

If you like this recipe you might also like my chocolate chip coffee cake or rolo cookies.

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.

Cadbury Cookies Ingredients

  • Unsalted Softened Butter
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Light Brown Sugar
  • Egg
  • Vanilla Extract
  • All Purpose Flour
  • Salt
  • Baking Soda
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs
  • Chocolate Chips

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.

Yield: 24 cookies

    1. I like to freeze the cookie dough. Form them into balls then add a minute or two to the bake time. No need to thaw.

  1. I made this on a whim because someone gave me a bunch of the cadbury eggs so I did a bunch of subs of different items. No egg so used a oil, water, baking power mix. no brown suger so i used a grade A maple syrup. they where very good though. thanks for the recipe. I found leaving out the chocolate chips and crushing the cadbury eggs instead of choping them caused the candy to mix more and taste like a sugar cookie but with that cadbury flavor.

  2. I’ve made these a few times now and they are always a hit with the neighbours and coworkers! But don’t make the mistake I did the first time lol, softened butter is NOT melted butter(I’m new to baking lol). Anyways, room temp butter worked perfectly!

  3. I’ve made this recipe twice for two different easter dinners and they’re awesome! The first time I made them, although they were pretty yummy, they were superrrr sweet (almost too sweet at least for me!) I think due to the candy shell of the mini eggs. For my second attempt, I made them with 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 of chopped mini eggs (basically switching the proportions of each) and they were PERFECT! Tasted almost like a smaller version of a subway cookie lol

  4. I was craving one of these and couldn’t find any locally so I decided to make them with this recipe. Turned out so good I’ll never bother buying one from a shop again! I split the dough in half and froze some to have later. My husband also declared these are the best cookies he’s ever had.
