Chocolate Easter Egg Cookies

Holidays always comes with holiday treats! For each special day of the calendar there seems to be an endless amount of delicious recipes to choose from to keep all our bellies happy. I recently shared our tradition of making an Easter Peep Cake! But holiday recipes don’t have to be bright and colorful or complex to be totally delicious and special. Mixing up some delicious classic chocolate chip cookies with an Easter twist is a great and simple way to make something sweet while keeping it easy! Cadbury mini eggs are the classic chocolate eggs that make for iconic Easter treats. So ditch your normal milk chocolate chips and run to the store so you can make these Cadbury mini egg cookies!

I found this recipe years ago on Pinterest and its been such a great one to share with friends and family. And who doesn’t love those mini Cadbury eggs? They always remind me of spring time! These cookies have chewy centers and I secretly even like trying the cookie dough balls because they are that addicting! This is one of those cookie recipes that will have your whole family begging you to keep making them, beyond Easter desserts! What’s even better, is that they store well in an airtight container or ziplock bag, so you can enjoy these chewy chocolate cookies or quite awhile.

They look like Easter eggs on the cookies because the Easter candy is an adorable pastel tone. For those looking for the best Easter cookies, Cadbury egg cookies are at the top of our list for soft chewy cookies this time of year. Start with a preheated oven and let’s begin!

Fold in chocolate chips and crushed mini eggs. Take a cookie sheet and line it with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Then scoop into round 1tsp balls. My secret tip is to use an ice cream scoop, it makes the perfect size cookie balls!

Bake for 9 minutes until they are golden brown with crisp edges! Leave them on a cooling rack to cool down before devouring.
