These soft and chewy Cadbury egg cookies made with mini chocolate Cadbury eggs are the perfect Easter cookie.
Cadbury Egg Cookies
Easter is a little over a week away and I already have a stash of three bags of mini chocolate Cadbury eggs. They are essential in our home once it hits March. Anyone else a huge fan of mini Cadbury eggs?
Growing up, my Mom made Easter extra special. It would last the whole weekend with a big Easter Egg hunt with all of the cousins, aunts, and uncles at my Grandma and Grandpa’s home on Saturday with an Easter feast. We would devour creamy deviled eggs, easy ham and cheese sliders, the best potato salad, honey lime fresh fruit salad, and coconut cupcakes.
I remember vividly being disappointed when I opened eggs not filled with chocolate. I would usually trade all of my jelly beans for mini Cadbury eggs. The obsession definitely started young!
So I thought since Cadbury chocolate mini eggs are so good on their own…why not add them to a cookie? The results were Easter cookie perfection. I took a brown sugar cookie dough and added white or milk chocolate chips and mini chocolate Cadbury eggs to it and baked them until a light golden color.
These are the perfect Easter cookie to take to your potluck or Easter gathering. You just have to make sure they get there before you are tempted to eat them all!
Cadbury Egg Cookies Ingredients:
- Brown Sugar and Sugar
- Vanilla Extract
- Baking Soda and Salt
- Mini Chocolate Cadbury Eggs — these are the crispy-shelled milk chocolate mini Cadbury eggs found in the Easter aisle.
- White Chocolate or Milk Chocolate Chips — Use your favorite type of chocolate chips. I suggest using Ghirardelli or Guittard chocolate chips.
How to make the Best Easter Chocolate Cadbury Egg Cookies:
- Start by creaming together softened butter and sugar for 4 minutes or until light and fluffy. Make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl and continue to mix to ensure even mixing. Add egg and vanilla.
- Fold in flour, baking soda, and salt, just until mixed together. Add milk chocolate or white chocolate chips and mini chocolate Cadbury eggs and lightly mix. This will allow to break up a few of the Cadbury eggs. You want to have some remain whole and intact and some of them can break apart a little. Set aside 1/3 of the bag to place on the cookies at the end.
- If time is on your hand, wrap the cookie dough in Saran Wrap and place it in the refrigerator to chill. It is ideal to wait 24-48 hours but even 30 minutes can help. This helps to solidify the butter so the cookies don’t spread as much and it deepens the flavor of the dough.
- Roll the dough into balls. Chop the remaining mini Cadbury eggs and press them into the tops of the cookies. Bake for 9-11 minutes.
These cadbury eggs are best eaten the day of baking. However, these cookies freeze very well. Place in a freezer-safe bag and place in the freezer for up to 2-3 months.
