Cadbury Mini Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies

I normally buy organic, fair trade chocolate and candy. But come Easter season, I can’t resist a bag or two of Cadbury Mini Eggs!

These little guys are so addictive that I often eat them all before getting around to baking them into cookies, but this year I held out. Thank goodness because these cookies are amazing 🙂

You could really add chopped Cadbury Mini Eggs to any chocolate chip cookie recipe and they’d turn out great. But below is my favorite chewy, melt-in-your-mouth version that provides the perfect amount of candy shell crunch in each bite.

Enjoy and Happy Easter!

Recipe type: dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 24 cookies
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 1¼ cup all-purpose or whole wheat pastry flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup Cadbury mini eggs, broken into pieces (I put them in a Ziploc bag and pound them gently with a hammer)
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together using a stand or hand mixer.
  3. Add vanilla and the egg and mix until combined. Scrape down sides of the bowl.
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, salt and baking soda.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, half at a time, and mix on low until just combined.
  6. Remove bowl from stand and gently stir in mini eggs and chocolate chips.
  7. Please small scoops of dough at least 2 inches apart onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes or until barely golden brown, then let cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes or until they’re easy to remove with a spatula onto a cooling rack.

    The dough is way too thick to work with, I’m hoping the cookies turn out better than making them did.

    Hmmm…I haven’t had that experience, Kim. I will double check the recipe proportions for you.

    I thought this was excellent!! And I didn’t find the batter at all difficult to work with – it was the same consistency as any other chocolate chip cookie batter!
    I accidentally bought dark chocolate Cadbury eggs – and we just didn’t like them. I googled to see if there were any cookie recipes out there and came across yours. Yum!!! Thanks for sharing! 🙂 it doesn’t seem to be allowing me to rate for some reason. I want to give it give stars!

    I didn’t find the batter at all difficult to work with. It was just like any other chocolate chip cookie batter in consistency. Had accidentally purchased the dark chocolate Cadbury eggs – and we didn’t like them. Went googling for a cookie recipe to get some use of them – and found yours. Thank you for sharing – delicious!!
