If you are looking for a recipe for holiday themed cadbury mini eggs, this is it!
Easter is almost here and we are all indulging in in our favorite sweets like these delicious hard shell coated chocolate eggs.
Cadbury mini egg cookies are the best Easter spin on classic chocolate chip cookies.
They are perfectly soft, thin, and delightfully cookie dough tasting. Add in the crunch from the mini eggs and it’s the heavenly chocolatey flavor from your favorite Easter candy baked into a cookie!
How to make Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies
This recipe is loosely based off of the dough I use in this chocolate chip cookie recipe. It’s perfect softness and cookie dough like taste is the best complement to the crunch and flavor of Cadbury eggs.
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
Step 2: In another mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, applesauce, vanilla extract, sugar, and brown sugar.
Why use applesauce?
I used applesauce as my secret ingredient in place of eggs in this chocolate chip cookie recipe.
I have found that adding applesauce keeps cookies staying perfectly soft and moist even once cooled!
Step 3: Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, and mix well until combined. Fold in the mini chocolate chips.
Step 4: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop the batter onto it using a mini cookie scoop. Top each cookie dough ball with two mini Cadbury eggs on top.
Step 5: Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 10 – 12 minutes, until the tops look done. Be careful not to over bake. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for 2 – 3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
Oh my goodness these are just so delicious. Let me warn you though, they are addicting!
This recipe uses one whole bag of mini eggs and will yield around 30 or so cookies.
This would be a great recipe to bake with your kids too!
Can you get mini eggs all year round?
No, you can only buy mini chocolate eggs one time of year.
These Easter egg cookies are so delicious you may find yourself buying a few extra bags to make these year round!
