Substitutions and variations for Chocolate Mini Egg Cookies

Enjoy chocolate cookies all year

I’ve made this recipe a few times but have swapped out the mini eggs for what I could get my hands on. Rolos, chunks of Mars bar, simple chocolate chips all work so well.

More chocolate

If you love chocolate you can add even more chocolate chips. Squares of a normal chocolate bar work really well. It might sound like they would be a bit bug but they work a treat.
