Easter Chocolate Mini Egg Cookies

Chocolate cookies are great especially with extra chocolate on top! To give the cookies an Easter twist I’ve added mini eggs. I am a bit of a mini egg fan. A lot to be honest.

These are so simple to make and you can have them made and ready to eat in 40 minutes. I love these cookies and I make them a lot. I usually double or triple up the amount so I can feed everyone who randomly turns up. I swear they can smell it on the wind.

Chocolate cookies are pretty great on their own but adding mini eggs takes it to the next level. I love seeing everyone eyeing up the cookies to see which has the most mini eggs. Chocolate and chocolate. What else do Easter cookies need!

How many mini eggs on a cookie is too many?

When you make them they will spread so seriously add loads. I usually try and keep 5 per cookie but I have been known to make myself a sneaky cookie with a lot more top.

The before and after of these delicious Easter Chocolate Mini Egg Cookies. You can see how much they will spread so make sure you leave space when baking them.

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. Even squares of a normal chocolate bar work really well. It might sound like they would be a bit big but they work a treat.

  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 1 medium egg

  • Mini Eggs as many as you like. I found 1 bag was enough if you put 3 on each.

Instructions

  • Line a few trays with baking paper. I use 3 for this recipe as the cookies spread a lot.
  • Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and stir in well.
