Cadbury Egg Cookies are a dangerous thing to have lying around. A buttery, chewy, crispy cookie packed with Cadbury mini eggs and chocolate chips. They’re insanely good and one of the most perfect cookies ever.
If I had to choose one holiday that I think has the best candy, it would definitely be Easter. Does anybody else agree? I mean, nothing beats Cadbury Mini Eggs and Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, right? They’re just soooo good!
I know Easter is still a few weeks away, but the beloved Cadbury Eggs have already hit the store shelves and I couldn’t wait any longer to make my Cadbury Egg Cookies and share them with all of you. Is it ever really too early for Cadbury Eggs? Um, that would be a big fat NO!
If you love Cadbury Eggs like I do, then you’re going to love these cookies, and you should give these cookies a try and also these bars.
Just imagine your favorite classic chocolate chip cookie with some Cadbury mini eggs tossed in . . . you’ve got a who new level of cookie goodness.
lineup of ingredients:
- brown sugar
- baking soda
- cadbury mini eggs
- chocolate chips
A few helpful tips. . .
- Chopping the Cadbury Eggs can be a bit of a nuisance, so I put them in the cookie dough whole, and by the time they are mixed in, they have broken up just enough.
- Once they come out of the oven, place a few more Cadbury eggs (whole or cut in half) on top for looks (and of course more chocolate).
- You don’t have to add chocolate chips to these cookies, but you all know my philosophy . . . you can never have too much chocolate.
I’m embarrassed to admit that feel the same need to have an endless supply of Cadbury eggs in my storage room, like I do chocolate chips, so I stock up every Easter. It’s really not a good habit to have, but it means I can make these cookies year-round.
Speaking of stocking up, about three or four years ago I was at Walmart the day after Easter to stock up on the half price Easter candy. That day I noticed a woman buying a TON of the Cadbury Mini eggs. She told me that she had read they were no longer going to be selling Cadbury Mini Eggs in the United States after that year, so she was stocking up. Naturally I panicked and filled my cart with 25+ bags of them. Thankfully that lady was wrong, and the following Easter they were on store shelves (lol!). For the record, I wasn’t mad about having that many bags in my food storage!
Give these cookies a try, you’re going to love them.Print
Cadbury Egg Cookies
- Total Time: 15 minutes
- Yield: about 30 cookies 1x
- 1 cup butter, I use salted
- 2 1/4 cups brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups flour
- 1 bag (9 oz) Cadbury Mini Eggs
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup chocolate chips, I use Guittard
- Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and brown sugar. Add in vanilla and egg until mix until well combined, scraping the sides and bottom as necessary.
- Add the baking soda, salt, and flour and mix until evenly combined. Add in Cadbury mini eggs and chocolate chips. Mix on low until well combined.
- Using a large cookie scoop, scoop out dough into balls onto prepared cookie sheets.
- Bake for 9 to 10 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet for about two minutes.
- I don’t crush my Cadbury eggs before putting them into my dough. They are kind of a pain to chop, so I Put them in whole and turn my mixer on medium speed for a few seconds and that breaks up the Cadbury eggs just enough.
- I love a lot of chocolate chips/ad-ins in my cookies so I use a full bag of the Cadbury eggs. You can use less if you prefer less in your cookies.
