Cadbury mini eggs are the best!
There’s something about their creamy chocolate and sugary outer shell.
Better still, Cadbury Mini eggs are relatively cheap, widely available, and absolutely brilliant to bake with.
One of my personal favorites bakes for Cadbury Mini eggs are cookies.
So today, I would love to share with you my very own Cadbury Mini Egg Cookie Recipe that will be sure to go down well!
If you love cookies, and chocolate (who doesn’t), be sure to give them a try!
They’re perfect for Easter, which thankfully, is just around the corner.
What Do You Need To Make Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies
All Purpose Flour
The core ingredient that essentially makes for the frame of the cookies.
To help expand your cookies and help them rise.
To ensure your cookies are light and airy.
A core ingredient for structure and to ensure your cookies have that doughy effect we all love!
Brown and Granulated Sugar
To add some more sweetness!
For binding, structural and richness purposes!
An important addition. Vanilla extract will enhance the flavors of the other ingredients, but most importantly, take the edge of the egg off!

How To Make Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies
Step One: To begin, you will need to preheat your oven. I suggest 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
Step Two: Line a baking tin with a baking sheet.
Step Three: In a mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Leave to one side.
Step Four: In a secondary mixing bowl, add the butter and brown sugar and whisk together until the mixture turns light. Then add the egg and vanilla extract and again whisk together.
Step Five: Add the flour mixture (from bowl 1 to bowl 2) and whisk until combined.
Step Six: Add the Cadbury Mini eggs and chocolate chips so that all the ingredients are together and formed into a batter.
Step Seven: Scoop around a tablespoon of batter out at a time (with a spoon) and place onto your baking tin. Level off each one and be sure to leave around 2-3 inches of space between the ‘cookies’.
Step Eight: Bake for 10-12 minutes – longer if you like them more crispy, shorter if you prefer a doughier cookie.
Step Nine: Remove from the oven, set aside on a baking rack to cool for 5-10 minutes.
Step Ten: Serve and enjoy!
Other Things To Consider When Making Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies
Below, I outline a few things you can experiment with and try.
You Can Customize Your Cookies
The above (and below) recipe make for great Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies.
However, you can always make a few simple changes, or additions, to customize them further.
For instance, the chocolate chips.
You could use dark chocolate, or even white chocolate chips, but I’m more of a fan of milk!
Or you could try different types of flour, such as almond flour, if you are gluten intolerant, for instance.
Be Mindful Of The Cooking Temperature
Make sure you do not bake these cookies on too high a heat. Otherwise you risk burning them.
In fact, it’s best to preheat the oven first and put on a timer.
Check on them after 8 minutes and every 1 minute thereafter.
Be Careful On Cooking Times
These cookies quickly go from being doughy to crisp in just a few minutes of cooking time.
You need to be mindful and careful of cooking times!
Make More Than You Think You Need!
These cookies are so delicious, they will be sure to go down well.
So I would advise you cook a few more than you think you need to ensure everyone can enjoy them.
Plus, you may find that a few don’t cook as well as others (or they don’t look as great!)
So if you have a few more, you’ll be covered. And you can always eat those too!
What To Eat Your Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies With
On Their Own
These cookies are so good on their own, you needn’t have to have them with anything.
Nonetheless, cookies and ice cream is a winning combination.
I suggest vanilla ice cream, or a even a chocolate ice cream, if you did fancy the extra indulgence.
With Chocolate Sauce
A good chocolate sauce will also take these cookies to the next level, if you had some lying around or were keen to try it!
