These are colourful Easter-themed cookies incorporating a classic Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe with Cadbury Mini eggs!
My cousin Lynne came over and we decided to make some Easter themed chocolate chip cookies.I ended up buying tons of small packages of the Cadbury Mini Eggs at a local Pharmacy store rather than going to the grocery store and purchasing the Cadbury Eggs in bulk. Unlike my soft chew chocolate chip cookies, this recipe uses all butter which means they plump up quite nice if you refrigerate or freeze your dough before baking!

Preparing the Cookie Dough
First preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, and lined your cookie tray with parchment paper. Cream salted butter (room temperature), and sugar together. Add eggs one at time, beating between additions, then add your vanilla extract. In a separate bowl you will whisk your flour and baking soda together. Add your flour mixture to your butter mixture and beat until well combined.
Preparing the Cadbury Mini Eggs
Place the cadbury mini eggs into a zipblock bag and crush the eggs into smaller pieces using a rolling pin, or other hard object (Be gentle on your counter surfaces!). Next, measure 1.5 cups of crushed cadbury eggs and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. You may also choose to do all cadbury mini eggs if you’d like more colour in your chocolate chips!
Mix Cadbury Eggs into Cookie Dough
I use a spatula to mix in my chocolate chips and cadbury mini eggs, since at this point the cookie dough is quite thick. Although an optional step, I do recommend refrigerating your cookie dough before baking for at least 15 minutes. I prefer my cookies about 2 to 2.5 inches in diameter, so I scoop a rounded tablespoon onto my cookie tray lined with parchment paper, spacing them about 3-4 inches a part.
Bake your cookies!
Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes, or bake until the outer edges of the cookies are slightly browned. Remove from oven and use a thin spatula to remove cookies from cookie tray and onto a drying rack.
