I decided to make these as an excuse to buy more Cadbury Mini Eggs. When my husband said, “Really? You’re buying another bag?” I replied, “Yes, one bag is for me and one bag is for baking.” So then, I had to figure out what to do with the “baking bag” and well, chocolate chip cookies were perfect idea! They are so good! I mean, chocolate chip cookies are delicious, Cadbury Mini Eggs are delicious, so it’s just obvious that Cadbury Mini Egg Easter Chocolate Chip Cookies are going to be delicious, too!

You’ll need a few ingredients to make these from scratch, or you can just use frozen cookie dough and add some crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs to the dough. Your choice. I don’t judge store-bought! But I will say that my mom’s chocolate chip cookie recipe is perfect and it’s what I used to make these cookies, so I highly recommend the “from scratch” version.

Crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs in a Bowl

 

I crushed my Cadbury Mini Eggs into little bits by putting them into a ziplock bag and rolling over them with my rolling pin. But a hammer works, too! Just be careful not to chip your countertop!

After mixing the cookie dough, I folded bits and pieces of the crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs into the dough, but I saved just enough to also place some of the bigger Mini Eggs on top of the cookies before baking just to make the cookies a bit more colorful.
