This recipe for Cadbury Mini Eggs Cookies uses ingredients you probably already have on hand. For this recipe you will need the cookie basics such as butter, sugar, flour, vanilla, baking soda, and chocolate chips, plus some additional ingredients. Here are some notes on the ingredients:

  • Butter: be sure to use room temperature unsalted butter so that the ingredients mix together well.
  • Chocolate Chips: here, I recommend using semi-sweet chocolate chips. However, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate would all be delicious.
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs: you will need to lightly crush the eggs before folding them into the batter. To do so, place the mini eggs in a zip top bag and gently crush with a rolling pin or pan. I only crush them so they break in half, rather than shatter into small pieces.

How to Make Cadbury Mini Eggs Cookies

If you love Cadbury Mini Eggs, you are in for a real treat. This tasty recipe comes together in minutes and is a great addition to your Easter dessert menu!

Step 1: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside while you prepare the other ingredients.

Step 2: In a large bowl, use a handheld mixer to cream together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla. Then, mix in the flour mixture until well combined.

Step 3: Fold in the crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs and chocolate chips. This will be a thick batter, so do the best you can to incorporate the ingredients.

Step 4: Once the batter is complete, scoop the dough on to the lined baking sheets using either a cookie scoop or spoon.

Bake the cookies for in a preheated oven for about 12 minutes. You want the cookies to be golden in color, but be careful not to over bake them.

  • Don’t crush the Cadbury Mini Eggs too much. Leave large chunks of the candy so that you can really get the flavor in the cookie. I like to crush mine just so it splits in half.
  • For the chocolate chips, use semi-sweet if you have them. If not, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate would work great.

Can you buy Cadbury Mini Eggs year round?

Sadly, no. In the United States, these eggs are only available around Easter time, usually a month or two before the holiday. Be sure to pick up as many as you can and store them in the freezer to keep them fresh.

    I tried these cookies a couple of weeks ago to see if my grandkids liked them. They were a big hit with everyone especially the kids. Getting ready today to make them again for Easter. Thank you for a great recipe to add to my collection!
    P.S. I bought several more bags of Cadbury minis and put in the freezer to bake later. Thanks again for a great recipe!

  2. These are the first cookies I have made in a long time that have turned out “looking” exactly like the picture. The taste is fantastic also. So many recipes promise to be like this and just are not. While baking they puffed up quite a bit so I was worried but then they fell flatter and mmmmmm! So impressed!

    I love the crunchy candy texture with the chocolate eggs xx

    What a great recipe – and so appropriate for Easter. I used micro Mini Eggs, found them unexpectedly in a local pharmacy (in Nova Scotia, Canada). Not having to crush the eggs saved time! A definite recipe to make again, and any add-ins could be used. Thanks for sharing!

    Do you mix the egg, vanilla then flour into butter/sugar mix using the hand held mixer or just with a spoon? What size cookie scoop? Do they spread whilst cooking? Thanks

    1. Mix together the wet ingredients (egg, vanilla, butter, sugar) then add the flour to that mixture… you can use a handheld mixer on low speed. I use a small standard sized cookie scoop. Or you can just use a about a tablespoon and a half measurement. They will spread about an inch all around. Enjoy!
