Easy Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies

Confession time: Cadbury mini eggs are my Easter candy obsession! Scratch that; they might just be my all-time favorite sweets. I get so excited when I see them gracing the shelves at the grocery store. However, my well-intentioned plans to buy them for baking usually crumble as I succumb to the temptation of snacking on them beforehand. But hey, this time, I managed to resist the urge, and I’m so happy I did because these brownie mix cookies have taken the indulgence of those chocolate eggs to a whole new level. You know me; I’m all about kitchen shortcuts, and these cookies, born from a brownie mix, are the ultimate hack. This fudgy treat is so good; I’m convinced they will even get the Easter Bunny’s stamp of approval.

Making the Brownie Cookies

  1. Preheat and prepare – Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  2. Mix dry ingredients – In a large bowl, whisk together the brownie mix and all-purpose flour until well combined.
  3. Add wet ingredients – Add the eggs and canola oil into the dry mix, stirring until well combined for a smooth cookie dough.
  4. Smash mini eggs – Place the mini eggs in a resealable bag and give them a few satisfying smashes with a rolling pin or meat mallet to break them into chunks.
  5. Fold in mini eggs – Fold 2/3 of the smashed mini eggs into the cookie dough.
  6. Scoop – Use a medium cookie scoop to portion the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving a space of at least 1 1/2 inches between the cookie dough balls.
  7. Top with mini eggs – Press the remaining mini egg pieces into the top of each cookie, adding an extra layer of texture and flavor.
  8. Bake to perfection – Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are set, ensuring a gooey center.
  9. Cool and enjoy – Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy your effortlessly indulgent mini egg chocolaty cookies!

Variations and substitutions

Giant cookies – Opt for a larger-than-life treat by using a large cookie scoop to create giant versions of these brownie cookies. Adjust the baking time accordingly, aiming for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are set.

Triple chocolate – Elevate the chocolatey goodness by incorporating a cup of chocolate chips into the cookie batter. I would recommend semi-sweet chocolate, but you could use dark, white, or milk chocolate chips or chocolate chunks. 

Different candy eggs – While I used Cadbury eggs in this recipe, you could also use Hershey’s candy coated eggs. The Hershey’s eggs have a brighter shell and also include a green egg.

Homemade brownie cookies – Instead of a brownie mix, use your favorite brownie cookie recipe to make these cookies.

Tips for success

  • Resealable bag – Place the mini eggs in a resealable plastic bag before smashing them. This helps contain the pieces, preventing them from flying everywhere and making cleanup a breeze.
  • Avoid cutting with a knife – Avoid using a knife to cut the mini eggs due to their round shape, which can roll and pose a safety hazard. Instead, opt for a controlled and safe smashing process using a rolling pin or meat mallet. I don’t recommend using whole mini eggs in the cookies, as they can be challenging to bite through. Smashing the mini eggs ensures a delightful chocolatey experience in every bite.
  • Monitor baking time – Keep a close eye on the cookies during baking to prevent overcooking. They are ready when the edges are set and have a crackly top, but the center remains slightly gooey.
