Here is another recipe that uses my favourite Easter chocolate – Cadbury’s Mini Eggs. This time instead of a cake, I have decided to use the mini eggs in a cookie recipe. This is a great recipe to try out over the Easter weekend!
115g Soften Butter
100g Soft Brown Sugar
50g Granulated Sugar
1 x Egg
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
330g Plain Flour
½ Tsp Bicarbonate Soda
4-6 Tbsp Milk
100g Milk Chocolate
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4. In a large mixing bowl add the soften butter, soft brown sugar and granulated sugar. Mix all of the ingredients until they become paler in colour.
2. Next, add the egg and vanilla extract and mix again.
3. Add the plain flour and bicarbonate soda and mix until all of the dry ingredients are fully incorporated.
4. Pour the some of the milk into the bowl and mix until a dough is formed (you may not need to use all of the milk).
5. Chop half of the mini eggs into small pieces. Add the mini eggs to the bowl and fold until all the mini eggs are evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.
6. Divide the cookie dough into 14 pieces. I usually use an ice cream scoop (I forgot to bring mine back from university) and then chill the dough in the fridge for 1 hour.
7. Remove the cookie dough from the fridge and place 4 pieces of cookie dough onto a lined baking tray. Flatten the dough slightly and then place 3-5 mini eggs on top of the cookie dough.
8. Bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes until the cookies become golden brown on the edges.
9. Remove the cookies from the oven and leave the cookies to cool for 20 minutes on a wire rack.
10. Melt the chocolate and transfer into a piping bag. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookies.
