Cadbury egg cookies

cadbury egg cookies

What?!?! Chocolate chip cookies with cadbury mini-eggs baked right in?!?! THAT’S RIGHT!! This was another inspiration of my husband, culinary genius. These are chocolate chip cookies – the kind that are just the right amount of crispy on the outside and just the right amount of chewy on the inside, with the better part of a bag of cadbury mini-eggs mixed into the batter. The mini-eggs are milk chocolate, the chocolate chips are bittersweet chocolate, and the cookies are ridiculously tasty. I love the way that the candy shell on the blue eggs changes color as it bakes, and comes out a real robin’s-egg blue. So pretty! But they won’t last very long for you to admire them!

Here’s the Beastie Boys with Egg Man.

1 stick of butter (1/2 cup) (unsalted, and softened)
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1 cup cadbury mini eggs

Cream the butter and sugar till fluffyish. Add the vanilla and egg, and mix well. Add all of the dry ingredients, and beat till you have a nice batter. Stir in the chocolate chips and the eggs.

Lightly butter 2 baking sheets and preheat the oven to 350. Drop the cookies by big teaspoonfuls onto the sheets, leaving a few inches around each.

Cook for about 15 minutes. They take a little while because they’re quite thick. When the bottom is starting to brown, and the top is less shiny and doesn’t feel too mushy, take them out and let them cool on a rack. Then gobble them up!

This doesn’t make too many cookies…20, maybe? So you might want to double the recipe!

    • I just googled jackfruit – it’s a relative of a mulberry tree! Wow. They look like cacti (cactuses?) almost. Have you tried one?

      Miss you too!
