Cadbury Mini Eggs
Awww! The anticipation of walking into the grocery store after Valentine’s Day and seeing those dark purple Cadbury Mini Egg bags lining the shelves. They are irresistible. A few bags go in into my cart with the thought that I better buy them now before they sell out. Of course, I will save them until just before Easter.
I get home and hide them high in a cupboard. But, the willpower to not open the bag and have just one weakens. I pop one in my mouth. I carefully crack off the outside layer. Then, I just let the smooth chocolate melt on my tongue. The milk chocolate is so creamy. I will eat just one more. But, that turns into another and then another. Can you see where this is going? Pretty soon, the whole bag is gone!
Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies
The self-discipline to not eat them all only comes from the desire to make these delicious cookies. The love of Cadbury Mini Eggs is shared by the whole family, and we have Elise to thank for creating this cookie recipe.
You can’t go wrong adding Cadbury Mini Eggs to anything in my opinion and these cookies are no exception! They are especially good, warm and melty out of the oven. Warning – you will not be able to eat just one. They are that good.
You can mix the Cadbury Mini Eggs into the dough as you are forming the cookie dough balls and have little hidden surprises on each cookie. Or, form the cookie dough into a ball and place the mini eggs on top. This makes the cookies more colorful and festive, as pictured.
