When I’m cruising through the grocery store and I see Cadbury Mini Eggs for the first time on the shelves, it’s like a record scratch. When I saw them, I thought, WE MUST make Cake Mix Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies!
And then I think I texted April and she agreed and then we waxed philosophical about the deliciousness of Cadbury Mini Eggs for a good long while.
And as it turns out, April was so excited about Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies, that she whipped up a second variety for your chocolatey cookie eating pleasure. Check them out HERE.
As impossible as it may seem to improve upon the crispy shelled magic of a Cadbury Mini Egg, I found that adding them to a cake mix cookie was a buttery, delicious way of prolonging my enjoyment of this seasonal treat. Because, if motivated (or left unsupervised,) I can power through an entire bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs in under a day, but would consider wolfing down a whole batch of cookies pretty challenging.
Challenging, not impossible.
Now that I’ve sampled these Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies for myself, you can bet your pretty little Easter bonnet that I’ll be stocking up on Cadbury Mini Eggs so I can bake these on repeat through our Easter festivities.
After that, I’ll likely be rationing my remaining chocolate eggs through June.
Cake Mix Cadbury Mini Egg Cookies Recipe
- 1 box butter cake mix
- 2 eggs beaten
- 5 Tbsp melted butter
- 1 1/2 cups Cadbury Mini Eggs, chopped
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Mix together all ingredients and spread into a greased 9×13 pan.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
We opted for squares, but you could use a cookie cutter for egg or flower shaped cookies.
You could add a cream cheese or chocolate frosting (or drizzle) to these for an extra festive kick.
But really, any way you serve these, they will be a HUGE HIT with your cookie loving crowd.
