Gooey, Chewy Warm Easter Egg Cookies; served warm and cooked just right, these cookies are a sweet delight with a melted caramel chocolate center.
These cookies make an awesome dessert, afternoon snack and even a fantastic Easter gift.
We wouldn’t be able to have Easter without a delicious recipe from our contributor Kirsten over at Treat Yourself Sweeter. If you need something to complete that sugar rush then these Easter egg cookies are going to be a real hit for you!
Just be warned, you may not be able to stop at one…..or two for that matter!
Well, why not?!
I was Googling, Pinteresting and blogging and noticed a whole heap of cupcakes with Easter eggs in the middle. One word- YUM!
So, I thought… why not cookies? Really, I had a little craving for cookies.
Okay honestly, I have had a craving for anything chocolate. Eh. I blame tiredness…
You know those days when you raid the fridge like a ravaged wolf and then think ‘why did I eat all that?!’
Hand up, that is me recently.
These cookies are one darn good fix for my problem.
Perhaps just adding to, feeding my cookie habits.. but hey, I am happy to have some of these cookies on hand for midnight munchies!
These cookies are sweet, soft and chewy. Oh, and did I mention a melted chocolate caramel center?
Really, you can actually add any of our favourite little Easter eggs, I was considering Turskish delight, Crunchie and Strawberry Crème.
I actually took all packets to the self serve counter, scanned them and then asked the lady to cancel them… 3 times. Yeah, I was THAT annoying person. In my defence, I was the only one there or I wouldn’t have done it.
I just couldn’t decide, but I knew that whatever I chose, I would eat them all. I figured that I didn’t need all of them and they were better left there.
A little while ago I was watching a show and saw a lady saying that to make chewy, soft cookies that you should let the dough sit in the fridge before cooking. I decided to try it and it worked really well.
I let this dough ‘set’ in the fridge for a couple of hours.
In fact, I find a great way to do these is to make the mixture the night before, leave it over night and then you have warm cookies (for breakfast).
If you can’t wait, try putting it in the freezer for half an hour, it won’t be exactly the same but it is better than nothing!
Can’t be bothered rolling them all into balls?
I get that, so I made these too.
I pressed the cookie dough into a mini tart tin and pushed roughly chopped Easter eggs into the top.
Love the look of the ice cream? It is a No Churn Chocolate Caramel Easter Egg Ice Cream. Oh yeah!
These delights make an awesome Easter gift or it is a great way to share the love with all of those extra Easter eggs laying around, unless you’re like me and you have no extra laying around!
Delicious Easter Egg Cookies Recipe:
- 125 grams butter -melted
- 1 cup (loosely packed) brown sugar
- 1 cup sifted self raising flour
- 1 cup sifted plain flour
- 1 teaspoon sifted corn flour
- 2 eggs - lightly beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Approx 30 mini caramel Easter eggs
- Melt the butter and add the brown sugar, stirring to mix.
- Sift in the flours and cornflour.
- Add the eggs, vanilla and then gently mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
- Cover with plastic wrap and put the mix in the fridge to rest for at least a couple of hours (I often try to leave them over night)
- When ready to cook, pre heat the oven to 170 degrees and line a cookie tray with baking paper.
- Take the mixture out of the fridge and take a tablespoon of mixture.
- Place an Easter egg in the middle and then roll into the ball.
- Cook for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are a slightly pale colour and have spread into a disc shape. The mixture will still be soft. Leave on tray to slightly cool and harden before moving. Try not to over cook (eg rise and harden) or they will not have the same texture.
Prep time includes chilling time
