Ingredients – What you need for the Cadbury Mini Eggs Cookies
When it comes to dry ingredients this is one of the staples you will find in most cookie recipes. Flour provides the base and structure for the cookie dough. We like to use all-purpose flour and you will need 1 1/3 cups. When measuring the flour use a spoon and sift it before adding it to your cookie mixture.
Brown Sugar and Granulated White Sugar
Brown sugar will help to give that chewy texture we know and love when it comes to cookies. You only need 1/3 cup of it and it will produce incredible chewy cookies that are the perfect texture. You also need to add white sugar to this recipe as this gives that sweetness. You need 1/2 cup of granulated sugar for these cookies.
Baking soda is such an important element to add to the flour mixture. It helps with the rising and the overall shape of the cookie. You only need 1/2 a tsp for this recipe.
Because you are using unsalted butter this is where you can control the flavor. You will only need 1/2 teaspoon.
For this recipe, you need 1/2 cup of butter that is softened at room temperature. Unsalted butter is best for this recipe so you can control the flavor. You can soften the butter by leaving it out on the counter for 30 minutes before you start baking the Cadbury mini egg cookies.
One large egg is the perfect addition to get the dough’s texture just right. The egg yolk also helps with that chewy texture and golden color of the cookies.
You can’t go wrong with the vanilla flavor when it comes to these delicious cookies and the flavor works so well for these Cadbury egg cookies. You will need 1 tsp of vanilla for this cookie recipe.
The good stuff
Finally, the best bit about these cookies is, of course, the chocolate element. For this recipe, you need the star of the show, which is Cadbury mini eggs. You need 1 cup of them for these tasty cookies. Alongside the mini eggs, you also need 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips and 1/4 cup of milk chocolate chips. Yummy!
