Creme Egg Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Classic chocolate chip cookies stuffed with mini creme eggs makes an easy treat for Easter.


Creme Egg Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Easter is probably my favorite holiday when it comes to candy. Chocolate bunnies, marshmallow peeps, red and yellow jelly beans, and my absolute favorite – Cadbury Creme Eggs. There is something magical about a chocolate egg with that sweet creamy center. A few years ago, I discovered that they started making mini creme eggs to go along with their cousin, solid chocolate mini eggs. I knew I wanted to stuff the mini eggs into cookies, and what better dessert than two of my favorites combined – Creme Egg Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. Take your classic cookie dough recipe, wrap it around mini eggs, and bake. Soon you’ll have a treat that even the Easter bunny can’t top.

Stuffing candy into cookies is nothing new. I’ve done it with peanut butter cups and caramel squares. I chose the mini creme eggs because I like them better, but you can absolutely use the solid chocolate mini eggs as well. If you happen to run out of mini eggs, you can use your favorite chocolate candy on hand.

The key to these cookies is making sure the butter and dough aren’t too warm. I made the mistake of letting my butter sit out too long for the first batch. For best results, cut a stick of butter into tablespoon pieces then let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. You’ll also want to make sure the cookie dough completely seals the egg.

Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 12 mini creme eggs, unwrapped
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In another large bowl, beat together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in the vanilla and egg. Gradually beat in the flour then add the chocolate chips.
  3. Take about a tablespoon and a half of dough, flatten it, then wrap it around one mini egg. Make sure it's sealed all the way around. Repeat with the remaining 12 eggs. Chill the dough balls for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place the chilled dough on the sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes or until brown and firm. Cool for 5 minutes on the tray before carefully removing to a cooling rack. Serve warm or cool completely.

  1. I detest the regular sized creme eggs… they’re just too sickly sweet for me, but MAN OH MAN, could I ever feast on those cookies! This has been Pinned, Stumbled, and generally shouted about from the mountaintops!

  2. I just got the mini eggs yesterday! They were hiding on a bottom shelf. So cute and I love the packaging. Just the right size to stuff into cookies.

  3. Aaaand I’ve gained 20 pounds looking at that. Those mini creme eggs are decadently dangerous when frozen too. Stick them on fresh pancakes… heaven!

  4. Those little eggs are magical, and I love the full size ones too…and another commenters idea to put them on pancakes?! Must try, along with these cookies!

  5. wow–not only is this a super creative idea, but they also look heavenly. I’ll be buying some mini eggs this weekend for a party–this would be great to make. Thanks!

  6. I still haven’t tried the creme eggs (I know?! I don’t know why!) but I LOOOVE stuffing stuff inside ccc’s–and yours look completely, utterly, insanely, YUM!

  7. Ok, just whip these in a blender and hook it straight to my veins. I need these gorgeous, perfectly golden, creme-egg-stuffed babies in my blood stream stat. Imma be loading up on cheap Easter candy as soon as the holiday passes and then these are happening!
