These easy to make mini egg cookies are soft and buttery with a chocolatey crunch from the mini eggs. They make a fun treat for spring and Easter.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup mini eggs, divided, from Bulk Barn Foods
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup golden brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Using a large knife, roughly chop approx. 3/4 cup of the mini eggs. In one small bowl add approx. 1/2 cup of the chopped mini eggs. In another small bowl add the remaining 1/4 cup of chopped mini eggs and the rest of the whole mini eggs (this bowl of mini eggs will be used for topping the cookies). Set bowls aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl beat butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat until well incorporated.
  4. In a medium sized bowl add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix to combine ingredients.
  5. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture and beat until dough comes together. Add the reserved 1/2 cup of the chopped mini eggs and lightly mix to combine ingredients together.
  6. Roll dough into balls approx. 1 tablespoon in size and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Space each ball 2 inches apart (be careful not to overcrowd the cookies). Lightly flatten each ball with the palm of your hand.
  7. With the last reserved bowl of mini eggs add a few broken and whole mini eggs to the top of each cookie.
  8. Bake cookies in the middle of the oven for 8 minutes or just until the bottoms are lightly browned.
  9. Now, carefully bang the cookie sheet on the counter a few times to flatten the cookies further.
  10. Remove cookies from the cookie sheet and cool on a cooling rack.


Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
