Easter Chocolate Chip Cookies

This Easter Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe is so easy to make and so much fun! This simple Easter cookie recipe produces soft chewy cookies that are loaded with both chocolate chips and mini eggs for a cute and extra-delicious Easter treat. Best of all, it requires no softened butter and whips up in one bowl!

Chocolate chip cookies are always a good idea. But when you add mini eggs into the mix too, they are a downright irresistible! Not that I’ve ever been able to resist a cookie, lets be honest.

Mini eggs are a weakness of ours and so its not surprising that they are finding their way into our grocery cart with every shopping trip. Those adorable pastel-coloured mini eggs are easily my favourite treat this time of year, so it goes without saying they are turning up in any baked good I can dream up.

This Easter Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe is perfect for this time of year. They are super easy to whip up (in one bowl!) and require no softened butter. So if you are dreaming up this idea and want to get to baking right away (so that you can gobble up cookies asap), there is no need to wait on that stick of butter!

The cookies are soft, chewy and studded with all the chocolatey-goodness you desire!

How to make these Easter-themed Cookies

  1. Mix the wet ingredients and sugar: In a large bowl, mix the melted butter, egg, milk, sugars, and vanilla extract.

  2. Add the dry ingredients: Add the salt, baking soda, and flour into the wet mixture and stir until everything is well incorporated.

  3. Fold in the chocolate chips and mini eggs: Fold in the chocolate chips and mini eggs. Place the cookie mix in the fridge and chill for 1-2 hours.

  4. Scoop and bake: Using a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop (or heaping tablespoons), arrange 9 mounds on each baking sheet. The cookies will spread while cooking so be sure to leave space in between mounds to prevent touching. [Optional: add a few more crushed or whole mini eggs on top of each cookie]. Bake the cookies for 15 minutes or until the edges begin to set but the center is still soft. Let them cool on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes.

How to freeze chocolate chip cookies

To freeze cookie dough, scoop the dough into mounds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place the baking sheet in a freezer. Once the dough balls are frozen solid, place them in a freezer safe plastic bag.

When you are ready to bake, you have two options. You can defrost the cookie dough overnight in the fridge and then bake the cookies as instructed. This is the preferred method and yields the best results. But if you are impatient like me, you can bake them frozen. You will need to add a few more minutes of baking time if you are doing this.

I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we do!

Happy Easter!
