Cadbury Chocolate Chip Cookies

Easter is TOMORROW & Cadbury Chocolate Chips Cookies are the perfect treat.  I don’t know about y’all but the great “Quarantine of 2020” has really thrown off my calendar and time frames in general.  I just realized I never posted these amazing cookies for your Easter (at home) Celebrations.  Good thing is they are super quick to make!!

Cadbury Egg Fun!

Since I was a little kid I have always loved the Cadbury Eggs.  I just love the crunchy shell with the chocolate inside.  I also love the pastel colors!  I have used them as a centerpiece on my table, as a fun snack or in cookies like these or on top of a fun thumbprint cookie.

I know what you are might be thinking… who knew there were so many options?  Maybe you should give them a chance…you might just like them.

Chocolate Options

The beauty of these cookies is you can use whatever chocolate chips, or chunks, you have on hand.  For this batch I used semisweet chunks that I had on hand.  You could use milk chocolate chips, semi sweet, white chocolate or a combo of any of the above.  You could also use peanut butter chips for a little peanut butter bite.

The combinations are ENDLESS… have some fun with it.

Sprinkle Fun!

To add even more Easter fun I topped the cookies with a few extra eggs, chocolate chunks, sea salt (because I add them to all mu chocolate chip cookies) and SPRINKLES!  Now I understand that sprinkles may not be everyone’s favorites and you could definately leave them off if you would like but I just love the little extra fun they bring to the cookies.

This time I used mini bunny sprinkles and egg sprinkles but anything you have on hand would work.  This is a super fun way to get the kids involved… they can help sprinkle!!
