This deep dish chocolate chip cookie with Cadbury Mini Eggs is a heavenly Easter treat. Topped with vanilla ice cream and served warm, it’s a dessert everyone will love!
If you ask me what my favorite candy is my response will be Easter. Yep, I’m a sucker for Easter candy…all of it. You don’t like Peeps? Perfect! Bring them to me. Those colorful marshmallow eggs with the candy shell that don’t taste anything like marshmallows? They are amazing. Heck, I even love those bags of black, licorice flavored jelly beans. But the Holy Grail all Easter candy has to be anything from Cadbury.

I dream of Cadbury Creme Eggs all year long. (Do you think these Cadbury Eggs from the UK taste even better? I need to find out.) I stash them in the back of the fridge, hoping that no one will find them so in August I have enjoy my moment of weakness. But those Cadbury Mini Eggs make me melt. The milk chocolate has a slight malty taste and the candy shell is perfectly crisp.
Another amazing thing is deep dish chocolate chip cookies that are hot out of the oven and gooey on the inside. Of course they have to be topped with vanilla ice cream. The kids have been begging me to make one and I got the brilliant idea to add my favorite seasonal Cadbury Mini Eggs! It was the most glorious combination. (Oh my gosh! They have 5 pound bags of Cadbury Mini Eggs on Amazon. Help me!)
My favorite part of making the Deep Dish Chocolate Mini Egg Cookie was taking a hammer to break up the Mini Eggs. Destruction is fun! I found it worked best to put the candy into a Ziplock bag and then wrap the bag in a dish towel before hammering. I love taking out my aggressions on chocolate!
