What is it about Easter Candy? I am not a candy person in general, but seriously, these mini Cadbury Chocolate Eggs are the bomb, rich Cadbury chocolate in a crisp candy shell.

You should try these Greek Easter Cookies also called Koulourakia, they would compliment your holiday dessert table so well.

Plus their pretty pastel colors make them so appealing in baked goods, like this simple Cadbury Cookie Cake. And don’t even get me started on Whoppers Robin Eggs!

During this time of limited ingredients and shortages, I hope you can either make or find store bought ingredients.

Baking Cadbury Egg Cookies

Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop all dough onto parchment lined half sheet pan and chill covered with plastic wrap for 1-2 hours.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees, place cookies 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet, then bake for 10-12 minutes until set and golden at edges.

How to Decorate Cadbury Egg Nest Cookies

As soon as they come out of the oven, make an indentation in the center of the cookie, I used a muddler.

You could also use the back of a tablespoon, bottom of an ice cream scoop or other kitchen utensil.

Let cool on the rack for 3-4 minutes, then transfer to wire cooling rack and cool completely.

Add a little food coloring to frosting, start small and mix, before adding more color.

Once cooled, prepare vanilla frosting, or again, if all you can get your hands on is store bought frosting, then use that!

lace frosting inside piping bag and frost tops of cookies. Place 1-3 Cadbury Mini Eggs in the center.

When I made these, I halved my buttercream recipe. Frosting freezes great, just bring to room temperature, then whipping with mixer or by hand until desired consistency.

Frosting also keeps in refrigerator up to 2 weeks in airtight container.



If you also choose to make ganache for mud puddle cookies, simply spoon a small amount of ganache in the center of the cookie, then place the Cadbury Mini Eggs on top.

You can also use warmed up chocolate frosting.


I froze my cookie dough since I made these in stages. If freezing dough, wrap cookie balls in plastic or parchment paper, then place in freezer baggie.

Thaw for 15-30 minutes on counter before baking.

Undecorated baked cookies are easy to freeze too! Place in plastic container, layering wax paper between layers.

Can you freeze frosted cookies?

Yes, you can freeze frosted cookies!

  • The best way to freeze frosted cookies is, first “flash” freezing, so the frosting doesn’t get smushed.
  • Place cookies 1 inch apart on a cookie sheet and freeze for 1 hour.
  • Once firm, place cookies in freezer baggies (just be careful where you store them) or my preference in an airtight storage container.
  • Depending on the cookie you can stack them once frozen, by placing a piece of wax paper between layers. Bring to room temperature before eating.

Happy Easter, friends! Lean on the only One who can replace fear with hope, sorrow with joy, anxiety with peace and comfort. Jesus welcomes you, anytime, any place!

    I had a leftover bag of cadbury mini eggs that I had hidden and forgot about, so even though Easter already happened I made these and am so glad I did! They were super cute and so delicious!
