Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Let cookies cool on the pan.

Caramel Sauce

Let cookies fully cool to room temperature before adding the caramel sauce and chocolate.

In a medium sized microwave safe bowl, add the unwrapped caramel squares and heavy cream. Heat in the microwave in 20 second increments, stirring in between, until smooth.

Evenly divide the caramel sauce over the cookies. Spoon the sauce in the centre of each cookie and spread, making sure to not spread over the edge. Work fast because the sauce does harden quickly.

Chocolate Ganache

After the caramel is on the cookies let them sit in the fridge for a few minutes while you make the ganache.

In a medium sized microwave safe bowl add the chocolate chips, set aside. In another microwave safe bowl add the heavy cream and heat till just before boiling, (about 30 seconds).

Pour the heated cream over the chocolate chips and let sit for a few minutes. Mix chocolate and cream together. If there are still chunks of chocolate in the microwave for a few seconds and stir again. The ganache should be completely smooth. Evenly spoon and smooth the ganache over the caramel layer of each cookie.

Let cookie sit in the fridge for a few minutes to stiffen the ganache before enjoying.

Storing The Cookies

These cookies should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge. You can keep them at room temperature but the ganache will melt in a warm house. When storing in the fridge be sure to bring cookies to room temperature before enjoying.

Can I Make the Cookies Smaller?

Yes, you can definitely make the cookies smaller. Instead, scoop 1.5 tablespoons worth of cookie dough and bake for 7-8 minutes. The amount of caramel sauce and chocolate ganache stay the same.

Easter Mini Egg Cookies

Easter mini easter egg cookies are the perfect Easter dessert. These no chill chewy cookies are loaded with mini egg chocolates. They’re colourful, pretty, and so festive!

Who doesn’t love mini eggs? I get so excited as soon as I see them hit the grocery store shelves. My two kids 2 and 4 years old were thrilled to bake with them. My 2 year old girl now refers to them as baking eggs when she wants one to snack on.

If you are baking with your kids too I recommend making sure you have so extras around because a lot of mini eggs did get eaten before making it into the cookie dough.

Mini Egg Cookies

How to Make These Easter Mini Egg Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Place the 1 & 1/4 C of mini eggs inside a zip lock bag and crush the eggs in half. In a separate zip lock bag crush the 1/4 C of mini eggs in half as well, these are the eggs you will use to top the cookies. Set both bags aside.

In a large bowl or stand mixer cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. I mix mine for about 3 minutes. Add in vanilla, egg, and egg yolk. Beat until mixture is well combined.

In a second bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients into wet and mix until just combined. Fold in the 1 and 1/4 cup of crushed mini eggs.

Using a large cookie/ice cream scoop (about 3 tbsp worth of dough) drop cookie dough onto baking sheet. Leave at least 2 inches of space between cookies. Using the remaining 1/4 cup of mini eggs, add extra chocolate to the top and upper sides of the cookie dough ball.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are golden brown on the edges. The cookies will still seem raw in the middle but will set while cooling. Cool on cookie sheets for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

TIPS FOR PERFECT MINI EGG COOKIES

Use parchment paper to line your pans. Using cookie spray or butter will make the cookies greasy.

Have fresh baking soda, if it is old and stale cookies will be flat.

Do not use melted butter, if anything you want your butter to be on the colder side. Using melted butter will cause the cookies to spread to much and become flat.

Use room temperature eggs. Eggs at room temperature break down easier and incorporate better into the dough.

If you forget to take your eggs out ahead of time run them under warm water for a few minutes to heat them up.

If heating butter in the microwave to soften it first cut it into small pieces, heat for 12 seconds, and touch with finger. You should be able to easily poke into it. If not heat for another few seconds. It is better to be slightly cold than melted.

For chewy cookies do not over bake. Cookies may still seem soft in the middle but will harden up after cooling. Once edges are browning the cookies are done.
