Easter is my favourite time of year for baking sweet treats and I love finding new ways to use Cadburys Mini Eggs in the kitchen. Easter wouldn’t be Easter without Mini Eggs! Our latest bake are these delicious Mini Egg Cookie Bars which are like a super easy Mini Egg traybake.

How to make these easy Mini Egg Cookie Bars

To make these Easter cookie bars you just need typical ingredients you’d use for chocolate chip cookies – butter, flour and sugar along with an egg, a little milk, vanilla and Mini Eggs. For this recipe we use plain flour and a little baking powder but you could give self raising flour a go if it’s all you have. But, one thing you really need to do is make sure you use real butter – this isn’t a time to be using margarine and you really will taste the difference.

We also use two different types of sugar in this recipe – caster sugar and light brown sugar which work together to give such a great cookie flavour, especially when accompanied by the vanilla extract and chocolate Mini Eggs.

This recipe simply uses Mini Eggs for the chocolate flavour but you could also add milk chocolate chips if you wanted for extra chocolate flavour. We also leave the Mini Eggs whole but if you prefer you can add crushed Mini Eggs to the mix and they would work well too.

For this recipe we use an 8 inch square baking pan but you can use a bigger pan and just spread the mixture out as much as you want to in the baking dish to give whatever thickness cookie bar you would like.

These Mini Eggs Cookie Bars are just like Mini Egg Cookies but they look much more sophisticated, have a uniform shape and look great in Easter treat bags, as part of a buffet spread or on the table at a school bake sale. This Mini Eggs tray bake is easy to slice and can make as many portions as you like – although our 8×8 square tin makes 16 good size square Mini Egg bars. 

I actually can’t wait to make more cookie traybakes in all different flavours. These perfect Easter egg bars were such a hit with the children and everyone else who has tried them. They are delicious and such great Easter treats.
