Cadbury stuffed chocolate chip cookies are a fun cookie recipe for Easter. Each cookie has part of a crème egg baked inside so when you take a bite you can see the filling.
I’ve always enjoyed Easter-themed candy. I’m a pretty visual person and I love pastel and spring colors, so I eat twice as much Easter holiday candy just because everything is wrapped in pretty spring colors or come in cute egg form.
Until this year, I’ve always stayed away from Cadbury crème eggs. I’m not sure when or why, but I was under the impression that I didn’t like them. However, I saw a couple of dessert recipes using Cadbury eggs and suddenly I wanted to try one. So, I decided to make Cadbury stuffed chocolate chip cookies.
Well, I really ended up enjoying them, which maybe isn’t a good thing because they are so sweet and a little expensive. It was hard to part with them to do a test run of these cookies, but luckily, they worked.
I basically made chocolate chip cookies with Easter M&Ms and stuffed each one with a crème egg. I was worried that the eggs would just melt into a puddle during baking but they remained relatively intact, just more squished. I love that you can still see the yolk oozing out.
- Softened unsalted butter
- Dark brown sugar
- Granulated sugar
- Vanilla extract
- All-purpose flour
- Baking soda
- Easter M&Ms
- Cadbury crème eggs
All you do is make the cookie dough and then chill it for at least one hour. This will firm up the dough so it’s easy to stuff with the Cadbury eggs. The cookie base is similar to my favorite soft chocolate chip cookies except instead of chocolate chips I used M&Ms.
How to Stuff Cookies with Cadbury Eggs
The Cadbury eggs are pretty big so for these cookies, I cut them in half.
Take approximately four tablespoons of dough and flatten it with your hands. Place one of the egg halves on the dough.
Wrap the dough so the yolk part of the egg is facing you (on its side). This way, when you take a bite of the cookie you will see the yolk.
Make sure the dough is completely sealed around the egg and that it is thick enough to hold the egg. That way, the crème filling won’t ooze out as the cookies bake. Once you’ve formed the cookie, place it on a baking sheet. You can top it with a few extra M&Ms if desired.
Once the cookies are baked, leave them to cool on the cookie sheets. If you try to move them too soon, they might break.

- Take about four tablespoons of dough and flatten dough with hands. Place egg inside dough. Make sure to wrap the dough around the egg so that the egg's open yolk portion faces is on its side (so that when the person bites in, the yolk is exposed). Make sure dough is completely sealed around egg and dough is thick enough so that the inside won't seep through. Press a few additional m&ms on surface of dough ball if desired.
- Bake the cookies for 10-11 minutes, until barely golden brown around the edges. Remove and let cool on the cookie sheets. Do not try to remove before they are finished cooling or cookies may break.
