Friends, I’m so excited about this Mini Eggs Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe I’m sharing with you today! A few weeks ago I felt a little bit homesick (our family is Canadian but we’ve lived in Romania for the last year and a half or so) while browsing on Amazon. There are a few token “North American” things we can’t get here and can only find on Amazon, so every 3 months or so we make a small order of our staples like molasses, semi-sweet chocolate chips, canned pumpkin, and a few other random items that make us feel at home. But this time, I was drawn to the Mini Eggs and Creme Eggs…WHY?? I don’t know. We didn’t even really eat that stuff when we lived in Canada but for some reason I clicked ‘Add to Cart’ and here we are. I blame it on the homesickness.
To be fair, it is pretty fun to have North American stuff here and share it with all our European friends and neighbours. They usually have NO idea what we’re talking about, and no one we know here had ever heard about Mini Eggs or Creme Eggs before. But that didn’t stop them from giving them a try and LOVING them…surprise, surprise.
If you know me at all, you’ll know that I really don’t like having sweets and candy just lying around the house to be eaten, so I knew I had to make something tasty with these Mini Eggs, and I had to make it fast. And really, what’s faster and easier than a batch of chocolate chip cookies? Absolutely nothing.
These Mini Eggs Chocolate Chip Cookies are truly the perfect cookie: soft and chewy on the inside with a crispy exterior, and overflowing with warm, candy-coated chocolate eggs in the most beautiful pastel colours. When these came out of the oven I was struck by just how pretty and spring-inspired they are! Aren’t they just gorgeous??
