My Mini Egg Cookie Slices Recipe

Yes, I know it's early and we've only just got Christmas out of the way but when the Easter chocolate comes out, I'm going to buy it. To be fair to myself, I haven't gone too mad just yet, I'm pacing myself but I would be lying if I said I hadn't had a creme egg or two yet. Every year when Easter comes around I like to try and do a few seasonal bakes and this year I really want to make more than ever. I've got creme egg brownies planned and a few cakes which I'm hoping will turn out okay but the first thing I've made is these Mini Egg Cookie Slices. I was definitely inspired by Jane's Patisserie who has all the Easter bakes you could possibly imagine on her website but I just tweaked a few ingredients and measurements to suit what I had in. If you're looking for an easy bake that is sure to impress, look no further.

Ingredients:
115g butter
55g granulated sugar
135g light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
275g plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tbsp cornflour
Sprinkle of salt
300g Mini Eggs (I used 296g as that's what the bag was)
50g milk chocolate, broken into chunks

Method:
1. Pre-heat your oven to 190 degrees (170 fan) and grease and line a large square baking tin
2. In a saucepan, melt your butter then add in your granulated sugar and light brown sugar
3. Using an electric whisk if possible, whisk the mixture until smooth and the sugar has dissolved
4. Add in your egg and vanilla extract and whisk again until combined 
5. In a separate bowl, weight out your plain flour, bicarbonate of soda, cornflour and sprinkle of salt. Give it a gentle mix then pour into your wet mixture
6. Stir your wet and dry mixtures together until fully combined and then pour in your Mini Eggs (leave a handful to the side) and your chocolate chunks
7. When you have mixed in your chocolate and Mini Eggs, you should have a thick cookie dough so now you can tip it into your baking tin
8. Spread out the cookie dough into the tin, getting it as even as possible then gently push in your remaining handful of mini eggs
9. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes then leave to cool for 10 minutes in the baking tin
10. After 10 minutes, remove from the tin and leave to cool completely on a wire rack. When cool, cut into slices!

This mixture made 16 squares so plenty for you to enjoy! What I love about these cookie slices is how they're the perfect combination of gooey yet chewy. The middle is soft and the Mini Eggs have melted slightly but the top has a nice crunch to it. They actually taste a little like blondies to me but I love them so I'm not complaining at all.

I already can't wait to make these again. They're very sweet but incredibly moreish and just the perfect bake for the run up to Easter.

Have you got any Easter bakes planned?

They look so nice. I always used to opt for Milky Bar eggs rather than mini eggs but I bet they taste amazing x

This cookies sound incredible!! The only problem is that, even though I adore mini eggs, they hate my teeth! I literally chipped a tooth on one! xDD
