Mini chocolate eggs thumbprint cookies will be my go-to this Easter! As I said last week, Easter to me is chocolate all over!
Call it how you like it. I have never been religious and growing up it was an excuse for time with the family and chocolate overload.
The easter egg I love is far too expensive. Also far from home, it’s not the same. But, there is no absolute reason to pass on chocolate, so mini chocolate eggs cookies for the win!
Out of the three of us, I am the one with less cooking and baking skills, no fear or shame in admitting it. During Christmas, I managed to kill a pavlova and fluked plenty of other dinners. But luckily the girls still love me anyway!
I accept that is not my forte. But I have a sweet tooth that is very difficult to ever tame. So when Simona suggested these I was all for it!
They’re the easiest to make and must admit, the easiest to eat! The day after I only counted four left, but I digress! So I will praise them just once more and then get to the recipe, I swear!
Now imagine. A cookie the size of your thumb, covered in chocolate (Nutella for us, because why not) and on top mini chocolate eggs (we got this from Ocado, but you can find them everywhere). The recipe for these mini chocolate eggs thumbprint cookies is following because by now you must be hating me!
- 113 g unsalted butter
- 100 g white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 220 g flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- Nutella or chocolate spread
- mini chocolate eggs
- Turn on the oven at 180 ° C.
- In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
- Beat in the egg and vanilla to the mix.
- Add the dry ingredients to the mix and unite everything together.
- Roll the mix in small round balls and bake for 10 minutes at 180 ° C.
- remove from the oven and with the back of a teaspoon, push the middle down to create some space for the chocolate.
- Let them cool down completely on a rack- around 30 minutes.
- Fill the middle of the cookies with Nutella or any chocolate spread you prefer and decorate with mini chocolate eggs.
Make sure you leave the cookies to cool down before adding the topping or the nutella will overflow and the mini eggs will melt.
Honestly, they were a hit at home and Fred and I stuffed our faces with it, no regrets! I love how easy they are to bake and foolproof even for someone that doesn’t enjoy baking. I think they would be a great baking project with kids as they’re quite easy to make and fun to decorate.
