Cadbury Egg Cookie Bars

Remember last week when I made Squash Chips? Those were healthy. Then I went on a crazy sweets kick. First monkey cupcakes, then chocolate cupcakes filled with vanilla buttercream and now…Cadbury Mini Eggs Cookie Bars.

I was innocently checking out at Target the other night when the Royal Dark Cadbury Mini Eggs started calling my name. I don’t eat the cream filled eggs. Ew.

But the mini eggs? Especially the dark chocolate ones? Those I look forward to every year. I hadn’t even finished eating all the cupcakes yet when I made these.

If you have any leftover, make some Easter Basket Cookie Cups, too.

  • Preheat oven to 375° F.
  • Grease a 15 x 10 jelly roll pan and set aside. I use The Pampered Chef Stoneware pan.
  • Pour one cup of Cadbury Mini Eggs into a zip top bag, seal it pressing out any air, and then and smash with a rolling pin. Or, you could coarsely chop them. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda & salt and stir.
  • In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until creamy.
  • One at a time, add each egg, beating well after each addition.
  • In thirds, gradually beat in the flour mixture.
  • Stir in the crushed Cadbury eggs until evenly distributed.
  • Spread into a greased jelly roll pan. Press a few whole Cadbury eggs into the top of the cookie dough.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out cleanly. Let cool completely before cutting into bars.


Depending on the size of your jelly roll pan, you may have some extra dough. I typically have enough for six cookies in addition to the bars.
Store leftovers covered at room temperature for up to a week.

    These look beyond delicious – I adore Cadbury mini eggs, but have never put them into anything (usually just eaten them all straight from the bag!).

    Stopping by from Marvellous Mondays.

    Hope you have a wonderful week.

    I’m in the uk, these look amazing, but can I ask….what’s a jelly roll pan please.sorry if that sounds silly 😁😉
    Thank you. I’m gona give these a try, mini eggs r my favourite 😍 😋

    • Melissa Williams says

      Not silly! A jelly roll pan is basically a cookie sheet with a lip (I think I linked one above). You can also use a 9×13 or 8×11 baking dish.
