Cadbury Mini-Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies

A never-ending sea of cookies

Notwithstanding the any references to religiosity and zombie Jesus, I really rather enjoy Easter, with its crazy traditions of bunnies who give birth to chocolate eggs. It’s like a chocolaty, marshmallowy pastel acid trip of a holiday.

I mean, neon/pastel fluffy Little Peeps anyone?

So the cookies on the right are what happens when I combined my love of Cadbury eggs with my passion for chocolate chip cookies. Go Easter! Joyeuses Paques!

This recipe makes 4 dozen cookies (yes yes YES), but we baked 2 dozen and froze the rest. You can easily pre-ball the dough and layer in a tupperware with sheets of parchment in between. They’ll keep for a good long while– at least a few weeks.

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter
  • 2/3 c white sugar
  • 2/3 c brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tsp vanilla
  • 3 1/2 c flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2/3 c white chocolate chips
  • 2/3 c milk chocolate chips
  • 1 pkg dark chocolate Cadbury mini-eggs

Method

  • Preheat to 350

    Close your eyes and dream of pastel bunnies and neon marshmallow chicks.

  • Smash each Cadbury mini-egg (you can either chop with a knife or place in a ziplock bag and whack it with the heaviest textbook you have). Set aside.
  • Cream the butter and sugars with an electric beater. Add eggs and vanilla.
  • Whisk together the dry ingredients (but not the chocolate pieces) and fold in the chocolate chips and chocolate egg pieces.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to ball the cookies and baking on a silpat for about 10-12 min, or until the cookies are just golden brown enough to look delicious.

White Chocolate Cranberry Walnut Cookies

30 Jun

The full plate…

Still loving me some oat flour… Woke up on this somewhat cloudy day (drat for the fact that this is our last wkend in our apartment with a pool and it’s cloudy), too early as per usual. While Rafe got in another hour of sleep, I responded to some emails and stuck this in the oven… They turned out brilliantly!

Ingredients

  • 2/3 c oat flour
  • 2 pinches of salt, very scientific, I know
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 3 tbsp almond milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut flake
  • generous 2 tbsp white chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 1 tbsp chopped walnuts

Method

  • Preheat to 350. Pour flour into a bowl. Add salt and baking soda and whisk. Add brown sugar. Now pour in all the wets (vanilla, canola, milk) and mix until blended. Stir in white chocolate chips, coconut, craisins, and walnuts.
  • Lump into balls and flatten slightly onto silpat (or greased baking sheet). I made 8 cookies from this recipe. Bake for about 10 minutes.

And then there was one…

White Chocolate Cherry Bark

5 Feb

Yum. I’m rediscovering white chocolate. In honor of absolutely nothing at all, I made “bark” today. So freaking easy. So freaking tasty.

Ingredients

  • 1 c white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c dried cherries or cranberries, or if you’re like me, you’ll want to use both
  • 1/4 c slivered almonds (I didn’t have these, so I’m going to pretend these were in here)

Instructions

  • Melt chocolate chips in a glass measuring cup for ~2 min, taking it out to stir every 30 seconds
  • Spread out parchment over something flat. I used a cutting board.
  • Pour the melted chocolate onto the dried fruit and nuts, which you should have in a medium bowl. Stir until everything is coated. Then pour and flatten on your parchment sheet.
  • Freeze for 10 min and then break up into pieces of awesomeness.

White Chocolate Cherry Macadamia Cookies

22 Jan

Rafe and I have been making cookie dough, and balling up the dough and freezing it, so that whenever we want cookies, we can just toss a few of the balls into the oven and have like 4 or 6, instead of a gazillion. It’s really nice to be able to just say, on a random, Tues night, I want cookies, and be able to make them… So I made a batch this afternoon, and just baked 6 for us to have today, and froze the rest.

Anyway, this is one of the kinds of cookies that we made to give out in our out-of-town gift bags for our wedding. I love these. Hands down, my favorite cookie variety.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c butter (1 stick)
  • 1/2 c splenda sugar blend (or 1 c regular sugar)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • dash salt
  • 1/2 c dried cherries
  • 1/2 c white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 c chopped macadamia nuts

Instructions

  • Preheat to 325
  • Cream butter and sugar with electric beater. Add in egg and vanilla, continue to beat.
  • Whisk dry ingredients together (flour, baking soda, salt)
  • Mix the dry ingredients into the wet, a little at a time.
  • Then fold in the cherries, chocolate chips, and nuts.
  • Bake for 10-12 min or until slightly golden.
