Mini Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies
A tried and true favorite, now with the perfect Instagrammable look for Easter. We’ve made a few adjustments to simplify the recipe, but if you love baking from scratch, check out the original recipe from Sprinkles and Scribbles.
- Chocolate chip cookie mix of choice (we used Betty Crocker)
- 1 cup mini eggs roughly chopped/crushed
- ¼ cup pastel-colored sprinkles
- Prepare the chocolate chip cookie mix according to the package instructions. For Betty Crocker mix, mix the melted butter, egg, and cookie mix.
- Fold in the crushed mini eggs and sprinkles to the rest of the batter.
- Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F. for 9–11 minutes. Let cool for 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet.
Easter Egg Cake Balls
These are so cute you (almost) won’t want to eat them. This is a simplified version of the original concept by Petite Fete.
- 1 package of cake mix of choice (we used yellow cake!)
- 1 16-oz package of prepared frosting of choice
- 14 oz chocolate candy melts of desired colors (or white chocolate candy melts + food coloring)
- Tubes of decorating icing of desired colors
*These ingredients may vary depending on the cake mix you chose. Be sure to prepare the cake mix according to the instructions on the package.
- Bake the cake according to the instructions on the packages and let cool completely.
- Use your hands to completely crumble the cake into a bowl as finely as possible and stir in the frosting. Chill cake mixture in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
- Roll cake mixture into 1 ½ -inch egg-shaped balls and arrange on a baking sheet.
- Melt the chocolate candy melts in the microwave for about 20 seconds, or until completely melted. Dip cake balls in the melted chocolate. Decorate with sprinkles. Once cooled, decorate with decorating icing and enjoy!
