Mini-Egg Cookies

Inspiration:  My Dad’s favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies made to be Easter-tastic with Mini-Eggs.

My boyfriend fiance is mad at me for making these Mini-Egg Chocolate Cookies because these cookies are so delicious that he can’t stop eating them. I even hid them in the deep-freezer, but the sneaky guy found the cookies this morning and I caught him munching on one for breakfast. He may ban me from the kitchen soon if I do not stop baking such scrumptious treats.

I used Hershey’s Eggies for these cookies rather than Cabury Mini-Eggs for two reasons:  one, the Eggies were on sale at Safeway and two, my dear friend is a sales representative for Hershey’s and I always try to support the company that she works for.

Raising the bar on my favorite chewy chocolate chip cookies for Easter. Substitute Mini-Eggs or Eggies for the chocolate chips and we have a cookie that can't be beat. I bet you can't eat just one!
