Easter Monster Cookies

These Easter monster cookies are loaded with oats, Cadbury mini chocolate eggs, and mini chocolate chips. These cookies are soft and chewy with the perfect hint of cinnamon. Cadbury mini eggs can easy be crushed with the side of a knife. Simply scoop and chill the cookie dough for 30 minutes and the cookies are ready to bake. So fun for Easter!

Simply make the cookie dough according to the recipe, scoop even sized amounts of dough onto a sheet pan and place in the freezer until hard. Transfer the cookie dough to an airtight container or freezer bag labeled with the date, type of cookie, and baking instructions. Keep in your freezer stash for 6-8 months. Remove desired amount when needed, bake, and enjoy! You may even want to make a double batch!

Instructions for the Easter Monster Cookies:

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, set aside. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat liners.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a hand mixer, combine the butter and sugars. Cream for 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla.
  • Scrape down sides and slowly add in the dry ingredients. Mix until fully combined. Add in the oats, mini chocolate chips, and crushed Cadbury eggs*, gently mix in on low until incorporated.
  • Cover and allow the dough to chill for 30 minutes, overnight if needed. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Using a measuring spoon or portion scoop, scoop even sized balls of cookie dough – roughly 1 oz. per cookie. Arrange evenly on the prepared cookie sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie.
  • Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, cookies will still be soft. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.

Notes:

**Crush the Cadbury eggs by using the side of a knife and gently pressing down, this is easier than trying the cut through them!
