Tools I used for this simple chocolate chip cookie recipe:

  • USA Pan Half Sheet Pan – my go-to sheet pans, these are truly non-stick and clean up nicely.
  • KitchenAid 6 Qt. Stand Mixer – I always recommend a stand mixer as it saves time and helps to keep baked goods consistent.
  • Rubber Spatula – a must for any home baker! Perfect for scrapping cookie dough out of the mixing bowl.

Instructions for the one-bowl Easter Monster Cookies:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugars. Whisk to combine. Add in the eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla.
  • Add in the dry ingredients. Mix until fully combined, careful not to overmix. Mix in the oats, mini chocolate chips, and crushed Cadbury eggs*.
  • Cover and allow the dough to chill for 30 minutes. 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 9-11 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! Or crush them in a food processor.

Pro tips for best results:

  • Use a portion scoop
  • Chill for 30 minutes so butter solidifies, stopping cookies from spreading out too thin
  • Top with a hearty amount of chocolate chips or eggs
  • Baking on parchment paper or silicone mats can help with sticking
  • Start baking time at 9 minutes and add more time as needed
  • Use a round cookie cutter or round lid to scoot the cookies into a perfect circle after baking
