Is it even Easter weekend if you don’t do a bit of baking? Every year without fail, I seem to get cravings for the little pieces of chocolatey goodness which are Cadbury’s Mini Eggs. I stumbled across this traybake recipe online and knew that I had to give it a go this Easter bank holiday weekend. So here it is – Mini Egg Cookie Bars!
- 275g plain flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp cornflour
- 115g unsalted butter
- 55g granulated sugar
- 135g light brown sugar
- 1 medium egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 300g Cadbury Mini Eggs
- 100g milk chocolate chips
- Pre-heat oven to 190C (fan 170) and line a square baking tin with greaseproof paper.
- Mix the plain flour, baking powder, salt and cornflour together and put aside.
- In a separate bowl, melt the butter, add in the two sugars, and whisk until the sugar starts to dissolve and the mixture is smooth. Add the egg and the vanilla extract and whisk again until smooth.
- Add in the dry ingredients, the Mini Eggs (apart from a handful), and the chocolate chips and mix with a spatula until a thick cookie dough is formed.
- Press the mixture into the bottom of the baking tin and press in the handful of Mini Eggs into the top for decoration.
- Bake in the oven for 18-22 minutes, until the top of the cookie bake looks dry. Use a toothpick to test – if it comes out sticky with dough, it needs a bit longer. When it comes out clean, it’s done!
- Remove from the oven and leave to cool for about 10 minutes, then transfer the cookie bake onto a wire rack to cool fully.
- Cut the bake into squares to make Mini Egg Cookie Bars. Serve and enjoy!
