Delicious, chewy, chocolaty Easter cookies that everyone will love! These Chewy Chocolate Cadbury Egg Cookies are SO simple to make with the BEST texture--a crisp outside and a soft, chewy inside. Everyone that tries these cookies immediately wants the recipe!!
Preheat oven to 350º F.
Cream butter and 2 cups of sugar in a large mixing bowl (leave remaining 1/4 cup of sugar to roll dough in). Add eggs and vanilla and blend well.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Blend into creamed mixture.
Using a spoon or cookie scoop, roll dough into balls, then roll in the 1/2 cup crushed Cadbury eggs. Then drop mixture onto uncreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-9 minutes. They will puff up slightly during baking and flatten upon cooling. Cool on cookie sheet until set, about one minute, then move to wire rack to cool completely.
