Cadbury Chip Cookies

These Easter cookies are full of dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and mini cadbury egg pieces!

Yield: 12 cookies



Ingredients:

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened (see note)

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 1/2 cups (180g) all-purpose flour (see note)

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips

  • 1/2 cup Cadbury mini eggs, roughly chopped (see note)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Cut the butter stick into 4 pieces and place in your stand mixer.

  3. On a low setting, start beating the butter and then add the sugar, mixing until just combined and there are no visible chunks of butter (1-2 minutes).

  4. Mix in the vanilla and egg.

  5. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl and then pour in the flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly mix until just combined.

  6. Add in the dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and Cadbury mini eggs. Pulse the mixer until the chocolate is evenly distributed.

  7. Use a cookie scoop or a heaping tablespoon to portion out 12 cookies and place 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.

  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden and cool on a baking rack.

Notes:

  • Butter: Soften the butter either by leaving on the counter for 30 minutes or heating in the microwave for 5-15 seconds until it is soft enough to leave an indentation but firm enough to still be solid. Make sure you don't soften too much or the dough will be too soft. I do this by rotating it every 3-4 seconds so it evenly softens.

  • Flour: Elevation plays a role in the amount of flour you need. If you aren't at a high elevation, start with 1 cup and add from there.

  • Cadbury eggs: These are kind of tough to chop with a knife so I put them in a ziploc and hit with a rolling pin a few times.

  • Doubling: This recipe doubles very easily to make 24 cookies!


Top Tips for Soft Cookies

  • Mix as little as possible! Creaming the butter and sugar a lot will whip in too much air and result in cake-like cookies. Mixing too much after the flour is added will cause too much gluten development, resulting in firm cookies. Always leave the mixer speed on low and only mix until just combined.

  • Make sure the butter is not too soft (see Notes section) or the cookies will spread out too much in the oven. If your dough is soft and sticky, refrigerate the dough for 15-30 minutes before baking.

  • Use a cookie scoop to portion out the dough evenly. This is my favorite one from Amazon (commissionable link).

  • I usually pull the cookies out of the oven just before they look done. The edges will start to turn golden brown, but the top will still look moist. I'd rather have an under-baked cookie instead of an over-baked cookie and you can always throw them back in the oven for a few more minutes if needed.
