Chocolate Easter Egg Cookies

These Chocolate Easter Egg Cookies Easter Treats are pretty much as adorable and as fun as it gets. And they're easy to make! Make them with your kids, or maybe have the Easter Bunny leave them! The sky is the limit with Easter fun.

Me here for a bit! My family will always call my bluff about March, since it has been/is incredibly blustery and snowy, but I’m enamored with the second half of March. It’s the leprechauns, the junk cereal, and the green milk and toilet water. Then it’s Easter Egg hunts, our local “Meltdown” book and music event in town, and all of the wonders of Easter. This is not a terribly busy work week but I have appointments, concerts, birthday celebrations, galore. My little sister gave birth to the 9th grandchild! Maxwell Levi! So I’m going to try to visit with them this week too. For a 4-day week, it’s chock full of cheer.

I’m not sure I’d have it/would know it any other way.

We made these cookies over the weekend, on a rare day of not being double booked. This was post Easter Egg Hunt #1, and pre Scarlet play date #2. They’re easy and fun enough, but the best part is how good they look after they’re done!

Also, who wouldn’t love the chance to have fun with some piping? I’m still trying to perfect it.

Ingredients:

1 box of chocolate cake mix, any brand
2 eggs
2 tbsp. flour
1/2 C. vegetable oil

Directions:

1 – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

2 – Combine the cake mix, eggs, flour and vegetable oil

3 – Roll the cookie dough into 2″ balls and place them 2″ apart on a baking sheet

4 – Bake for 8-10 minutes

5 – Remove from the oven and let cool

Frosting Ingredients:

3 C. powdered sugar
1/2 C. butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2-3 tbsp. milk
Disposable piping bag
Grass round frosting tip
Green food coloring
1 large package of Cadbury Mini Eggs (M&M’s peanut butter eggs work great too)

Directions:

1 – Combine the powdered sugar, melted butter and vanilla extract

2 – Add the milk as needed

3 – Add a few drops of green food coloring

Cookie Directions:

1 – Attach the frosting tip to the disposable piping bag and fill with frosting

2 – Once the cookies have cooled, gently squeeze the frosting out of the piping bag, gently pulling up to make ‘grass’ on top of each cookie

3 – Place 2-3 eggs on top of each cookie

4 – Repeat

  1. I miss Easter egg hunts – so much fun! These cookies are adorable and look so delicious! And congratulations on your new nephew!

  2. I love the Cadbury eggs. My girls don’t like jelly beans, so these were always plentiful in the Easter baskets. Very cute! Now if we could just warm up around here I’d be quite happy:)

    1. As a kid, I only liked black jellybeans so my parents would give me a whole Easter basket full of black ones that they took out of the rest of the Easter baskets, that were filled with rainbow ones!

  3. I totally don’t think I have that grass frosting tip. Looks like a trip to Michaels is in order! I have so many but I’m missing that one and I want my easter cupcakes to be perfect!
