Why You’ll Love Cadbury Chocolate Chip Cookies

This chocolate chip cookie recipe will be your new go-to! They come together in a cinch so the kids 🧑‍🍳 can get involved and help decorate with the chocolate eggs. These cookies are chocolatey, soft and gooey, and oh-so-chewy thanks to the addition of brown sugar in this recipe. These look really pretty and colorful on an Easter🐰dessert table, too. So grab a cold glass of milk and enjoy!

How to Prepare Cadbury Chocolate Chip Cookies

🔥 First, preheat the oven to 375°F (190C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

🧈 Next, in the bowl of a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, add the softened butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Then mix the ingredients until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes.

🍫 Now, add the flour and baking soda to the bowl, and mix with a rubber spatula until well incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips.

🥄 Next, use a tablespoon measure or mini scooper to scoop the dough into equal-size balls then place on the baking sheet.

🥚 Press 3 Cadbury Mini Eggs into each dough ball.

⏲ Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned.

🍪 Finally, cool the cookies on a cooling rack and enjoy!

Nonna’s Tip

The recipe directions say to bake for 10 to 12 minutes, but keep an eye on the cookies. The bake time will ultimately depend on your oven. The cookies are ready when the bottoms are golden and they’re still slightly soft in the centre.

Variations and Substitutions for Cadbury Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. You are more than welcome to use semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate-chips, walnuts, or anything else you desire.
  2. You can definitely use coconut sugar instead of brown sugar or even reduce the sugar a bit as well if they are too sweet to your liking.
  3. If you need to make these cookies gluten-free, you can try using a 1-1 gluten-free flour substitute.

Common Questions

DO you have a tip for softening butter quickly?

If I forget to take the butter out of the fridge, I’ll take the exact amount of butter I need for the recipe and cube it into small pieces. Then, lay the pieces out in a single layer on a dish and they should soften up in no time!

can the cookie dough be made ahead of time?

Yes you certainly can make this cookie dough ahead of time. Either store the dough in the fridge for the next day or freeze it for ready-to-go cookies when you need them. Be sure to wrap the dough really well in plastic wrap before chilling or freezing.

how do I store the chocolate chip cookies?

The chocolate chip cookies can be stored in an airtight container after they are fully cooled for a few days (if they last that long!).

What kind of chocolate is best?

This chocolate chip cookie recipe calls for dark chocolate chips, but you are more than welcome to use semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips or even walnuts would be delicious.

is there any way to cut the sugar in this chocolate chip cookie recipe?

You can definitely use coconut sugar instead of brown sugar here, or even reduce the sugar a bit altogether if they are too sweet to your liking.

Why did my cookies come out too flat?

A few reasons could result in flat cookies. Firstly, make sure that your baking soda is NOT expired. Next, your butter could have been too soft. Next time, pop your dough back into the fridge to firm up again for a few minutes before baking and that should help reduce the spread. Finally, it’s super important to cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, around 2 to 3 minutes in this recipe.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
