Easy Creme Egg Cookies – deliciously crispy & chewy!

Easy Creme Egg Cookies - delicious chewy cookies perfect for Easter!via @fabfood4allThese Easy Creme Egg Cookies are just divine. I love pecan nuts so decided to combine these with dark chocolate to complement the yummy Creme Egg on these crispy on the outside and gooey in the middle cookies. Can you believe I started out last week trying to cut down on sugar and banned myself from eating any chocolate in a bid to shift the Christmas weight gain! But the call of the Creme Eggs in the drawer was too strong and I was just itching to make something new with them this year as it’s become a bit of a tradition to create a sweet treat each Easter.

As I’d already made Brownies and Fudge with Creme Eggs I decided it was the turn of the cookie to have a Creme Egg makeover. To say my family loved these is an understatement and I think they would rival the cookies in that famous cookie store that you find in most shopping centres. This recipe makes about 26 large cookies so is ideal for school bake sales or perhaps you are going to raise funds for Red Nose Day which is on 24th March this year. Easy Creme Egg Cookies are great for kids to make as they can help mixing, shaping the dough into balls and pushing the half Creme Eggs onto the top of each cookie.

    1. Camilla

      I’m sure they would Michele, I can’t believe we only have 3 left of the 26 and haven’t given any away!!

  14. kellie@foodtoglow

    You may be amused to know that I’ve pinned these lovelies in “Damn The Diet” 😉 A wonderful way to fall off the no-sugar wagon.

    1. Camilla

      LOL Kelly, I had 2 today, the “diet” is definitely damned:-)

  15. Choclette

    These look gorgeous Camilla. There are just too many good things to make and eat!

    I’ve pinned these, but haven’t added them to the #WeShouldCocoa round-up as I used your pancakes and it’s only one entry per month. Hope that doesn’t put you off for next month.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Choclette, sorry, didn’t spot that rule!

  16. Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes

    Soft and chewy is exactly how I love my cookies. These look like a great one to make with the kids in the Easter holidays.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Jemma, they are great for kids to make:-)

  17. Dannii

    Cookies should always be chewy in my opinion and these look chewy and delicious. My husband is creme egg obsessed, so I will have to make these for him.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Dannii, I’m sure your husband will love them:-)

  18. Katie Bryson

    OH wow, these look totally uh-mazing! So easy to make too, I’m going to have to give them a whirl with the boys. I can’t imagine they’ll last very long once they’re out of the oven though….

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Katie, I’m sure they’ll love making and eating them:-)

  19. Amy Fidler

    Great recipe x but i’d have to change the egg,as don’t like how creme eggs taste anymore x

    1. Camilla

      As it’s just half a mini egg on a giant cookie I don’t really think with the dark chocolate and pecans that you’d detect any difference in the Creme Egg taste:-)

  20. Heather Haigh

    I have to make these for my hubby – he’s mad about cream eggs.

    1. Camilla

      You will Heather, he’ll love them-)

  21. Sarah

    I’ve been trying hard to cut back on chocolate but have allowed myself a treat every so often. I love pecans too and chewy cookies! Win – win!

    1. Camilla

      They really are a win-win Sarah:-)

  22. Emma @ Supper in the Suburbs

    I feel your pain Camilla. Everytime i try to go back on a diet i find a reason to eat naughty things! These look delicious – hopefully I have the will power to save them for Easter! Will pin them for now 🙂

    1. Camilla

      LOL thanks Emma, I’m glad I’m not the only one:-)
