Chocolate Cadbury Egg Cookies

It was just about last year around this time when I started to discover the wonderful world of food blogs, and here a year later and I have at least 40 blogs that I check out on a regular basis and at least a thousand more to discover! Some of you may be thinking, "wow, she must have a lot of time on her hands..." I have a busy 2 year old that keeps me busy during the day times but at night after he's in bed and my husband is back to studying (he's in law school right now) I crack open the computer and scour the internet for yummy recipes and drool over all of your spectacular pictures!

One of the websites that is a favorite and I'm sure a lot of you know of it and would agree with me is ourbestbites.com...amazing! One of the first websites that I looked at and it had this chocolate Cadbury egg cookie recipe that looked like it would be OUT OF THIS WORLD!! Sometimes looks can be deceiving, but not in this case. I made these cookies to take to our Easter dinner and they were gone before dessert even rolled around. The Cadbury eggs are made from a higher quality cocoa then your tollhouse chocolate chips (not that I don't love you tollhouse, I buy the gallon size bags of you at least once a month!) so when you are eating the cookie and part of the egg melts in your mouth you'll look down to see that your socks are no longer on, because they've been knocked off due to the extreme yumminess of the Cadbury cookie! So enjoy!

Chocolate Cadbury Egg Cookies

1/2 cup Crisco Shortening (butter flavor)
1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup Granulated Sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 1/2 cups Flour
6 Tablespoons unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 bag Cadbury miniature eggs (10 oz bag) (NOT the creme eggs)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Place Cadbury eggs in a heavy duty plastic storage bag and, using a wooden rolling pin or meat tenderizer, (this is a chance to get out some aggression!) break up the Cadbury eggs into smaller chunks. You can put them in whole which is still yummy but the I like to get a little piece of the Cadbury chocolate in every bite!
3. In a large mixing bowl or a stand mixer, cream the butter and both sugars until they are light and fluffy, then mix in eggs and vanilla until smooth.
5. In a separate bowl, mix together baking powder, baking soda, salt, flour and cocoa powder. Add to the wet ingredients and mix. 
6. Add the Cadbury eggs and stir just until they are fully incorporated.
7. Drop 2" size balls onto an ungreased (or parchment paper lined) cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes.

Do NOT overbake these cookies, they are meant to be soft and slightly doughy, kind of like a brownie!

This is a great recipe. I love those little mini eggs, I buy a bag and hide them from the girls (mom's like candy too). I'm going to have to try these and lull myself into a chocolate coma.
