Leftover Easter Chocolate Cookies - Recipe!

Easter is over and I know that we still have a ton of chocolate left over despite me only buying the girls 1 big Easter egg each much to their annoyance. I have spoilt them in the past buying several but this year I was the mean mam who said one large egg is more than enough. Other people didn't get the memo though and gave them eggs, hehehe We are grateful for them and it just means that we have plenty of chocolate left over to do some baking in the last day of the Easter holidays.

Leftover Easter Chocolate Cookies - Recipe

Leftover Easter Chocolate Cookies
Makes 10 Cookies


120g of unsalted butter, softened.
180g of demerara sugar.
1 egg.
300g of plain flour.
1 tea spoon of bicarbonate of soda.
Half a teaspoon of salt.
200g chopped Easter chocolate and extra for topping.


Electric hand mixer.
Mixing bowl.
Baking tray, lined with parchment.
Cooling rack.


Preheat your oven to 180°C (fan).

Cream together the butter and sugar in the mixing bowl before the adding the egg and mixing until combined.

Add in the flour, bicarbonate and salt. Mix together until a dough begins to form. At this stage, add in your chopped up Easter chocolate and continue to mix until the chocolate is evenly distributed. 

Weigh the dough into 80g balls and place on the lined baking tray (gently push some whole mini eggs into the dough balls now if you have them). If you only have one tray, bake these 4 or 5 at a time as they will need space to spread.

Bake for 10 minutes, then rotate the tray and bake for a further 4-5 minutes until just golden. The cookies will continue to bake for a while as they cool.

Let the cookies rest on the cooling rack until warm to the touch before topping with any other leftover chocolate you have to hand. The chocolate will melt from the warmth and solidify again by the time the cookies are cool enough to eat.

Do you have any Easter chocolate left over?

  1. These look delicious! And a lovely simple recipe too. My children received a good amount of Easter chocolate this year too and have far too much to get through by themselves, but I've already eaten my two eggs!

  2. I did this one year with out leftover chocolate candies too! I even tried looking up recipes to use up leftover jelly beans but we didn't like any of them. This year each of my boys got 2 chocolate bunnies and that is it! I didn't even have a bite and I'm pretty proud of that.

  3. Ooo these look lovely cookies and a. Great way to use up leftover chocolate x #mmbc

  4. What the heck is left over chocolate? it doesn't exist in my house lol

  5. Delicious cookies! I didn't buy lots of eggs this year. Got a Golden apple for Eddie rather than an egg, but then he wanted to have some of my chocolate pomegranate too.

  6. We always end up with cupboards full of Easter eggs well after Easter, even though we've ate our body weight in chocolate! Haha. These cookies are a fab way to use some up! x
