  • 3 Cups flour
  • 2 Full tins Ice Cream Cake Cane Sugar
  • 1 Cup light brown cane sugar
  • 1 Cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 3 Cups Cadbury® Milk Chocolate Mini Eggs
  • 1 Tsp baking soda
  • 2 Tsp distilled water
  • 1 Tsp California Sea Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • Remove butter from the fridge, and preheat oven to 350F.
  • Working in small batches, pulse 10 eggs at a time in a food processor for 1-2 seconds to split mini eggs in half/thirds, or use a heavy knife to rough chop.
  • Pour in packed light brown sugar and both tins of Ice Cream Cake Cane Sugar into a large bowl, and use a hand blender to cream with butter and vegetable oil.
  • Crack in eggs and egg yolk, blending until just incorporated.
  • In a small glass, whisk together baking soda and warm water, then pour in bowl, along with California Sea Salt.
  • Sift in flour, pour in rough chopped mini eggs, and fold everything together to combine.
  • Use a ice cream scooper to get roughly the same amount of dough for each cookie, roll into balls, and arrange with on 2 ungreased baking trays with about 1-1 1/2" space between each ball.
  • Pop in the oven, and cook for 9-10 minutes, or until tops are are just showing the slightest bit of browning.
  • Cool on a rack for 5 minutes before enjoying.
  • If you're making these ahead of time for Easter, vacuum seal them, or put them in a zip lock bag with all of the air pressed out - they're a lovely extra treat in Easter baskets.
