Crème Egg Stuffed Cookies Recipe | Easter Bakes 2023!

Hello lovelies,

Well my fellow readers, the next holiday is fast approaching and you best get your aprons on, as I’ve got some blooming delicious bakes coming your way over the next 4 weeks which I’m incredibly excited to share with you guys.

If you hadn’t already guessed the holiday I’m talking about, it’s Easter and I honestly cannot believe how quickly it has come around this year. It only feels like Christmas was yesterday and now we’re onto the next big holiday on the calendar. Madness.

One thing I LOVE about this time of year is the incredible chocolates and sweet treats which begin hitting the shelves. My little noggin automatically starts recipe planning and has me itching to get into the kitchen to get creating.

One recipe which has been on my mind for a while now has been these cookies I’m sharing with you today. I’ve seen the queen of baking herself Jane Patisserie share her version online and to be completely honest with you, I’ve thought about these cookies everyday since stumbling across her blogpost (i mean most 24 year olds are thinking about holidays or the next big festival.. not me… I’m thinking about cookies. Sad, I know haha).

So, guess what I’m about to say? You can’t guess? Oh that’s okay… your girl obviously got into the kitchen and made a batch of these cookies herself.

I mean, common, what isn’t there to love about these cookies? Whoever thought of stuffing a crème egg, the royalty of Easter chocolate, into a cookie is a pure bloody genius. Actually, I’d personally like to shake their hand because these are pretty darn close to what I’d call perfection.

Ultra chocolatey, sweet, gooey goodness! Sound like something you or a loved one would enjoy? Then keep reading as the recipe is below.

{FYI: I mainly followed Jane’s recipe for these cookies. Here’s her recipe:}

Category: Sweet Treat

Serves: 10

Prep Time: 30-40 Minutes

Freezing Time: 1 Hour

Cook Time: 10-15 Minutes

Overall Time: 1.5 Hours

Ingredients You Need:

  • 10 Crème Eggs
  • 50g Of Milk Chocolate
  • 115g Of Unsalted Butter
  • 175g Of Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2tsp Of Vanilla Exteact
  • 235g Of Plain Flour
  • 40g Of Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2tsp Of Bicarbonate Of Soda
  • 1tbsp Of Cornflour
  • 100g Of Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 100g Of Dark Chocolate Chips

How To Prepare Creme Eggs:

  • Firstly gather together your equipment and ingredients.
  • Secondly, place all the creme eggs into the freezer for around one hour (this allows the creme eggs to go solid).
  • Once the hour is up, take your creme eggs out the freezer and place onto a plate.
  • Now, in a microwaveable bowl, place 50g of broken up milk chocolate. Then, place the chocolate into the microwave and in 30 second blasts, blast the chocolate until fully melted.
  • Take the melted chocolate out the microwave and using a spoon or knife, coat a thick layer of the melted chocolate around the edges of the creme eggs.
  • (The split in the centre of the creme egg sometimes has little holes so coating that with chocolate makes sure that the filling doesn’t escape whilst the cookies are cooking).
  • Place onto a plate and back into the fridge whilst preparing the cookie dough to allow the chocolate to harden.

How To Make The Cookies:

  • Firstly, line two baking trays with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 200C / 180C Fan / Gas Mark 5.
  • Secondly, in a large bowl, using an electric whisk, beat together the 115g of unsalted butter with 175g of light brown sugar until light and fluffy in texture.
  • Next, beat in the 1 large egg and 2tsp of vanilla extract.
  • Add the 100g of milk chocolate chips and 100g of dark chocolate chips to the large bowl with the wet ingredients and fold through.
  • Now, in a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the 235g of plain flour, 40g of cocoa powder, 1/2tsp of bicarbonate of soda and 1tbsp cornflour.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients a little at a time making sure it is throughly mixed through after every addition. It should come together as a ball (TIP: if the mixture feels a little dry and crumbly, add a small dash of milk to moisten. If the mixture feels too wet, add a small amount of flour).
  • Once you’ve got your cookie dough ball, remove the creme eggs from the fridge.
  • Using a cookie scoop (or hands if you don’t have a scoop), take a scoop of the cookie dough and flatten it into the palm of your hand.
  • Place one of the frozen creme egg to the middle of the flattened cookie dough and then with your hands, mould the cookie dough around the creme egg until the egg is completely covered and undetectable (in the end they will just look like balls of cookies dough).
  • Repeat the steps above until all 10 frozen creme eggs have been used and covered.
  • Place the cookies onto the baking trays (I’d recommend doing 3 per baking tray as they spread slightly).
  • Place the trays into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes (this depends on personal preference, I’d recommend 9-10 minutes if you want them ultra gooey but the longer you bake them, the less gooey they’ll be and the more set the cookie will be).
  • Finally, once baked, leave to cool slightly on the baking trays before demolishing!

That’s my Crème Egg Stuffed Cookies prepared, baked and ready for you to enjoy!

You can’t tell me that these cookies aren’t making your mouth drool, because they sure are mine.

Please note that I do know and understand that Easter is not celebrated by everyone BUT if your able to eat / feel comfortable eating what we call ‘Easter’ chocolates, I’d highly recommend giving my upcoming bakes a try. Yes, I’ve classed these as Easter bakes being that the chocolate is Easter themed but let’s be honest here, most people start indulging in Easter chocolates WAY before Easter actually arrives. So enjoy if you can!

I hope your as excited as I am for the upcoming bakes! I’ve worked my lil booty off preparing these and I’m beyond happy with the outcome of each post.

Let me know in the comments below if you make these cookies yourself and if you do, what your thoughts are on them. Did these just become a firm favourite of yours too?

Sending you all tons of love & hugs as always,

Elle xo
