Chocolate Pudding Cookies with Mini Robin Eggs

Jump to Recipe

Easter is on Sunday and I am excited. Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. When I was little, I loved picking out an Easter dress, dying eggs with my siblings, hunting for eggs, and eating Easter candy. I don’t pick out a frilly dress and bonnet anymore, but I still enjoy the holiday-especially the Easter candy. There are so many fun varieties of Easter candy. Josh brought home a bag of Mini Robin Eggs-the malted milk eggs with a colorful candy coating. I ate a few and then decided to make a batch of Chocolate Pudding Cookies with Mini Robin Eggs.

I love pudding cookies. This time I went with chocolate. The pudding kept the cookies soft and added a nice chocolaty flavor. I also stirred in milk chocolate chips and chopped up Mini Robin Eggs. The Mini Robin Eggs candy added a pop of color and a nice crunch to the cookies.

  1. Too cute! These would be perfect to put out as an Easter dessert. I haven’t see the mini eggs yet (but I haven’t really checked out the easter candy too)- I bet they’re a big seller!

  2. Chocolate pudding cookies have been a long-treasured cookie recipe in my box. Every time I make them they make people happy. I have dressed them up with PB chips and nuts and such, but I think some Easter Candy would be even more perfect.

  3. I just ate my first one out of the oven – so yummy! I’ve never made pudding cookies before. My husband is going to have a nice surprise when he gets home! — Thanks – great recipe and perfect for the time of year!

  4. I am obsessed with cookies. I’m pretty sure part of that obsession is to be blamed on the pregnancy hormones. I whipped a batch ( or two ) last night and they were amazing and pretty due to the lovely pastel colors. Thanks so much for the recipe.

  5. I too am pregnant and constantly crave cookies – when I came across your recipe I knew I HAD to make them! They are fantastic! I couldn’t find the Mini Robin Eggs this morning at the grocery store so substituted Easter colored M&M’s instead… still yummy but will have to try the Robin Egg versions next time. YUM!

  6. Most of the time, I can turn down candy, but those malted milk balls are my total weakness. I buy bags of them every year just I can have some after the holiday is over. What a great idea to make cookies with them!

  7. I can’t use the excuse that I’m pregnant, as my second son is now 9-months old. I’ll just say that my household consists of cookie monsters, and this mama of two is just a piggy. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing the recipe! I’ve got the first batch in the over as we speak! Can’t wait to try these little treats out!

  8. I made these yesterday with my niece and we both loved them. They may not make it into anyone else’s mouth! I love how the robin’s eggs candies sort of melt while baking.

  9. I made these for Easter Sunday, but was unable to locate either mini robin eggs or malted milk balls. So, I used Reese’s pieces mini-eggs and they were a hit! Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe!

  10. Okay, so I made these the other day and they sure didn’t last very long! πŸ˜€ They’re fantastic! The next day, all I did was re-heat it (because I love my cookies with melted chocolate ALL the time), and that’s pretty much all I ate the rest of the day. lol No, really. I’m sure my doctor wouldn’t like that. My hubby was mad that the cookie jar emptied so quickly. He told me I needed to make some so that he could take them to work. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the recipe!

    Oh, btw….I had a really hard time getting these off of the pan. I guess it’s because of the candy coating. And I don’t think it helped that I doubled the amount of robin’s egg candy either. lol All I had was wax paper, and that didn’t help. I ended up just spraying a pan with cooking spray. It still stuck, but at least I didn’t have to sit there and remove the paper. I need to buy me a SILPAT pronto!

  11. Are these supposed to be made with pudding mix still dry and powder, or made into pudding? I’m baking them right now, and I used the dry mix, and they turned into a very dry dough that I could handle with my hands and have them come out perfectly clean, kind of like shortbread dough. Is that how it should be?

  12. Hi Maria,
    I made these cookies a few days ago. My family LOVED them!! So soft and not too chocolaty. This will be a keeper. Thanks for a great recipe!
