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.

Chocolate Pudding Cookies with Mini Robin Eggs on A fun cookie for spring and Easter!

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.
