Did the Easter bunny overfill the baskets this morning? I’m certain your wee ones would donate some of their sweets so you can whip up some of these Easter Candy Brownie Cookies!
Easter Candy Brownie Cookies
I adore putting leftover candy into cookies and brownies. Who doesn’t love the crunch of toffee in a chocolate chip cookie? Or a caramel Rolo inside a sugar cookie?
I first made these brownie cookies with semisweet and white chocolate chips, but found them a terrific receptacle for all sorts of candies. That’s how these Easter candy brownie cookies came to be.
These chewy brownie cookies have been a hit with my family for over a decade. Just one spoonful of batter sold me on these gems. A perfect flavor replica of those chocolate brownies we all adore.
And soft and chewy. Did I mention chewy? Just don’t watch so you don’t over bake these babies.
Use whatever add ins you’d like–chocolate, peanut butter or butterscotch chips, nuts, chocolate chunks or feves. Or the ever popular M&M’s. These candy coated chocolates tend to crack in the oven, so I always reserve a few to press into the hot from the oven cookies for the perfect finishing touch.
This Easter Cookie Cake is another wonderful idea to utilize leftover candy.
