Easter Egg Cookies: My favorite chocolate chip cookie dough is transformed into a holiday treat with festive egg-shaped M&M’s!

Easter Egg Cookies - Festive holiday cookies studded with chocolate discs and M&M'sEaster Egg Cookies: for Kids of All Ages!

When I spotted the Milk Chocolate Speck-tacular Eggs by M&M’s at Target, I knew they needed to go into some cookies ASAP. Bill put the kibosh on Easter egg hunts a couple years ago (I think he may have had a point since my baby was shaving!), so I started to pick up some of the kids’ favorite Easter candies to transform them into desserts.

I made a half batch of Jacques Torres’ Secret Chocolate Chip cookie dough and added the festive egg-shaped M&M’s to make these cute Easter Egg Cookies. If you’re a chocolate chip cookie fan and have not tried this recipe, you MUST. The combination of cake and bread flours, the use of chocolate discs instead of chips (chips will be fine, though, if you can’t find feves or discs), and the overnight resting time all contribute to these delectable chewy wonders.

  1. Easter egg hunts are sooo much fun with little kids around…Guess they do grow up eventually. (I still have to correct myself to say younger brother instead of little brother.)

    Anyway, your cookies look dee-lightful…In Japanese baking, bread flour always adds a fabulous taste and texture so I am very much looking forward to trying out the Jacques Torres recipe.

  2. The cookies sound great! Love your fun napkins too:@)

  3. Ah so cute Liz. What a brilliant cookie deco idea. =)

  4. Sometimes I wish I lived near you, drop by and taste every thing you make Liz. They look amazing, of course! And now your description of the recipe has me wanting to try it, and you know I´m not a cookie person. Will my neighbours mind if I give these sweeties to them? ja!

  5. Happy Easter Liz and Easter cookies with those target little treats are adorable. Ohh how I miss Target stores as not one here in Hong Kong but I am sure we save money just not living close to one. I swear it is hard to go into that store for just one thing.

  6. I can’t think of a better way to use Easter candy than in baked goods. I have got to find those egg-shaped M&M’s and try the cookie recipe.

  7. These cookies look delicious! Mmm

  8. Yayyy! Love this cookie recipe and love how you easter-fied it!

  9. That darn Target! lol I was there too and saw holiday M&M’s, but I haven’t seen the speckled ones. I’ll have to look today! Your cookies look beautiful! Perfect for Easter!

  10. Oh, how adorable! My girls would love these, Lizzy! Perfect Easter cookies 🙂

  11. *sigh* Now I need to go to Target!

  12. I always get caught tempted by the seasonal candy at Target and usually end up coming home and baking with it. These are great, Liz!

  13. These are so festive looking! I am intrigued by letting the dough rest over night. That must add a great texture to the cookies. I have to try this! Yum

  14. I don’t see anyway these could not be fantastic! What a perfect Easter twist on the tried and true chocolate chip cookie.

  15. Those cookies look absolutely delicious! Any time I have the patience to let dough rest overnight, I’m happy with the results.

  16. Great idea! Delicious!

  17. Great looking cookies! That Jacques Torres recipe is good. But leaving cookie dough overnight in the refrigerator is dangerous – too many opportunities to do a “quality control” tasting! But the resulting cookie (singular!) is delish. 😉 Good stuff – thanks.

  18. You’re never too old for an Easter egg hunt! But I love that you incorporate the tradition into baking. These cookies are so beautiful!

  19. You’re photos always make me smile… and love the cute bunnies too 😉 Beautiful cookies- yum!

  20. What a delightful idea and so pretty! I am not sure when the Easter egg hunts stopped in our house. I guess they died a natural death when Dario no longer asked for one. He has moved on to greater things!

  21. Liz, these cookies sound and look amazing. However, I disagree with Bill one is never ever too old for an Easter egg hunt 🙂

    Happy Easter to you and your family!

  22. I have been in the cookie mood lately and after looking at all these photos of cookies I now think tomorrow I am going to do some baking.

  23. These are so very pretty, perfect for Easter!

  24. I am dying for a bite my friend, your cookies look brilliant 🙂

  25. Lizzy,
    Your cookies look adorable. I wish I had some right now.

  26. I have been looking all over for Easter M & M’s and they must be sold out. First year without them. What a great idea to use them for Easter cookies! Love it!

    Buona Pasqua cara amica!

  27. How have I missed these M&M’s? Now I am on a mission to find them so I could try these beautiful cookies. Happy Easter to you and your family!

  28. What lovely Easter cookies, Liz! It’ll surely bright any Easter table…

  29. So so pretty ! Those cookies look perfectly yummy , Lizzy 😀

  30. These cookies are so fun for Easter!

  31. Liz, I’m sure u must be proud of these colourful cookies! Happy Easter!!

  32. Aw so cute and classic Ester Egg Cookies! My kids have been waiting for the egg hunt but they don’t know we’ll be traveling! >_< I may make these simple cookies before leaving so they won't miss any fun part of Easter. 🙂

  33. ¡Te han quedado preciosas! Me encanta la combinación de colores, y los m&m en vez de chispitas de chocolate, me apunto la receta.

  34. I used that cookie dough for the first time last week. Fantastic! Love that you added M&Ms. Always a joy for me. Perfect for Easter joy!

  35. Oooh boy – now this is a cookie recipe I need to try! Thanks for sharing!

  36. These cookies look delicious! I love the spring color from the M&Ms!

  37. These cookies would light up any Easter dessert table. I have a few inches of snow on the ground today.. but the beautiful pastel colors are putting me in the Spring spirit anyway. 🙂

  38. What delightful cookies!! I was just thinking of making cookies of some kind for Easter and these look like just the thing.

  40. What great looking Easter cookies!

  41. You and Bill are hilarious and these cookies are amazing!!!

  42. Looks like I better make this tomorrow so they will be ready for the kids on Friday. How about Peanut butter M&M’s or Carrot Cake M&M’s? Would they work??

  43. Yum, these look like the perfect easter cookies! 🙂

  44. Those are the most adorable chocolate chip cookies ever! I have not tried the recipe you’ve mentioned, but now I must! Beautiful pics…!

  45. Seeing these photos just made me smile. They just shout “Easter!” How interesting that the recipe calls for both cake and bread flour. They must have such a great texture.

  46. Awwww, man…..why do I have to have this cookie craving now? I had dinner late, then started wishing I had cookies I saw on tv programs we were watching, LOL! Your cookies would totally satisfy my craving, they look so soft, and delicious!!! Hugs, Terra

  47. Thanks for bringing this delicious sounding recipe to the party. I am committed to my chocolate chip cookie recipe but I may have to try this now. Happy Easter! Linda

  48. I ve made the recipe as well and also did a half batch. Your dough base looks drop dead perfect! And the eggs with the cute colors, just icing on the cake. Or cookie 🙂
