Review This Recipe
The cookies were very good but I used Sugar Coated Eggs instead of chocolate eggs to give the cookies some extra color, and they looked cute. The glaze really made the cookie delicious for me, but you really can only eat one or two at a time because of all the chocolate.
Nice Easter Treats
I just finished baking these pretty little cookies. My grandson tasted and gave me the thumbs up. (He is 7) I could not find the Nestle eggs, I checked at three supermarkets. I used peanut butter filled eggs instead. Very tasty.
chocolate easter egg cookies
THE EASTER BUNNY AT OUR HOUSE JUST LOVED THESE YUMMY COOKIES. THEY ARE EASY TO MAKE AND BAKE. GREAT RECIPE. THE COKIES REMIND ME OF THE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES WITH THE CHOCOLATE KISS IN THE MIDDLE. THESE ARE A NEW TWIST,WITH A DIFFERNT FLAVOR.
These cookies were very easy to make. I took these to a church function and everyone wanted the recipe. A great cookie for seasonal functions.
These are easy to make and they are delicious. I added different flavored chocolate eggs to make them all a little different. The extra topping makes them very elegant looking.
