If you’re feeling patriotic, these red, white and blue cake mix cookie bars are for you!  They are the perfect treat for a Fourth of July barbecue, Memorial Day Picnic or a kids baking project for a lazy summer day.  I’ve been dying to try the blue velvet cake mix and I was not disappointed-it’s light vanilla flavor pairs perfectly with the classic red velvet richness.  These red, white and blue cake mix cookie bars are just the best.

Like all of our cake mix cookies, these come together so easily and only require a few things!

Cadbury Mini Egg Chocolate Cookies

Cadbury Mini Eggs have hit store shelves! THIS IS NOT A DRILL. It’s time to make the most of those chocolatey jewels and whip up Cadbury Mini Egg Chocolate Cookies.

We were first inspired to create a blonde and buttery version of this cookie with regular milk chocolate Cadbury Mini Eggs which you can find here, but never one to be creatively limited in the kitchen, I saw fit to toss a few bags of the WHITE chocolate Cadbury Mini Eggs into my basket to see if my suspicions were true…that a chocolate cake mix cookie and a white chocolate egg could come together for sweet Easter bliss. 

I WAS RIGHT! 

Cadbury Mini Egg Chocolate Cookies have made all of my dreams come true. 

I was so skeptical about the white chocolate ones, but they are SO good with the chocolate cake mix.  The chocolate is like a cross between a brownie and a cookie-a huge hit with everyone that’s tried one!

The best part is that these are the EASIEST cookies that you’ll ever make. The most laborious part of the whole process is copping up the chocolate eggs! 

Cadbury Mini Egg Chocolate Cookies (A Cake Mix Cookie!)

1 box chocolate cake mix

5 Tbsp butter, melted

2 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 Cups white Cadbury White Chocolate Mini Eggs, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix together all ingredients.  Batter will be super sticky, I find it’s easiest to spread it by greasing your hand and spreading it in a 9×13 pan.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes.

I took them to a party and they were gone fast! We went with squares, but you could totally use a cute egg shaped cookie cutter to cut these into festive shapes for your Easter activities. The bonus of that scenario is that you’ll have extra bits and pieces from the cut-outs that you can snack on…or eat with ice cream. 

WHOA.
