  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place chocolate eggs into a resealable plastic bag; seal the bag. Mash chocolate eggs with a heavy measuring cup a few times. You don't want them pulverized, just cracked into small-to-medium-sized pieces.
  3. Combine flour, cornstarch, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Add butter. Beat using an electric mixer until you get a workable dough. Add the crushed chocolate eggs and mix until well combined.
  4. Roll dough into ping pong-sized balls. Flatten balls slightly and lay onto the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the very edges of the cookies start to brown, about 22 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Add about 1 tablespoon of butter if dough is too dry at the end of Step 3.

We added 2tbsp of milk to bring the dough together and cooked at 325F instead of 275F to get a decent cookie.
