  • ½ cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • ½ cup (110 grams) firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 4 ounces (115 grams) 45% cacao milk chocolate, melted
  • 2 large eggs (100 grams), room temperature

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat melted butter, sugars, melted chocolate, eggs, and extracts at medium speed until well combined.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. With mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating until combined. Add ½ cup (90 grams) crushed chocolate eggs and chocolate chunks, beating just until combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 325°F (170°C). Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Using a 1-ounce cookie scoop, scoop dough, and shape into ½-inch-thick disks. Place remaining 2 cups (360 grams) crushed chocolate eggs in a small bowl. Press each disk into candy eggs, coating well. Place 1½ inches apart on prepared pans.
  5. Bake until set, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool completely.

  1. These cookies taste really great. However, even though I followed the recipe as it was written, my cookies did not look like the ones pictured, which was disappointing. Mine spread A LOT, and I”m not sure why. My family still liked them, but they did not look as cute as what was pictured online. If I make them again, I”ll likely add more flour.
