Made for around Easter time, these mini eggs are a stunning treat. Filled with milk chocolate, they make for a stunning addition to various recipes.
Mini Egg Cookie Bars
- 275 g Plain Flour
- 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 tbsp Cornflour
- 115 g Unsalted Butter/Stork
- 55 g Granulated Sugar
- 135 g Light Brown Sugar
- 1 Medium Egg
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 300 g Mini Eggs
- 100 g Milk Chocolate Chips
Preheat your oven to 190C/170C Fan and line a 9x9inch Square Tin with parchment paper, and leave to the side for now.
Whisk/Mix the Plain Flour, Bicarbonate, Salt and Cornflour together so its evenly distributed – leave to the side.
In a larger bowl, melt the butter. Add in the two sugars, and whisk for about 2 minutes so the sugar starts to dissolve and the mixture is smooth. Add in the Egg and the Vanilla, and whisk again briefly till smooth. (I used an electric whisk)
Add in the Dry Ingredients, the Mini Eggs (apart from a handful), and the Chocolate Chips and mix with a spatula till a thick cookie dough is formed.
Press the mixture into the bottom of the tin and press in the handful of Mini Eggs into the top for decoration. Bake the traybake in the oven for 18-22 minutes, until the top of the cookie bake looks ‘dry’!
Leave the cookie bake to cool for about 10 minutes, then leave to cool fully on a wire rack. Cut the bake into 4×4 for decent sizes, or 5×5 for smaller ones! Enjoy!
