Ingredients For Giant Mini Egg Cookie

The ingredients for this recipe are typical of a chocolate chip cookie recipe.

  • Butter. We use melted salted butter for this recipe.
  • Brown Sugar. This ingredient gives this recipe a caramel flavour and colour. Brown sugar also works as a liquid ingredient and an acid to help with the leavening agents.
  • White Sugar. Sweeter than brown sugar, this is where the cookie gets it sweetness.
  • Eggs. Large eggs are used.
  • Vanilla Extract. Pure vanilla extract is our go-to but artificial extract can also be used.
  • All-Purpose Flour. We don’t sift flour for our recipes, but the flour is scooped and leveled in the measuring cup for accuracy.
  • Baking Soda and Baking Powder. Both of these help to create the texture of the cookie.
  • Salt. Very little is needed because we use salted butter.
  • Chocolate Chips. Dark chocolate complements the Mini Eggs.
  • Mini Eggs. Brand-name or generic brand candy-coated eggs can be used in this recipe.

Tips For Making This Giant Cookie

To make this giant Mini Egg Cookie, a 10-inch tart pan is what we use to bake it.  A cake pan can also be used to bake this cookie. Or a 13″ by 9″ rectangle cake pan.

After baking for 20-25 minutes, the cookie should be covered with foil wrap to avoid the top getting over-baked.

The mini eggs are easy to break into pieces with a rolling pin. Place the eggs in a freezer bag and seal. Then place the bag on a wooden cutting board and hit it with a wooden rolling pin or a meat mallet.

Does This Giant Mini Egg Cookie Need Icing?

The simple answer is no. The icing serves more as a decoration than anything for this recipe.

The icing can also be any colour you want it to be. We usually change it up when making this dessert. If we are serving more than one at a time, we will change the border colour for each one for contrast.

How To Serve This Dessert

This dessert can be sliced like a pie or into squares. It depends on how many servings you want to have.

Adding a scoop of ice cream and chocolate drizzle over the cookie slices makes this dessert more decadent. Vanilla or mint chocolate chip ice cream are good choices to serve with this cookie.

Storing Leftover Cookie

After cooling, this cookie lasts up to 2 days at room temperature in an air-tight container or tightly wrapped in plastic wrap.

Freezing this giant cookie is also a great way to store leftovers. Wrap slices in plastic wrap and store in a freezer bag or air-tight container in the freezer for up to three months. Thaw at room temperature before serving.
